Phillies | Ryan Howard not playing

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:47:17 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the lineup against New York Mets left-handed SP Jon Niese Tuesday, Sept. 1. OF Darin Ruf is starting at first base and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has notable power for daily owners, and he does have a slash line of .365/.430/.581 with an OPS of 1.011 against left-handers in 74 at-bats this season. He's a sleeper pick on FantasyScore tonight worth considering if you need to save money elsewhere.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera resting Tuesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:36:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1. SS Darnell Sweeney is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against New York Mets SP Jon Niese.

Fantasy Tip: Sweeney ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has only three hits in 12 at-bats for the Phils since being called up, but two of those knocks were home runs. Still, he's a low-end FantasyScore commodity until we see more, even hitting in a great daily spot in the lineup tonight.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur receives start

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:15:46 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur will start in right field against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Monday, Aug. 31, and is batting fifth in the lineup. OF Cody Asche is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting .298 with three home runs and nine RBI this month and could be a cheaper starting option on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Four hits for Odubel Herrera

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 15:54:24 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera had four singles Sunday, Aug. 30, in a 9-4 loss to the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been a dominant player for a Rule 5 selection, and he has turned into a reliable hitter for the Phillies. It's been a decent season, and that price makes Herrera a decent FantasyScore option.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez playing third base

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:47:37 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Cesar Hernandez will bat leadoff and play third base against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Saturday, Aug. 29. 3B Andres Blanco is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has cooled off considerably recently. He is just 3-for-25 over the last seven days and should be avoided in FantasyScore tonight.

Phillies | Domonic Brown returns to lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:39:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown will bat sixth and play right field against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Saturday, Aug. 29. OF Aaron Altherr, who played right field Friday, Aug. 28, will bat third and play left field Saturday, with OF Cody Asche getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is batting only .175 with three home runs and 11 RBIs this month, so he should be ignored for fantasy purposes. Altherr ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 7-for-27 this season, with all of his hits having gone for extra bases (four doubles, one triple and two home runs). He could be worth a flier in FantasyScore tonight.

Phillies | Darnell Sweeney playing second base

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:37:24 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Darnell Sweeney will bat fifth and play second base against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Sweeney ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 2-for-10 with a solo home run in his brief major league career. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him until he has more of a track record to go on.

Phillies | Cameron Rupp drives in four runs

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:37:10 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp homered and drove in four runs against the San Diego Padres Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting .360 with six home runs and 16 RBIs during the month of August. He makes an excellent source of moderate cap relief in FantasyScore.

Phillies | Aaron Nola earns win Friday

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:28:58 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola (5-1) allowed one run on two hits over seven innings in a victory over the San Diego Padres Friday, Aug. 28, with two walks and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Nola ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) went 4-0 in six starts during the month of August and has won his last five decisions. He will make his next start against the New York Mets Wednesday, Sept. 2, at Citi Field.

Padres | No Matt Kemp against Phillies

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:17:42 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Travis Jankowski is playing right field and batting ninth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been on a tear since the All-Star break, and don't forget he finished 2014 strong, too. Make sure to avoid him in all fantasy formats Friday, though, as he is dealing with a sore shoulder. Expect him back sooner than later. FantasyScore players have no reason to target Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap), either.

Phillies | Aaron Altherr batting third against Friars

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:44:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Aaron Altherr is batting third against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Friday, Aug. 28. OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: It is the first game Altherr ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has started against a right-handed pitcher, and he checks out as a potential low-price flier for FantasyScore players Friday. Just note it isn't a great matcup, as Kennedy ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) has allowed three runs or fewer in 14 of his past 15 starts and owns a 2.63 ERA during the stretch. At this point, Brown ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation play in all fantasy formats, and you should aim higher.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur draws into lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:14:40 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in right field and batting fourth against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been drawing in against lefties frequently of late but owns an underwhelming .664 OPS against them. In fact, he is better against righties. Still, Francoeur is a viable value play at FantasyScore Thursday. Make sure to avoid Brown Thursday. The streaky outfielder owns a .182/.262/.345 slash line in August, and you should likely be aiming higher in all fantasy formats.

Phillies | Darin Ruf starting vs. lefty

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:06:51 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Darin Ruf is starting at first base and batting sixth against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Thursday, Aug. 27. 1B Ryan Howard is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Against southpaws, Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has a .366/.434/.549 slash line through 83 plate appearances this season. He is a viable low-priced option at FantasyScore Thursday. Howard ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been sneaky good of late with 17 RBI and a .304/.345/.519 slash line over his past 21 games. He could help down the stretch for seasonal teams chasing in home runs and RBI.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis dropped in the order

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:00:51 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is batting eighth against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Galvis ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been batting second in the order the past three games, but Andres Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) shifts back to the two-hole Thursday. It doesn't have a huge impact on Blanco who is a low-end flier at FantasyScore Thursday, but Galvis takes a huge value hit batting in front of the pitcher. You can avoid Galvis in daily contests Thursday.

Phillies | Maikel Franco likely to return

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:36:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (wrist) is expected to return to action later this season, according to interim manager Pete Mackanin.

Fantasy Tip: About a week ago, it appeared as though Franco ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) might be finished for the season, so this is good news for fantasy owners. Andres Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will continue to receive most of the starts at the hot corner for the Phils until he returns.
