Phillies | Ryan Howard finding power stroke

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 17:30:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves Sunday, April 26, and all three of his home runs this season have come in his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: After managing just two RBIs in his first 11 games, Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has seven in his last five games. He could keep the momentum going when Philadelphia opens up a series against St. Louis Monday, April 27. He is hitting .362 in 57 career games against the Cardinals and offers nice upside for the price at FantasyScore.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz receives day off

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 07:49:25 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 26. C Cameron Rupp will be the start catcher for the Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely is receiving the day off since it is a day game after a night game. Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not done much at the plate this season and is not a strong option for owners on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez starting at 3B

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 07:40:07 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Cesar Hernandez will be the starting third baseman against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has posted a solid .261 batting average so far this season but only has three RBI in 13 games. Owners on FantasyScore likely will be able to find a better option to use on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Cody Asche not in lineup

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 07:39:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Cody Asche is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: Asche ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is off to a solid start this season and likely will return to the lineup for the next game. Cesar Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start at third base, but owners may want to look for other options to use at the position.

Phillies | Jonathan Papelbon dealing with illness

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 06:01:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon (illness) was not available to pitch Friday, April 24, because he is dealing with an illness and stayed home, according to manager Ryne Sandberg.

Fantasy Tip: Papelbon could miss a few days because of the illness but should not be sidelined for very long. Papelbon has picked up three saves so far this season and should be in starting lineups as long as he is healthy.

Phillies | Ben Revere hitting leadoff

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 11:33:42 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood Friday, April 24. OF Odubel Herrera was dropped to the second spot in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Revere ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is just flopping spots with Herrera Friday night, so it's not a big lineup shakeup. Revere has disappointed his owners with his start to 2015, going 10-for-53 (.189) with four stolen bases. Despite hitting .341 (61-for-179) in 2014 against lefties, Revere is a weak FantasyScore option tonight against Wood.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis resting

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:17:39 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. SS Andres Blanco is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP David Phelps.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder that won't excite many folks at FantasyScore today, even while facing the underwhelming Phelps.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz sitting Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:15:55 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. C Cameron Rupp is starting behind the dish and hitting sixth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP David Phelps.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz is off to a rough start this year and is being rested during a day game after a night tilt. Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has two hits in 15 at-bats this year, and isn't a recommended catching option at FantasyScore in an already weak Phillies lineup that is resting most of their regulars today.

Phillies | Ryan Howard out Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 07:21:52 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is out of the lineup Thursday, April 23, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Darin Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of your cap) is in there against Bartolo Colon, but he's just 3-for-30 (.100) to open the season. Avoid him on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Chase Utley sitting

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 07:10:11 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is out of the lineup Thursday, April 23, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Cesar Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is in there against Bartolo Colon. Hernandez has little FantasyScore appeal.

Phillies | No run support for Cole Hamels

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 20:45:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels allowed one unearned run, five hits and three walks over six innings in a no-decision Wednesday, April 22, against the Miami Marlins. He also recorded five strikeouts in the 106-pitch quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,800; 15.6% of cap) is winless in four starts despite a respectable 3.75 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. The problem has been the Phillies have totaled just six runs in his four games started this season. FantasyScore owners will still like his 23 strikeouts over 24 innings, but be mindful wins will be hard to come by.

Phillies | Sean O'Sullivan placed on DL

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 20:45:07 -0700

The Philadelphia Phillies placed SP Sean O'Sullivan (back) on the 15-day disabled list due to a back injury Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: O'Sullivan will be replaced in the rotation Thursday against the Marlins by Dustin McGowan, who will pitch three or four innings before turning it over to another reliever. At $3,000 (or 6.0% of cap) O'Sullivan should be avoided until he is 100 percent healthy and facing a favorable ultra-matchup.

Phillies | Dustin McGowan to start Thursday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 20:44:02 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Dustin McGowan will draw the start Thursday, April 23, against the Miami Marlins in place of the injured SP Sean O'Sullivan (knee).

Fantasy Tip: McGowan isn't expected to go more than three or four innings, so fantasy players will want to steer far clear of this situation.

Phillies | Chase Utley snaps hitless skid

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 20:43:35 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley had a first-inning single Wednesday, April 22, against the Miami Marlins to snap a 21 at-bat hitless skid.

Fantasy Tip: It was his only hit in four at-bats and he is still hitting a paltry .120 for the season. FantasyScore owners would be wise to avoid Utley, even at a tempting price of $2,900 (or 5.8% of cap), until he starts to produce better results.

Phillies | Jerome Williams posts quality start

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 22:29:21 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerome Williams allowed three runs - two earned - and eight hits over six innings for his first win of the season Tuesday, April 21, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Williams also posted six strikeouts in the 94-pitch quality start. You have to pick and choose your spots with Williams in FantasyScore ($3,200; 6.4% of cap), but he proved Tuesday he can still be useful.
