Phillies | Philadelphia resting four players

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 09:12:05 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Tommy Joseph, C Cameron Rupp, 2B Cesar Hernandez and OF Peter Bourjos are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke Saturday, June 18. 2B Andres Blanco will start at second base and is batting third. 1B Ryan Howard will start at first base and is batting fourth. OF Jimmy Paredes will start in right field and is batting fifth, while C Carlos Ruiz will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco, Howard and Ruiz are all hitting less than .200 over the last seven days and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Paredes is performing a little better at the plate over that span, but owners should be able to find better options for their lineups.

Phillies | Cameron Rupp out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:05:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 7, replaced by C Carlos Ruiz. Ruiz will bat eighth against Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: This is the other half of the platoon with Rupp and Ruiz, but it is the lighter half of the platoon. Ruiz does not play enough to merit starting in all formats, and his bat is not worth consideration in DFS lineups.

Phillies | Cameron Rupp out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:34:43 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp is not starting Tuesday, May 24, against the Detroit Tigers. C Carlos Ruiz is batting sixth against Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: This is merely the Ruiz half of the platoon getting a chance to play in a game. Although Ruiz is .294-2-4 in away games, he still carries little fantasy value in all formats because of the platoon situation and the low numbers this month (7-for-33, .212 average in May).

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:14:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Andres Blanco will bat third and start at second base against SP Williams Perez Saturday, May 21, with 2B Cesar Hernandez receiving the day off. In addition, C Carlos Ruiz will start behind the plate and bat sixth, while OF David Lough will play right field and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco and Ruiz have both been productive in limited playing time and are worth considering as value plays in daily fantasy contests. However, Lough has struggled at the plate and should be viewed as nothing more than desperation cap relief.

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:22:23 -0700

Phillies | Tommy Joseph making major league debut

Fri, 13 May 2016 14:05:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Tommy Joseph is starting at first base and is batting sixth against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan in his major league debut Friday, May 13. 1B Ryan Howard is starting on the bench against the left-hander. C Carlos Ruiz is in the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph was tearing it up in the minors and is finally healthy after three concussions in previous seasons. He should at least platoon with Howard at first base and face and is worth the immediate pickup in dynasty and NL-only leagues. Ruiz has looked much better this year at the plate than last and is certainly worth a low-priced flier in daily formats if you're looking to save money at the position against Finnegan.
