Phillies | Odubel Herrera sitting vs. the Fish

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 12:05:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. OF Tyler Goeddel is starting in left field and batting second against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Wednesday. Phillies OF Peter Bourjos also climbs into the leadoff spot with Herrera out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera has emerged as a solid fantasy option in all formats this season with 51 runs, 10 home runs, 33 RBI, 12 stolen bases and a .285/.369/.416 slash line. Goeddel is a desperation option in all fantasy settings given his .573 OPS for the season, but Bourjos could be a potential flier in daily contests Wednesday. Bourjos has an active 40-for-117 (.342 batting average) stretch at the plate since Wednesday, June 1.

Phillies | Two Phillies to soon patrol outfield

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 08:34:07 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Aaron Altherr (wrist) and OF Nick Williams are expected to be called up in the next few weeks. Altherr has a couple of weeks left on a rehab assignment, and Williams has hit safely in 26 of 28 games at Class AAA Lehigh Valley. OF Peter Bourjos and OF Cody Asche have the potential to lose their spots.

Fantasy Tip: Altherr had a .232-5-22 line with six steals in 142 at-bats last season, but he's coming off of wrist surgery. Williams has a .289-8-44 line at Triple-A. Neither are projected to make huge impacts, but both are NL-only depth options if you're looking ahead for potential callups.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos batting second vs. Mets

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:36:12 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos is batting second against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Friday, July 15. Philadelphia SS Freddy Galvis is batting seventh Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Galvis has been hitting in the two-hole most nights, so moving down the lineup is a hit to his already limited fantasy value. Bourjos is nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, but he could be worth a contrarian flier in daily contests because he's batting second Friday.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera out with foot issue

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 17:08:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera (foot) is not in the lineup against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, July 9. OF Peter Bourjos will bat leadoff and play center field against SP Tyler Anderson, and OF Jimmy Paredes will play right field and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Batting atop the lineup, Bourjos could be worth a flier in DFS formats. He is hitting .333 against lefties this season.

Phillies | Hitting streak ends for Peter Bourjos

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:16:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos saw his hitting streak come to an end at 14 games Wednesday, July 6, opposite the Atlanta Braves. He finished the contest 0-for-3 with an intentional walk.

Fantasy Tip: That snaps a really nice run for the journeyman outfielder, who managed to raise his batting average almost 50 points as a result of the hit streak. Unfortunately, that also may end his relevance for most leagues, too, as while he's been a fun player to ride since the second half of June, odds are he won't be able to experience nearly the same success in the coming weeks.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos keeps streak alive

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 19:21:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a solo home run in four at-bats Tuesday, July 5, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: The speedy Bourjos muscled up for his fourth homer of the season, smoking one off of Mike Foltynewicz in the very first inning. He has re-emerged as a decent play in most NL-only fantasy formats and DFS play.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos surging

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 11:24:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos is leading the majors with a .427 average since June 1.

Fantasy Tip: He also has two home runs, eight RBI and a stolen base in that time. Bourjos won't keep it up, and he doesn't offer much in the counting stats, but he has become attractive while hot in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos stays red-hot

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 19:19:11 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos extended his hitting streak to 13 games in style Monday, June 4, against the Atlanta Braves, going 3-for-3 with two doubles and two runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps in part because he isn't supplying the speed many might expect, Bourjos is flying under the radar in most leagues, but owners need to recognize he is 24-for-50, scored 13 times and clubbed two of his three homers this season during his streak. He doesn't quite check enough boxes to be useful yet in most leagues, but DFS owners may want to jump on his bandwagon soon.

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 18:25:46 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos extended his hitting streak to 11 games, going 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in a 6-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals Saturday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos' bat is going to cool off, but in the meantime, he could make a useful sleeper in DFS formats.
