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 | Jimmy Paredes, Tyler Goeddel draw starts

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 11:55:42 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OFs Jimmy Paredes and Tyler Goeddel are in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Thursday, June 16. Paredes is in right field and is hitting sixth, while Goeddel is starting in left field and batting seventh. OFs Cody Asche and Peter Bourjos will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Both Paredes and Goeddel have become outfield depth for the Phillies and see occasional starts. Paredes has a home run and five RBI in 27 at-bats for the Phils, while Goeddel is hitting .244 (30-for-123) with three long balls and 11 RBI. Both are limited somewhat offensively and qualify as deep sleepers in daily leagues.

Phillies | Tyler Goeddel not starting

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 07:53:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Tyler Goeddel is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark Saturday, June 11. OF Peter Bourjos will start in right field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos has been used as a pinch hitter in his last few appearances and has only one hit in his last 10 games. Boujos is not a great fantasy option and should be avoided in most leagues.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera resting Monday

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 11:13:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 6. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and is hitting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester. Also, 2B Cesar Hernandez moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez has a very favorable lineup spot hitting leadoff, but the lefty-lefty matchup against Lester makes him not all that attractive in daily contests. Bourjos has lost significant playing time of late with Cody Asche back from injury and with Jimmy Paredes in town. Bourjos should only be used as depth in deep NL-only leagues for his speed.

Phillies | Jimmy Paredes hitting third Thursday

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 12:53:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jimmy Paredes is starting in right field and is batting third against Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson Thursday, June 2. OF Peter Bourjos will start on the bench again.

Fantasy Tip: It's Paredes' first start with the Phils since being claimed off waivers this week. His presence will hurt the playing time of Bourjos, who at this point should only be rostered in NL-only leagues. Paredes had a career year with Baltimore in 2015 (.275-10-45) but is a mediocre outfield option in NL leagues that could struggle to find regular playing time.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos sitting vs. Washington

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 14:47:43 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 1. OF David Lough is starting in right field and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos sits with a .199/.231/.291 slash line through 151 plate appearances this season, and he is likely to receive less playing time going forward with Philadelphia looking to the future. Lough could be the beneficiary, but Wednesday, he is an ill-advised fantasy option facing Scherzer.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:03:18 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos is out of the lineup Tuesday, May 31, against the Washington Nationals. OF David Lough replaces Bourjos, and he will hit seventh against Nationals SP Joe Ross.

Fantasy Tip: This is merely a night off for Bourjos, a light hitter who does well on defense. Lough does hit .321 (9-for-28) at Citizens Bank Park, but there are better options for putting in your daily fantasy lineup.

Phillies | Cameron Rupp, Peter Bourjos out

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

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp and OF Peter Bourjos are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Sunday, May 15. C Carlos Ruiz will start behind the plate and bat fifth, while OF David Lough will play right field and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz is batting .291 with three home runs and six RBI in just 55 at-bats and makes an excellent value play in DFS this afternoon. Lough has limited upside and does not offer much more than salary cap relief.

Phillies | Darin Ruf to play throughout weekend

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:13:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Darin Ruf is expected to play in all three games this weekend against Milwaukee Brewers' right-handed pitchers while OF Peter Bourjos tinkers with his swing.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf will face Zach Davies Friday night, then Chase Anderson and Wily Peralta to finish off the three-game series. Those three arms aren't exactly lighting the world on fire, so as long as Ruf starts in all three contests, he has some intriguing sleeper potential in daily formats.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos sitting out

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:31:23 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Darin Ruf is starting in left field and hitting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies, while OF David Lough shifts over to right field.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf has dealt with a nagging injury this year and only has 18 at-bats (two hits) this year. Davies isn't an overpowering pitcher, and Ruf could do damage, but he's a risky deep sleeper in daily formats tonight.
