Phillies | Odubel Herrera shines versus Diamondbacks

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 22:58:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera notched his fifth career four-hit game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday, June 27, going 4-for-5 with an RBI single and two runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera increased his average this month to .284 following Monday's effort, which is much more in line with .313 and .324 marks he posted in April and May, respectively. Somewhat surprisingly, Herrera is a top-20 fantasy outfielder, so he needs to remain in lineups for the foreseeable future.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos is hitting .375 this month and hits lefties to a .327 clip. Madison Bumgarner isn't your typical lefty, but Bourjos has upside tonight. Blanco has minimal fantasy intrigue, but Paredes doesn't at this point.

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.

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:41:15 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera went 3-for-4 with one RBI against the Detroit Tigers Monday, May 23, but was benched late in the game for lack of hustle.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera has picked up at least one hit in 15 of the 20 games this month and currently has a .335 batting average this season. He is an attractive option for owners looking for batting average help, but owners will need to see if he will be benched for a game because of his lack of hustle.

He entered Monday's game with a .335 batting average and should be a fine starting option when he plays.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera walking much more

Mon, 16 May 2016 16:07:57 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera had 28 walks last year in 537 plate appearances. This season, he's already walked 29 times in just 164 plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: It's a very revealing stat that shows how quickly Herrera has evolved as a top-of-the-order hitter for the Phillies. The second-year outfielder exhibited some solid flashes throughout his rookie campaign and he's been everything the club could have wanted this season, carrying a desirable.333/.448/.467 line with four home runs and six steals into the middle of May.
