Philadelphia Phillies minor league 2B Cesar Hernandez has been sent from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to Double-A Reading to play center field. He had been scheduled to participate in the International League's All-Star Game this week before the move. "He'll be playing exclusively in center field to see if that's an option for us," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Sunday, July 14. "He struggled yesterday but it's a new position for him. But we'll give him a shot." Amaro said the team is in the market for a center fielder following the injury to OF Ben Revere (ankle) but will consider internal options.

The Philadelphia Phillies placed 3B Michael Young on the bereavement list Wednesday, May 29, and recalled INF Cesar Hernandez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Young could miss as few as three games. Freddy Galvis will likely shift over to third base in the meantime, and any combination of Hernandez, Kevin Frandsen and Michael Martinez could play second base. Only Galvis should be owned in very deep leagues with Chase Utley (oblique) on the DL.

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley (rib cage) will have an MRI following his absence from the club's game on Tuesday, May 21. He was scratched after he felt pain and a burning sensation in the area following a swing during batting practice. Utley won't play on Wednesday, May 22. It sounds as if the test will take place on Thursday, May 23. If he lands on the disabled list, then Freddy Galvis would fill in at second base, and the club would probably recall INF Cesar Hernandez or 1B/OF Darin Ruf.
Fantasy Tip: This doesn't sound like a major injury, but a DL stint, one that could require more than the minimum stay, seems more than likely. Generally, teams don't like to mess around with these kinds of upper-body injuries because of how easily they're aggravated. It's a temporary setback to what has been a nice rebound for Utley, but it's something folks can deal with. Galvis would have value in deep mixed leagues in the interim.
