Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting, platoon likely

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 09:11:48 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the lineup Thursday, July 24, against a right-handed pitcher. Manager Ryne Sandberg wants to get 1B Darin Ruf's feet wet after his recent call-up, but he also said that he's planning on using a platoon more frequently moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf should be added in NL-only and some deep mixed games. Howard is looking more droppable in mixed leagues by the day.

Phillies | Ryan Howard's future in question

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:12:07 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard was held out of the lineup Wednesday, July 23, against the San Francisco Giants. Manager Ryne Sandberg suggested the first base spot "will be a day-to-day thing," and that Howard's huge contract will not dictate playing time. "It's about wins and losses out here," Sandberg said. "When the game starts, it's about winning the game and being productive and chipping in and doing the part and doing something to help win a game. If that means playing somebody else there and there's production right away - that's trying to win a baseball game." OF Darin Ruf made the start at first base with a left-handed pitcher on the hill for San Francisco. He played four of his past five games at Triple-A at first base, so the team appears to have been planning an unofficial platoon type situation.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners cannot be pleased with the news, although it's hardly a surprise given Howard's low batting average. Fantasy owners knew what they were getting into before drafting Howard back in the spring. With the team out of contention, using some younger players in the lineup down the stretch wouldn't be surprising, so if you're a Howard owner, especially in daily leagues, picking up Ruf, and perhaps stashing Maikel Franco, is essential.

Philadelphia Phillies OF John Mayberry Jr. (wrist) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, July 22, with left wrist inflammation. In a corresponding move, 1B/OF Darin Ruf was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf is worth a flier in NL-only formats. He hit 14 home runs in 73 games last season, and he has a nice power pedigree at the minor league level.
