Braves | Hector Olivera hitting seventh Friday

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 12:59:49 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Hector Olivera is batting seventh Friday, Sept. 18, against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: Olivera ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitless in the last 13 at-bats and has an .089 average at Turner Field. It should come as no surprise that the Braves are sliding him down the lineup. Don't put him in your FantasyScore lineup for the time being.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski out of lineup Friday

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 12:51:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not starting Friday, Sept. 18, against the Philadelphia Phillies. C Christian Bethancourt is hitting eighth against Phillies SP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is not batting because Morgan, a lefty, is pitching for the Phillies. Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting .333 with four hits and a double in the past week, and he is a solid way to save a little money on your salary cap.

Braves | Nick Swisher not starting Friday

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 12:46:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Swisher is not starting Friday, Sept. 18, and OF Adonis Garcia is in Swisher's outfield spot. Garcia is hitting fourth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has an .059 mark in the last week and his average is tailing off, so he is out of the lineup despite his switch-hitting capability. Garcia ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .312-6-15 at home and is doing well in his extended tryout with the team. He's definitely worth starting at the FantasyScore price.

Braves | Jace Peterson out of Friday lineup

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 12:40:36 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 18, against the Philadelphia Phillies. 2B Daniel Castro is batting second against Phillies SP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is out because of the lefty vs. lefty matchup Morgan provides, so Castro ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) takes over the spot. He has hit .412 in the past week and has a .500 average against Morgan, so put him in your FantasyScore lineup with confidence and save on your salary cap.

Phillies | Alec Asher starting Wednesday

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 09:06:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Alec Asher will make the start against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, Sept. 16, instead of SP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: Asher ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has a 10.67 ERA with five home runs allowed in his three starts for the Phillies this year. You'll want to avoid him everywhere against the Nats and MVP favorite Bryce Harper.

MLB | Cubs vs. Phillies postponed

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 18:40:17 -0700

The game between the Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies has been postponed Thursday, Sept. 10, and will be played as part of a doubleheader Friday, Sept. 11. The Philadelphia Phillies will use SP Adam Morgan as their Game 1 starter, with SP Alec Asher starting Game 2. The Cubs did not announce who their starters would be.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Morgan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) nor Asher ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) warrant FantasyScore consideration at this point. Look elsewhere for better starting pitching options.

Phillies | Adam Morgan snaps winless skid

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 20:15:02 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan allowed two runs and five hits over six innings in a win Tuesday, July 28, against the Toronto Blue Jays, snapping a four-start winless skid.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the win, Morgan ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is still a risky FantasyScore play going forward as the Phillies have the worst run differential in the majors.

Phillies | Adam Morgan tosses quality start

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 19:38:22 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan (1-1) allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in a loss to the Atlanta Braves Friday, July 3. He walked two and struck out five.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has pitched well in both of his major league starts but faces a difficult task in his next outing Wednesday, July 8, when he is scheduled to face Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Avoid using him in FantasyScore next week.

Phillies | Adam Morgan earns another start

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 17:53:09 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan won his major league debut, allowing one run on six hits and striking out six in 5 2/3 innings against the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, June 21. After the game, manager Ryne Sandberg said Morgan had earned another start.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan was winless in the minors this year, so his strong debut was a bit surprising. It sounds like he will make at least one more start, but a repeat of Sunday's performance seems unlikely.
