Phillies | Maikel Franco back on track

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 18:23:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco with a home run, three RBI and a run scored in an 11-5 win over the Chicago Cubs Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) sat out Thursday with a sore wrist, but he has three doubles and a homer in his last two games and doesn't appear to be bothered by the injury. Feel free to deploy him as you normally would at FantasyScore.

Phillies | Maikel Franco returns

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 10:09:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (elbow) returned to the lineup Friday, July 24, and faces Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has a tough matchup so it's plausible to give him a day to kick the rust off his swing for FantasyScore purposes.

Phillies | Maikel Franco out Wednesday

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 07:24:22 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (elbow) is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 22, with 2B Cesar Hernandez taking his spot in the three-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is not your prototypical three-hole hitter, and he has a mediocre .273-0-7 line this month. Jake Odorizzi presents a tough matchup, but he's a low-end option to consider on FantasyScore with the prime lineup spot.

Phillies | Maikel Franco may sit a few days

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:50:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (elbow) may not play until Friday, July 24, in order to allow his injured elbow to rest, according to interim manager Pete Mackanin.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch for any updates over the next few days to see when Franco ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) will be able to return. Andres Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) may start at third while Franco is out but is not a great fantasy option.

Phillies | Maikel Franco out Tuesday

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 11:00:05 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (elbow) will be out of the lineup Tuesday, July 21, with elbow discomfort.

Fantasy Tip: Cody Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will likely fill in against Nathan Karns and could be worth the plug and play on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Maikel Franco has sore elbow

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 21:37:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (elbow) is dealing with a sore elbow. He was lifted in the ninth inning as part of a double-switch Monday, July 20, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($4,700; or 9.4% of cap) is a risky play in FantasyScore heading into Tuesday's game. Wait to see him officially play until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Andres Blanco ($1,900; or 3.8% of cap) could start at the hot corner if he is forced to miss time.

Phillies | Maikel Franco starts July with a bang

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 19:27:42 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco went 3-for-4 with three doubles, a walk and a run scored in a 9-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) had eight home runs and 24 RBI in June, and he picked right up where he left off. The 22-year-old probably can't keep up his current pace, but in the meantime, he is worth a look at FantasyScore whenever he draws a decent matchup.

Phillies | Maikel Franco snaps skid

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 17:14:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco snapped a 0-for-10 slump, going 3-for-9 with three RBI and two runs scored combined in a doubleheader against the Washington Nationals Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) had piled up three homers and 10 RBI in the two games prior to the slump, and while the occasional skid can be expected from the youngster, he is showing enough upside to use him at FantasyScore against friendly matchups.

Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting out

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:59:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Saturday, June 27. 3B Maikel Franco will start at first base and is batting third, while SS Andres Blanco will start at third base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Franco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has recorded 13 hits and 11 RBI in his last seven games and should be a starting option on FantasyScore. Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has six RBI in his last three games and is hitting .292 in limited playing time in June, but owners may be able to find better options.

Phillies | Five more RBIs for Maikel Franco

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:37:49 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco went 2-for-3 with a double, home run, five RBIs and two runs scored Tuesday, June 23, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) has managed 10 RBIs over the past two games, and he has 10 homers since May 17. Needless to say, he is amped for his first career action at Yankee Stadium and is worth using in FantasyScore for the series finale Wednesday.
