Phillies | Market quiet for big names

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:42:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SPs Cliff Lee and A.J. Burnett, RP Jonathan Papelbon, and 1B Ryan Howard haven't attracted much serious interest in trade talks. Howard and Lee have almost no market, and Burnett and Papelbon's allure has been limited. The latter two have unattractive player options that are limiting interest. All four may be candidates for an August trade after the non-waiver deadline passes.

Fantasy Tip: Philly's efforts to blow things up aren't going so well, and fantasy players may have to wait a few more weeks for significant changes to happen.

Phillies | A.J. Burnett moves up strikeouts list

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 22:33:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett worked eight scoreless innings while allowing four hits and four walks in a no-decision Wednesday, July 23, against the San Francisco Giants. He also struck out six batters while throwing 131 pitches. He moved to 48th on the all-time strikeouts list, passing former New York Mets SP Dwight Gooden.

Fantasy Tip: Burnett is a trade target for plenty of contenders down the stretch, and his fantasy prospects could be about to improve dramatically, depending on where he lands. If he pitches like he did Wednesday, it won't matter where he is.

Phillies | A.J. Burnett wants to return to Pittsburgh

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 09:50:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett prefers the Pittsburgh Pirates as his next team, and Pittsburgh players are lobbying for his return. The player option on his deal may wind up being a road block to a trade, though.

Fantasy Tip: Pittsburgh's pitchers typically are more successful than most clubs', and they helped turn around Burnett's career in 2012. A reunion would be a boon for Burnett's fantasy worth.

Phillies | A.J. Burnett not looking for trade

Sun, 13 Jul 2014 19:56:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett said he is not looking for a trade and is not sure if he would be open to a trade if asked to waive his no-trade clause. "I'm not a guy who looks for an out or wants to get out because things aren't going the right way. If that happens, then it happens, but I'm not looking to move on. This is my team. I understand how things work, but I'm trying not to worry about it. I just try to go about my business and enjoy my teammates," Burnett said.
