Phillies | Carlos Zambrano could come up soon

Wed, 26 Jun 2013 11:28:15 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Carlos Zambrano will make another start for Triple-A Lehigh Valley Friday, June 28, before the team will have to make a decision on whether to bring him up. Zambrano is 1-0 with a 3.18 ERA, 17 strikeouts and nine walks in 16 innings for Lehigh Valley.

Fantasy Tip: If Zambrano is brought up, he'll only be an option for NL-only systems, and it's not even guaranteed that he'll be given a starting rotation spot.

Phillies | Scout not so sure about Carlos Zambrano

Sun, 09 Jun 2013 18:49:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies SP Carlos Zambrano threw 57 of his 97 pitches in his third minor-league start Saturday, June 8, for Double-A Reading. One scout in attendance was not overly enthusiastic about the veteran's outing. "He was a crafty guy up there," the scout said Sunday, June 9. "He wasn't like the old Carlos Zambrano. I wouldn't get my hopes up too high. He won't be anything close to what he used to be like." Zambrano said he is willing to do whatever the team asks of him, but added he'd rather not be a reliever.

Phillies | John Lannan close to rehab assignment

Wed, 29 May 2013 15:28:09 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP John Lannan (knee) faced hitters during a simulated game Wednesday, May 29, and will pitch in extended spring training once more before going on a minor league rehab assignment June 6. SP Carlos Zambrano, who pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings with Single-A Clearwater Tuesday, May 28, will need at least three more starts before being considered for the major league roster. The team has been lukewarm on the reports of Zambrano. He can request his release by July 1 if he's not on the major league roster.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Cloyd has struggled of late, so Lannan and Zambrano are knocking at the door if those struggles continue. Lannan is the more realistic option once he's healthy, but neither he nor Zambrano will be key pieces for mixed league rosters.

Phillies | Carlos Zambrano, John Lannan could enter rotation

Fri, 17 May 2013 15:46:57 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Carlos Zambrano will pitch two innings at extended spring training Saturday, May 18, and pitch every five days thereafter. SP John Lannan (knee) will throw a bullpen session early next week and is "closer, but he's not close" to coming back.

Fantasy Tip: Both Zambrano and Lannan could become options to take Roy Halladay's (shoulder) spot in the rotation with him out indefinitely. Both hurlers are dart throws in NL-only leagues if you're desperate.
