Phillies | Jeff Francoeur, Andres Blanco starting

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:47:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur and SS Andres Blanco are starting against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Tuesday, June 23. Francoeur is playing left field and hitting fifth, while Blanco is starting at third base and hitting seventh. 3B Maikel Franco moves over to first base, while 1B Ryan Howard serves as the designated hitter. OF Cody Asche will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are desperation sleeper plays on FantasyScore. Francoeur is 4-for-20 (.200) in his career against Sabathia. Franco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap), who hit two home runs last night, continues to be an attractive daily commodity at his price, especially while facing a lefty that has struggled against righty sticks this year.

Phillies | Cody Asche not playing

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 10:00:04 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Cody Asche is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Sunday, June 14. OF Jeff Francoeur will be the starting left fielder and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has been struggling at the plate this month, so he is receiving a day off. Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has seven hits and RBI over the last six games and could be a cheaper option to consider on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur starting Wednesday

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 09:10:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in right field and hitting sixth against Cincinnati Reds SP Jon Moscot Wednesday, June 10. OF Cody Asche is sitting the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) still has some pop but is too inconsistent to consider other than once a blue moon with a great pitching matchup in daily games. He's facing a young pitcher making just his second major league start today, but Francoeur still isn't attractive other than a desperation lotto ticket as a deep sleeper.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera back in two-spot

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 07:59:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera is starting in center field and hitting second in the order Sunday, June 7, against the San Francisco Giants and RHP Ryan Vogelsong. OF Jeff Francoeur is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting just .232 against righties, but he has hit nine doubles and his lone home run against right-handed pitchers this season. With Vogelsong prone to the occasional disaster, Herrera can be used in GPP tournaments.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera sitting out Thursday

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 12:35:40 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 4. OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in right field and hitting second in the batting order against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera is currently in a 3-for-24 (.125) funk at the plate. Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) does have all three of his home runs against right-handed pitchers, but his inconsistent bat makes for a weak and risky option on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Ben Revere sitting Wednesday

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 11:35:54 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in right field and hitting second in the batting order against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) isn't someone to hang your hat on at FantasyScore, even if he's hitting second in the lineup and facing a pitcher who has allowed at least five earned runs in his last three outings.
