Phillies | Cody Asche remains out

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 12:48:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Cody Asche is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. OF Odubel Herrera draws into the lineup, and he is playing center field and batting fifth against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller Thursday. OF Jeff Francoeur is also not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: The Phillies outfield is beginning look like a bit of a daily shuffle with no one starting each of the past four games. Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap), Herrera ($3,100, 6.2% of cap), Francoeur ($2,800, 5.6% of cap), Domonic Brown ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Ben Revere ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) are all currently competing for playing time, but it wouldn't be shocking to see one of them traded and open up more at-bats. Against Miller ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) Thursday, none of the Philadelphia outfielders are worth a look at FantasyScore, though, and they're all low-end fantasy outfield options.

Phillies | No Cody Asche vs. Jay Birds

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:28:37 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Cody Asche is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. OF Domonic Brown is playing right field and batting sixth, and OF Jeff Francoeur is playing left field and batting fifth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Asche ($2,500,5.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Brown ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Francoeur ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) draw knuckleballer Dickey ($5,000, 10.0% of cap), which is a hit-or-miss matchup, so they should be viewed as high-risk, high-reward fliers for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Phillies | Domonic Brown sitting out

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:50:45 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Felix Doubront Tuesday, July 28. OF Jeff Francoeur will start in right field and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Francoeur ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting .278 with four home runs and 10 RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur batting fourth vs. Rays

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 12:33:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is playing right field and batting fourth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Monday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has really stuggled against southpaws this season with a .221/.247/.351 slash line through 81 plate appearances. There is upside hitting in a prime spot in the lineup, but FantasyScore players should view Francoeur as nothing more than a low-priced flier for contests Monday.

Pirates | Pittsburgh interested in Jeff Francoeur

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 05:08:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is of trade interest to the Pittsburgh Pirates, and Pittsburgh has spoken to Philadelphia about acquiring the outfielder.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) boasts an underwhelming .246 batting average and .278 on-base percentage, and he isn't an option outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. A move to the Pirates would likely hurt his fantasy stock, as Francoeur would enter a crowded outfield with Andrew McCutchen ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) and Starling Marte ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) locked into everyday playing time and Gregory Polanco ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) unlikely to be relegated to a bench role.

Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting vs. Giants

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 16:21:58 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is out of the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 10. OF Darin Ruf is starting at first base and hitting fifth, while OF Jeff Francoeur is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) are both weak options against Country Strong in a pitching-friendly environment. Bumgarner has been solid at home this year (2.49 ERA, 1.06 WHIP in nine starts).

Phillies | Domonic Brown out again

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 06:59:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown is out of the starting lineup for the second day in a row Sunday, July 28, against the Washington Nationals and RHP Stephen Strasburg. OF Jeff Francoeur will start in right field and hit fifth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has just one hit in his last 15 plate appearances, and he should be left alone on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Domonic Brown not in the lineup

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 09:25:33 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Saturday, June 27. OF Jeff Francoeur will start in right field and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: The team is facing a left-handed pitcher, which probably is why Brown is not in the lineup. Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has recorded only one hit in his last six games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

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 | Jeff Francoeur starting vs. St. Louis

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 12:11:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in left field and batting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tyler Lyons Friday, June 19. OF Cody Asche is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has had just 39 at-bats in June, but he sports a .308 batting average with three doubles, a home run and eight RBI. He also has the handedness advantage against Lyons. View Francoeur as a potential source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Friday.
