Phillies | Cesar Hernandez might be everyday 2B

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 18:52:07 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez has done such an admirable job filling in for 2B Chase Utley (ankle) that he could be the everyday second baseman even when Utley returns. "I would like to think Cesar has proven that he deserves a chance to be the everyday second baseman," manager Pete Mackanin said Tuesday, June 30. "That remains to be seen. I don't know. I don't want to get ahead of myself. Let's just wait to see when Chase is healthy and how he feels and we'll go from there."

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is hitting .436 (17-for-39) with four doubles, seven RBIs and a 1.016 OPS overh is past 10 games, while Utley posted a .179 average with a .532 OPS in 249 plate appearances before his injury. Hernandez ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) is a stud in FantasyScore at this price level while he is running hot.

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:39:54 -0700

Fantasy Tip: With Utley on the mend, Cesar Hernandez is likely to take over regular duties at second base. Hernandez ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) might be a decent short-term add in FantasyScore since he'll see regular at-bats.

Phillies | Chase Utley resting

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:38:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Tuesday, June 23. 2B Cesar Hernandez is once again starting at the keystone and hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is a pesky light-hitting sleeper option at second base on FantasyScore. He's hitting .343 (12-for-35) against southpaws this year, too, making him at least worth a look for some cap relief. Sabathia is allowing a slash line of .335/.367/.558 to right-handers, and 14 of the 15 homers he's allowed this year have come against righties.

Phillies | Chase Utley as the DH Monday

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:09:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth in the order against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Monday, June 22. 2B Cesar Hernandez is playing second base and hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has struggled all season (.182/.258/.280) with four home runs and 25 RBI, and he shouldn't be on your FantasyScore radar, especially while facing Pineda, who has been one of the Yankees' most consistent starters in 2015.

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 06:34:02 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) can't be used on FantasyScore with the funk he is in right now.

Phillies | Chase Utley out Sunday

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 08:39:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, June 21, against the St. Louis Cardinals. 2B Cesar Hernandez will start at second base and hit second in the order against RHP Michael Wacha.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) went 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in his most recent start, representing one his two multi-hit games in his last three starts. Hernandez is a switch-hitter who prefers left-handed pitching, and he should be avoided against Wacha.

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 11:40:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is out of the lineup Friday, June 19, in favor of 2B Cesar Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Utley is sitting against left-hander Tyler Lyons. Lyons has been spotty, but Hernandez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and his .160 June average isn't worth using on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Chase Utley to start at 1B

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 13:22:11 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley will be the starting first baseman against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Tuesday, June 16, and is batting fifth in the lineup. 2B Cesar Hernandez will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Utley (3,300, 6.6% of cap) has been on a lengthy cold streak with two hits in his last 10 games. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid using Utley until he is more productive at the plate. Hernandez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has four hits in his last three games but is still hitting .190 this month and should not be a starting option.

Phillies | Chase Utley will be DH

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 12:58:21 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley will serve as the designated hitter against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Monday, June 15, and is batting sixth in the lineup. 2B Cesar Hernandez will start at second base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is batting only .167 against left-handed pitchers this season, which is probably why he was moved down in the lineup. Utley may not be a great option on FantasyScore because of his struggles. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .218 in limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option.

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 12:40:46 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is returning to the lineup Saturday, June 13, batting third against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has struggled all season long and is facing Cole, who is 9-2 with a 1.73 earned run average so far this year. Utley is a risky play on FantasyScore today, as he is most days.
