Phillies | Adam Morgan starting vs. Cleveland

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 13:13:52 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan was officially recalled to start against the Cleveland Indians Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan struck out just 49 batters through 84 1/3 innings over 15 starts last year with a 4.48 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. He has limited fantasy appeal and is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats Friday. There could be value in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues if he sticks in the rotation, but for now, take a wait-and-see approach with Morgan.

Phillies | Aaron Nola delivers sparkling outing

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 17:00:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola worked seven excellent scoreless innings Thursday, April 28, opposite the Washington Nationals. He surrendered just two hits, one walk and struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: Impressively, the 22-year-old right-hander has gone seven innings in all but one of his five starts this season, while allowing one run or less in three of those outings. And remember, this is a guy that was drafted only two years ago. Clearly, he has a very high ceiling, and it appears Nola is harnessing his potential faster than most people anticipated. He merits a spot on fantasy rosters in just about all leagues with how solid he's been.

Phillies | Jeremy Hellickson impressive Wednesday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 19:10:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jeremy Hellickson (2-1) allowed two hits and three walks over seven scoreless innings in a victory over the Washington Nationals Wednesday, April 27, with eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: This marked the first time in five starts this year where Hellickson was able to pitch into the seventh inning. See if he can put together a few more decent starts in a row before considering him as a viable pitching option in daily fantasy games.

Phillies | Charlie Morton's season over

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 09:25:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Charlie Morton (hamstring) needs surgery to repair his left hamstring, and he'll miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: It's another unfortunate twist for Morton after a really good start to the season. Adam Morgan has taken his rotation spot, but he's only NL-only depth at this point.

Phillies | Gregor Blanco has three-hit game

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:47:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Gregor Blanco went 3-for-4 with a double, two-run home run and two runs scored with a walk Tuesday, April 26, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is hitting .346 this season, but it's mostly station-to-station work and the power is an anomaly. He is still a solid fantasy option in NL-only formats and he is a salary saver in DFS play.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera reaches base three times

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:47:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a pair of walks Tuesday, April 26, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera has hit safely in seven straight games, going 9-for-24 (.375). He is a solid NL-only fantasy option and a steam play in DFS formats.

Phillies | Maikel Franco fights off injury

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:46:46 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (leg) was visited by a trainer in the seventh inning after stumbling while running the bases Tuesday, April 26, against the Washington Nationals. He was able to stay in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Franco finished 1-for-5 with a double and an RBI. It appears safe to keep him in the active fantasy lineup.

Phillies | Bad news for Charlie Morton

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 17:20:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Charlie Morton (hamstring) has a strained left hamstring, and although the Phillies didn't reveal the results of his examination Monday, April 25, manager Pete Mackanin said the news wasn't good, and Morton will be out longer than expected. SP Adam Morgan will be called up to start against the Cleveland Indians Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Morton has a lengthy injury history, and with him unlikely to return soon, he can probably be dropped from all rosters in mixed leagues. Morgan doesn't throw hard and shouldn't move the needle much at all outside of the deepest NL-only leagues as a matchup play if he sticks in the rotation.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis sitting Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 12:02:21 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26. SS Andres Blanco is starting at the 6 and batting second against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is a light-hitting utility infielder that should be avoided against Scherzer in daily formats Tuesday, despite hitting in a favorable lineup spot.

Phillies | Adam Morgan to start Friday for Phils

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:52:23 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan will come up from the minor leagues with Class AAA Lehigh Valley to make the start Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan has the first crack at replacing Charlie Morton in the rotation. Morgan went 5-7 with a 4.48 ERA and just 5.2 strikeouts per nine innings in 15 starts for the Phils last year. He doesn't have much velocity on his pitches and gives up plenty of fly balls. There's not much to like here.

Phillies | Charlie Morton to the DL

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 16:37:51 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Charlie Morton (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 24, with a strained left hamstring, and he will have an MRI Monday, April 25, to determine how long he will be out. General manager Matt Klentak said a decision will be made later in the week on who will replace Morton in the rotation, but he mentioned SP Adam Morgan as a candidate.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan has been pitching well in the minors, and he could be worth a speculative grab in NL-only formats.

Phillies | Jerad Eickhoff roughed up by Brew Crew

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 15:37:35 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff endured his worst outing by far despite recording seven strikeouts on Sunday, April 24, surrendering a season-high seven runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: A six-run sixth inning provided most of the damage against Eickhoff, who hadn't yielded more than two earned runs in any of his first three turns. This outing is a bitter pill to swallow for his owners, but the 25-year-old has built up enough of a track record to trust in a home start against the Cleveland Indians next weekend.

Phillies | David Lough sitting out

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 09:45:49 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF David Lough is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta Sunday, April 24. 2B Emmanuel Burriss will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Burriss has only one hit in 15 at-bats this season and is not a strong starting candidate in any league.

Phillies | Maikel Franco hits fifth bomb

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 05:17:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI during the Phillies' 10-6 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Franco is picking up where he left off this spring and sits with five home runs, 12 RBI and a .299/.338/.552 slash line to start the season. Expect the budding star to live up to his preseason hype this year with a breakout campaign. Keep him in mind in daily contests against favorable opponents, too.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera stuffs his stat line

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 05:10:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera went 3-for-4 with four runs, a home run, two RBI, a stolen base and two walks during the Phillies' 10-6 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: After a sneaky productive 2015 showing with 64 runs, eight home runs, 41 RBI, 16 stolen bases and a .291/.344/.418 slash line over 495 at-bats, Herrera's strong start this year is encouraging. He is up to 10 runs, two home runs, eight RBI and four stolen bases with a .283/.442/.433 line this year, and Herrera can help in deep mixed leagues. Scoop him up if you need an outfielder.
