Phillies | Cesar Hernandez starting

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 09:22:59 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Cesar Hernandez is starting at second base against the Washington Nationals Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 4-for-16 at the plate this season but has not recorded any extra base hits. Owners on FantasyScore likely will be able to find better options to use.

Phillies | Chase Utley to sit out

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 09:13:24 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is receiving a day off after playing in each of the last six games. Cesar Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will take Utley's place in the lineup but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz sitting out

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 09:19:10 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 18. C Cameron Rupp is in the starting lineup for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is likely receiving a day off after playing Friday night. Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 2-for-11 at the plate this season and is probably not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Cole Hamels serves up another homer

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 17:29:39 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels gave up his seventh home run of the season Thursday, April 16, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) has gotten off to a frustrating start for owners who paid the high price on draft day or continue to pay up on FantasyScore. This season it took just 65 batters faced to hit seven home runs off of Hamels after it took 359 batters to hit seven homers last season. It's an unlucky start for Hamels, but owners will need to show patience in the likely ace of their fantasy staff.

Phillies | Ryan Howard dropped in lineup

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 12:46:44 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard has been dropped to seventh in the batting order against the Washington Nationals Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is off to a .148 (4-for-27) start to the 2015 season with no home runs and just one RBI. During a cold start to the year, and now that he's been dropped in the order, we recommend avoiding Howard at FantasyScore for the time being.

Phillies | Ryan Howard may be in platoon

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 09:23:48 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard has sat out twice in nine games against left-handed pitchers. 1B Darin Ruf has been in against the lefties, but he is just 1-for-17 (.059) on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of your cap) is hitting just .148 with no homers in 27 at-bats. He's at a huge discount if he finds his power stroke. Howard has started slowly the last three years with a .266-8-30 line in 188 April at-bats. He's a matchup play on FantasyScore, and Ruf should be avoided right now.

Phillies | Chad Billingsley making progress

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:35:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Chad Billingsley (elbow) worked five scoreless innings Wednesday, April 15, for Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a minor-league rehab outing. He allowed just two hits. "Progressing well," manager Ryne Sandberg.

Fantasy Tip: The former Dodgers hurler Billingsley is worth keeping an eye on, as he could make his way to Philadelphia and make a difference for the Phillies, who have some shaky arms in their rotation after Cole Hamels.

Phillies | Dom Brown close to moving rehab

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:34:58 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown (Achilles') is getting close to moving his minor-league rehab assignment from Class A Advanced Clearwater to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. "I'm not sure if it's today or tomorrow. It could be that soon," manager Ryne Sandberg said Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Brown will move from the Threshers to the IronPigs to get some upper-level at-bats. Itís uncertain how far he is from a return to Philly, but FantasyScore owners should bother with him until he can officially return to the lineup and prove his health in a full game or two.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz resting Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:14:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15. C Cameron Rupp is starting behind the plate and hitting seventh in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jon Niese.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't in the big leagues for his bat, and he should be ignored by FantasyScore gamers Wednesday night.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis not playing

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:06:02 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15. 2B Cesar Hernandez is starting at shortstop and hitting second in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jon Niese.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting backup infield option for the Phils, and he should be ignored at FantasyScore tonight.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur batting fourth

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 12:47:09 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is batting fourth in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has played pretty well early in the season and hit his first home run of the season in his last game. Owners on FantasyScore could consider Francoeur as an option if they are looking to save some money.

Phillies | Darin Ruf starting at 1B

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 12:43:08 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Darin Ruf is starting at first base against the New York Mets Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has not had much success at the play so far this season with only one hit in 14 at-bats. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting out

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 12:42:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is receiving the day off since the team is facing a left-handed starter. Darin Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will be starting at first base but may not be a great option on FantasyScore since he has only one hit in 14 at-bats this season.

Phillies | Aaron Harang to throw Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 04:30:49 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang will start Monday, April 13, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Harang ($3,000, 6% of cap) has some success against the Mets, with a 6-5 record and a 4.28 ERA in 13 career starts. He had a solid outing against the Boston Red Sox with 6 1/3 scoreless innings last week. Harang is a decent pickup at this salary.

Phillies | Cole Hamels solid against Nats

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 13:29:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels has a 2.59 ERA in 33 career starts against the Washington Nationals, following a seven-inning start Saturday, April 11, where he allowed one run.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) is off to a strong start, but keep this in mind when he faces the Nationals. Looks like Hamels has a mastery of Washington, give or take one bad outing. Hamels is a solid pitcher in all formats.
