Philadelphia Phillies news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:44:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This was easily the worst start of Nola's ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) brief major league career but these growing pains can be expected for a pitcher who only had eight major league starts under his belt entering Wednesday's outing. He will make his next start against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, Sept. 8.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:13:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is likely to miss at least a handful of games, if not more. Avoid him in FantasyScore, and consider Darnell Sweeney ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) if you're looking for a salary saver.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 18:12:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Cody Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) entered the game and played left field, with Darnell Sweeney ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) shifting over from left to right.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 17:39:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's becoming increasingly unlikely that Franco ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) will play again this season, although fantasy owners should continue to stash him if they can, in the event that his condition suddenly improves. Andres Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will continue to receive most of the playing time at the hot corner for Philadelphia.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 11:30:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sweeney ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is a switch-hitting prospect that came over from the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Chase Utley swap last month, and he's a promising youngster that should attract attention in keeper leagues. However, going up against a well-rested Harvey tonight isn't a great time to use him as a sleeper on FantasyScore.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:47:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has notable power for daily owners, and he does have a slash line of .365/.430/.581 with an OPS of 1.011 against left-handers in 74 at-bats this season. He's a sleeper pick on FantasyScore tonight worth considering if you need to save money elsewhere.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:36:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sweeney ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has only three hits in 12 at-bats for the Phils since being called up, but two of those knocks were home runs. Still, he's a low-end FantasyScore commodity until we see more, even hitting in a great daily spot in the lineup tonight.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:15:46 -0700
Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur will start in right field against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Monday, Aug. 31, and is batting fifth in the lineup. OF Cody Asche is not in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting .298 with three home runs and nine RBI this month and could be a cheaper starting option on FantasyScore.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 15:54:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been a dominant player for a Rule 5 selection, and he has turned into a reliable hitter for the Phillies. It's been a decent season, and that price makes Herrera a decent FantasyScore option.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:47:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has cooled off considerably recently. He is just 3-for-25 over the last seven days and should be avoided in FantasyScore tonight.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:39:00 -0700
Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown will bat sixth and play right field against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Saturday, Aug. 29. OF Aaron Altherr, who played right field Friday, Aug. 28, will bat third and play left field Saturday, with OF Cody Asche getting the day off.
Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is batting only .175 with three home runs and 11 RBIs this month, so he should be ignored for fantasy purposes. Altherr ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 7-for-27 this season, with all of his hits having gone for extra bases (four doubles, one triple and two home runs). He could be worth a flier in FantasyScore tonight.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:37:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sweeney ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 2-for-10 with a solo home run in his brief major league career. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him until he has more of a track record to go on.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:37:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting .360 with six home runs and 16 RBIs during the month of August. He makes an excellent source of moderate cap relief in FantasyScore.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:28:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Nola ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) went 4-0 in six starts during the month of August and has won his last five decisions. He will make his next start against the New York Mets Wednesday, Sept. 2, at Citi Field.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:17:42 -0700
San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Travis Jankowski is playing right field and batting ninth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been on a tear since the All-Star break, and don't forget he finished 2014 strong, too. Make sure to avoid him in all fantasy formats Friday, though, as he is dealing with a sore shoulder. Expect him back sooner than later. FantasyScore players have no reason to target Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap), either.
