Philadelphia Phillies news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 18 Apr 2015 09:19:10 -0700
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 12:47:09 -0700
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.
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 12:43:08 -0700
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.
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 12:42:00 -0700
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.
Mon, 13 Apr 2015 04:30:49 -0700
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.
Sun, 12 Apr 2015 13:29:32 -0700
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.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Cody Asche is out of the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Friday, April 10. SS Andres Blanco is starting at the hot corner and hitting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be avoided for all daily lineups against Gonzalez Friday night.
Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:34:35 -0700
Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Friday, April 10. C Cameron Rupp is starting behind the plate and hitting seventh in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) needs to be avoided at FantasyScore against Gonzalez. Gonzalez ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is a strong play against the offensively-challenged Phillies, especially without Ruiz and Ryan Howard Friday.
