Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 11:39:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the lineup Wednesday, July 23. 1B/OF Darin Ruf if hitting seventh and playing first base.

Fantasy Tip: The Phils are facing San Francisco Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner, so the newly recalled Ruf is getting platoon duty. He's worth a grab in NL-only and some deep mixed games.

Phillies | John Mayberry Jr. to DL

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 13:53:33 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF John Mayberry Jr. (wrist) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, July 22, with left wrist inflammation. In a corresponding move, 1B/OF Darin Ruf was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf is worth a flier in NL-only formats. He hit 14 home runs in 73 games last season, and he has a nice power pedigree at the minor league level.

Phillies | A.J. Burnett wants to return to Pittsburgh

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 09:50:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett prefers the Pittsburgh Pirates as his next team, and Pittsburgh players are lobbying for his return. The player option on his deal may wind up being a road block to a trade, though.

Fantasy Tip: Pittsburgh's pitchers typically are more successful than most clubs', and they helped turn around Burnett's career in 2012. A reunion would be a boon for Burnett's fantasy worth.

Phillies | Cliff Lee's return spoiled

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 20:53:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cliff Lee (elbow) allowed six runs and 12 hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss Monday, July 21, against the San Francisco Giants. He had been 5-0 with a 0.88 ERA in six career games against the Giants previous to Monday's outing. If he show's he is healthy and pitches effectively, he is a prime candidate for a trade before the July 31 non-waiver deadline.

Fantasy Tip: A move to a contender could rejuvenate Lee and his fantasy value, but he needs to stay healthy and pitch well first.
