Phillies | Grady Sizemore starting in right field

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:24:54 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Grady Sizemore is batting sixth and starting in right field against the Washington Nationals Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) offers little upside in all fantasy formats facing Max Scherzer Friday. For the season, Sizemore's four runs, six RBI and .601 OPS leave a lot to be desired, and his ownership should be limited to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Phillies | Grady Sizemore's role shrinking?

Thu, 21 May 2015 18:26:51 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Grady Sizemore was out of the starting lineup for the second game in a row Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) was a fringe option at best at FantasyScore when he was playing regularly, and he probably isn't worth using at all if he is going to be in and out of the lineup sporadically.

Phillies | Ryan Howard crushing at Coors Field

Thu, 21 May 2015 18:16:18 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 7-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies Thursday, May 21, and he is hitting .395 in his last nine games at Coors Field.

Fantasy Tip: Although Howard ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) may have been helped by Colorado's hitter friendly park, he has been solid in May in general. He is hitting .325 with five home runs, and he has nice upside for the price at FantasyScore thanks to his power.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz resting during day game

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:23:57 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. C Cameron Rupp is behind the dish and is hitting eighth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .171 (7-for-41) with one RBI on the season. You should look elsewhere for your FantasyScore lineups, even at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Phillies | No Ben Revere in lineup

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:17:45 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. OF Darin Ruf is starting in left field and hitting third in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is an intriguing under-the-radar FantasyScore candidate today. He's hitting barely over .200 on the season, but he is 7-for-22 (.318) with two of his three home runs off lefties. De La Rosa has been much better in his career at hitter-friendly Coors Field, oddly enough, but he's also wildly inconsistent. Ruf could be a sneaky sleeper pick.

Phillies | Ryan Howard having solid May

Thu, 21 May 2015 00:49:21 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is hitting .328 (21-for-64) in May with four home runs and 10 RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) looks the best he has in four years, ever since that fateful Achilles tear in the 2011 National League Championship Series. At this lower price, he is definitely worth putting in your lineup.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur starting in RF

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:04:58 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in right field and hitting sixth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Wednesday, May 20. OF Grady Sizemore will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting just .225 (20-for-89) with three home runs and 11 RBI, and he's been even worse against righties (.213/.269/.426). Not even the fact that he's taking hacks at hitter-friendly Coors Field should make you want to play him at FantasyScore right now.

Phillies | Chad Billingsley timeline

Mon, 18 May 2015 14:55:19 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Chad Billingsley (shoulder) is expected to miss four to six weeks with a right shoulder strain. He is currently on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Billingsley can be ignored in all fantasy formats until he returns and proves his health. He isn't worth stashing outside of NL-only formats, and even there, he is nothing more than a desperation play. After all, he has only pitched 28 innings since 2012.

Phillies | Severino Gonzalez starting Wednesday

Mon, 18 May 2015 14:50:02 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Severino Gonzalez is starting against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Starting in Coors Field isn't an ideal pitching environment, to say the least. Plus, Gonzalez has just 7 2/3 innings of experience at the highest level, including his debut start Tuesday, April 28, where he lasted just 2 2/3 innings and allowed 10 hits and seven earned runs. Start Gonzalez in all fantasy formats at your own risk.

Phillies | Maikel Franco goes deep

Sun, 17 May 2015 20:23:33 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco hit his first major league home run in a 6-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: After going hitless in his season debut, Franco has gone 3-for-8 with two RBIs and three runs scored in his last two games. He is worth picking up in deeper leagues, but don't expect any type of consistency from the 22-year-old.

Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting

Sun, 17 May 2015 08:45:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard isn't in the lineup Sunday, May 17, against the Arizona Diamondbacks and RHP Josh Collmenter. 1B Darin Ruf will start at first and bat cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has hit just .132 off righties this season, in 57 plate appearances. FantasyScore owners need to ignore Ruf completely.

Phillies | Chase Utley out Sunday

Sun, 17 May 2015 08:41:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 2B Andres Blanco will start at second base and hit second in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a switch-hitter, but he is batting just .250 against RHPs this season, compared to .364 against lefties. Even with a great spot in the lineup, Blanco doesn't warrant much consideration.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 17 May 2015 08:29:11 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is out of the starting lineup Sunday, May 17, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 2B Cesar Hernandez will start at short and bat sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) made three straight starts before serving as a pinch hitter in the last two games. Hernandez is just 3-for-his-last-13, and FantasyScore owners need to look elsewhere.

Phillies | Jerome Williams gets the win

Sun, 17 May 2015 06:38:08 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerome Williams gave up seven hits and two earned runs Saturday, May 16, in a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Williams struck out four.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has walked just two batters over his last three starts, and he has struck out at least four hitters in four of his eight starts this season. Williams can be a sneaky choice as a second pitcher on FantasyScore in ideal matchups.

Phillies | Ben Revere out Saturday

Sat, 16 May 2015 13:41:06 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is out of the lineup Saturday, May 16, in place of OF Grady Sizemore.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of your cap) is hitting just .234-0-6 and isn't worth consideration on FantasyScore.
