Phillies | Jonathan Papelbon wants trade

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 08:50:23 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon is once again asking for a trade to a contending team as the trade deadline nears. "Yeah, that would be a pretty valid answer. ... I don't make these decisions. The front office knows where my heart is and where my mind is. And that's to be with a contending ball club. The ball is in their court, so to speak," Papelbon said. He currently has 14 saves and a 1.65 ERA with 34 strikeouts for the Phillies. Papelbon needs to appear in 20 more games this year to activate his player option for 2016 that's worth $13 million. He has a limited no-trade clause that will allow him to block a deal to 17 teams.

Fantasy Tip: Papelbon is expected to be dealt, and the Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays seem like the likeliest destinations. A move out of Philly can do nothing but raise his fantasy value while pitching for a contender. This is the time to buy low on Papelbon. Ken Giles is the closer in waiting in Philly if Paps is dealt.

Phillies | Sean O'Sullivan sent down

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 06:36:17 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Sean O'Sullivan was outrighted to Class AAA Lehigh Valley Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: O'Sullivan had a rough rotation stint with a 6.08 ERA, and it's hard to see him regaining his spot after the All-Star break. If he was still on your NL-only team, cut him loose.

Phillies | Ben Revere returns to the lineup

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 15:50:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere (hamstring) is leading off against Los Angeles Dodgers RP Yimi Garcia Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Revere ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) only missed a game with the injury, and he is riding an extended hot streak. Over his past 28 games, Revere has a .364/.393/.477 slash line with 20 runs and nine stolen bases. He should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward start for FantasyScore contests Monday.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez on a roll

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 08:03:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is hitting .433 and has swiped five bases in the last seven days.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is a basement flyer worth the dice roll on FantasyScore right now.

Phillies | Ben Revere could return Monday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 18:22:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere (hamstring) said his right hamstring injury is minor, and he could be back in the lineup Monday, July 6, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Revere ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been red hot the last month, but with speed being a big part of his game, it is wise to avoid him at FantasyScore until it is clear the hamstring injury isn't stopping him from stealing bases.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz hitting fifth

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 07:26:24 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz will start behind the plate and hit fifth in the order Sunday, July 5, against the Atlanta Braves and RHP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has gone 1-for-20 over his last five starts, and he can be ignored on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Domonic Brown dropped to eighth

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 07:21:34 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown will hit eighth in the order Sunday, July 5, against the Atlanta Braves and RHP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has just one multi-hit game since June 16, and he hasn't hit anything other than a single since June 26. FantasyScore owners can easily find options with more upside.

Phillies | Ben Revere out Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 07:20:03 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is out of the lineup Sunday, July 5, against the Atlanta Braves. OF Odubel Herrera will start in center field and hit out of the leadoff spot against RHP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting .262 against right-handed pitchers, and he has hit all three of his home runs against righties. Herrera can be used in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Ryan Howard out Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:21:34 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is out of the lineup Saturday, July 4, against a left-hander. SS Andres Blanco is hitting second in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) .265-2-9 isn't in there for his offense, and he shouldn't be used on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Adam Morgan tosses quality start

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 19:38:22 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan (1-1) allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in a loss to the Atlanta Braves Friday, July 3. He walked two and struck out five.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has pitched well in both of his major league starts but faces a difficult task in his next outing Wednesday, July 8, when he is scheduled to face Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Avoid using him in FantasyScore next week.

Phillies | Cody Asche playing well

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 20:29:15 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Cody Asche went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk in an 8-7 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, July 2, and he has raised his average from .229 to .254 over the last 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games and has five multi-hit games over the same span. He doesn't have a lot of upside, but for the price, he could make a decent source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.

Phillies | No Carlos Ruiz Thursday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:24:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. C Cameron Rupp is starting and hitting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should never excite FantasyScore users very much as a sleeper catching option, even against the Brew Crew and Garza.

Phillies | Ben Revere sitting out Thursday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:07:01 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. OF Odubel Herrera is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is a low-end flyer as a sleeper on FantasyScore as he draws the start today. Herrera is only hitting .250 (45-for-180) against right-handers this year but does have both of his home runs against them.

Phillies | Aaron Harang to DL

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 10:29:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with plantar fasciitis in his left foot Thursday, July 2. SP Chad Billingsley (shoulder) was activated from the DL in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Harang ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) had fallen on hard times of late, losing eight straight and allowing 59 hits and 36 earned runs in 46 2/3 innings over that time frame. He was due for serious regression after a nice first month and a half of the season. Only hang onto him in the deepest of NL-only leagues.

Phillies | Maikel Franco starts July with a bang

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 19:27:42 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco went 3-for-4 with three doubles, a walk and a run scored in a 9-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) had eight home runs and 24 RBI in June, and he picked right up where he left off. The 22-year-old probably can't keep up his current pace, but in the meantime, he is worth a look at FantasyScore whenever he draws a decent matchup.
