Phillies | Want several prospects in exchange for Cole Hamels

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 10:19:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly looking for four or five prospects in exchange for SP Cole Hamels. Last week, Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe wrote that the Phillies wanted three top prospects in return but a team official said that number was too conservative. It appears unlikely that any team is willing to meet that demand.

Phillies | Jonathan Papelbon may be difficult to move

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 10:12:28 -0700

The Philadelphia Phillies may find it difficult to move CL Jonathan Papelbon because of a vesting option for the 2016 season which kicks in if he finishes 100 combined games in 2014 and 2015 or if he finishes 55 games during the 2015 season. Papelbon is owed $13 million next year.

Phillies | Ryan Howard benched again

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:36:35 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard was on the bench for a third consecutive day Friday, July 25, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. His replacement, 1B/OF Darin Ruf, went 1-for-2 with a double, walk, run scored and RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Philly was facing another left-handed starter, and Howard is hitting just .209 (19-for-91) with 40 strikeouts and a .275 on-base percentage vs. LHP. If he sits Saturday against Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter, a righty, then fantasy owners should really be concerned.

Phillies | Kyle Kendrick has topped every NL team

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:36:12 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Kyle Kendrick allowed three runs and six hits over 5 2/3 innings Friday, July 25, in a win against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was his first win in eight career starts against the Diamondbacks, and he now has a victory against every team in the National League.

Phillies | Grady Sizemore reaches milestone

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:34:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Grady Sizemore had a three-hit night, including his 1,000th career hit, Friday, July 25, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. One of his hits went for a double, and he also drove in a run.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore's 1000th hit should have come years ago in Cleveland, but years of recovery after microfracture surgery delayed the milestone. He is best used as a No. 4 or 5 fantasy outfielder in NL-only leagues at this point.

Phillies | Ryan Howard endorsed by GM

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:38:18 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard will be the team's first baseman in 2015, according to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.

Fantasy Tip: Howard's 2015 fantasy value doesn't look enticing, outside a final-round flier in mixed leagues.

Phillies | Grady Sizemore back in lead off spot

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 12:21:43 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Grady Sizemore is batting leadoff Friday, July 25, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore should be owned in all NL-only formats. Ryne Sandberg appears committed to giving Sizemore enough playing time to make him an option in deep mixed leagues.

Phillies | No Ryan Howard again

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:22:39 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the lineup Friday, July 25, against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Wade Miley, a left-hander. 1B Darin Ruf is playing first base and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: So continues the platoon saga that'll give Ruf more deep-mixed value and makes Howard expendable in many formats.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:35:10 -0700

Phillies | Ryan Howard won't be released

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 08:25:19 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not a candidate to be released, according to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., but that a straight platoon arrangement is possible. Amaro anticipates Howard being with the team next year at spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Howard, however, will lose playing time to Darin Ruf, which strips away much of his already tenuous mixed-league value. Howard is the subject of trade talks, so maybe a better situation will help him recover.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 07:29:28 -0700

Phillies | Trying to trade Ryan Howard

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 15:19:35 -0700

The Philadelphia Phillies are working hard to trade 1B Ryan Howard and would be willing to swallow much or most of the remaining $70 million they owe him, according to rival executives.

Fantasy Tip: Howard's relationship with Philly management is becoming toxic, and a change of scenery could be a positive. Still, you know what you're getting with Howard: low BA, decent power and RBI potential. He could be much more useful in an AL environment.
