Position Breakdown
1B - 16
News
Joseph is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.

Joseph has yet to find his groove at the plate, posting just two multi-hit games in his first 16 appearances. He'll be replaced by Brock Stassi on Sunday, but should be back on the lineup card for Tuesday's matchup with the Marlins.

Jeanmar Gomez, #46
Year-to-date Stats

News
Gomez picked up a win Saturday in an inning of work in a 4-3 win over the Braves.

Gomez allowed an unearned run in the top of the 10th inning, but the Phillies' offense scored two runs in the bottom of the 10th to give him the win. Gomez lost his closing job earlier this month and is unlikely to get it back again. Manager Pete Mackanin turned to Edubray Ramos instead of Gomez to close out Saturday's game with Hector Neris and Joaquin Benoit unavailable. It is an indication of just how far Gomez has fallen in the bullpen hierarchy.

Odubel Herrera, #37

Position Breakdown
OF - 17
News
Herrera went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Sunday's win over Atlanta.

It's been a solid start to 2017 for the 25-year-old outfielder, and he's well on his way to turning in another strong campaign that moves the needle across all rotisserie categories. While his upside is likely capped, it's also rare to find five-category contributors like Herrera, and he provides a nice fantasy floor hitting in the heart of the Philadelphia lineup.

News
Rupp is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.

Rupp has settled into a routine of starting two-to-three consecutive games before receiving a scheduled day of rest. After starting the team's past two contests, Rupp will head to the bench Sunday in favor of backup catcher Andrew Knapp.

News
Hellickson (3-0) allowed two runs on three hits while striking out five across seven innings to earn the win Friday against the Braves.

Hellickson gave up single runs in the fourth and sixth innings while the Phillies bats provided enough support to give him his third win of the season. Although the sample size is small, he's yet to allow more than two runs in any of his four starts while posting a 1.88 ERA to go along with a 0.71 WHIP, and he's certainly helping many fantasy teams get off to a similarly strong start. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Marlins.

Nick Pivetta
No Stats Available
News
Pivetta is expected to be called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

The Phillies aren't expected to announce the roster move until Wednesday, but it appears Pivetta will enter the rotation in place of Aaron Nola (back), who hit the disabled list Monday and will miss at least one turn in the rotation. While the 24-year-old isn't a major prospect in the organization, he fared well during his five-start sample at Triple-A to close out 2016 and has been even more dominant to open 2017. In his three starts with Lehigh Valley, Pivetta has given up three runs (two earned) over 19 innings while striking out 24 batters. Assuming Nola's injury proves to be a short-term concern, Pivetta may not stick with the Phillies for long, but could be worth a flyer in NL-only leagues.

Zach Eflin, #56
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
3563.15.541731
 
News
Eflin allowed one run on three hits over seven innings Sunday in a 5-2 win over the Braves. He struck out three and did not walk a batter.

Eflin didn't strike many batters out, but the Braves were not able to make solid contact on his pitches. He generated six groundouts to first base and six shallow pop-ups to the outfield. The young righty has allowed just three runs in his first two starts this season. He'll try to keep rolling against the Dodgers in his next start.

Andrew Knapp
No Stats Available
News
Knapp went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in a 6-4 win over the Mets on Thursday.

Knapp, who got his one hit off Noah Syndergaard, was making just his fourth start of the season. He will continue to see one or two starts per week for now, but if Cameron Rupp's struggles continue into next month we could see Knapp start to carve out additional playing time.

Pat Neshek, #37
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERASVK
2247.03.06043
 
News
Neshek was reinstated from the paternity list Friday.

It was a brief two days away for Neshek, but he'll be back in the bullpen as the Phillies open a weekend series against the Braves. The veteran right-hander is off to a great start this season, allowing no runs over six appearances, so he should be in line for high-leverage opportunities going forward. Ben Lively was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move.

Joaquin Benoit, #53
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERASVK
3148.02.81152
 
News
Manager Pete Mackanin said after Friday's game that he is not naming Hector Neris his closer and reiterated that he feels comfortable with both Neris and Benoit in the ninth inning, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Benoit was used in a setup role Friday in front of Hector Neris for a second straight night. Mackanin may be saying both pitchers can close, but his actions indicate Neris, who earned his second save Friday, will get the bulk of the save chances if he continues to convert.

Injuries
Back - Expected to be out until at least May 1 (Updated - 4/24/17)
News
Nola was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

The move comes after Nola struggled (but still picked up the win) against the Mets, seeing his fastball velocity dip to 90 mph from his normal 92 mph clip. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, but the move is retroactive to April 21, making Nola eligible for activation on May 1 against the Cubs should he be ready. The Phillies haven't hinted at a possible fill in for Nola while he is sidelined, but it appears Nick Pivetta could start in his place.

News
Neris allowed one run on three hits while striking out one over one inning to earn his second save Friday against the Braves.

Neris had a two-run cushion the work with, and served up a gopher ball to lead off the inning, but was still able to nail down the victory for the Phillies. Although he hasn't been named as the team's closer, he's now notched saves in back-to-back contests, and for now he's a player who must be rostered based on the possibility he earns the full-time ninth-inning role.

News
Saunders is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.

Saunders was scratched from the lineup with an illness Thursday but was able to return to action Friday. It appears that Sunday is simply a day of rest for the 30-year-old. Aaron Altherr is starting in right field.

Injuries
Oblique - Expected to be out until at least May 2 (Updated - 4/22/17)
News
Kendrick has been diagnosed with an oblique injury and will miss more time than initially anticipated, Corey Seidman of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Manager Pete Mackanin estimated Kendrick might be sidelined another 7-10 days with the injury. Oblique injuries often cause players to miss up to a month, so an early return in May is probably the best case scenario for Kendrick. Aaron Altherr and Daniel Nava are seeing time in left field while Kendrick is sidelined.

News
Nava is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Braves, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Aaron Altherr is starting in left field and Michael Saunders in right. Nava is off to a great start on the season, batting .350/.462/.700 with a 1.162 OPS, but continues to be passed over in terms of playing time. He should see increased opportunities until Howie Kendrick (oblique) returns to action, but doesn't appear to have an everyday role in the Philadelphia outfield as of yet.

Injuries
Forearm - Expected to be out until at least Aug 16 (Updated - 4/22/17)
News
Buchholz was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Saturday.

The Phillies needed to clear room on the 40-man roster for new acquisition Ty Kelly and Buchholz was the likely candidate to be removed. The righty underwent surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right forearm Tuesday and will need 4-6 months of recovery.

Edubray Ramos, #61
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERASVK
1340.03.83040
 
News
Ramos was charged with a blown save after allowing a solo homer to Brandon Phillips in the ninth inning of Saturday's game against the Braves.

Ramos was getting a chance to close with both Hector Neris and Joaquin Benoit unavailable Saturday. He struck out the first two batters in the ninth before allowing the homer. He finished the ninth by retiring the next batter and the Phillies went on to win in 10 innings. Ramos has a 5.40 ERA, but also sports a very healthy 13:4 K:BB in 8.1 innings this season.

Position Breakdown
2B - 18
News
Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a 5-2 win over the Braves on Sunday.

The home run was Hernandez's fourth of the season, which is just two short of his career-high. His .939 OPS in the best of of any second baseman in the National League. Manager Pete Mackanin told Corey Seidman of CSN Philadelphia that he attributes Hernandez's power production to an adjustment he made to level out his swing rather than the added muscle the second baseman put on in the offseason. Hernandez has an unsustainable HR/FB rate of 26.7% and a BABIP of .434 which should temper any expectations for this level of production continuing throughout the season. Also of concern is his 27.1% strikeout rate, nearly a 10% increase over last season. If he continues hacking at that rate, he is going to struggle to maintain the batting average gains from last season.

News
Altherr went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Sunday's win over Atlanta.

Altherr is sporting a seven-game hitting streak with eight runs, five extra-base hits, four RBI, two stolen bases and a 1.124 OPS. It's always important to be wary of small sample sizes, but the production is impressive nonetheless. Additionally, he's also started six of the seven games and has batted second in each of the past three.

News
Franco went 2-for-5 with three RBI during Saturday's win over Atlanta.

Now up to 16 RBI, Franco is driving in runs in bunches and getting the most out of his unsustainably low .182/.257/.348 slash line. He's striking out less (13.5 percent), walking more (9.5 percent) and sports a .167 BABIP, so expect some positive regression to kick in sooner than later. Franco's current 33.3 hard-hit percentage is also a career-high mark. This is the time to buy in all fantasy settings.

News
Rodriguez picked up his first career win Sunday with a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in a 5-2 victory over the Braves.

Rodriguez has a 5.73 ERA after allowing seven runs over his first four games, but he has settled in and hasn't allowed a run in his last five appearances. He has seen most of his work in the sixth and seventh innings, but will occasionally be asked to work the eighth inning as he did Sunday.
