Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Starts opening two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp is catching and batting seventh Friday against the Braves

Knapp was expected to back up Jorge Alfaro, but it's been Knapp in the starting lineup for the opening two games of the season. The exact playing time split between the pair isn't yet clear. Manager Gabe Kapler said that both catchers will start three out of the first six games, though he doesn't appear to be alternating who starts. It may take a week or two to determine which Phillies' catcher will be a better fantasy asset.

Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Could split time this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Gabe Kapler indicated that Knapp could split time behind the dish with Jorge Alfaro this season, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Alfaro was the favorite to see the majority of reps behind the dish for the Phillies, but Knapp picked up the Opening Day start and Kapler said he intends to give each catcher three starts through the team's first six games. The 26-year-old hit a respectable .257 while posting a .368 OBP in his rookie season, but he lacks power (.368 slugging percentage) and is expected to hit near the bottom of the order when he plays, so there are likely more valuable fantasy options out there.

Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Secures backup catcher role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp will open the season as the backup catcher behind primary starter Jorge Alfaro, Bob Brookover of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Knapp officially clinched his spot on the Opening Day roster Sunday after his main competition for the No. 2 catcher role, Cameron Rupp, was designated for assignment. Though he submitting a solid .368 on-base percentage across 204 plate appearances as a rookie last season, Knapp lacks power and will hit low in the order when he starts, limiting his upside in both season-long NL-only formats and DFS contests.

Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Set to compete for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp will compete with teammate Cameron Rupp in spring training for backup catching duties, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Knapp and Rupp are pretty evenly matched when it comes to defensive attributes behind the plate, and it looks to be a tight competition for a spot on Philadelphia's Opening Day roster. The 29-year-old backstop has a slight advantage at the plate, batting .257 with three home runs and 13 RBI a season ago -- Rupp hit .217 but showed impressive power, smashing 14 home runs on the year. Both Knapp and Rupp have options remaining on their contracts, so either one could end up at Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start the season.

Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Gets first start since early August
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp started at catcher Friday and went 0-for-3 with strikeout in 4-0 loss to the A's.

Knapp was making his first start since Aug. 3. He was activated from the disabled list earlier in the week, but had yet to appear in a game. His playing time may be limited over the remainder of the season as the Phillies seem to be focused on getting Jorge Alfaro at-bats this month.
