Starting Lineup

1 Andrew McCutchen LF
2 Jean Segura 3B
3 Bryce Harper RF
4 Rhys Hoskins 1B
5 J.T. Realmuto C
6 Didi Gregorius SS
7 Scott Kingery 2B
8 Adam Haseley CF

Quick notes: Would it surprise anyone if Bryce Harper had an MVP-type season in his second year in Philadelphia? Rhys Hoskins is a great bounce-back target. He won’t give you a good average, but it can’t get much worse than last year. Andrew McCutchen seems to be forgotten, but he makes for a great, albeit boring, OF3.

Pitching Rotation

1 Aaron Nola R
2 Zack Wheeler R
3 Jake Arrieta R
4 Vince Velasquez R
5 Zach Eflin R

Quick notes: While is ADP isn’t as high as it was last year, Aaron Nola is still being overdrafted. Were the Mets really wrong that they helped Zack Wheeler turn a mediocre career into a big payday with the Phillies? Nick Pivetta and Zach Eflin are intriguing late-round targets with upside.


Quick notes: The Phillies’ bullpen just couldn’t stay healthy last year, as they lost David Robertson, Tommy Hunter, and Seranthony Dominguez. Dominguez has the most skill of the bunch, so he could leap Neris for the primary closer’s role.
