C - PHI
Phillies backup catcher Andrew Knapp is expected to catch later in the week as he works his way back from an injured ribcage, according to Scott Lauber on Twitter.
Knapp batted .213 and hit eight home runs over 136 at-bats in 2019 and is not relevant in fantasy unless there is an injury to J.T. Realmuto.
Andrew Knapp went 1-for-4 with a double knocking in a run in the 7-4 win by Phillies over Dodgers in day action.
Knapp is only an option in two-catcher leagues.
The Phillies avoided a sweep against the Brewers with a 5-2 win on Sunday. Andrew Knapp had a good day at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a run scored. He raised his batting average to .258 for the season.
Knapp has done a solid job when given the opportunity. His on-base percentage is .360 and has an OPS of .743. Overall, he's done better than Cameron Rupp and should see more playing time behind the plate over the next 70 games.
The Phillies improved to 27-53 with a 7-1 win over the Mets on Sunday. Andrew Knapp had two of the Phillies 12 hits, in four at-bats. He knocked in a run and scored two and is batting .264 for the season.
