Cesar Hernandez gets three hits in win

The Phillies enjoyed a 20-hit attack in a 10-3 win over the Marlins on Wednesday. Cesar Hernandez, recently off the disabled list, went 3-for-6 with an RBI and two runs scored. Hernandez raised his batting average to .279 for the season.

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez was 1-for-7 in the previous two games since missing nearly a month and a half due to injury. Back in the lineup, he should be a solid all-around fantasy producing, posting a .338 on-base percentage and .733 OPS.

Cesar Hernandez activated from disabled list, leading off Monday

Cesar Hernandez was activated from the disabled list by the Phillies Monday. He is batting leadoff and playing second base.

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez takes the roster spot of Aaron Altherr, who was placed on the disabled list himself with a hamstring injury. When fully healthy Hernandez is a good source of steals with a reliable batting average.

Cesar Hernandez expected back Monday

Cesar Hernandez is expected to rejoin the Phillies on Monday. He's been out since June with an oblique injury.

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez can do a little bit of everything for fantasy owners, has he hit five homers with six stolen bases while hitting a respectable .277 prior to his injury. He's an option for those in need of MI help in deeper leagues.

Cesar Hernandez to miss approximately six weeks

The Phillies expect to be without infielder Cesar Hernandez for approximately the next six weeks. Hernandez is sidelined by an oblique injury.

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez was off to a decent start prior to the injury, hitting five homers and stealing six bases with a .277 average over 238 at-bats. However, given the expected length of his absence, Hernandez can be dropped in most leagues.

Cesar Hernandez (oblique strain) heads to the disabled list

Cesar Hernandez has been placed on the disabled list by the Philadelphia Phillies with an oblique strain. Joaquin Benoit is being activated from the DL to take his place on the roster, and Howie Kendrick is expected to see the majority of the playing time at second base while Hernandez is out.

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez came firing out of the gate this season and was batting .339 with five home runs in early May, but he had slowed down in the last few weeks. His batting average is down to .277, and he has just one home run since April 23. The power was not expected to last as Hernandez hit just six home runs all of last season, but he did bat .294 in 547 at bats in 2016. It sounds initially that he will only need to miss the minimum 10 days, though that could always change.
