Philadelphia Phillies

NL East


Kyle Schwarber had a powerful showing in the Phillies' 4-1 victory over the Red Sox, going 2-for-4 with two home runs and two RBI.

Fantasy Impact: His performance today was a bright spot in what has been a somewhat average season by his standards, marked by a .240 batting average and 13 home runs over 64 games. Schwarber's ability to deliver multi-home run games adds a high ceiling on any given night, making him a valuable asset in fantasy lineups for his power potential. However, his high strikeout rate (.285) continues to be a concern, potentially capping his batting average upside. Fantasy managers should continue to leverage his power, especially in matchups that favor his left-handed bat, while being cognizant of his potential for low-contact outings.

Jose Alvarado secured his 13th save of the season in a tight 4-1 victory over the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Alvarado allowed one hit and struck out one batter across a clean inning of work. His performance continues to solidify his role as a reliable closer for the Phillies, especially considering his strong season stats, including a 3.41 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. With a K/9 rate of 9.9 and a steadily improving strikeout-to-walk ratio, he remains a valuable asset in fantasy leagues, particularly for those in need of saves.

Zack Wheeler delivered a strong performance, allowing just one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out four over seven innings in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact: This outing continues a stellar season for Wheeler, who now boasts a 2.16 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP through 15 starts. His consistent ability to limit base runners and maintain a high strikeout rate (9.8 K/9) reinforces his status as a top-tier fantasy starter. Wheeler's low BABIP (.228) suggests some luck, but his excellent FIP (3.01) indicates that his success is well-supported by underlying metrics. Fantasy managers should continue to view him as a reliable anchor for their pitching staff, capable of delivering quality starts against any lineup.

Fantasy Impact: Stott will take a seat on the bench for manager Rob Thomson, with Weston Wilson filling in at second base and batting eighth Sunday against the Mets.


Ranger Suarez turned in another solid outing, allowing two earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Suarez's performance continues to bolster his already impressive season stats, maintaining a stellar 1.81 ERA and 0.85 WHIP through 13 starts. His ability to suppress runs while striking out batters at a high rate (9.6 K/9) keeps him as a top-tier option in all fantasy formats. Given his consistent dominance and excellent control (5.00 K/BB ratio), Suarez should remain a fixture in fantasy lineups, providing reliable starts and contributing positively in multiple categories. His low BABIP (.240) suggests some luck, but his skill metrics indicate that his success is largely sustainable.

Whit Merrifield went 1-for-4 in the Phillies' 7-2 victory over the Mets with a home run and three RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Merrifield's performance, highlighted by his clutch home run, provided a much-needed boost to his struggling season stats. Despite a concerning .174 batting average over 34 games, this game could be a sign of Merrifield finding his rhythm at the plate. His power display, albeit infrequent this season with only three homers, still offers a glimpse of potential value for fantasy managers in deeper leagues or those in need of occasional power surges. However, his overall low production metrics suggest maintaining cautious expectations.

Nick Castellanos went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI in the Phillies' 7-2 victory over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: His solo shot contributed to the team's robust offensive display, though it was his only hit of the game amidst a pair of strikeouts. Despite the home run, Castellanos's season has been underwhelming, with a batting average lingering around the Mendoza line at .215 and modest power numbers. His .280 wOBA and .243 BABIP suggest he's been somewhat unlucky, but not drastically so. Fantasy managers should view this performance as a bright spot in what has been a challenging season, though it's unlikely to herald a significant turnaround. Keep expectations tempered for Castellanos as he tries to find more consistency at the plate.

Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 in the Phillies' 7-2 victory over the Mets, featuring a home run, a double, one run scored, and one RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Harper's performance today, highlighted by his 15th homer of the season, underscores his continued relevance as a power threat in fantasy lineups. Despite a batting average that might not dazzle (.276), his consistent RBI production (45 in 59 games) and solid wOBA (.379) make him a valuable asset. Fantasy managers should appreciate Harper's ability to contribute across multiple categories, though his strikeout rate remains a slight concern. However, his overall production keeps him as a must-start in most formats.

Garrett Stubbs is out of the starting lineup for the Phillies Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Stubbs will head back to the bench after drawing the start Wednesday. J.T. Realmuto will do the catching at bat second against the Mets.


Aaron Nola delivered a masterclass performance in Wednesday's 2-0 victory over the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact: He pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and no walks while striking out five. This outing is a bright spot in what has been a solid season for Nola, who now boasts a 2.77 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP through 14 starts. His ability to suppress runs while maintaining a low WHIP and a decent strikeout rate (8.11 K/9) continues to make him a reliable option in fantasy leagues. The stellar performance should also help improve his already impressive win-loss record, enhancing his value in formats that reward wins.

Cristian Pache is in the starting lineup for the Phillies Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Pache will draw the start in center field and bat ninth against the Brewers. He is hitting .208 with eight RBI this season.


Johan Rojas is out of the starting lineup for the Phillies Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Rojas will get the day off for rest reasons, with Cristian Pache starting in center field and batting ninth against the Brewers.


David Dahl is out of the starting lineup for the Phillies Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Dahl will head to the bench after a 1-for-2 day Tuesday. Whit Merrifield will patrol left field and hit seventh against the Brewers.


Alec Bohm went 1-for-5 with a home run and an RBI in the Phillies' 2-1 win over the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact: His solo shot contributed crucially to the slim margin of victory. Despite a modest day at the plate, Bohm's home run was a timely reminder of his power potential. Maintaining a .296 batting average through 61 games, Bohm continues to be a reliable source of RBI, now tallying 50 for the season. His consistent hitting, coupled with a solid .354 wOBA, makes him a valuable asset in most fantasy lineups, especially in formats that reward extra-base hits and RBI. However, fantasy managers might be slightly concerned about his strikeout rate, though it remains manageable. Bohm's performance should keep him firmly in the mix as a starting option in fantasy leagues.
