Fantasy Impact: Altherr has now homered in three straight games, racking up nine RBIs over that span. The outfielder is hitting .281 with 19 homers, 54 runs, 60 RBIs, and five steals this season.

Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins had another big game for his team on Tuesday. He went 2-for-3 with a double and four RBIs to help down the Dodgers 6-2.

Fantasy Impact: Ho-hum, another huge night at the plate for the rookie star. Hoskins is now batting .299 with 18 homers and 43 RBIs. If it weren't for Cody Bellinger's fine rookie season, Hoskins would have a legitimate shot at the Rookie of the Year award, despite only playing in 39 games.

Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera went 2-for-3 with his 40th double of the year on Tuesday. He also drove in one and scored once as the Phillies beat the Dodgers 6-2.

Fantasy Impact: Herrera is now batting .288 while ranking seventh in the league in doubles. He also has 13 homers, 63 runs, and 51 RBIs. He's been a consistent fantasy producer over the second half of the season.

The Phillies defeated the Oakland A's on Saturday by the score of 5-3. Jorge Alfaro provided the big blast with a two-run home run in the sixth inning. The home run was Alfaro's fourth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Alfaro raised his average to .317 with his 2-for-4 night. He has a solid .356 on-base percentage, despite drawing only two walks, to go along with an .844 OPS.

Phillies outfielder Nick Williams went 2-for-4 with a run scored in his team's 10-0 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Williams continues to put the finishing touches on a solid rookie season. The outfielder is now batting .300 with 10 homers, 39 runs, and 48 RBIs in 257 at-bats.

The Phillies pounded 14 hits in Thursday's 10-0 win over the Marlins. Cesar Hernandez had a big night, going 4-for-5 with two runs scored. He's now batting .293 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez has career highs in doubles, home runs, runs scored and slugging percentage. He's become one of the more reliable lead off hitter in the National League.

The Phillies enjoyed a 13-hit attack in an 8-1 win over the Marlins on Wednesday. Freddy Galvis had an excellent night at the plate, going 3-for-5 with two runs scored, raising his average to .255 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: Galvis was just 1-for-15 over the previous four games before Wednesday's three-hit game. Galvis is on pace for 30 doubles and 12 home runs. While his .307 on-base percentage is low, it's the highest of his career.

The Phillies got help via the long ball in a 5-4 win over the Nationals on Saturday. Maikel Franco hit his 20th home run of the season and finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Franco has had a generally disappointing season, batting .226 with an OPS under .700. On the positive side, he's on pace to hit 23 home runs and knock in 75.

The Phillies hit two home runs on Thursday, but fell to the Nationals by the score of 4-3. Tommy Joseph ended a three-game slump with his 21st home run. It was his only hit in three at-bats and is now batting .239 this season.

Fantasy Impact: Joseph remains on pace for around 25 home runs and 75 RBI. Those are solid power numbers, but his low batting average and on-base percentage restricts his fantasy value.

J.P. Crawford will make his season debut on Tuesday. He'll play third base and bat seventh.

Fantasy Impact: Crawford's natural position is SS, but he has made starts at the hot corner in Triple-A this season. He could gain eligibility across the diamond in his debut with the Phillies. Still considered a top prospect, it's to be determined if Crawford can put it together at the top level.


Phillies center fielder Pedro Florimon went 1-for-1 on Saturday but was forced to leave the game early after dislocating his right ankle while beating out an infield single.

Fantasy Impact: This didn't look good as the game was delayed for 15 minutes while emergency workers tended to Florimon's ankle. The outfielder posted a .348 average in 15 games for the Phillies but his season is more than likely over.

Aaron Nola gets back on track

PHI

Aaron Nola allowed one run over seven innings in a win over the Braves on Monday. Nola gave up five hits and struck out six.

Fantasy Impact: Nola had given up 12 earned runs over his last two starts, so it was good to see him look more like the budding superstar that he appeared to be prior to those two starts. He'll take on the Marlins in his next start, against whom he allowed seven earned runs in his previous outing.

The Phillies improved to 13-2 against the Braves this year with a 5-1 win on Monday. Cameron Rupp provided a big blast with a homer run in the seventh inning. He finished with two RBI and now has 14 home runs and 30 RBI this season.

Fantasy Impact: Rupp has four home runs in his last seven games. His batting average and on-base percentage are low, but Rupp is on pace to surpass last season's career best 16 home runs.

Hector Neris pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout against the Cubs on Sunday to earn his 16th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Neris now has five scoreless outings in a row, and looks to be in peak form. Though the Phillies struggle to win games, Neris should be good for a handful of saves for the remainder of the season.

Andres Blanco has been a disappointment off the bench this season after thriving in that role the last few seasons. He had a big day on Tuesday, hitting two home runs in four at-bats. He knocked in four and is batting .174 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: Blanco had only five extra-base hits in 111 at-bats before his two home run day. His four RBI nearly matched the five he had coming into the day.

The Phillies exploded to seven runs in the sixth inning propelling them to a 12-9 win over the Giants. Ty Kelly provided the big blow with a pinch-hit grand slam. The home run was Kelly's second of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Kelly is batting only .187 in 75 at-bats this season and 1-for-4 this month. He has only 132 career at-bats, so his overall fantasy value is minimal.

Hyun-soo Kim drives in one

PHI

Phillies outfielder Hyun Soo Kim went 1-for-4 on Thursday with a single and one RBI. The Phillies went on to lose to the Giants 5-4.

Fantasy Impact: Kim's tenure with the Phillies has been much like his with the Orioles as he's been a part-time player. He has played more consistently with Odubel Herrera sidelined by a hamstring strain but expect him to return to the bench when Herrera returns. Kim is batting .213 with one homer and 11 RBIs this season.

Leiter gave up eight runs (four earned) and seven hits in five innings of work while earning the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Leiter showed some promise in his last two starts only giving up three runs while putting up good strikeout totals. He came back to earth this start against a modest San Diego offense. He can be safely avoided at this time.

Category: Game Recaps


Efflin kept the Phillies in the game but unfortunately gave up four runs in 5 1/3 innings of work. He did manage to strike out five in a losing cause.

Fantasy Impact: Efflin owns an ugly ERA of 5.76 on the year and has a K/9 rate of 5.6. Until he can show some consistency he needs to be avoided in all formats.

Category: Game Recaps


Velasquez left after the first inning due to numbness in his right middle finger. In his only inning of work he gave up three hits and three runs.

Fantasy Impact: Owners may want to monitor his situation as the Phillies may want to sit him out for his next start.
