NL East

Fantasy Impact: With Archie Bradley missing at least 3-4 weeks, fantasy managers could drop him in 15-team leagues with no injured list spots. Unfortunate news, but difficult to roster a reliever not factoring into the saves conversation before his injury.

The Philadelphia Phillies announced on Wednesday that they had recalled outfielder Mickey Moniak from the alternate site and placed outfielder Adam Haseley on the restricted list for personal reasons. (Source: Phillies on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It is unclear how long Moniak will be up with the big league squad or how much playing time he will get in the short term. The former first overall pick is expected to split time with outfielder Roman Quinn in center field while potentially auditioning for a longer-term role, especially since the Phillies have not gotten much production from the center field position recently.

Fantasy Impact: Haseley is batting just .190 through with no home runs, no RBI, and no stolen bases through his first nine games and recently dealt with a hamstring injury. It is not immediately known why is on the restricted list or how long his absence will last, and Moniak will likely split time with Roman Quinn in center field.

Phillies closer Hector Neris allowed one earned run on three hits and a walk over 1/3 of an inning in Tuesday's loss to the New York Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Neris had been excellent for the Phillies this season and hadn't allowed an earned run in five appearances before Tuesday, so he isn't going to lose the ninth-inning job based on one bad performance.

Phillies shortstop Didi Gregorius went 3-for-7 with an RBI and a stolen base across Tuesday's doubleheader against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Gregorius now has at least one hit in all 11 games this season and is batting .317 with two runs scored, two home runs, nine RBI, and one stolen base on the season.

Phillies starter Aaron Nola allowed three earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the New York Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Through three starts, Nola is now 0-1 with a 3.45 ERA and 1.40 WHIP while striking out 18 batters over 15 2/3 innings. He'll look to get into the win column when he takes on the St. Louis Cardinals at home in his next start.

Phillies starter Chase Anderson allowed two earned runs on three this and three walks while striking out three over four innings in a no-decision against the New York Mets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Through two starts with the Phillies, Anderson had a 4.00 ERA and 1.11 WHIP while striking out six over nine innings. His next start is scheduled to come against the San Francisco Giants at home.

Fantasy Impact: The plan is for Howard to function as a reliever this year. The young starter is still looking to build up his arm strength after a couple of injury plagued seasons so far. Howard will be making his 2021 debut if he winds up pitching today.

Phillies reliever Jose Alvarado walked one over a scoreless eighth inning to earn the win on Sunday against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact: Through five appearances, Alvarado is 2-0 with one save, a 1.93 ERA, and nine strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings. He is firmly entrenched in a setup role for the Phillies and will likely be the first call for the ninth inning on days where closer Hector Neris is unavailable, especially with Archie Bradley landing on the injured list recently.

Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm went 2-for0-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Braves. Bohm was also the focal point of controversial review where it appeared that his foot may have never touched home plate, but he was ruled safe on the field and again ruled safe after the review.

Fantasy Impact: Bohm is batting just .235 with a .623 OPS through nine games, but he has chipped in four runs scored, one home run, five RBI, and a couple of stolen bases.

Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto went 1-for-4 with a double, a run scored, and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Braves. The steal is his first of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Not only is Realmuto the best hitting catcher in baseball, but he'll also contribute some stolen bases for fantasy managers. He stole four in 47 games last season and nine in 145 games in 2019.

Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact: Surprisingly, Hoskins has yet to walk through the first nine games of the season, but he is batting .306 with seven runs scored, two home runs, and five RBI.

Bryce Harper homers again Sunday

Mon, Apr 12th 9:05am EDT
By Mike Maher

Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Braves. The homer was his second of the season and his second in as many days.

Fantasy Impact: After not homering through the first seven games of the season, Harper now has homers in back-to-back games. The Phillies have a full seven-game slate for this upcoming week, and Harper has a handful of excellent matchups.

Phillies pitcher Matt Moore allowed five earned runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out five over five innings in a no-decision against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Moore now has a 7.56 ERA and 2.04 WHIP through his first two starts with the Phillies. He will look to bounce back in his next start against the St. Louis Cardinals at home but should be on waivers in standard formats and on the bench in deeper formats until he proves he can be trusted.

Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk, and two runs scored in Saturday's loss to the Atlanta Braves. The homer was his first of the season.

Fantasy Impact: McCutchen is batting just .208 through eight games but has chipped in a home run and a stolen base for fantasy managers, and his seven walks help boost his on-base percentage to .370.

Phillies starter Zach Eflin allowed four earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two over six innings in Saturday's no-decision against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact: Just two strikeouts over six innings is a bit alarming here, but Eflin did strike out eight over seven innings against this same Braves team in his last start. He allowed three earned runs in the first inning but then settled down to allow just one more run over his next five innings. Eflin will look to get into the win column for the first time when he takes on the Mets in New York in his next start.

Phillies infielder Jean Segura went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's loss to the Braves.

Fantasy Impact: Through seven games to open the year, Segura is batting .222 with two runs scored, no home runs, one RBI, and one stolen base.

Category: Game Recaps


Phillies starter Zack Wheeler allowed three earned runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four over 4 2/3 innings in Friday's loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact: Wheeler was dominant in his first start against the Braves to open the season, firing seven shutout innings while striking out 10 and allowing just one hit. But the Braves were ready for him on Friday and likely benefited from having a recent look at the veteran right-hander. Wheeler will look to bounce back in his next start when he takes on the Mets in New York.

Odubel Herrera did not make the Opening Day roster, the Phillies announced on Monday. (Source: Todd Zolecki on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Herrera struggled throughout spring training, slashing just .240/.255/.500. Adam Haseley seems to have earned the everyday job in CF to start the year. The Phillies aren't particularly deep in the outfield, so it's possible Herrera could still see time in the majors this season if a starter goes down with an injury. For now, Herrera offers very little fantasy upside.

Fantasy Impact: Kingery signed a long-term contract extension before making his debut with the Phillies in 2018, and he flashed his potential in 2019, batting .258 with 19 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 126 games. He hit just .159 with a .511 OPS in 2020, however, and his struggles continued in spring training in 2021. He'll start the year at the team's alternate training site in hopes of regaining some confidence and earning a promotion back to the big league squad.
