Brandon Marsh News
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Brandon Marsh (knee) is back in center field and is batting sixth on Friday against the Atlanta Braves and right-hander Jake Odorizzi. Marsh suffered a bruised left knee while attempting to make a catch at the wall on Tuesday, but he's back in the lineup to begin a weekend series against Atlanta. In 29 games with the Phillies since being acquired from the Los Angeles Angels, Marsh is hitting .281/.304/.438 with two home runs, 12 RBI, nine runs scored and a stolen base. He's been much better against right-handed pitching, too, going 73-for-286 (.255) with eight of his 10 home runs against them in 2022.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Brandon Marsh (knee) is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Atlanta Braves. It shouldn't come as a big surprise after Marsh bruised his left knee attempting to make a catch at the wall on Wednesday. The Phillies are also facing tough left-hander Max Fried in Thursday's tilt, so it makes too much sense to rest Marsh for at least one more day. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for now. Matt Vierling will get the start in center field on Thursday and is hitting seventh against Fried. Vierling has been better against southpaws this year, batting .281 (32-for-114) with two of his five home runs against them in 125 plate appearances.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Brandon Marsh (knee) is out of the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Toronto Blue Jays due to a bruised left knee. Marsh injured his knee attempting to make a catch at the wall in Tuesday's game and is day-to-day for now. The good news is that he was able to test his knee by running and taking batting practice before the game on Wednesday. Matt Vierling will get the starting nod in center field on Wednesday and will hit ninth in the batting order against Blue Jays right-hander Kevin Gausman. Vierling won't be very attractive for DFS lineups in the nine-hole for Philly, and he's also hitting just .227 (10-for-44) with no homers, four RBI, five runs scored and six strikeouts in 14 games this month.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Brandon Marsh is one of the Angels top prospects, and despite failing to reach triple-A yet, he could be a key component in the team's lineup this season. After recently being optioned to the minors, Marsh won't start the season in the majors but he was added to the 40-man roster this winter and is on the verge of reaching the majors in a full-time role especially after impressing the club at the alternate training site in 2020. The ongoing decline of Justin Upton does leave the Angels light in the outfield, and Marsh has hit at every level that he's played at. In 2019 at the Double-A level, Marsh played 92 games and had a .300/.383/.428 slash line with seven homers and 18 steals. That form continued into the Arizona Fall League, where Marsh hit .328/.387/.522 with two homers and four steals in 19 games. Marsh's defense is such that he can play any of the three outfield spots with an above-average arm and speed that translates into steals. Marsh can help with steals while hitting for a good average if he can translate his minor league prowess to the next level. He has a bit of power and should contribute runs and RBI wherever he lines up in the batting order. Currently with an ADP of 546, Marsh is a late-round speculative addition in deep redraft leagues, but he could be a difference-maker if/when he gets called up and the shoulder issue that slowed him down during the spring is fully healed.
