Cristian Pache News
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Cristian Pache is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 1 of the Wild Card series against the Miami Marlins. The Phillies will move Pache into the lineup versus left-hander Jesus Luzardo. Normally, Brandon Marsh would be out there, but he'll head to the bench versus the southpaw. Pache will cover left field and bat eighth on Tuesday. He hasn't done much damage with the bat during his 48 games with the Phillies this season. That being said, Pache won't be a great streaming option for this contest.
The Philadelphia Phillies placed outfielder Cristian Pache (elbow) on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to July 11) on Friday with right-elbow irritation and recalled outfield prospect Johan Rojas from Double-A Reading and infielder Drew Ellis from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in corresponding moves. Pache's injury is minor, so he could be back before the end of the month. In a small sample size of 49 at-bats, he's hitting a strong .327 with just two homers and eight RBI in a platoon in center field for the Phils. With Pache out, Rojas, the team's No. 6 prospect per MLB Pipeline, should see some playing time in center field against left-handers. The 22-year-old has impressed with a .306 average, nine home runs and 30 steals at Reading this year, but fantasy managers in single-year leagues shouldn't invest much in him because he probably isn't going to stick around long on the big-league roster.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Cristian Pache (knee) has been activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's game against the Oakland Athletics. The 24-year-old has been out since late-April due to a meniscus tear in his right knee. Before that, Pache was actually hitting well through his first nine games with the Phillies. He's not expected to play everyday, so his fantasy value is going to be limited. Pache was once a top prospect, so maybe he can finally reach his full potential. This is a wait-and-see approach for fantasy managers.
The young Braves outfielder is a plus-plus centerfielder who has star potential simply due to his glove but that's a skill set that has little-to-no value in fantasy baseball. Offensively, his numbers have been nothing to write home. However, he's shown signs that he could potentially develop into a strong hitter when you take into consideration that he's been one of the youngest hitters in each of the leagues he's played in. Pache's 2019 season was especially promising when he posted a 134 wRC+ in Double-A at the age of 20. Another thing to like about his trajectory is the power development a skill that commonly improves with age (physical maturity). After not hitting a home run in his first two pro seasons, Pache's home run totals have since increased each year and reached double-digits in 2019. With some continued physical maturity and tweaks to beef up his launch angle, there are 20 to 25 home runs in that bat. He hasn't run much since stealing 32 bases in 2017 but Pache still possesses good speed and there is the potential for double-digit steals down the road if a base-running coach can help him polish that skill. With an ADP of 365, fantasy managers realize the Braves prospect is still a work-in-progress despite a solid shot at an everyday outfield role in 2021. Pache is a surefire target in dynasty leagues but he's also an intriguing late-round sleeper in redraft leagues.
