Philadelphia Phillies Roster
- NL East
- Citizens Bank Park
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Spencer Howard will start for the team on Monday against the Washington Nationals. Howard has pitched to a 5.11 ERA, a 4.30 FIP, 29 strikeouts, and 17 walks in 10 appearances spanning 24.2 innings for the Phillies this season. Six of those 10 appearances have been starts. Most recently, Howard limited the New York Yankees to a hit and a walk in three scoreless innings during his start on Wednesday. He could be worth a look as a streaming option in deeper leagues against a Nationals lineup that is decidedly middle of the pack in runs scored. So far this season, 17 teams have scored more runs than the Nationals.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Adam Haseley (COVID-19) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list on Saturday, according to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com. There's no word on whether Haseley tested positive or is just feeling ill and this move was precautionary. Haseley has only played nine games in Philadelphia this season, going 4-for-21 with a double and two runs scored. He hasn't looked much better at Triple-A either, as he's slashing .210/.319/.290 with one home run, one steal, four RBI and nine runs scored over 19 games. There's no reason he should be rostered in any format currently, except for maybe deep dynasty leagues.
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins stole his third base of the season Friday, going 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI, and the one steal in two attempts. He's now 3-for-5 in stolen base attempts on the year. Amidst a relatively down year, Hoskins has quietly been excellent over his last 15 games, slashing .265/.422/.612 with three homers, 12 runs, 12 RBI, and the one steal. Hoskins is no speed-demon, but the occasional theft will bolster his fantasy value nonetheless.
Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Jean Segura went 1-for-4 out of the leadoff spot against the Atlanta Braves Friday, hitting a double and driving in two runs. Segura now has a five-game hit streak and has driven in at least one run in each of those games. He has an .812 OPS with five homers, six steals, 36 runs, and 32 RBI in 269 at-bats on the season. He's had some luck, as his wOBA of .352 sits 30 points above his .322 xwOBA, but even so he makes for an excellent option in the middle-infield spot for fantasy managers.
Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto homered against the Atlanta Braves Friday night, going 1-for-3 with a solo shot, a walk, and two runs scored. The home run, off Braves starter Max Fried, was Realmuto's 10th of the season. After being drafted as the top catcher in most fantasy leagues, Realmuto's .816 OPS, 10 homers, and five steals are a bit underwhelming, but he's been excellent over his last 15 games with an .881 OPS, three homers, and a steal in that time. Despite not being the single top catcher this season, he still offers plenty of value for fantasy managers.
