Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber had a big day Saturday against the Washington Nationals. The 29-year-old slugger stole home in game one of the doubleheader, but the Phils ended up losing 13-4. In game two of their doubleheader, Schwarber took matters into his own hands, homering twice. Overall, Schwarber went four-for-seven on the day, adding three runs and two RBI to his two homers and stolen base. Schwarber has been a true three-category monster this season, racking up 44 big flies, 97 RBI, and 90 runs, while also chipping in 10 stolen bases. The only knock against his season is his .210 average, but that was to be expected from Schwarbs. He will be taken with a high draft pick next season.
Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto made history in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Friday against the Washington Nationals, but he'll start on the bench in Game 2. Realmuto went 2-for-5 with a double, three stolen bases, an RBI and two strikeouts in Game 1 to become only the second catcher in major-league history to hit 20-plus home runs and steal 20-plus bases in the same season, joining Ivan Rodriguez, who accomplished the feat back in 1999. Realmuto now has 22 home runs and 21 stolen bases in 2022. Garrett Stubbs is behind the dish in Game 2 and is hitting ninth against Nationals right-hander Tommy Romero. In four appearances in September, Stubbs is 1-for-9 with no RBI or runs scored, but he is hitting .276 (27-for-98) on the season.
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Darick Hall has been recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday. The 27-year-old has nine home runs and 16 RBI while batting .264 through 38 games with the Phillies this season. They've decided to add a little pop to their lineup for the final few games of the regular season. Hall isn't in the lineup for the first game of the doubleheader on Friday, but will likely play in the second contest. Yairo Munoz has been optioned to the minors in a corresponding move.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber was 0-for-2 in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs but did walk twice. He's been struggling to hit recently, batting .185 in his last 15 games, but still has five home runs in that span. Overall, it's been a productive season for Schwarber, who's slugged 42 HRs and has slashed .212/.315/.483 with 95 runs, 87 RBI, and nine stolen bases over 149 games. The lefty is a must-start in every league unless fantasy managers are going all in for batting average.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Chicago Cubs as the Phillies look to snap their four-game losing skid. Castellanos just returned from the injured list on Tuesday from an oblique injury, and he's gone 4-for-7 with four singles since his return, but the team will give him a day off heading into the weekend. It's been a disappointing year for the 30-year-old overall after he hit a career-high 34 home runs for the Reds in 2021, as he's slashing .269/.309/.399 with 13 long balls and 61 RBI in 130 games in 2022 for the Phils. Matt Vierling is getting the start in right field on Thursday and is hitting ninth against Cubs right-hander Javier Assad.
