Team News
Spencer Howard Could Play Bigger Role

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Spencer Howard could play a bigger role for the team in a shortened season. Before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus, Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said the team wants Howard to throw meaningful innings late in the season. As a result, Howard's spring schedule was different than most pitchers in an attempt to preserve innings for late in the season. Howard was limited to 99 1/3 innings last year due to a sore shoulder, so the team will likely cap his innings around 130 innings as a rookie. Howard is the top-ranked pitching prospect in the Phillies system and will crack the rotation at some point this season. With the season delayed, Howard is rapidly gaining fantasy value as a late-round pick.

J.T. Realmuto Contract Negotiations On Hold

Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto and the team have tabled contract extension talks amid the coronavirus shutdown in MLB. The Phillies won their arbitration case against the All-Star catcher, who will make $10 million this season. The Phillies, however, have made it known they want to lock up Realmuto long term ahead of his impending free agency after the season. Realmuto was one of the best catchers in the league last year slashing .275/.328/.493 with 25 homers and nine steals. He should be the first or second catcher off the board in fantasy drafts and currently carries an average draft position of 53rd overall.

Aaron Nola Throws Bullpen

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Nola threw a 35-40-pitch bullpen session Thursday morning and feels fine after battling an illness the past few days. Nola said he expected to start another Grapefruit League game before camp ends, but that is now up in the air with spring training suspended. Nola has thrown 200-plus innings each of the past two seasons and has averaged more than a strikeout per inning both seasons. He should be an ace for the Phillies and fantasy managers whenever the season begins, and he might come at a nice discount.

Jake Arrieta Leaves Start With Shoulder Stiffness

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta experienced shoulder stiffness in his Spring Training start vs the Rays Thursday. Arrieta said it is not an injury, and that he isn't concerned. Arrieta will have plenty of time to rest up with MLB suspending Spring Training amid coronavirus fears, but he won't be a very attractive fantasy option when baseball does resume. The veteran righty pitched to a 4.64 ERA last season with a 4.89 FIP and hasn't averaged more than a strikeout per innings since 2015. His fantasy value at this stage of his career is limited to very deep leagues or NL-Only formats.

Aaron Nola To Throw Bullpen Thursday

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Nola (flu) is feeling better and will throw a bullpen session on Thursday, according to manager Joe Girardi. If Nola gets through his bullpen session, he'll move to a simulated game on Saturday and could be back in Grapefruit League action next week. The 26-year-old right-hander disappointed a bit in 2019 after being named to the All-Star team for the first time in 2018. He had a 3.87 ERA and 1.27 WHIP while striking out 229 and walking 80 in 34 starts (202 1/3 innings). Nola will still be a high-end SP2 for fantasy owners, as he's fanned 200-plus hitters each of the last two seasons, and he had a career-high 10.2 K/9 last year.
