Matt Harvey pitched a strong five innings, giving up only one hit and no runs against the Phillies on Tuesday. His five strikeouts showed that he is progressing as he ties to rebound from a disastrous 2017. Harvey may end up being a good sleeper fantasy pick, but it may depend on the match up.
The Phillies-Mets game that was scheduled for tonight has been canceled due to cold weather in New York. This postponement pushes back Matt Harvey’s first start of the year to Tuesday. Owners will want to monitor this situation, as the weather may impact Tuesday’s contest.
Stanton made his Yankees debut a memorable one by slugging 2 homers against the Blue Jays. This is a great sign that he will once again put up monster fantasy numbers this year.
Hicks went 2-for-4 on opening day, but strained his intercostal muscle. Fantasy owners will want to monitor this situation since this could be a lingering injury.
