Description: Phillies riight-hander Tyler Cloyd has a 3.41 ERA after six starts, but his WHIP is 1.51.
Insight: The 26-year-old has allowed 37 hits and walked 15 batters with 18 strikeouts in 34 1/3 innings. He should only be considered in NL-only leagues.

Description: The Phillies have recalled right-hander Tyler Cloyd to start Tuesday against the Marlins.
Insight: The 26-year-old has posted a 3.46 ERA and a 544/156 K/BB across 671 career minor league innings. He limited Arizona to two hits and two earned over 6 1/3 innings in his 2013 debut on May 10. He'll need to remain in the rotation with Roy Halladay and John Lannan on the DL, and is a decent NL-only option.

Description: Tyler Cloyd's second major league start was a good one. The Phillies righthander let in just one run over seven innings of work in a 4-2 win over Cincinnati.
Insight: Since getting called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in late August, Cloyd has gone 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA. Opponents are hitting just .224 against the 25-year-old in his two starts. He'll be on the mound again Sunday versus Colorado.

Description: Phillies ace Cole Hamels has come down with a stomach virus and Tyler Cloyd will make the start in his place.
Insight: Cloyd is 12-1 with a 2.35 ERA, 1.007 WHIP at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He's not a high strikeout guy, 93 in 142 IP, but he could have low-end fantasy value.
