6/2/2012 9:58:00 AM
Description: Phillies Ty Wigginton does not have a good matchup on Saturday facing Miami's Ricky Nolasco. He's just 1-for-10 against the Marlins righty.
Insight: Take away his big game last Monday (double, homer, six RBI) and Wigginton simply isn't giving you enough fantasy value to start him. Combined with a bad matchup should have you avoiding Wigginton on Saturday.

Insight: Wigginton has been in an out of the lineup while dealing with soreness in his side, but has gotten plenty of playing time with the Phillies due to all their injuries. He's the definition of a journeyman (.253, 2 HR, 13 RBI), but today he has fantasy value.
5/12/2012 11:17:00 AM
Description: Ty Wigginton is a .444 hitter against Padres starter Edinson Volquez with a pair of homers and four RBI in nine at-bats. It's all-or-nothing against Volquez as he's also struck out four times.
Insight: Wigginton is only on pace for 10-12 homers this season, below his two-year average of 18.5 for 2010-11. However, today's matchup is worth taking a shot at starting him.
3/25/2012 7:17:00 PM
Description: With Chase Utley out indefinitely and Michael Martinez out six to eight weeks with a broken foot, Ty Wigginton should see his fantasy stock skyrocket. He is expected to be Philadelphia's Opening Day second baseman.
Insight: Wigginton actually has a bit of pop (37 home runs combined the past two seasons). He could be a fantasy sleeper, especially if Utley's injury ends up lasting the entire season.
