Dream11 Fantasy Baseball: Yankees at Phillies

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Philadelphia Phillies (1-3) at New York Yankees (8-1)

Wednesday, August 5th, 4:05 PM EDT

Projected starters

RHP Zack Wheeler (1-0, 1.29 ERA) vs TBD

Game Preview

The Phillies have not played many games due to the several postponements, but they have won just one of their first four contests this season, so they didn't exactly start the season on a strong note. The same can't be said about the Yankees, though, as they have won eight of their first nine games while looking like a serious contender in the American League. The Yankees are yet to announce their starter for this matchup, although J.A. Happ is probable to get the nod. Meanwhile, the Phillies will send Zach Wheeler to the mound. He tossed seven innings of one-run ball in a win over the Miami Marlins in his season debut.
