  • Reading's Jesse Biddle takes gem in stride ...

     
    Like most pitchers, Jesse Biddle has a routine he follows before his start. The last thing he does before leaving the bullpen is pitch to a simulated hitter, with a hitter standing by the plate and his catcher calling pitches. Last Monday night in...
  • COOK'S RELEASE LEADS TO SPECULATION OVER IRONPIGS ROTATION

     
    So, disregard my last post ... I thought for sure the Phillies would shell out $100,000 to keep Aaron Cook around for a few months at least (assuming he would've had a June 1 opt-out) as insurance in the event Roy Halladay's spring struggles continue into...

    Ruben Amaro Jr. wouldn’t call it a setback, but an injury that was originally supposed to cost Chase Utley only 15 days has now been extended. “He didn’t have any [additional] diagnostics done or anything,” Amaro said. “It&#...
  • Howard sitting with groin tightness; Ruiz hit by pitch on wrist

     
    At least so far it doesn’t appear to be anything serious. Ryan Howard is not in tonight’s starting lineup. Manager Charlie Manuel said his first baseman told him during Thursday’s game that his right groin was bothering him. Before...
  • IronPigs rainout doesn't shed any light on Phillies' pitching decision ...

     
    If you thought maybe Friday's ironPigs rainout might give us a hint about who the Phillies are going to pull up to replace injured starter John Lannan, it didn't. The decision, as most of these types on the major league level, will remain a state secret...
  • At least one former teammate of Zambrano likes his chances with the Phillies

     
    After Chase Utley and Charlie Manuel made everyone laugh when they posed for a picture with The Wiggles during batting practice, assistant GM Scott Proefrock addressed a more pressing issue: a Phillies signing. The Phillies signed right-hander Carlos...
  • The roster is final

     
    The Phillies finalized their Opening Day roster. It features lots of veterans, some younger players and one very, very new face. The 25-man roster includes 12 pitchers, two catchers, six infielders and five outfielders. Pitchers: Right-handers Mike Adams,...
