  • Phillies pick Jimenez to replace Bastardo

     
    And now, there's one left. Tuesday's promotion of Cesar Jimenez to the Phillies means Justin Friend is the only member of the IronPigs' opening day bullpen left on the roster. The Phillies selected Jimenez to replace Antonio Bastardo, who accepted a 50-...
  • Asche, Ruf, among players Phillies hope are building blocks

  • Phillies neither in, nor out

    The situation the Phillies are in isn't nearly as bad as it appears. It's hard to be down on a team that has won five of its last six series and is just 6 1/2 games out of first place in the National League East and 5 1/2 games out of the second wild...

  • Yasiel Puig seems able to put on a show, whatever he does

    It was two hours before the first pitch Thursday, and the Dodger Stadium tour guide was ushering a dozen fans from the seats behind home plate when one of them stopped. "Wait a minute," he said. "Puig is hitting." "But…," said the tour guide....
  • Frandsen more himself now than ever before

    PHILADELPHIA — There was no escape as Kevin Frandsen made his move. Before John Mayberry Jr. had a chance to dart away, Frandsen charged, armed with a towel covered in Barbasol shaving cream, all over Mayberry's face in celebration of his walk-off,...
  • Phillies part ways with another reliever

     
    This could be just the beginning of many changes to come. The Phillies announced Tuesday afternoon that the Blue Jays claimed reliever David Herndon off waivers. Herndon had been on the 60-day disabled list most of the season before being......
  • MEMORABLE WIN FOR BRUNDAGE, IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE ...

     
    It's now one of 1,086 for Dave Brundage. But the ironPigs' 5-4, 11-inning win over Syracuse Saturday night was a memorable one for their first-year manager, in more ways than one. It was his first in a Lehigh Valley uniform, giving him a Triple-A...
  • IRONPIGS LOSING THREE? THAT'S WHAT SCHWIMER SAYS ...

     
    If Michael Schwimer's tweet is correct, the IronPigs are losing Jake Diekman, Raul Valdez and Hector Luna. Schwimer tweeted 'congrats to diekman, valdes and luna for being called up' after the IronPigs 5-1 win at Indianapolis Thursday afternoon. All the...
