  • With another lefty waiting, Manuel makes a lineup change

     
    This is the last thing the Phillies wanted to see: another left-handed pitcher. The Phillies are batting only .182 against left-handed pitchers this year; their left-handed hitters are even worse (.136). And get this --- the Phillies are one of......
  • Howard unlikely to move from clean-up spot in near future; Roster move made

     
    Ryan Howard's numbers are hardly that of a clean-up hitter, especially in the last five weeks. From May 8 to June 12, Howard hit .218 (22-for-101) with one home run in 111 plate appearances (29 games, 26 starts). His slugging......
  • Papelbon patiently waiting his turn

     
    Even if the Phillies are losing, get ready to see Jonathan Papelbon take the mound. The closer hasn’t pitched since April 4, the last game in Atlanta. He wasn’t complaining and understands that getting into a game can be tricky......
  • Amaro weighs in on DL stint for Utley that will be more than 15 days

     
    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&#...
  • Phillies Prescription

     
    Is there anything more depressing than watching this Phillies team stumble through loss after loss, going nowhere in the most dispiriting manner possible? They can't hit and they won't accept a walk, so there's never anyone on base. For that......

    The Phillies announced that pitcher John Lannan will come off the disabled list and will start Monday's game at home against the Nationals. He's been on the DL since April 18. Although Lannan won't officially be activated until Monday, Tyler......
  • Phillies Opener

     
    When I was out in Arizona a few weeks ago, we went to see the Giants play a preseason game with the Padres. My friend out there, a degenerate gambler, baited me into wagering him over the Phillies' final record......
  • 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,...
  • Beginning of the end for Valle as a Phillies prospect?

     
    The Phillies decision to add Tommy Joseph to their 40-man roster on Thursday wasn't that much of a surprise -- after all, he was ranked among baseball's top young catching prospects before his concussion-shortened 2013 IronPigs season, and even with his...
  • Revere impressed by the dedicated fans; All eyes on Kendrick

     
    It’s a big day for Kyle Kendrick. Not only is he starting the season in the rotation, something he’s been fighting for for several years, but he’s the Phillies’ starter for their home opener today. Manager Charlie Manuel said that,...
  • Howard's DL stint could be longer than 15 days

     
    Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. talked Saturday of the need to think of Ryan Howard's health in the long term. That could be foreshadowing of a DL stint longer than 15 games for the slugging first baseman. Howard will......
