  • 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......

  • Phillies Prescription

    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...
  • 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......
  • Darin Ruf: Surprise, surprise

  • With Brown activated, Ruf prepping for yet another new position

     
    Charlie Manuel warned us this might happen. With the Phillies having activated Dom Brown from the 7-day (concussion) disabled list, Manuel has Darin Ruf starting in right field for tonight's game against the Chicago Cubs. To make room for Brown......
  • Michael Young pulled from the lineup; Rollins not starting

     
    As soon as Michael Young was pulled from Thurdsay’s starting lineup and replaced by Kevin Frandsen at first base, the guesses were flying, especially after a report surfaced that he had cleared waivers. Was Young traded back to Texas? Did......
  • Manuel gives some credit to Dom Brown

     
    Some notes and stats to take in.... Kyle Kendrick's nine-game winning streak over the Marlins is tied for the second-longest active winning streak against one team in the majors (Roy Halladay's 10-game winning streak over the Orioles is the longest).........
