  1. Phillies sticking with general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.

    Sep 12, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Philadelphia Phillies

    General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. fired manager Charlie Manuel last month, but Amaro himself won’t be taking the fall for the Phillies’ decline. Team president David Montgomery told Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer that “Ruben is our general manager” and went on to defend some of the oft-criticized decisions the GM has made recently…

  2. Domonic Brown out indefinitely with Achilles’ tendon injury

    Sep 5, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    Domonic Brown hasn’t played since September 1 because of an Achilles’ tendon injury and Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that the Phillies outfielder has been diagnosed with tendinitis. Brown told Zolecki that he won’t be back in the lineup for “at least a week” and it sounds like his returning this season could be in…

  3. Phillies sign Cuban pitcher Miguel Alredo Gonzalez to revised deal at $36 million discount

    Aug 30, 2013, 3:52 PM EDT

    Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez AP

    Back in mid-July the Phillies and Cuban right-hander Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez reportedly agreed to a six-year, $48 million contract, but that deal fell apart over concerns about the health of his elbow. Today the Phillies announced that they’ve officially signed Gonzalez, but the contract is for three years and $12 million, with a vesting option…

  4. Quote of the Day: Ron Darling on Brandon Phillips

    Aug 29, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds Photo Day

    Brandon Phillips lashing out at a reporter yesterday has led to a lot of interesting discussions about the player/reporter relationship. My favorite is by Will Leitch of Sports On Earth, who wrote an interesting article about the power struggle that players always dominate. While announcing this afternoon’s Mets game Ron Darling also had a good…

  5. Nationals castoff Roger Bernadina signs with Phillies

    Aug 21, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Roger Bernadina

    This would have been a lot more fun before the Nationals-Phillies rivalry involved a pair of sub-.500 teams, but Roger Bernadina has signed with Philadelphia after being released by Washington. Bernadina lost his spot on the Nationals’ bench following the trade for David DeJesus, but before struggling this season he’s generally been a decent fourth…

  6. Charlie Manuel is out as Phillies manager, Ryne Sandberg named interim replacement

    Aug 16, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Charlie Manuel

    The Phillies have a press conference scheduled for 2:30 p.m. today and have refused to indicate what it’s about, but Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com knows: Charlie Manuel is out as manager. Manuel recently won his 1,000th career game and it’s unclear if he’s being forced out or leaving on his own at age 69. He…

  7. Phillies release Delmon Young

    Aug 14, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    Delmon Young

    As expected Delmon Young passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment last week. He then rejected an assignment to the minors, at which point the Phillies released him. Young’s contract was cheap enough that if any team thought he had any sort of meaningful value they could have claimed him off waivers, so…

  8. Delmon Young designated for assignment by Phillies

    Aug 9, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Delmon Young

    Good night, sweet prince. They signed him to an incentive-laden deal, paid him to lose weight, waited for him to recover from ankle surgery, and then handed him the starting job in right field. And now the Phillies have designated Delmon Young for assignment after he hit .261 with eight homers and a .699 OPS…

  9. Chase Utley’s extension with Phillies worth up to $75 million

    Aug 8, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Chase Utley

    Chase Utley‘s contract extension with the Phillies is officially a two-year, $27 million deal, but Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the second baseman can earn up to $75 million depending on what happens with vesting options. According to Rosenthal the contract includes three vesting options for $15 million each in 2016, 2017, and 2018,…

  10. Concussion ends Phillies prospect Tommy Joseph’s season

    Aug 8, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Philadelphia Phillies

    Phillies catching prospect Tommy Joseph has been shut down for the remainder of the season after continuing to experience symptoms following a May concussion. Joseph was a second-round pick in 2009 and came over to the Phillies from the Giants in the Hunter Pence trade, but Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the…

  11. Delmon Young has been benched by the Phillies

    Aug 7, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Delmon Young

    Domonic Brown is back from a concussion and the Phillies have decided to shift Darin Ruf to right field in order to keep his bat in the lineup, which means … Delmon Young has been benched. Young took a cheap, incentive-laden one-year deal from the Phillies coming off ankle surgery, with general manager Ruben Amaro…

  12. Phillies hit a snag in $50 million deal with Cuban defector Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez

    Aug 7, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez AP

    Two weeks ago the Phillies were said to have agreed to a six-year, $50 million deal with Cuban defector Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, but the contract has yet to be announced officially and apparently it may not actually happen now. For their part the Phillies have said absolutely nothing about Gonzalez one way or another and…

  13. Joey Votto reaches base six times as Reds rout Phillies

    May 18, 2013, 7:19 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    If you needed a reminder that Joey Votto is the best pure hitter in baseball, you got one this evening as the Reds defeated the Phillies 10-0. Joey Votto came to the plate six times and reached base all six times, including a two-run home run in the top of the ninth that served as…

  14. Aaron Cook returns to Rockies on minor league contract

    Mar 28, 2013, 6:22 PM EDT

    Aaron Cook Reuters

    After being released by the Phillies earlier this week, Aaron Cook is coming home. According to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post, Cook has agreed to a minor league deal with the Rockies. He’ll begin the season with Triple-A Colorado Springs, but is hopeful of getting another chance in the majors soon. Given the state…

  15. Aaron Hicks named Twins’ starting center fielder

    Mar 25, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Aaron Hicks, Joe Vavra

    Three weeks ago when Aaron Hicks had a three-homer game against the Phillies it seemed all but certain that he’d be the Opening Day center fielder in Minnesota and now the Twins have made it official. Hicks, who ranked among Baseball America‘s top 100 prospects this year for the fourth time, will be making the…

  16. Twins prospect Aaron Hicks goes 4-for-5 with three homers

    Mar 7, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Aaron Hicks, Joe Vavra

    It’s been pretty obvious since the Twins traded both Denard Span and Ben Revere this offseason that they want 23-year-old former first-round pick Aaron Hicks to claim the Opening Day job in center field. Today he probably erased any doubt, going 4-for-5 with three homers, six RBIs, and a stolen base in a split squad…

  17. Phillies acquire Ben Revere from Twins for Vance Worley and Trevor May

    Dec 6, 2012, 12:14 PM EDT

    Ben Revere AP

    When the Twins traded Denard Span last week the assumption was that they did so in part because Ben Revere was ready to step in as their new center fielder and leadoff man, but now they’ve traded Revere to the Phillies. Todd Zolecki of MLB.com broke the news and Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com says the…

  18. Don’t expect many strikeouts in Twins-Phillies game tonight

    Jun 12, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    contact poster

    There are lots of big-name starters pitching tonight–Felix Hernandez, Adam Wainwright, Zack Greinke, Johnny Cueto, Madison Bumgarner, CC Sabathia–but to me the most interesting matchup of the day involves a pair of back-of-the-rotation starters in the Minnesota-Philadelphia game. Nick Blackburn of the Twins and Kyle Kendrick of the Phillies have two of the four lowest…

  19. A woman is suing the Phillie Phanatic

    Jun 12, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Phanatic

    A woman named Suzanne Peirce was minding her own business when, according to the complaint she recently filed, she was attacked by the Phillie Phanatic, who picked her up and threw her into a hotel pool: Peirce claims she hurt just about everything in the incident, including suffering “severe and permanent injuries to her head,…

  20. Cliff Lee shuts out the Giants for ten innings, Phillies lose

    Apr 19, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Francisco Giants

    Blast living in the eastern time zone. For, because I went to bed at a reasonable hour, I missed an unreasonably good pitching matchup: Cliff Lee vs. Matt Cain, each of whom shut the other side out for nine innings. Those nine innings took only one hour and fifty-minutes, by the way. The difference: Cliff…

  21. Aaron Harang falls just short of history with nine consecutive strikeouts

    Apr 13, 2012, 11:26 PM EDT

    Aaron Harang Getty

    Aaron Harang led the National League in strikeouts way back in 2006 as a member of the Reds, but we certainly don’t think of him a strikeout-type anymore. Some blame Dusty Baker for killing his arm, but the 33-year-old right-hander has averaged just 6.6 K/9 over the past two seasons. Still, he came very close…

  22. Players with more homers than the Phillies

    Apr 9, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Hunter Pence fans

    Jay Bruce Miguel Cabrera Yoenis Cespedes Corey Hart Omar Infante Alex Avila Carlos Beltran Lucas Duda Prince Fielder Aaron Hill Eric Hosmer Adam LaRoche Matt Kemp Nick Markakis Carlos Pena Pablo Sandoval Carlos Santana Josh Willingham Yeah, I’m trolling a bit. But this has been an ugly offensive display. Not only do the 1-3 Phillies…

  23. Mariners sign reliever Aaron Heilman to minor-league contract

    Jan 10, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    Aaron Heilman

    Aaron Heilman had an ugly 6.88 ERA for the Diamondbacks last season, so not surprisingly he’s had to settle for a minor-league contract and Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that he’s signed with the Mariners. After being released by the Diamondbacks in mid-July he latched on with the Phillies and then the Pirates, but failed…

  24. Report: Phillies, Jim Thome agree on one-year contract

    Nov 4, 2011, 7:04 PM EDT

    Thome Phillies AP

    The Hot Stove is off and running. Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that the Phillies and Jim Thome have agreed on a one-year contract, pending a physical. Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com was told by a source that the veteran slugger will receive $1.25 million. Thome, who currently sits at eighth place on the all-time list with…

  25. Hank Aaron Award nominees announced (and then picked apart)

    Oct 3, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Dustin Ackley

    The Hank Aaron Award nominees were announced on Monday.  The award is meant to honor the best offensive performers in each league.  As always, there’s one nominee from every team and the winner will be selected by a fan vote in combination with a vote of select Hall of Fame players. Here are the nominees:…
