Chad Durbin

  1. Chad Durbin retires

    Nov 25, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Francisco Giants, Game 4

    You won’t have Chad Durbin to kick around anymore: Pitcher Chad Durbin, one of MLB’s good guys, has retired. He was released by #phillies in late May. — Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) November 25, 2013   That release came after he posted a 9.00 ERA in 16 relief appearances. He failed to find an employer after…

  2. Phillies learn Mike Adams and Jeremy Horst are out for the year

    Losing at least two critical members of your bullpen for the final two and a half months of the season has to be disheartening to the Phillies, who consider themselves contenders in the NL East at 48-48, 6.5 games out of first place. The news on Mike Adams and Jeremy Horst comes via the Inquirer’s…

  3. The Phillies release Chad Durbin, Pouliot deliberately tries to upset me

    May 31, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Francisco Giants, Game 4

    The Phillies have announced that they have released reliever Chad Durbin. Then Pouliot goes and tweets quasi-threatening things like this: Chad Durbin released by Phils… wonder if he’ll rejoin Braves on minor league deal. 3.10 ERA in 61 P for Atlanta last year. — Matthew Pouliot (@matthewpouliot) May 31, 2013   That was last year.…

  4. Roy Halladay’s struggles continue in loss to Mets

    Roy Halladay was chased from his season debut last Wednesday against the Braves after he gave up five runs over 3 1/3 innings. And things didn’t get any better tonight against the Mets, as he was charged with seven runs in four innings as part of a 7-2 loss. While Halladay mixed in a pair…

  5. Phillies give up 13 runs to Royals, but it didn’t have to be this way

    Apr 5, 2013, 8:18 PM EDT

    Erik Kratz, Chris Getz

    I should start by writing about the intentional walk that went bad in the Royals’ rout of the Phillies on Friday.  With the Phillies up 4-2 and one out in the sixth, manager Charlie Manuel decided he’d rather have lefty Jeremy Horst face Alex Gordon with the bases loaded than Kyle Kendrick or a right-handed…

  6. The Unbeatable Kansas City Royals

    Mar 6, 2013, 9:23 AM EDT

    Eric Hosmer

    SURPRISE, Ariz. — When I was columnist for The Kansas City Star, I would write an annual column where I predicted the Kansas City Royals to win the division. It wasn’t quite an inside joke … and it certainly wasn’t a serious prediction. It was, instead, my best effort to capture a little bit of…

  7. Phillies void contract with Juan Cruz

    Feb 13, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Juan Cruz

    Juan Cruz signed a minor-league deal with the Phillies last month, but failed to report to camp yesterday because of what general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. called a “miscommunication issue.” It must have been one helluva miscommunication, because Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that Cruz and the Phillies have agreed to “mutually rescind” his contract–which…

  8. The Phillies sign Chad Durbin

    Jan 28, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Washington Nationals

    The lastest move from Ruben Amaro: Sources told MLB.com today the Phillies and right-hander Chad Durbin have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, pending a physical. The deal includes a club option for 2014. Durbin, 35, pitched for the Phillies from 2008-10, when he helped solidify the middle innings. Jerry Crasnick says the deal is for $1.1…

  9. Braves overcome 9-0 deficit, beat Nationals in 11 innings

    Jul 20, 2012, 11:44 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    One can’t help but wonder just how late Drew Storen and Tyler Clippard were out last night. Down 9-0 after five innings, the Braves rallied to beat the Nationals 11-10 in 11 innings Friday and cut Washington’s NL East lead down to 2 1/2 games. It was the first time since 1987 that the Braves had…

  10. The Braves ended the Yankees’ 10-game winning streak last night

    Jun 20, 2012, 12:17 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves' Heyward, Bourn and Prado celebrate their win against the New York Yankees in their MLB Interleague baseball game in New York

    The Yankees have been so good recently that it’s actually news when they lose a game. After winning 10 straight games, the Bombers were cut down 4-3 by the Braves last night. The Yankees had plenty of chances, especially early on against Tim Hudson, but went just 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position. They also…

  11. Please Fredi, stop using your worst relievers in close games

    Apr 10, 2012, 1:47 AM EDT

    Fredi Gonzalez probably throws harder than Livan Hernandez

    Let’s rank the Braves’ relievers in order from best to cannon fodder, shall we: Craig Kimbrel Jonny Venters Eric O’Flaherty Kris Medlen Cristhian Martinez Livan Hernandez Chad Durbin There’s nothing controversial there, right. One could argue about the order of the last two, but really, no one can possibly be that bored. Now let’s look…

  12. It sucks to be Yohan Flande right now

    Apr 3, 2012, 7:16 PM EDT

    Yohan Flande

    The Braves got down to 25 players Monday, demoting pitchers Cory Gearrin and Julio Teheran to Triple-A as part of their cuts. Left as the 12th pitcher on the staff was Yohan Flande, who appeared all set to make his major league debut after spending six years in the minors. Then came the bad news…

  13. Running down the rosters: Washington Nationals

    Feb 23, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Michael Morse, Jayson Werth, Ryan Zimmerman

    The Nationals may have disappointed some by failing to make a big run at the top three free agents, but a vastly improved rotation could make them surprise contenders in the NL East. Rotation Gio Gonzalez – L Edwin Jackson – R Jordan Zimmermann – R John Lannan – L Stephen Strasburg – R Bullpen…

  14. Nationals add reliever Chad Durbin on minor-league deal

    Feb 1, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    Washington wasn’t exactly hurting for bullpen depth, but with so many veteran relievers still looking for homes and willing to sign cheaply Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that the Nationals have signed Chad Durbin to a minor-league deal. Durbin spent last season in Cleveland and struggled, posting a 5.53 ERA while serving up 12 homers…
