    Two hits in 42 at bats is no way to go through life, son.

    Washington Nationals v Miami Marlins

    Kevin Frandsen was shockingly cut by the Phillies towards the end of spring training despite the club’s lack of depth. Frandsen is on a better team and performing well, but he is still upset about the way things ended in Philadelphia.

    Mar 30, 2014, 7:10 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Houston Astros

    After releasing Ronny Cedeno on Tuesday, CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury reports that the Phillies have re-signed the infielder to a minor league deal and assigned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The Phillies had originally signed Cedeno in mid-January and brought him to big league camp as a non-roster invitee. Cedeno was one of a handful of candidates…

    If you thought the Mike Trout news was big, wait until you hear this! The Phillies have acquired utility infielder Jayson Nix from the Rays for an undisclosed amount of cash, CSN Philly’s John Clark reports. Nix spent the spring with the Rays but did not make the cut. Nix, 31, had a decent spring…

  8. Phillies outright Kevin Frandsen to Triple-A Lehigh Valley

    The Phillies, in a bit of a roster conundrum with the latest rash of injuries, have outrighted infielder Kevin Frandsen to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki reports. Frandsen has 72 hours to accept or reject the assignment. Zolecki adds that GM Ruben Amaro told Frandsen he still has a chance to make the Opening…

    Phillies infielder Freddy Galvis had an abscess removed from his left knee on Wednesday. After the procedure, doctors found a staph infection, but that wasn’t the worst news. CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury reports that Galvis has come down with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, more commonly known as MRSA. Simply put, Galvis has an antibiotic-resistant infection. Galvis will…

  10. Freddy Galvis hospitalized with a staph infection

    Next up: Cliff Lee has a bad surfing wipeout, Ryne Sandberg injures himself hula dancing and Chase Utley wakes up with a tarantula on his chest. From Todd Zolecki: Freddy Galvis, who was a lock to the make the Opening Day roster as a utility infielder, is in the hospital with a staph infection. He…

  11. No one is buying Ryne Sandberg’s claim that benching Rollins wasn’t about sending a message

    Mar 14, 2014, 11:12 AM EDT

    ryne sandberg phillies getty

    A couple days after the Ryne Sandberg-Jimmy Rollins foofaraw broke, Ryne Sandberg is still insisting that benching Rollins for a couple of days is not a disciplinary thing or about him sending a message. People in the know aren’t buying that. Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com is one. He wrote last night that the timing was…

  12. Jimmy Rollins on Ryne Sandberg: “Everyone is allowed to have their opinion. That doesn’t make it right.”

    Mar 13, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT

    Jimmy Rollins

    Phillies spring training as off to a spectacular start. The offense is pretty awful. Pitchers are getting hurt. Jimmy Rollins is having one of his occasional spats with his manager about his perceived effort. Rollins, despite being healthy, has been out of the lineup for three straight days, with Freddy Galvis taking his place. When…

  13. Ryne Sandberg sounds frustrated with Jimmy Rollins

    Mar 12, 2014, 7:38 PM EDT

    ryne sandberg phillies getty

    Freddy Galvis started at shortstop over Jimmy Rollins in Wednesday’s Grapefruit League game at the Orioles’ spring training complex in Sarasota, Florida and Galvis will be getting the start again in Thursday’s home game versus the Yankees. Rollins is considered to be fully healthy and the Phillies typically play all of their projected starters in…

  14. Phillies could get creative to find room for Darin Ruf on the roster

    Feb 8, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    By weighted on-base average (wOBA), Darin Ruf (.354) out-hit every Phillie except Chase Utley (.356). PECOTA, the projection system found at Baseball Prospectus, projects Ruf to be more valuable than All-Star Domonic Brown in 2014. And yet, most are expecting Ruf to start the season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. It makes logical sense. The Phillies’…

  15. Post, Daily News report on an A-Rod plot to “retire” to avoid Biogenesis discipline

    Jun 27, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    This feels like a game of telephone. Or a half-baked plot being floated. Whatever you want to call it, it seems off for a couple of reasons. The upshot: The New York Daily News has a report that A-Rod is rushing to get back to rehab games so that, once he plays in game action,…

  16. Brewers win on horrendous call by umpire Mike Estabrook

    Jun 1, 2013, 7:17 PM EDT

    Brewers @ Phillies June 1 2013

    The Brewers defeated the Phillies today 4-3, thanks in large part to a horrendous call by second base umpire Mike Estabrook in the bottom of the ninth inning. Down 4-2 initially, Freddy Galvis homered to lead off the ninth against Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez. Pinch-hitter Jimmy Rollins, who was not in the lineup due to…

  17. Chase Utley headed to disabled list with mild oblique strain

    May 23, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    Chase Utley AP

    After Chase Utley was scratched from the lineup earlier this week due to a “burning sensation” in his rib cage, it appeared unlikely that he would be able to avoid an extended absence, so it comes as no surprise that the Phillies are placing him the 15-day disabled list. Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that…

  18. Chase Utley is getting an MRI exam after “burning sensation” in rib cage

    May 22, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    utley ap

    Chase Utley was scratched from last night’s game with pain in his right side and Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that the Phillies second baseman is getting an MRI exam. Utley complained of a burning sensation in his rib cage and Salisbury speculates that it might be an oblique strain, which would almost certainly require…

  19. Chase Utley scratched from Phillies’ lineup with pain in side

    May 21, 2013, 7:27 PM EDT

    utley getty

    From Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com comes word that the Phillies have scratched second baseman Chase Utley from Tuesday’s game against the Marlins because of pain in his right side. The Phillies aren’t giving out many details, only saying that Utley will be reevaluated by team doctors on Wednesday. He apparently felt the discomfort while taking pregame batting…

  20. Aroldis Chapman allegedly ate 18 pastries before Sunday’s game

    May 21, 2013, 9:46 AM EDT

    pastry

    I heard someone mention this yesterday but thought they were joking. Andy Martino of the Daily News, however, quotes Phillies broadcaster Rickie Ricardo, who claims that Aroldis Chapman ate 18 cream cheese-guava pastries before Sunday’s game. The game in which he blew the save, giving up a walkoff homer to Freddy Galvis: “Could you imagine cream…

  21. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 20, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    Freddy Galvis

    Phillies 3, Reds 2: Aroldis Chapman is usually automatic. But he surrendered back-to-back bombs to the murderers row that is Erik Kratz and Freddy Galvis as the Philly walked off Cincinnati. Heck, the inning started with Chapman walking Delmon Young on four straight pitches, so you know he wasn’t on it yesterday. And Cliff Lee…

  22. Phillies use wacky ninth inning to defeat Aroldis Chapman, Reds

    May 19, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    chapman getty

    The ninth inning of today’s Reds-Phillies series finale was full of statistical improbabilities. First, Delmon Young drew a four-pitch walk (yes, Delmon Young walked) against Aroldis Chapman. He was immediately replaced by pitcher and pinch-runner Cliff Lee. With Erik Kratz at the plate battling Chapman in a 2-2 count, the lefty reliever picked Lee off…

  23. Yuniesky Betancourt could soon be yours, 29 other baseball teams

    Mar 22, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    Yuniesky Betancourt

    The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Yuniesky Betancourt will ask for his release this weekend if he’s not added to the Phillies’ 25-man roster.  Which he may very well not be given that Kevin Frandsen and Freddy Galvis are already around. Thing is, Betancourt has had a heck of a spring. He’s hitting .439 with a .957 OPS. No,…

  24. The Cardinals are interested in Yuniesky Betancourt

    Mar 17, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Kansas City Royals

    Shortstop Rafael Furcal will miss the entire 2013 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, leaving the Cardinals in a bit of a pickle. Pete Kozma and Ronny Cedeno are next in line, but the Cardinals are looking for a more established player from outside the organization. That player just might be Yuniesky Betancourt, reports Nick…
