    The Phillies are reeling after Cole Hamels suffered a setback, pushing his 2014 debut into May most likely. They’re thin on starting pitching depth even after adding A.J. Burnett last month. As a result, they have checked in with Ervin Santana according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Or maybe not. Matt Gelb of…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Boston Red Sox

    Not much has gone right for the Phillies in the early going. They are 1-3 in the Grapefruit League thus far, having been disappointed several times already by Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez. Roberto Hernandez wasn’t sharp in his first outing. Jonathan Pettibone has had shoulder problems again. The cherry on top of the sundae,…

    The Phillies’ rotation depth took a hit today, as Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that right-hander Ethan Martin has been shut down for three weeks due to triceps and shoulder capsule strains. Martin left Thursday’s exhibition opener against the Blue Jays due to shoulder soreness. He faced just four batters and was reportedly hitting around…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Detroit Tigers

    The A.J. Burnett signing is sounding more and more important for the Phillies with every piece of pitcher-related news that comes out, it seems. At around the same time the Phillies handed a contract to Burnett, they announced that Cole Hamels wouldn’t be ready for Opening Day due to shoulder tendinitis. Now, according to Jim…

    Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. indicated Friday that he didn’t expect to make any additions prior to spring training, but Todd Zolecki of MLB.com hears that the club is “very much still in the running” to sign free agent right-hander A.J. Burnett. While it’s unclear if the two sides are close to a deal,…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Detroit Tigers

    The Phillies have shut down rookie starter Jonathan Pettibone for another three to six weeks, reports CSN Philly’s John Finger. The right-hander hasn’t started since the end of July due to a strained right shoulder. A recent MRI revealed inflammation in his right rotator cuff, but thankfully there is no structural damage. He will receive…

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Trends don’t get much more clear than this: 2008: Won World Series 2009: Lost World Series 2010: Lost NLCS 2011: Lost NLDS 2012: Missed playoffs Now, that’s not entirely fair: the Phillies had their best records in that span in 2011 and 2010. But Charlie Manuel’s team has dropped off severely since then. In 2012,…

  8. A day after Tigers embarrass Phillies, Phillies embarrass themselves

    Last night, the Tigers outclassed the Phillies en route to an easy 10-0 win. Max Scherzer was on point as he improved to 15-1, and Miguel Cabrera was productive as usual. A typical game for the defending American League champions. This afternoon was an entirely different story, as the Phillies were their own worst enemy.…

    The Phillies took two of three from the first place Braves over the weekend, but Saturday’s loss was a rout and Ruben Amaro did not take at all well to the Phillies smiling and joking around during said rout. Todd Zolecki from MLB.com reports: General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Friday the team needs to…

    Reds 3, Giants 0: Homer Bailey does it again. You can read about all of the important details of his no-hitter here and here. Less mentioned in the aftermath?

  11. Play of the Day: Nolan Arenado makes a nifty snag

    Jun 15, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Nolan Arenado

    Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado made a heck of a play on a Jonathan Pettibone grounder in the second inning of today’s game against the Phillies. Pettibone chopped the ball down the third base line. Arenado, who was playing in and off the line, dove to his right and snagged the ball when it was…
