    Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got something to say, but nothing comes out when they move their lips, just a bunch of gibberish, and utility guys act like they forgot about Bryce.

    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.

    This is one of the best plays you’ll ever see that didn’t actually result in any outs.

  8. Kevin Frandsen leaves the Phillies for the Nationals

    Kevin Frandsen AP

    OK, so this probably isn’t big enough news to add any fuel to the rivalry, but infielder Kevin Frandsen is signing with the Nationals after declining an assignment to the minors from the Phillies yesterday. Frandsen forfeited a $900,000 salary by turning down the Phillies’ attempt to move him to Triple-A after taking him off…

    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…

  10. 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’…

    Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that the Phillies and infielder Kevin Frandsen have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $900,000 contract. The deal includes performance bonuses. Frandsen was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter. The 31-year-old made a salary of $850,000 this past season while hitting .234/.296/.341 with five home runs and 26…

    J.J. Putz Getty

    Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz stuck out his pitching hand in an attempt to field Phillies utility infielder Kevin Frandsen‘s grounder in the bottom of the seventh inning tonight. The ball ricoheted off of Putz’s hand to shortstop Cliff Pennington, who threw to first to retire Frandsen and end the inning. Putz retired the side in…

  13. Phillies walk off for the third consecutive game

    Aug 23, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Philadelphia Phillies

    The Phillies, perhaps coincidentally, have started to play better since firing long-time manager Charlie Manuel and replacing him with Ryne Sandberg. With tonight’s walk-off victory, their third consecutive walk-off, they have won five of their last six games. On Wednesday and Thursday, the Phillies victimized Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt, who we later found out was…

  14. 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,…

  15. The Phillies have “some interest” in Michael Young

    Dec 3, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    Michael Young

    As of now, the Phillies’ top internal options for third base include Kevin Frandsen and Freddy Galvis, so general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. is considering alternatives in the free agent and trade markets. According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, the Phillies have “some interest” in a trade in a possible trade with the Rangers for…

  17. Phillies decline mutual option on Placido Polanco

    An expected move, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports that the Phillies have declined their half of Placido Polanco‘s $5.5 million mutual option for 2013. Polanco will receive a $1 million buyout and will become a free agent. This was a pretty easy call for the Fightins, as the 37-year-old was limited to…

  18. Jeremy Hefner can’t get an out against the Phillies

    Sep 20, 2012, 7:44 PM EDT

    Jeremy Hefner, Terry Collins

    The Mets’ Jeremy Hefner was pulled from his start Thursday against the Phillies after failing to retire any of the seven batters he faced.

  19. Phillies disabled list: Carlos Ruiz off, Placido Polanco on

    Sep 7, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    Carlos Ruiz AP

    Philadelphia activated Carlos Ruiz from the disabled list after the All-Star catcher missed the past five weeks with plantar fasciitis in his left foot, which is a surprise considering there was some recent talk about the Phillies simply shutting him down the season. Not as surprising is the Phillies putting Placido Polanco on the disabled list,…

  20. Chipper Jones walks off with bomb off Jonathan Papelbon

    Sep 2, 2012, 8:45 PM EDT

    Chipper Jones walkoff

    Chipper Jones has no intention of going out with a whimper. Atlanta’s future Hall of Fame third baseman launched a three-run homer off Jonathan Papelbon with two outs in the bottom of the ninth as the Braves edged the Phillies 8-7 on Sunday. The Braves trailed 7-3 entering the bottom of the ninth before getting…

  21. Phillies bench Placido Polanco for Kevin Frandsen

    Aug 28, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Placido Polanco

    In case it wasn’t already clear, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel basically admitted today that Placido Polanco has simply been benched. Polanco is out of the lineup tonight for the fifth straight game in favor of 30-year-old journeyman Kevin Frandsen, and when asked about the situation Manuel told Todd Zolecki of MLB.com that it’s not about…

    Philadelphia activated Placido Polanco from the disabled list after the third baseman missed the past four weeks with a back injury. Polanco struggled before being shut down, hitting just .255 with a .628 OPS in 82 games at age 36, and the Phillies seem likely to choose a $1 million buyout over his $5.5 million…
