Four players (Cole Hamels, Domonic Brown, David Buchanan, and Kyle Kendrick) have publicly criticized and/or disrespected Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg this month, but the rookie skipper insists it’s “not a big deal.”
Aug 25, 2014, 11:50 AM EST
For the second week in a row, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg began his Sunday at the ballpark by having a meeting with an unhappy player. This time, actually, it was two players.
Aug 17, 2014, 6:55 PM EST
Kyle Kendrick stormed off the mound following a frustrating sixth inning on Saturday. He apologized for showing up manager Ryne Sandberg.

Cliff Lee is on track to return to the Phillies’ starting rotation on July 21. The veteran left-hander has been out since the middle of May because of a muscle strain in his pitching elbow but could be an attractive name at this year’s trade deadline.

Four shutouts headlined Monday night’s action
Mar 1, 2014, 10:40 AM EST
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…

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,…

The Reds avoided arbitration with starter Mike Leake and relievers Sam LeCure and Alfredo Simon earlier today, but were not able to do so with starter Homer Bailey and flame-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman. As a guest on The C Dot Show earlier, Reds vice president Bob Miller (who handles the arbitration cases for the club)…
Jan 16, 2014, 7:42 PM EST
The Phillies and right-hander Kyle Kendrick have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.675 million contract. The deal includes award bonuses. Kendrick just finished up a two-year, $7.5 million extension and is arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter. The 29-year-old got off to an excellent start last season, but ended up with a…

That’s all I can assume he’s doing here anyway, when he was presumably asked if the Phillies might pursue Matt Garza and Ruben Amaro talked up his incumbent pitcher Kyle Kendrick: Amaro: “Kendrick has 64 wins. You know how many wins Garza has? 67.” — Matt Gelb (@magelb) December 11, 2013 A second possibility:…
Sep 28, 2013, 10:55 PM EST
Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick the second of his two-year, $7.5 million extension signed in February 2012. He’ll be eligible for his fourth and final year of arbitration. Coming off of a disappointing season — he has a 4.70 ERA in 182 innings — there was some speculation that he would be non-tendered, but GM Ruben…
Sep 20, 2013, 9:45 PM EST
The Phillies have shut down Kyle Kendrick for the remainder of the season, reports Chris Branch of the News Journal. Veteran journeyman Zach Miner, who has filled in for Kendrick once already on Wednesday, will take Kendrick’s remaining starts. The Phillies have “TBA” listed for Tuesday’s start against the Marlins. Assuming Miner starts then, he…

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,…

Yesterday, we took a look at what WAR had to say as far as midseason awards winners. Now, I’m making my own choices, starting with the Cy Young Awards. First, let’s get the charts out of the way, here are the top 10 in the AL by ERA and both versions of WAR. ERA 1.…

Kyle Kendrick was hit on the back of the helmet by a pitch while batting yesterday and the Phillies right-hander has been diagnosed with a “mild” concussion. Of course, because so-called “mild” concussions are still brain injuries that label tends not to mean a whole lot, as Justin Maxwell of the Astros proved most recently.…
