  1. Three Astros players suspended for drugs

    A little early with these for a Friday. MLB must be getting out of town for a long weekend someplace. That’s nice. Not so nice for these three Astros farm hands, however: Shortstop Jose Fernandez, first baseman Michael Martinez and outfielder D’andre Toney have each been suspended for 50 games without pay after testing positive…

  2. Plays of the Day: Roger Bernadina makes a pair of nifty grabs in Phillies victory

    Roger Bernadina

    Roger Bernadina was very supportive of his pitching staff today, making a pair of impressive catches to help keep the Diamondback offense at bay. The athleticism is made all the more impressive considering that this afternoon’s game started just 11 hours after last night’s knock-down, drag-out, 18-inning affair ended. The first great grab occurred In…

  3. Dodgers’ 10-game winning streak snapped on pair of Hanley Ramirez errors

    New York Yankees v Los Angeles Dodgers

    When the Dodgers entered Philadelphia to open up a three-game set against the Phillies, the two teams were on wildly divergent paths. The Phillies had lost 19 of 24 games since the All-Star break while the Dodgers had won 23 of 26. In the first two games of the Phillies, they did exactly as they…

    Chase Utley said yesterday’s game at Double-A “went really well” and the Phillies apparently believed him, activating the second baseman from the disabled list just two days into a minor-league rehab assignment. Utley went 0-for-9 at Double-A after spending a month on the DL with an oblique injury, so it’s certainly a hastened return timetable.…

  5. Phillies lose three out of four to woeful Astros

    So much for the Phillies’ big surge. The Philadelphia bullpen blew a 4-3 lead Sunday in a 7-6 loss to Astros, giving Houston a rare series win. Antonio Bastardo took the loss in relief of Roy Halladay, though the blame more squarely rests on the broad shoulders of rookie Phillippe Aumont. The Astros scored four…

  6. Freddy Galvis hits the disabled list

    Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    Another Philly infielder goes down: Freddy Galvis has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain. He sustained the injury while batting last night.  The Phillies have called up Michael Martinez from Leigh Valley to take his place on the roster, though Mike Fontenot is likely to see most of the playing…

  7. Sore elbow sends Phillies starter Vance Worley to DL

    Vance Worley

    Yesterday the Phillies announced that Vance Worley wouldn’t be making his scheduled start today because of a sore elbow and now they’ve placed him on the disabled list with inflammation. Kyle Kendrick will step into Worley’s rotation spot beginning tonight versus the Cubs and the Phillies called up left-handed reliever Joe Savery to take his…

  8. The Phillies infielders are dropping like flies

    Phillies Astros Baseball

    The Phillies are already missing 3/4 of their infield due to injuries.  Now it looks like the carnage is extending to the backup infielders too:  Michael Martinez has a broken bone in his foot. Freddy Galvis is suddenly the starting second baseman, so he’s not a bench infield option, which means that the Phillies are…

  9. Running down the rosters: Philadelphia Phillies

    Feb 27, 2012, 7:05 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay

    The Phillies still look like the class of the NL, but while their win totals have increased five years running, it hasn’t resulted in playoff success the last couple of years. Rotation Roy Halladay – R Cliff Lee – L Cole Hamels – L Vance Worley – R Joe Blanton – R Bullpen Jonathan Papelbon…
