    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

    He’s coming off his second shoulder surgery and just this week we learned, in the form of Roy Halladay‘s retirement, just how devastating shoulder surgeries can be. But that’s not stopping as many as eight teams expressing interest in Johan Santana, reports Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York. The Mets, Yankees, Twins, Rays, Orioles, Royals,…

    Roy Halladay‘s shoulder let him down in the end, but not until after one of the best 10-year runs in memory. From 2002-2011, Halladay went 170-75 with a 2.97 ERA and 1,699 strikeouts in 2,194 2/3 innings. He went to eight All-Star Games, won two Cy Young Awards and finished second twice more. During that…

    Three years ago Roy Halladay was arguably the best pitcher in the National League, going 19-6 with a 2.36 ERA while finishing runner-up in the Cy Young voting to Clayton Kershaw after winning the award the previous season. And now, as Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly tweeted, Halladay is retiring at age 36 after struggling…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  6. Justin Verlander’s no-hit bid ends in seventh inning, still holding Athletics scoreless

    Justin Verlander can no longer join an exclusive club with Don Larsen and Roy Halladay, but he’s still on the verge of leading his team to the ALCS. Verlander’s no-hit bit ended with two outs in the seventh inning after Yoenis Cespedes hit a hard grounder past shortstop Jhonny Peralta and into center field. Having…

  7. The Phillies fire pitching coach Rich Dubee

    Sep 30, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Chase Utley, Rich Dubee

    This will solve everything: The Phillies announce that pitching coach Rich Dubee will not return. — Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyCSN) September 30, 2013 Salisbury’s full story is here. I guess when you have a bad season heads roll, and there’s no escaping the fact that the Phillies pitching staff, on the whole, was terrible (it ranked…

  8. Phillies GM Ruben Amaro says he will tender Kyle Kendrick a contract

    Sep 28, 2013, 10:55 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Philadelphia Phillies

    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…

  9. Roy Halladay has had more than arm trouble to worry about

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    We posted about Roy Halladay’s short outing yesterday and how arm fatigue contributed to his low velocity and ineffectiveness. But CSNPhilly.com’s Jim Salisbury updated his Halladay story last night with a pretty ominous note: “Halladay admitted that this has been a “stressful” season. He went on to admit that he’s dealt with more than shoulder…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 2, Cubs 1: And with that the Pirates are going to the playoffs. It’s so strange, though, how even though it’s the franchise that has lost for the past 20 years — even though it’s just the laundry which has been shut out so long — that we sort of passively put all that…

  11. Roy Halladay pulled after three batters due to arm fatigue, done for season

    Roy Halladay Getty

    Roy Halladay has seen better days. According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com, Halladay was pulled in the first inning of his start tonight against the Marlins after facing just three batters. It was the shortest start of his MLB career. Halladay walked two batters in his brief outing and topped out at just 83 mph.…

    Sep 20, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Philadelphia Phillies

    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…

    Sep 18, 2013, 6:18 AM EDT

    Ian Kinsler

    Rangers 7, Rays 1: The Rangers finally snap the skid. Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus homered and drove in three runs each to pull Texas back into a tie with Tampa Bay at the top of the wild card standings. Indians 5, Royals 3: Kansas City took a 3-0 lead into the sixth with the Indians…

  14. Roy Halladay not terribly pleased with the tough Philly media

    Sep 13, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay Getty

    Back when he threw in the mid-90s Roy Halladay got nothing but praise. Now that he’s struggling he’s hearing some criticism. He’s not terribly pleased with that. From Mike Narducci at Philly.com: “Philly is not an easy place to do that, you guys are pretty tough,” he said to the assembled reporters. “You have to…

  15. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 13, 2013, 7:23 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Chicago White Sox

    Indians 14, White Sox 3: Ryan Raburn went 3 for 3 with a homer and five RBI. The Tribe put up a seven spot in the fifth inning in which the first nine batters who came to the plate reached. They keep pace with the Rays, who also won, and remain one and a half games…

  16. Roy Halladay scratched with flu-like symptoms

    Sep 10, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    Roy Halladay, coming off the best of his three starts since returning from shoulder surgery, was scratched from his scheduled Wednesday outing with flu-like symptoms. Tyler Cloyd will pitch in his place against the Padres. Halladay allowed one run in six innings last time out against the Nationals, giving him a 4.24 ERA in three…

  17. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 5, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 20, Tigers 4: Well, that was something. Eight homers in all for the Red Sox. Two from David Ortiz, who picked up his 2,000th career hit as well. Injury added to insult: Jose Iglesias left the game with shin splints. Cardinals 5, Reds 4: A sixteen inning affair in which Matt Adams homered…

  18. Roy Halladay cheered up Matt Harvey

    Aug 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    roy halladay long getty

    The biggest takeaway from this article is that it was awful cool of Roy Halladay to take the time to give Matt Harvey a pep talk about his recent injury. About having one of the greatest of his generation tell a kid not to worry, buck up and everything will be OK. That’s class, right…

    David Nied

    Rockies 4, Marlins 3: The Rockies won this game but the Marlins took the 1993 Expansion Cup for this season, closing out the year with a 4-3 record against Colorado. What — you don’t keep track of the 1993 Expansion Cup? There’s a great ceremony at the end of the series each year in which either…

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

    Aug 25, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    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…

  21. Roy Halladay allows two runs over six innings in first major league start since early May

    Aug 25, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    halladay pitching getty

    Veteran right-hander Roy Halladay was shaky in his two minor league rehab starts and had to be rushed to Citizens Bank Park on Sunday morning for his first major league outing in almost four months. So his performance was pretty good all things considered. Brought back from the 60-day disabled list in an emergency move following…

  22. Phillies activate Roy Halladay for Sunday start

    Aug 25, 2013, 9:38 AM EDT

    halladay phillies getty

    Roy Halladay was all set to make his third minor league rehab start at Double-A Reading, but the Phillies’ scheduled starter for Sunday’s series finale against the Diamondbacks had to pitch in relief in Saturday night’s 18-inning marathon loss so “Doc” is back in the bigs in a sudden change of course. CSNPhilly.com’s Jim Salisbury…

    Aug 24, 2013, 9:32 AM EDT

    Adam Wainwright Getty

    The Cardinals were without closer Edward Mujica last night due to a nagging back issue, but Adam Wainwright rendered that moot by tossing his major league-leading fifth complete game in a 3-1 win over the Braves at Busch Stadium. He now leads the National League with 15 victories. Wainwright held the Braves to six singles…

  24. Phillies shut down Jonathan Pettibone for another three to six weeks

    Aug 23, 2013, 11:50 PM EDT

    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…

  25. Roy Halladay will make next rehab start at Double-A

    Aug 21, 2013, 10:14 PM EDT

    roy halladay getty

    Veteran right-hander Roy Halladay looked shaky in a rehab start Tuesday night with Low-A Lakewood, yielding seven hits and three walks in six sluggish innings while averaging just 87 mph with his fastball. But the Phillies are going to bump him up a level anyway and let him continue his minor league rehab assignment this…
