Jayson Werth has been placed on the D.L. by the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Saturday 24 May 2008 at 3:10 pm

The Phillies have placed outfielder Jayson Werth on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right abdominal muscle. He has played in 40 games this season for the Phillies and he is 34 for 131 (.260 avg, .857 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 9 homers, 26 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. The Phillies have called up outfielder T.J. Bohn to replace Werth on the roster. Bohn has played in 7 games for the Phillies this season and he is 1 for 3 (.333 avg) with 1 run scored and 2 RBIs. The Phillies will miss Werth’s bat as he was off to a great start this season.

Cole Hamels has been outstanding this season for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Saturday 24 May 2008 at 3:07 pm

Cole Hamels is proving that last season was just the beginning of a very productive career. He has started 10 games this season for the Phillies and he is 5-3 with a 2.61 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. He has only allowed 53 hits while striking out 65 batters in 72.1 innings which shows what kind of stuff he has. Hamels will be a contender for the Cy Young Award as long as he can stay healthy with the Phillies’ offense backing him up.

The Philadelphia Phillies acquire lefty reliever Stephen Randolph from the Astros

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Thursday 8 May 2008 at 5:04 pm

The Phillies have acquired 34-year old lefty reliever Stephen Randolph from the Astros for a player to be named later. Randolph will likely be in AAA for the Phillies as an insurance policy. Randolph has pitched in 11 games in AAA this season and he is 0-1 with 2 saves, a 1.23 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. He has whiffed 21 batters but he has walked 11 batters in only 14.2 innings. He has pitched in 109 games (6 starts) in his major league career and he is 10-7 with a 5.52 ERA and a 1.81 WHIP. The thing that has held Randolph back in his major league career is walks as he has walked 136 batters in 155 career innings in the show.

Carlos Carrasco is on the fast track to the Philadelphia Phillies’ starting rotation

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 8 May 2008 at 8:49 am

21-year old righty starter Carlos Carrasco is the #1 rated prospect in the Phillies’ system according to Baseball America’s Prospect Handbook and he could be in Philly soon. Carrasco has started 6 games in AA-ball so far this season and he is 3-2 with a 3.25 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. He also has whiffed 39 batters in only 36 innings. If he keeps pitching like he is now he will likely make it to Philly before September.

Brad Lidge has been nails at the end of games for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 5 May 2008 at 11:03 pm

New closer Brad Lidge has been flawless so far this season. He has pitched in 15 games this season for the Phillies and he is 1-0 with 7 saves, a 0.00 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP. Lidge has also whiffed 15 batters in only 13 innings this season which shows that his stuff is coming back. If Lidge can keep focused and aggressive this season the Phillies are going to have a nice season again in 2008.

Ryan Howard is in a funk with the bat for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Monday 5 May 2008 at 11:01 pm

Ryan Howard is off to another slow start this season for the Phillies. Howard has played in 32 games this season and he is 19 for 114 (.167 avg, .645 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 6 homers and 14 RBIs. Howard has also whiffed an amazing 45 times this season. It’s way to early to panic as Howard got off to a very slow start last season as well. When Howard gets going the Phillies are going to really score a ton of runs.

Chase Utley & Pat Burrell are carrying the Philadelphia Phillies’ offense

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Monday 5 May 2008 at 10:58 pm

Chase Utley and Pat Burrell are both off to great starts to the 2008 season. Utley is the best player on the Planet Earth right now. He has played in 32 games for the Phillies and he is 45 for 126 (.357 avg, 1.194 OPS) with 28 runs scored, 13 homers and 26 RBIs. Almost as impressive as Utley’s start is how well Pat Burrell has played this season. Burrell has played in 32 games this season for the Phillies and he is 35 for 106 (.330 avg, 1.148 OPS) with 20 runs scored, 9 homers and 30 RBIs. Burrell has been much more selective this season as he has walked 26 times already this season which explains his bump in batting average.
