Werth has played in 126 games for the Phillies so far this season and he is 124 for 458 (.271 avg, .893 OPS) with 81 runs scored, 29 homers, 79 RBIs and 13 stolen bases.

31-year old lefty starting pitcher Cliff Lee is proving to be everything the Phillies wanted and much more. He has started 6 games for the Phillies and he is 5-1 with a 1.80 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP. He has worked 45 innings for the Phillies allowing only 34 hits while whiffing 44 batters and only walking 5 for the Phillies. Lee has been a workhorse for the Phillies as he has two complete games for them already. Lee has been very aggressive in the strike zone for the Phillies and the Indians this season and the result will be a lot of wins the rest of the season and in the future.

The Phillies have released veteran utility man Pablo Ozuna. Ozuna was playing in AAA ball when he was suspended for 50 games for using performance enhancing drugs. Ozuna played in 91 games in AAA-ball this season and he was 55 for 187 (.294 avg, .738 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 15 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Ozuna screwed himself by using those drugs as the Phillies were likely to call him up in September.

The Philadelphia Phillies did good to not move Kyle Drabek in any trades

The Philadelphia Phillies resisted trading 21-year old righty starting pitcher Kyle Drabek and that’s how they wound up with Cliff Lee instead of Roy Halladay. But, in a couple of years that will look like a master stroke by the Phillies. Drabek was the Phillies’ #5 rated prospect coming into this season according to Baseball America and he’s showing why. Drabek has pitched in 21 games (19 starts) in A+AA ball this season and he is 11-2 with a 2.99 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. Drabek has only allowed 117 hits in 135 1/3 innings this season while whiffing 127 batters which shows what kind of stuff he has. Drabek also has good blood lines as his dad was Doug Drabek. Kyle’s dad pitched 13 seasons in the major leagues appearing in 398 games (387 starts) in which he was 155-134 with a 3.73 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. Doug Drabek was also the Cy Young Award winner in the 1990 season with the Pittsburgh Pirates. During the 1990 season, Sr. Drabek started 33 games in which he was 22-6 with a 2.76 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. The Phillies hope that Kyle Drabek learns some tricks from his dad who was a really solid major league starting pitcher.
