The Philadelphia Phillies place Danys Baez on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Friday 27 August 2010 at 1:58 pm

The Phillies have placed 32-year old righty reliever Danys Baez on the 15-day disabled list with back spasms. Baez has pitched in 45 games (0 starts) for the Phillies this year and he is 3-3 with a 5.14 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP. He has given up 49 hits while walking 21 batters in only 42 innings this year so Baez has been a mess. The Phillies have recalled 24-year old lefty reliever Antonio Bastardo to replace Baez in the bullpen. Bastardo has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Phillies already this year and he is 0-0 with a 5.54 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.

Roy Halladay has been awesome for the Philadelphia Phillies this year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 27 August 2010 at 12:05 pm

33-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay has pitched just like the Phillies thought he would this year. Halladay has started 27 games for the Phillies this year and he is 16-9 with a 2.22 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. He has given up 187 hits in 207 innings pitched this year and he has only walked 25 batters so you better be ready to swing when he’s on the mound. The most important thing for the Phillies’ pitching staff as a whole is that Halladay is a workhorse which saves the bullpen every fifth day. He has completed 8 games this season including three shutouts. He has been the best pitcher in the National League this season but he might not win the Cy Young Award due to a lack of run support which is one thing I never thought I would say this year because of the Phillies’ offense.

The Philadelphia Phillies ink Nate Robertson

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Wednesday 25 August 2010 at 8:30 am

The Phillies have signed 32-year old lefty starting pitcher Nate Robertson to a minor league deal. He pitched in 19 games (18 starts) earlier this season for the Marlins and he was 6-8 with a 5.47 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. Robertson has now pitched in 221 games (187 starts) in his 9 years in the majors and he is 57-77 with 1 save, a 4.97 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. It never hurts to bring in a guy like Robertson to help the team in September.

The Philadelphia Phillies activate Ryan Howard off the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Monday 23 August 2010 at 3:22 pm

The Phillies have activated starting 1B Ryan Howard off the disabled list. He has played in 106 games for the Phillies this year and he is 121 of 415 (.292 avg, .877 OPS) with 65 runs scored, 23 homers and 82 RBIs. The Phillies have placed 34-year old 1B/OF Ross Gload on the D.L. with a groin injury. Gload has played in 77 games for the Phillies this year and he is 31 of 111 (.279 avg, .820 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 6 homers, 21 RBIs and 1 stolen base. While the Phillies will miss Gload’s production off the bench they will likely start to move up the standings with all of the starting lineup healthy and ready to rock

The Philadelphia Phillies are happy with the new guys

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Wednesday 18 August 2010 at 5:49 pm

Righty starting pitcher Roy Oswalt has been very solid for the Phillies. In four starts for the Phillies, Oswalt is 2-1 with a 3.08 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. The Phillies are built to go a long way in the post season with Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt at the top of the starting rotation. 1B Mike Sweeney has played in 10 games for the Phillies so far and he is 7 of 26 (.269 avg, .614 OPS) with 6 runs scored and 1 RBI. While Sweeney has lacked power so far he is getting some key hits for the Phillies.

Ross Gload is swinging a good bat for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 18 August 2010 at 5:47 pm

34-year old lefty swinging 1B/OF Ross Gload is hurting a little bit right now but he is swinging a good stick for the Phillies this year. Gload has played in 76 games for the Phillies this year and he is 31 of 107 (.290 avg, .850 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 6 homers, 21 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Gload goes up to the plate hacking as he has only walked 8 times this year but he also makes a ton of contact as he has only whiffed 8 times this year. It sucks for both Gload and the Phillies that he’s banged up right now because he was getting a lot of P.T. with Ryan Howard out of action.

The Philadelphia Phillies designate Greg Dobbs for assignment

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Tuesday 17 August 2010 at 7:33 pm

The Phillies have designated 32-year old lefty swinging 1B/3B Greg Dobbs for assignment for the second time this year to make room on the roster for Chase Utley. Dobbs played in 76 games for the Phillies this year and he is 27 of 141 (.191 avg, .569 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 4 homers and 14 RBIs. Dobbs has played in 443 games in his four years with the Phillies and he is 221 of 845 (.262 avg, .738 OPS) with 101 runs scored, 28 homers, 129 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. I think Dobbs will accept a minor league assignment if he clears waivers because the Phillies would likely call him right back up when rosters expand September 1st.

Danys Baez has been pretty awful for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2010

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Pitching BP by chinmusic on Wednesday 11 August 2010 at 11:16 am

32-year old righty reliever Danys Baez has been pretty stinky for the Phillies so far this year. He has pitched in 42 games (0 starts) and he is 2-3 with a 5.54 ERA and a 1.74 WHIP. Baez has given up 47 hits (5 homers) and he has walked 21 batters in only 39 innings this year for the Phillies. The Phillies have been using Baez in low pressure situations and he is still stinking it up.

Raul Ibanez has gotten hot at the plate for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Friday 6 August 2010 at 8:53 am

Amid all of the big injuries the Phillies have endured lately…..Raul Ibanez has risen from the ashes. In his last 10 games, Ibanez is 16 of 34 (.471 avg) with 9 runs scored, 2 homers and 8 RBIs. Ibanez is stepping up when the team needs him the most as they have gotten right back into the race despite the injuries. Ibanez has now played in 103 games for the Phillies this year and he is 98 of 357 (.275 avg, .798 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 10 homers, 54 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Phillies need Ibanez to stay hot because he is the best lefty hitter on the team right now with Utley and Howard out of action.

The Philadelphia Phillies DFA Cody Ransom

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Thursday 5 August 2010 at 1:28 pm

The Phillies have designated 34-year old righty swinging infielder Cody Ransom for assignment. Ransom played in 22 games for the Phillies this year and he is 8 of 42 (.190 avg, .578 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 2 homers, 5 RBIs and 1 stolen base. The Phillies needed Ransom’s roster spot for the newly acquired Mike Sweeney. If the Phillies miss Ransom at all they are in big trouble.
