The Philadelphia Phillies really don’t need much help heading near the trade deadline

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, If I Were the GM by chinmusic on Wednesday 15 June 2011 at 10:33 am

The Phillies, barring injuries, will likely be only looking to make minor deals to help the bench as the trade deadline looms. I would think that guys like Jorge Cantu, Conor Jackson, Jerry Hairston, Adam Kennedy, Jeff Keppinger, Aaron Miles and Jamey Carroll would be infielders that might appeal to the Phillies. Matt Diaz, Chris Denorfia, Mitch Maier, Felix Pie, Scott Hairston or Ryan Sweeney would also be of some interest to the Phillies. The Phillies won’t have to give up much to get any of these players from their current teams. All of those players mentioned are going to be available for the right price and the Phillies should be in on all of them next month.

Ronnie Belliard of the Philadelphia Phillies retires from baseball

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 15 June 2011 at 10:24 am

36-year old righty swinging 2B Ronnie Belliard has decided to call it a career. Belliard played in 53 games in AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 50 for 199 (.251 avg, .657 OPS) with 27 runs scored, 3 homers, 23 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Belliard played in 1,484 games in his 13 years in the major leagues and he was 1,377 of 5,045 (.273 avg, .753 OPS) with 685 runs scored, 114 homers, 601 RBIs and 43 stolen bases. The Phillies won’t miss Belliard as they weren’t about to call him up any time soon.

Domonic Brown is cooling off for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Monday 13 June 2011 at 2:12 pm

23-year old lefty swinging RF Domonic Brown is cooling off after a hot start to the season. In his last 11 games, Brown is 5 for 35 (.143 avg, .507 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 homer, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. He has played in 20 games overall this year and he is 16 for 67 (.239 avg, .719 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 2 homers, 9 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The Phillies were hoping that Brown would help replace the offense that the Phillies lost when Jayson Werth signed with the Nationals but that just hasn’t worked out so far this year.

The Philadelphia Phillies are very happy with catcher Sebastian Valle

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Tuesday 7 June 2011 at 8:45 am

20-year old righty swinging catcher Sebastian Valle came into this season as the Phillies’ #6 prospect according to Baseball America. Valle has played in 37 games in A-ball so far this year and he is 52 for 149 (.349 avg, .865 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 3 homers and 19 RBIs. The amazing thing about Valle is the .349 batting average as he has only walked 2 times so far this year! Valle has now played in 351 games in his first five years in the minors and he is 357 for 1,288 (.277 avg, .767 OPS) with 169 runs scored, 30 homers, 191 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Valle, if all goes well, will replace Carlos Ruiz in a few years as the Phillies’ starting catcher.

Cliff Lee’s record isn’t indicitive of how well he’s pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Sunday 5 June 2011 at 3:59 pm

Lefty starting pitcher Cliff Lee’s record is only 4-5 this year, but he hasn’t pitched too bad. He has pitched in 12 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he has a 3.94 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. Lee has given up 82 hits in his first 80 innings so far this year, but he has also whiffed 90 batters while only walking 19 of them. You have to think that Lee is going to start getting a lot of wins soon if he keeps pitching like he is so far this year.

The Philadelphia Phillies have signed Terry Evans

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 2 June 2011 at 7:26 am

The Phillies have signed 29-year old righty swinging outfielder Terry Evans to a minor league deal. Evans played in 39 games in AAA-ball earlier this year for the Giants and he was 22 for 95 (.232 avg, .648 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 1 homer, 11 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Evans last played in the majors last year for the Angels. Evans has played in 20 games in parts of three years in the majors and he is 3 for 19 (.158 avg, .554 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs. The Phillies will use Evans as depth in AAA, but if he gets off to a good start, they might call him up and give him a chance off the bench.

The Philadelphia Phillies lose Drew Naylor for the season

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 2 June 2011 at 7:16 am

The Phillies have lost 25-year old righty starting pitcher Drew Naylor for the season as he underwent Tommy John Surgery last Tuesday. Naylor hasn’t pitched at all this year. He pitched in 27 games (26 starts) in AA-ball last year and he was 12-10 with a 4.63 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. Naylor has pitched in 106 games (94 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 38-40 with 1 save, a 4.12 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. This is a bad break for Naylor who was getting closer to Philly before this major injury.

UPDATE: (9/17/2011) - The Phillies have designated Drew Naylor for assignment.

UPDATE: (9/26/2011) - The Phillies have released Drew Naylor.
