Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Saturday 22 June 2013 at 12:45 pm

The Phillies have placed 34-year old righty reliever Mike Adams on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20th, due to bicep tendinitis.  Adams has pitched in 28 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 1-4 with a 3.96 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  Adams has given up 23 hits and 11 walks while whiffing 23 batters in his first 25 innings so far this year.  The Phillies hope that Adams returns soon as the pen is starting to thin out talent wise.

UPDATE:  (6/25/2013) – Mike Adams has two tears in his right labrum and a tear in his rotator cuff.  He is done for the 2013 season.

The Philadelphia Phillies DFA Michael Martinez

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Saturday 22 June 2013 at 12:42 pm

The Phillies have designated 30-year old switch-hitting infielder Michael Martinez for assignment.  Martinez played in 6 games for the Phillies this year and he was 0 for 4 (.000 avg, .000 OPS) with 1 run scored.  He played in 139 games in his three years with the Phillies and he was 61 of 328 (.186 avg, .506 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 5 homers, 31 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Martinez will probably clear waivers and accept an outright assignment to AAA, because infielders that flat out can’t hit are not big time commodities on the open market.

UPDATE:  (6/24/2013) – Michael Martinez has cleared waivers and he has been outrighted to AAA.

36-year old righty swinging 3B Michael Young is starting to heat up with the bat for the Phillies so far in June.  He has played in 16 games so far this month and he is 24 of 68 (.353 avg, .862 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 1 homer, 6 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He has now played in 67 games overall this year and he is 70 for 246 (.285 avg, .745 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 3 homers, 17 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  The Phillies need all of the help that they can get offensively, so they need Young to keep hitting the ball well moving forward.
