Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 9 August 2016 at 3:54 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 22-year old righty starting pitcher Zach Eflin on the 15-day disabled list due to patellar tendinopathy in both knees.  He has really had a rough time in August, so it’s possible that he has been pitching hurt for a while.  In his 2 starts in August, Eflin was 0-1 with a 14.63 ERA and a 2.25 WHIP.  He came into this season as the Phillies’ #13 prospect according to Baseball America.  He has now pitched in 11 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year (in his first taste of the show) and he is 2-5 with a 5.54 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  He has given up 67 hits (12 homers) and 17 walks while whiffing 31 batters in his first 63 1/3 innings for the Phillies this year.  On a bright note, he already has two complete games with one of them being a shutout!

UPDATE:  (8/20/2016) – Zach Eflin has underwent season ending surgery on his knee.

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 23-year old righty starting pitcher Aaron Nola on the 15-day disabled list due to a sprained right elbow.  Nola has pitched in 20 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 6-9 with a 4.78 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP.  He has given up 116 hits and 29 walks while whiffing 121 batters in his 111 innings pitched this year.  He has now pitched in 33 games (all starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 12-11 with a 4.29 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP.  The Phillies might be smart to just shut Nola down for the year as he is a big part of their future plans.

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 24-year old righty starting pitcher Vincent Velasquez on the 15-day disabled list due to a right biceps strain.  Velasquez has pitched in 12 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 5-2 with a 3.65 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.  He has given up 56 hits and 22 walks while whiffing 73 batters in his first 61 2/3 innings so far this year, which are pretty impressive numbers.  Velasquez started this season really strongly, starting four games in April in which he was 3-1 with a 1.78 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP.  But, since May 1st, he has struggled a bit.  He has started 8 games since May 1st, and he is 2-1 with a 4.95 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP.  I have to think that he has been hurting for a little bit and tried to fight through it.  The Phillies were smart to shut him down for at least a couple of weeks, as he is very important to their future!
