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 Phillies have placed 27-year old lefty reliever Jeremy Horst on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left elbow.  Horst has pitched in 28 games (0 starts) so far this year for the Phillies and he is 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA and a 1.81 WHIP.  Horst has had a rough time for the Phillies so far in 2013.  He has now pitched in 60 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 2-2 with a 3.45 ER and a 1.43 WHIP.  The Phillies hope that Horst comes off the D.L. pitching like he did in 2012.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 9 June 2013 at 9:19 am

The Phillies have placed 32-year old righty swinging catcher Erik Kratz on the 15-day disabled list due to a left knee injury.  Kratz has played in 43 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 32 of 140 (.229 avg, .726 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 8 homers and 22 RBIs.  With Carlos Ruiz also out of action, 33-year old righty swinging Humberto Quintero becomes the Phillies’ starting catcher.  He has played in 11 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 7 for 29 (.241 avg, .635 OPS) with 2 RBIs.  28-year old lefty swinging Steven Lerud has been summoned from AAA-ball to serve as Quintero’s backup until Ruiz or Kratz return to action.  Lerud has played in 31 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 21 of 95 (.221 avg, .699 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 2 homers, 14 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He got his first taste of the majors for the Phillies in 2012, appearing in 3 games in which he was 2 for 10 (.200 avg, .400 OPS) with 1 run scored.  The Phillies should be o.k. defensively with Quintero and Lerud behind the plate, but they are going to lose a lot offensively.

The Philadelphia Phillies place Chase Utley on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 24 May 2013 at 7:25 am

The Phillies have placed 34-year old lefty swinging 2B Chase Utley on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21st, due to a mild oblique strain.  He could miss anywhere from 2-4 weeks.  Utley has played in 44 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 43 of 158 (.272 avg, .814 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 7 homers, 25 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  23-year old switch-hitting Freddy Galvis will replace Utley in the starting lineup.  Galvis has played in 27 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 19 for 69 (.275 avg, .783 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 3 homers, 8 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  The Phillies have called up 30-year old switch-hitting infielder Michael Martinez to replace Utley on the roster and Galvis off the bench.  Martinez has played in 32 games in AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he is 26 for 109 (.239 avg, .590 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 0 homers, 13 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  Martinez has played in 133 games in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 61 for 324 (.188 avg, .512 OPS) with 35 runs scored, 5 homers, 31 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  The Phillies hope that Utley only misses a couple of weeks, because he is not an easy player to try to replace.  The Phillies are going to miss his bat.

The Phillies have placed 34-year old righty reliever Mike Adams on the 15-day disabled list due to a right back strain.  Adams has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 1-3 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  Adams has now pitched in 375 games (0 starts) in his first 9 years in the majors and he is 19-18 with 4 saves, a 2.31 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP.  This is a big blow to the Phillies’ bullpen, as Adams is a really solid set-up man.

The Philadelphia Phillies lose Carlos Ruiz for the next 3-4 weeks

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Wednesday 22 May 2013 at 3:19 pm

The Phillies have placed starting catcher Carlos Ruiz on the 15-day disabled list and he is going to miss the next 3-4 weeks due to a strained right hamstring.  Ruiz has played in 16 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 12 for 51 (.235 avg, 560 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 0 homers, 2 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Erik Kratz will take over as the Phillies’ starting catcher while Ruiz is out of action.  Kratz has played in 28 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 19 for 89 (.213 avg, .605 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 3 homers and 9 RBIs.  The Phillies have called up Humberto Quintero to replace Ruiz on the roster and he will back up Kratz behind the plate.  Quintero has played in 7 games for the Phillies earlier this year and he was 5 for 20 (.250 avg, .636 OPS) with 0 runs scored, 0 homers and 2 RBIs.

The Philadelphia Phillies place Roy Halladay on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Monday 6 May 2013 at 3:58 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 35-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay on the 15-day disabled list due to a right shoulder injury.  Halladay has pitched in 7 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 2-4 with a 8.65 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP.  Halladay has given up 33 hits (9 homers) and he has walked 17 batters and whiffed 35 of them in his first 34 1/3 innings this year as he is getting hit hard.  Halladay looks like he’s running out of gas in his tank.  In his first two years with the Phillies, he started 65 games in which he was 40-16 with a 2.40 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP.  He won the 2010 N.L. Cy Young Award in his first year with the team.  But, in the last two years, Halladay has started 32 games in which he is 13-12 with a 5.24 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP.  The Phillies shouldn’t bring Halladay back until he’s 100% healthy.

UPDATE:  (5/8/2013) – The Phillies could be without Roy Halladay for the rest of the season.  He needs right shoulder surgery to remove a bone spur and correct a partially torn rotator cuff and a frayed labrum.

The back end of the starting rotation is looking good so far for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Wednesday 17 April 2013 at 12:33 pm

28-year old righty Kyle Kendrick (#4 starter) and 28-year old lefty John Lannan (#5 starter) are off to good starts in 2013 for the Phillies.  Kendrick has started 3 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.  Lannan has started 2 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 2.77 ERA and a 0.69 WHIP.  If Kendrick and Lannan keep up the good work, the Phillies have to feel good about winning every night they play.  Because, Cole Hamels and Roy Halladay are going to turn things around soon and Cliff Lee is off to an outstanding start.

UPDATE:  (4/18/2013) – The Phillies have placed John Lannan on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left quadriceps muscle.  He had a rough night against the Reds last night.  He was the losing pitcher as he only lasted 1 2/3 innings in which he gave up 8 hits, 6 runs (all earned) while walking 1 batter and whiffing 1 batter.  Lannan has now started 3 games for the Phillies in 2013 and he is 0-1 with a 6.14 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.  Lannan will likely miss the next 6-8 weeks.

Ryan Howard is done for the season for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Sunday 30 September 2012 at 8:04 am

32-year old lefty swinging 1B Ryan Howard is done for the season after dropping a warmup bat, breaking his toe last night. Howard had a lost season as he had a very late start as he was rehabbing from Achilles surgery. Howard played in 71 games for the Phillies this year and he was 57 for 260 (.219 avg, .718 OPS) with 28 runs scored, 14 homers and 56 RBIs. 26-year old rookie righty swinging Darin Ruf will likely start the last four games this year for the Phillies at 1B. He has played in 8 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 7 for 21 (.333 avg, .889 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 homer and 5 RBIs.

Kevin Frandsen is going to try to play through a stress fracture for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Monday 10 September 2012 at 1:30 pm

30-year old righty swinging infielder Kevin Frandsen is going to try to play through a stress fracture in his left fibula the rest of the season, if he can take the pain. Frandsen has played in 35 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 44 for 129 (.341 avg, .792 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 1 homer and 9 RBIs. The Phillies are going to have to watch Frandsen’s P.T. the rest of the season so he doesn’t hurt himself any worse.
