Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 3 April 2016 at 7:45 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 27-year old righty reliever Michael Mariot on the 15-day disabled list due to an ankle injury.  Mariot pitched in 2 games (0 starts) for the Royals last year and he was 0-0 with a 3.00 ERA and a 0.33 WHIP.  He also pitched in 42 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball last year in which he was 4-2 with 8 saves, a 2.32 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP.  Mariot has now pitched in 19 games (0 starts) in his first two years in the show and he is 1-0 with a 6.11 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP.  Mariot will likely have to work his way up to the majors with a stint in the minors after he gets healthy.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 3 April 2016 at 7:07 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 30-year old lefty starting pitcher Matt Harrison on the 60-day disabled list, as he continues to recover from back surgery.  Harrison pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the Rangers last year and he was 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 135 games (103 starts) in his first 8 years in the show and he is 50-35 with 2 saves, a 4.21 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP.  Harrison was an American League All-Star in 2008, and he finished 8th in the Cy Young voting that season.  Harrison came to the Phillies on July 31, 2015…as he was part of the return they got when they dealt Cole Hamels and Jake Diekman to the Rangers.  It will be a surprise if Harrison ever pitches for the Phillies.

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 27-year old lefty reliever Mario Hollands on the 60-day disabled list, as he continues to recover from Tommy John surgery.  He missed the entire 2015 season.  Hollands pitched in 50 games (0 starts) for the Phillies in 2014 and he was 2-2 with a 4.40 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP.  Hollands should be able to come back late in 2016 for the Phillies, if his rehab continues to go well.

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 25-year old lefty swinging OF/3B Cody Asche on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained oblique muscle.  Asche played in 129 games for the Phillies last year and he was 104 of 425 (.245 avg, .689 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 12 homers, 39 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He has now played in 300 games in his first three years with the Phillies and he is 242 of 984 (.246 avg, .693 OPS) with 102 runs scored, 27 homers, 107 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  The Phillies hope that Asche won’t miss too much time, as they need all of the help that they can get.

The Philadelphia Phillies lose Aaron Altherr

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 8 March 2016 at 6:12 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have lost 25-year old righty swinging outfielder Aaron Altherr for the next 4-6 months after he had left wrist surgery.  He played in 39 games for the Phillies last year and he was 33 of 137 (.241 avg, .827 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 5 homers, 22 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  This is a huge blow to both Altherr and the Phillies, as he was penciled in as the starting RF for the 2016 season.  The loser of the competition in LF between Peter Bourjos and Cody Asche will likely be the frontrunner for the starting job in RF to start the 2016 season.  Tyler Goeddel and David Lough will also likely be in the competition to replace Altherr in RF.

UPDATE:  (4/2/2016) – The Philadelphia Phillies have placed Aaron Altherr on the 60-day disabled list to start the 2016 season.

The Philadelphia Phillies shut down Kyle Kendrick

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 22 September 2013 at 6:00 am

The Phillies have shut down 29-year old righty starting pitcher Kyle Kendrick for the rest of the 2013 season due to right shoulder tendinitis.  Kendrick pitched in 30 games (all starts) for the Phillies in 2013 and he was 10-13 with a 4.70 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 194 games (153 starts) in his first seven years with the Phillies and he is 64-55 with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP.  The Phillies were smart to shut down Kendrick and protect his shoulder, as they aren’t playing for anything but pride right now.

The Philadelphia Phillies place Casper Wells on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Monday 26 August 2013 at 1:04 pm

The Phillies have placed 28-year old righty swinging outfielder Casper Wells on the 15-day disabled list due to vision problems.  Wells has played in 11 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 1 for 23 (.043 avg, .207 OPS) with 2 runs scored.  Wells has now played in 52 games for the A’s, White Sox and Phillies so far this year and he is 12 of 94 (.128 avg, .337 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI.  This makes perfect sense, as Wells is a better player than he has shown so far this year.  Maybe he just needs glasses.

The Philadelphia Phillies place John Lannan on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 16 August 2013 at 12:17 pm

The Phillies have placed 28-year old lefty starting pitcher John Lannan on the 15-day disabled list due to a left knee injury.  Lannan has pitched in 14 games (all starts) for the Phillies overall this year and he is 3-6 with a 5.33 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP.  This might help explain how horrible Lannan was in August.  He started 3 games in August for the Phillies and he was 0-2 with a 12.66 ERA and a 2.53 WHIP.  Lannan gave up 17 hits (4 homers) and 10 walks while whiffing 4 batters in his 10 2/3 innings this month.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by joelapinski on Thursday 8 August 2013 at 12:24 pm

The Phillies have shut down 22-year old righty swinging C/1B Tommy Joseph for the rest of the 2013 season due to lingering concussion like symptoms.  Joseph played in 36 games in Rookie+A+AA+AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 22 of 123 (.179 avg, .514 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 3 homers and 16 RBIs.  Joseph has now played in 388 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 368 of 1,477 (.249 avg, .717 OPS) with 176 runs scored, 52 homers, 227 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Joseph came into this season as the Phillies’ #3 overall prospect according to Baseball America, so it was smart of them to be safe with him and shut him down for 2013.

The Philadelphia Phillies place Jonathan Pettibone on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 2 August 2013 at 1:43 pm

The Phillies have placed 23-year old righty starting pitcher Jonathan Pettibone on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 29th, due to a strained right shoulder.  Pettibone has pitched in 18 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 5-4 with a 4.04 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.  The Phillies have called up 24-year old righty starting pitcher Ethan Martin to replace Pettibone in the starting rotation.  Martin came into this season as the Phillies’ #6 prospect according to Baseball America.  Martin pitched in 21 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 11-5 with a 4.12 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  Martin gave up 94 hits and 67 walks while whiffing 107 batters in his first 115 2/3 innings this year, so he has good stuff but issues with his control.  Martin has now pitched in 137 games (101 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 48-40 with 3 saves, a 4.64 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  The Phillies hope that Martin is ready for the big time and that Pettibone only has to miss a couple of weeks.
