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.

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

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.
