The Philadelphia Phillies place 2B Chase Utley on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Wednesday 4 April 2012 at 11:09 pm

The Phillies have placed 33-year old lefty swinging 2B Chase Utley on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26th due to deterioration of cartilage behind his left kneecap. Utley played in 103 games for the Phillies last year and he was 103 of 398 (.259 avg, .769 OPS) with 54 runs scored, 11 homers, 44 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. He has now played in 1,109 games in his first 9 years in the majors and he is 1,198 of 4,133 (.290 avg, .882 OPS) with 731 runs scored, 188 homers, 694 RBIs and 110 stolen bases. Rookie Freddy Galvis is going to get his big shot to start at 2B until Chase Utley is ready to return to action. It’s starting to look like Chase Utley’s best baseball is behind him already.

The Philadelphia Phillies place Ryan Howard on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Wednesday 4 April 2012 at 11:04 pm

The Phillies have placed 32-year old lefty swinging 1B Ryan Howard on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26th due to an Achillies injury. Howard played in 152 games for the Phillies last year and he was 141 of 557 (.253 avg, .835 OPS) with 81 runs scored, 33 homers, 116 RBIs and 1 stolen base. In his first 8 years with the Phillies, Howard has played in 1,027 games in which he is 1,043 of 3,794 (.275 avg, .928 OPS) with 633 runs scored, 286 homers, 864 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. The Phillies are going to use a combination of Ty Wigginton, John Mayberry and Jim Thome at 1B until Howard returns sometime likely in late May or early June. The Phillies are really going to miss Howard’s bat early in the year.

Michael Martinez is going to start the 2012 season on the D.L. for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Tuesday 3 April 2012 at 7:14 pm

29-year old switch-hitting infielder Michael Martinez is D.L. bound due to a foot injury that will cause him to miss the first 6-8 weeks of the 2012 baseball season. He played in 88 games for the Phillies last year and he was 41 of 209 (.196 avg, .540 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 3 homers, 24 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Phillies kept Martinez in the majors all year long as he was a Rule 5 Draft Pick in the winter of 2010. The Phillies are going to miss Martinez’ versatility in the field, but not his bat.

UPDATE: (4/4/2012) - The Phillies have placed Michael Martinez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26th, due to a right foot fracture.

The Philadelphia Phillies place Jose Contreras on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Saturday 31 March 2012 at 2:15 pm

The Phillies have placed 40-year old righty reliever Jose Contreras on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26th due to an elbow issue. Contreras pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. He has now pitched in 84 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 6-4 with 9 saves, a 3.44 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. The Phillies hope that Contreras is ready to go early in the 2012 season, as the bullpen is a tad thin except at the back end of it.

The Philadelphia Phillies lose 2B Harold Garcia for the next 4-6 months

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries, The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 7 March 2012 at 5:14 pm

The Phillies will be without 25-year old lefty swinging 2B Harold Garcia for the next 4-6 months as he has underwent microfracture surgery to his right knee. This is a bad break for Garcia who comes into this season as the Phillies’ #19 prospect according to Baseball America. Garcia played in 12 games in AA-ball for the Phillies last year and he was 15 for 50 (.300 avg, .807 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 2 homers, 4 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He has now played in 400 games in his first seven years in the minors and he is 412 of 1,410 (.292 avg, .804 OPS) with 225 runs scored, 27 homers, 187 RBIs and 107 stolen bases.

The Philadelphia Phillies lose Ryan Howard for a while

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Sunday 9 October 2011 at 4:50 pm

31-year old lefty swinging 1B Ryan Howard ruptured his left Achilles Tendon in his last at bat of the N.L.D.S. against the Cardinals and he needs surgery to repair it. Howard will likely miss at least half, if not all of the 2012 season. This is a HUGE blow to the Phillies already in 2012. Howard played in 152 games for the Phillies in 2011 and he was 141 for 557 (.253 avg, .835 OPS) with 81 runs scored, 31 homers, 116 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Howard has now played in 1,027 games in his first 8 years with the Phillies and he is 1,043 of 3,794 (.275 avg, .928 OPS) with 633 runs scored, 286 homers, 864 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. Howard’s bat in the middle of the Phillies’ lineup will be almost impossible to replace in 2012. Howard also signed a 5-year, $125 contract extension that starts with the 2012 season. The Phillies have an option for the 2017 season worth $23 million bucks with a buyout of $10 million bones. They need him to take his time in his rehab and not to return until he’s 100%, because they have a huge investment in him.

The Philadelphia Phillies place Cole Hamels on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Tuesday 23 August 2011 at 4:27 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 27-year old lefty starting pitcher Cole Hamels on the 15-day disabled list due to left shoulder inflammation. He was placed on the D.L. retroactive to August 13th, so he shouldn’t miss too much time. Still, the Phillies are going to be really careful with him. Hamels has started 25 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 13-7 with a 2.62 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. He has been simply amazing this year for the Phillies as he is in the midst of a “career” year. 26-year old righty Kyle Kendrick will likely replace Hamels in the rotation. Kendrick has pitched in 29 games (12 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 7-5 with a 3.24 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. He has been a godsend for the Phillies this season, stepping into the rotation and pitching well whenever needed. The Phillies have called up 32-year old lefty swinging infielder Pete Orr to replace Hamels on the active roster. Orr played in 29 games earlier this year for the Phillies and he was 15 for 63 (.238 avg, .590 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 3 RBIs and 1 stolen base.

The Philadelphia Phillies place Jimmy Rollins on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Monday 22 August 2011 at 5:45 pm

The Phillies have placed 32-year old switch-hitting SS Jimmy Rollins on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right groin. He has played in 121 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 132 for 493 (.268 avg, .743 OPS) with 79 runs scored, 14 homers, 58 RBIs and 28 stolen bases. Wilson Valdez will take over as the Phillies’ starting shortstop until Rollins is ready to return to action. Valdez will do a solid job defensively but the Phillies will miss Rollins’ bat while he’s out of action.

The Philadelphia Phillies place Placido Polanco on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Wednesday 17 August 2011 at 9:08 am

The Phillies have placed starting 3B Placido Polanco on the 15-day disabled list due to a sports hernia. Polanco has played in 89 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 95 for 345 (.275 avg, .672 OPS) with 35 runs scored, 4 homers, 40 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. 33-year old Wilson Valdez and 28-year old switch-hitting Michael Martinez will likely share time at 3B until Polanco is ready to return to action. Valdez has played in 75 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 47 for 199 (.236 avg, .578 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 0 homers, 17 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Martinez has played in 65 games so far this year for the Phillies and he is 32 or 151 (.212 avg, .551 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 2 homers, 19 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Friday 15 July 2011 at 1:12 pm

The Phillies have placed 35-year old righty swinging 3B Placido Polanco on the 15-day disabled list with lower back inflammation. Polanco has played in 83 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 88 for 321 (.274 avg, .676 OPS) with 34 runs scored, 4 homers, 39 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. 33-year old righty swinging Wilson Valdez and 28-year old switch-hitting Michael Martinez will share 3B until Polanco is ready to return to action. Valdez has played in 64 games so far this year and he is 41 for 175 (.234 avg, .566 OPS) with 20 runs scored, 0 homers, 15 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Martinez has played in 44 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 19 for 83 (.229 avg, .559 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 0 homers and 8 RBIs. The Phillies hope Polanco gets healthy soon because they are going to miss both his bat and mitt.
