Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by joelapinski on Wednesday 28 September 2016 at 7:53 am

28-year old righty reliever Jeanmar Gomez was doing really good work for the first five months of the 2016 for the Philadelphia Phillies as their closer.  But, he has imploded in September and it likely means that he won’t enter the 2017 season as their closer.  He has pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Phillies in September so far and he is 0-2 with 3 saves, a 16.20 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP.  He has given up 17 hits (2 homers) and 3 walks while whiffing 8 batters in his first 6 2/3 innings this month.  Gomez has now pitched in 68 games (0 starts) for the Phillies overall this year and he is 3-4 with 37 saves, a 4.28 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP.  He has given up 74 hits and 20 walks while whiffing 46 batters in his first 67 1/3 innings for the Phillies this year.  Gomez has now pitched in 133 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 5-7 with 37 saves, a 3.61 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by joelapinski on Monday 26 September 2016 at 2:23 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have shut down 22-year old righty starting pitcher Jake Thompson for the rest of the 2016 season.  Thompson came into this season as the Phillies’ #3 prospect according to Baseball America.  Thompson pitched in 10 games (all starts) for the Phillies in 2016 in his first taste of the show and he was 3-6 with a 5.70 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP.  Thompson gave up 53 hits (10 homers) and 28 walks while whiffing 32 batters in his first 53 2/3 innings in the show this year.  Thompson also pitched in 21 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Phillies this year in which he was 11-5 with a 2.50 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP.  Thompson was one of the prospects the Phillies got from the Rangers last July in the deal that sent Cole Hamels to them.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by joelapinski on Friday 22 July 2016 at 8:17 am

The Philadelphia Phillies have designated 25-year old lefty reliever Daniel Stumpf for assignment.  Stumpf pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Phillies this year and he was 0-0 with a 10.80 ERA and a 2.20 WHIP.  He gave up 9 hits (1 homer) and 2 walks while whiffing 2 batters in his 5 innings with the Phillies.  Stumpf will have to be offered back to the Kansas City Royals if he clears waivers, as the Phillies took him in the Rule 5 Draft last winter.

UPDATE:  (7/25/2016) – The Phillies have returned Daniel Stumpf to the Royals.

Adam Morgan is pitching batting practice for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by joelapinski on Thursday 23 June 2016 at 6:28 am

26-year old lefty starting pitcher Adam Morgan of the Philadelphia Phillies is getting hit really hard so far this year.  He has pitched in 11 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 1-6 with a 6.55 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP.  He has given up 78 hits (12 homers) and 14 walks while whiffing 48 batters in his first 57 2/3 innings so far this year.  Morgan has now pitched in 26 games (all starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 6-13 with a 5.32 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  It might be time to give another pitcher a shot in the starting rotation, as Morgan has been getting drilled so far this year.

The Philadelphia Phillies’ bullpen has been horrible so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by joelapinski on Thursday 7 April 2016 at 12:03 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have ruined great efforts from their starting pitchers do to the bullpen imploding so far this year.  Righties David Hernandez, Dalier Hinojosa and lefty James Russell are a combined 0-2 with a 37.79 ERA and a 5.40 WHIP so far this year!  They have combined to give up 6 hits, 7 runs (all earned), walked 3 batters and they have 1 strikeout in 1 2/3 innings so far this year.  The Phillies need these guys to straighten out soon, or they are going to need to try other relievers late in games.

Roy Halladay is running on fumes for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by joelapinski on Tuesday 17 September 2013 at 5:52 pm

36-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay was awesome in 2010, his first year with the Phillies.  He pitched in 33 games (all starts) for the Phillies in 2010 and he was 21-10 with a 2.44 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP.  He gave up 231 hits and 30 walks while whiffing 219 batters in his 250 2/3 innings pitched for the Phillies in 201o, which were impressive numbers.  He won the N.L. Cy Young Award for the Phillies in 2010.  Halladay then signed a 3-year, $60 million dollar deal in the winter of 2011, which hasn’t worked out too well for the Phillies.  He has pitched in 11 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 3-4 with a 7.28 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.  He has given up 51 hits (12 homers) and 31 walks while whiffing 49 batters in his first 55 2/3 innings this year, so he is getting hit really hard.  He has now pitched in 101 games (all starts) in his first four years with the Phillies and he is 54-28 with a 3.26 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.   These are very likely Roy Halladay’s last two weeks with the Phillies.

Cole Hamels has been a little bit off in 2013 for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by joelapinski on Wednesday 5 June 2013 at 2:44 pm

29-year old lefty starting pitcher Cole Hamels has to be glad that May is over.  He started 6 games in May for the Phillies and he was 0-6 with a 4.95 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  Overall this year, Hamels has pitched in 12 games (all starts) in which he is 1-9 with a 4.86 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP.  Hamels has given up 74 hits (10 homers) and he has walked 25 batters while whiffing 66 of them in his first 74 innings so far this year.  Hamels has now pitched in 224 games (223 starts) in his first 8 years with the Phillies and he is 92-69 with a 3.42 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.  Hamels is probably going to turn things around in the very near future as he is a way better pitcher than he has shown so far in 2013.

Cole Hamels and Roy Halladay are off to rocky starts in 2013 for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by joelapinski on Tuesday 9 April 2013 at 9:40 am

29-year old lefty starting pitcher Cole Hamels and 35-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay are both getting pounded so far this year.  Hamels has pitched in 2 games (both starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA and a 1.97 WHIP.  He has given up 16 hits (4 homers), walked 5 batters and he has whiffed 7 batters in his first 10 2/3 innings and that’s pretty stinky.  It looks like a mechanical problem for Hamels, but the Phillies need to be very concerned with Halladay as his velocity is way down.  He has pitched in 2 games (both starts) so far this year for the Phillies and he is 0-2 with a 14.73 ERA and a 2.56 WHIP.  He has given up 12 hits (3 homers), walked 6 batters and he has whiffed 12 in his first 7 1/3 innings of 2013.  If the Phillies have any hopes of making a playoff run in 2013, they need to get Hamels and Halladay back on the right path soon.

Roy Halladay is having a rough time since coming off the D.L. for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Thursday 26 July 2012 at 3:22 pm

35-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay has had a rough time since coming off the D.L. He has started 2 games for the Phillies and he is 0-0 with a 6.55 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. Halladay has now pitched in 13 games (all starts) so far this year and he is 4-5 with a 4.32 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. The Phillies aren’t too worried about him yet, but he hasn’t really pitched consistently well this season since April. Could father time and the heavy workloads of the past be catching up to Halladay? Only time will tell.

The Philadelphia Phillies have outrighted Brian Sanches to AAA

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP by chinmusic on Friday 11 May 2012 at 5:06 pm

The Phillies have outrighted 33-year old righty reliever Brian Sanches to AAA. Sanches pitched in 3 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he was 0-1 with a 11.25 ERA and a 2.75 WHIP. Sanches gave up 9 hits (2 homers) in only 4 innings for the Phillies this year, as opposing batters have been running up to the plate against him. Sanches has now pitched in 192 games (2 starts) in his first seven years in the majors and he is 13-7 with a 3.71 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Sanches could get another chance with the Phillies at some point in 2012.
