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.

Juan Pierre has been outstanding for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2012

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 24 September 2012 at 3:52 pm

35-year old lefty swinging outfielder Juan Pierre couldn’t find a job last winter and he decided to sign a minor league deal with the Phillies. He earned the starting job in LF and he has not looked back. Pierre has played in 125 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 120 of 383 (.313 avg, .735 OPS) with 58 runs scored, 1 homer, 25 RBIs and 35 stolen bases. He has been red hot in September, helping the Phillies make a late Wild Card run. Pierre has played in 15 games so far in September and he is 20 for 49 (.408 avg, .943 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 0 homers, 3 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.

Cliff Lee has been rock solid in September for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 18 September 2012 at 4:51 pm

34-year old lefty starting pitcher Cliff Lee is on fire for the Phillies so far in September. Lee has started 4 games so far this month and he is 3-0 with a 0.95 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP. He has given up 24 hits and walked 3 batters while whiffing 28 batters in his first 28 1/3 innings this month, as he has been impressive. Lee has now pitched in 27 games (all starts) for the Phillies overall this year and he is 6-7 with a 3.27 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. The Phillies are going to need Lee to stay hot if they are going to make it to the playoffs as a Wild Card team.

Roy Halladay has looked like his old self for the Philadelphia Phillies in August

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 30 August 2012 at 9:32 am

35-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay has been rock solid so far in August for the Phillies. Halladay has started 5 games so far in August and he is 4-1 with a 2.75 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP. He has only given up 28 hits and 4 walks while whiffing 29 batters in his 36 innings this month for the Phillies. Halladay has now pitched in 19 games (all starts) for the Phillies overall this year and he is 8-7 with a 3.88 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. It’s nice to see Halladay pitching well and the Phillies hope he finishes the year strongly.

Cliff Lee has gotten little luck this year for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 22 August 2012 at 9:43 am

33-year old lefty starting pitcher Cliff Lee hasn’t been getting much help from his teammates this year. He has started 22 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 2-7 with a 3.78 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. He has given up 156 hits (22 homers) and walked 25 batters in his first 154 2/3 innings for the Phillies this year while whiffing 151 batters. Lee has now pitched in 66 games (all starts) for the Phillies in his three years with the team and he is 26-19 with a 3.03 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. It’s amazing to me that Lee only has 2 wins this year based on how well he has pitched.

Kyle Kendrick has pitched well lately for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 8 August 2012 at 8:47 am

27-year old righty starter/reliever Kyle Kendrick has pitched well lately, which is good news for the Phillies, as he will be needed to replace Joe Blanton (traded to the Dodgers) in the starting rotation. Kendrick has pitched in 9 games (2 starts) since July 1st, in which he is 2-1 with a 0.95 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. He has now pitched in 26 games (14 starts) for the Phillies overall this year and he is 4-9 with a 4.45 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP.

The Philadelphia Phillies are going to try to lock up Cole Hamels

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 20 July 2012 at 9:29 am

The Phillies are going to attempt to lock up 28-year old lefty starting pitcher Cole Hamels to a long term deal. If he rejects them, he is likely going to be traded by the deadline on July 31st. Hamels has pitched in 18 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 11-4 with a 3.07 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. He has now pitched in 199 games (198 starts) in his first seven years with the Phillies and he is 85-58 with a 3.36 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. The Phillies could get an impressive haul for Hamels, but they would rather keep him around.

Cliff Lee is pitching well for the Philadelphia Phillies, but he has nothing to show for it

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 25 June 2012 at 1:20 pm

33-year old lefty starting pitcher Cliff Lee has been rock solid this year, but he’s not getting much help from the rest of the team. Lee has pitched in 12 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 0-4 with a 3.72 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. He has only given up 79 hits and 17 walks in his first 84 2/3 innings this year with 86 strikeouts, which is pretty darn impressive. He doesn’t have any wins, because the offense isn’t helping him much. Lee has been supported with 6 or more runs only twice so far this year. The Phillies have scored 2 or fewer runs five times so far this year with Lee pitching and they have also scored 3-5 runs five times when Lee was on the mound. Lee has now pitched in 56 games (all starts) in his first three years with the Phillies and he is 24-16 with a 2.88 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. Hopefully the Phillies start scoring runs more often for Lee in the near future, because it’s amazing to me that he has yet to win a game this year, despite pitching pretty well.

Kyle Kendrick is stepping up for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 4 June 2012 at 10:41 am

27-year old righty starter/reliever Kyle Kendrick is by far the best #6 starter in all of baseball. His season started slowly in April when he pitched in 6 games (2 starts) for the Phillies in which he was 0-2 with a 6.59 ERA and a 1.83 WHIP. But, he has really stepped up so far in May and June, pitching in 6 games (5 starts) in which he is 2-2 with a 2.97 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Kendrick has now pitched in 12 games (7 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 2-4 with a 4.02 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. The Phillies need Kendrick to keep up the good work as he is essentially replacing Roy Halladay in the starting rotation.

Raul Valdes is looking good so far for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 28 May 2012 at 10:25 am

34-year old lefty reliever Raul Valdes has been electric for the Phillies so far this year. He has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.55 WHIP. He has only given up 3 hits in his first 7 1/3 innings for the Phillies while whiffing 10 batters and walking only 1. Valdes has now pitched in 57 games (1 start) in his first three years in the majors and he is 5-4 with 1 save, a 4.15 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. The Phillies hope that Valdes keeps up the good work, that way he can team with Antonio Bastardo to give them a nasty pair of lefties out of the pen.
