Phils Promote Brignac, Giles; Camp Elects Free Agency

Brignac improves the Phillies bench immediately. The Phillies have added infielder Reid Brignac to their Major League roster today following the demotion last night of Freddy Galvis.

Phillies Need to Find Consistency

The Phillies have had a lot of trouble staying over the .500 mark so far this season. Just when it looks like this team has turned the corner, just when it looks like they might start winning more consistently, they disappoint us. Whether the offense spoils a brilliant outing by a starter, or the bullpen blows a late lead, the Phillies have struggled to win consistently. Last weekend’s...

Darin Ruf Begins Rehab Assignment For Class A Clearwater

Some good news on the Phillies injury front. The Phillies' bench has been incredibly impotent, something that the Phillies are really feeling this week in Toronto when they need a designated hitter.

Phillies' Ethan Martin making progress

The Phillies just lost four straight to the Toronto Blue Jays, dropping their record to 15-18, so a bit of good news is in order.
