Yesterday’s performance from the bullpen was embarrassing. The Phillies will try to rebound against the Royals tonight.
John Lannan will be making his Phillies debut. Lannan is 2-5 with a 6.49 career ERA at Citizens Bank Park.
Mendoza is a sinker ball pitcher, so expect a lot of ground balls from the Phillies’ offense.
