PitchersPhillies veteran pitcher Roy Halladay has come to the realization that he’s got to reinvent himself as a Major League hurler. On Saturday he pitched against some minor leaguers and he was not even close to being impressive.
His fastball was between 85 and 89 miles per hour. He did reach 90mph on one pitch, but [...](Read more...)

The infield is set. The race for the final bullpen spot is likely down to either Phillippe Aumont or Michael Stutes. But what about the Phillies outfield?
Should the Phils go with Ender Inciarte or look to add someone else to be the fifth outfielder?
Ben Revere and Domonic Brown are locked into everyday spots in center and right. Left field, at least in the short term, will...

As the exhibition schedule winds down, we check in one last time with Phillies third base prospect Cody Asche, who has been offering weekly thoughts directly from inside spring training in Clearwater, FL.
A 4th round draft selection in 2011 out of the University of Nebraska, Asche has been a fast rising prospect since joining the Phils...
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay took the mound for the Phillies in a “B” game this morning. Halladay is feeling better after losing 10 pounds from a virus and hoped to have better results than his two previous starts. He didn’t.
Halladay threw 27 pitches in the first inning. His fastball topped out at 90 MPH and was consistently between 88-89, but he lacked command...
It’s a beautiful, sunny day here in Clearwater Bill, Connie and I take our front row seats in the Tiki Terrace. We usually take this opportunity to verbally support our Phil’s and torment any opponent that comes in ear shot, ” Hey Skippy”, Twins outfielder.
As we go thru our linage of insults I spot one player going thru his stretches and playing catch. All the while conversing...
You know what I haven't had in a while? Big League Chew. But I just might now since Cole Hamels will be on the package, as our Andrew Gillen reported a while back. Today, Rob Neyer of SBNation tweeted the pic of the packaging. Check it out: PS - 20...
Freddy Galvis homered and drove in three runs to lead the Philadelphia Phillies over the Tampa Bay Rays 10-1 Tuesday.
Galvis, who hadn't played an inning in the outfield in six professional seasons, made his first start of spring training in left field, a position where the Phillies do not have a set opening-day starter. The 23-year-old Galvis, usually a shortstop, went 2 for...
With one week left of spring training, the Phillies and Blue Jays squared off once again this afternoon in Dunedin. John Lannan took the hill, and did not have an easy outing. Lannan had no alibis for giving up a dozen. "Got my butt kicked. Gotta move on." Good plan....

The disassembling of the prospect group known as the Baby Aces continues, as the Phillies have traded once highly regarded righty hurler Julio Rodriguez to Baltimore for outfielder Ronnie Welty.
Rodriguez once dominated Class A ball, but looked far more human with Double-A Reading last season. Drafted in the 8th round of the 2008 amateur draft, the...

Aaron Cook looks to continue his strong Spring (3.21 ERA) and make his case for a spot on the Phillies roster as he and the Phils lock up with the Orioles in a rematch of the 1983 World Series.
But the big story...
