Utley’s Bad News Makes Now Right Time to Move Brown

The news about Chase Utley was not good. The Philadelphia Phillies originally expected him back in the lineup on June 5th. GM Ruben Amaro said that will not happen. Utley still feels tenderness in his side and will likely miss an additional 15 games. While this is a setback for the Fightin’ Phils, it could also be an opportunity for the team and youngster Domonic Brown. Brown won...

Cliff Lee Could Be Pitching His Way Out of Philadelphia, Which Means Red Sox Should Be Interested (Video)

Cliff Lee is good. The Phillies? Not so much. While it remains to be seen whether Philadelphia will be a buyer or a seller at this year’s trade deadline, Cliff Lee is sure to be a name floating around in rumors until the Phils decide. That means that every outing the left-hander has is more or less an audition for any prospective teams looking for a piece to help their rotation...

Phillies' Chase Utley expected back mid-June

The Philadelphia Phillies placed second baseman Chase Utley on the disabled list a week ago due to a strained right oblique. At the time, the team said Utley would be sidelined for at least two to four weeks as a result of the injury. While they were initially optimistic he could be back on the shorter end of that projection, it now appears that he'll be out until the middle...

Four blasts lead Phils to second straight win over Sox

The Phillies (26-27) broke out the power bats on Wednesday, slugging four solo homers in their 4-3 victory over Boston (32-22) at Citizen’s Bank Park. With the win, the Phillies are guaranteed at least a split in their four-game, home-and-home series against the A.L. East leading Red Sox. Four runs seems to be the success marker for the Phils this season. When they score four runs...

Struggling aces face off as Gallardo faces Hamels

Cole Hamels and Yovani Gallardo are front-line starters for their respective teams, but their records are unbecoming of that status as they fight through struggles. Yet both have reason to be optimistic when they square off in the opener of a three-game series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Hamels (1-8, 4.43 ERA) has exceeded his loss total...

Lackey’s Contractual Quirk and Phillies Deals

John Lackey wasn’t at his best Wednesday night but he has pitched effectively for the Red Sox this season. Lackey, signed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract prior to the 2010 season, had a rocky start to his Boston tenure. After posting solid peripherals with poor run prevention marks in 2010, he posted a 6.41 ERA in 2011 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He missed the...

Kendrick (5-3) allowed two runs and four hits in six innings, helping the Phillies win...

Pettibone Finally Roughed Up, Offense Impotent As Red Sox Down Phillies

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1993 Philadelphia Phillies going from worst to first and winning the National League pennant. All season long we will take a look back at each game of the 1993 season.
