This season, outfielder Kelly Dugan has shown why the Phillies once selected him with their top draft choice (2nd round, 2009). Earlier this season, the California native tallied a .318 average along with 10 homers and 36 RBI in 56 games with Class A Advanced Clearwater. Since being promoted to Double-A Reading, the 22-year-old lefty hitter has posted a .274 average with four doubles, a home run and three RBI in 16 games.
In the past Dugan was held back by injuries, but now the youngster is finally excelling in the Phillies’ developmental ranks and fully looks like he belongs at the upper levels of the minors.
Recently, Kelly shared some thoughts on transitioning to the Eastern League, having some friends and family checking out his Double-A debut and more.
- I know you had some family in Trenton for your first weekend in Double-A. Talk a bit about who was there.
Aw, yeah, my dad (movie director Dennis Dugan) and Richard and Beverly Kline (Richard pl...

On this day nine years ago, Phillies Nation was born.
I was living in Washington, DC (then a baseball wasteland) and had no quality Phillies news readily available. I decided to take it upon myself to start something I would enjoy reading. Thankfully, nine years later Phillies Nation is still my go-to source for news and analysis on the Phils.
Here is our first post:
In their 4th consecutive loss on Wednesday night, I do believe the Phillies finally rolled over and died. They did not just lose 4 games, they were slaughtered in the ugliest and most painful manner possible.
Every problem this team has had this season was glaring in last night’s 3-11 drubbing, courtesy of the Cardinals. It was a proverbial highlight reel of all that is wrong with...
The Phillies continue to receive bad news.
Domonic Brown is out of the lineup with concussion-like symptoms. According to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com, Brown is being tested for a concussion today, and could return Friday if the test goes well. If not, he’ll be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list at the very least.
Brown likely suffered the injury in last night’s game after...
Rollins and Utley and Howard... together for at least two more years? The Phillies may be negotiating with second baseman Chase Utley on a contract extension. CSNPhilly's Jim Salisbury had a few indications in his piece last night. • A person with knowledge of the situation says the Phillies have...
Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown has been placed on the 7-day concussion DL. Outfielder/first baseman Steve Susdorf was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill the roster spot.
Brown 25 suffered the concussion on Tuesday when he banged his head against the ground making a diving catch. He went for tests on Wednesday. By rule a player must be cleared by MLB before being activated...
Earlier this season, it appeared that the Philadelphia Phillies could trade second baseman Chase Utley as their season appeared to be going nowhere. There are still questions regarding the Phillies' status as contenders, but regardless of their place in the standings Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly reports that the team has recently engaged in talks with Utley about a contract extension...

The second half of the 2013 MLB season isn’t exactly starting off the way Philadelphia Phillies fans had hoped. After working their way up to .500 just before the All-Star break, the Phil’s have managed to drop three of their last four games. Earlier this month, veteran reliever Brian Wilson who [...]The post Phillies Looking To Add Brian Wilson? appeared first on Eagles Pulse.
Philadelphia Phillies' All-Star outfielder Domonic Brown missed Wednesday's game and will miss today's game with concussion-like symptoms.
As reported by Todd Zolecki of MLB.com,
"Brown slammed into the turf trying to make a catch on Carlos
Beltran's triple in the seventh inning of Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the
Cardinals at Busch Stadium. He complained...
Michael Martinez is in, and Domonic Brown is out. That, my friends, is the formula for winning. Mix in John Lannan and this Phillies bullpen, and the team is guaranteed success. Tonight's scenario was set up exactly like this, as Philly looked to avenge last night's 4-1 loss to the...
At this point of the season, teams that are hoping to make a push into contention or bolster their roster for a hopeful playoff run are targeting additions on the trade market. While several swaps figure to take place in the next week, there is at least one player out there who teams don't have to surrender prospects for; former San Francisco Giants closer and current free agent Brian...

Before the All Star Break, John Lannan pitched two of his best games of the season, possibly his career. His last two starts against Washington and the Chicago White Sox, he pitched eight innings and only allowed one run between the two starts. He's been on a nice run and...
Last night's game was a lot of fun. Looks like we will have more of that. The Phillies placed outfielder Domonic Brown on the disabled list, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer's Matt Gelb.
