JAKE DIEKMAN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Digging Deeper into the Phillies’ Combined No-Hitter

On Monday, September 1st 2014, the Phillies finally gave their fans something to smile about. Cole Hamels, Jake Diekman, Ken Giles, and Jonathan Papelbon threw the franchise’s first combined no-hitter. Of course, a combined a no-hitter is not your conventional no-hitter.

Phillies Player Review: Jake Diekman

DIekman was one of few brightspots for the Phillies’ 2013 bullpen. The Phillies wrapped up their 2013 season yesterday, finishing 27th in bullpen ERA, 28th in FIP (defined here), 28th in xFIP (defined here), and 29th in BB/9 IP.

Philadelphia Phillies storyline: trade debate

Jake Diekman of the Philadelphia Phillies will probably join the team on Friday, like Michael Stutes did in 2011. He is the best in stats of all the internal help until the deadline for deals, but this deficiency won’t be a July problem. There are 2 other southpaws at Triple-A Lehigh Valley as possibilities.

Prospect Nation 2012: #18 LHP Jake Diekman

Lefty reliever Jake Diekman raised his value a considerable amount in 2011.
