JUSTIN DE FRATUS RUMORS

WATCH: Justin De Fratus makes great pitch then makes error

The Philadelphia Phillies were already down 6-2 to the New York Mets before Chris Young cued this Justin De Fratus curveball between the pitcher’s mound and first base. The awkwardness understandably threw off De Fratus, who made a great pitch and he couldn’t throw out the speedy Young at first. Lucas Duda scored and Travis d’Arnaud went to third (mlb.com).

The Phillies bullpen was a major point of contention this season as it rated as one of the very worst in the sport. However, ‘bullpen’ is not a static term, as relievers come and go. The relief corps at the end of a season could look vastly different than it did during the first couple of months. The Phillies fit this description and, for that reason, it isn’t entirely fair...
