Kerplunk: Pirates 5, Phillies 4

Another baseball game was lost today. Things at PNC Park today started with an additional clip for the Cesar Hernandez’s Very Poor Base Running Lowlight Reel that will be produced this season in lieu of a video yearbook. An Odubel Herrera strikeout later, the first inning seemed to be following the script for most of the Phillies’ innings this season, but then Andres Blanco stepped...

Odubel Herrera whiffs route on hit to center field

Whoops. Odubel Herrera has done fairly well since being plucked in the Rule 5 draft by the Phillies. A weird batting stance doesn't overshadow his above-average bat in a strong defensive position - center field. Both DRS and UZR liked his defense last year, which combined with his offense led to a 3.9 fWAR season. However, everyone makes mistakes. Like this one: I've made a huge...

The Philadelphia Phillies finish the first half strong

The Philadelphia Phillies finished the first half of the season on a good note. In the last 11 games the Phillies had eight wins. Odubel Herrera has been named to the all-star team and rightly so. Herrera is playing very well. The lead-off hitter has a .380 on base percentage and has 10 home-runs. The center fielder also plays his position very well. Although Herrera made the all...

Odubel Herrera is an All Star

Odubel Herrera takes the plate on a steamy day in Philadelphia. Down 1-0 to the Braves, on the first pitch of the at bat in the 5th inning, he slices a double down the left field line, scoring Cesar Hernandez, tying up the game. He looks over the bench, flashes his “horns” and the dugout does the same. El Torito is an all-star. If you don’t know who Odubel Herrera is, clearly...

Odubel Herrera: Unknown Prospect to 2016 All-Star

From being an international free agent signing in 2008, to an MLB center fielder in 2016, Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera has had quite the ride in his professional career.

WATCH: Odubel Herrera forgets how many outs there are, gives fan a souvenir

The Philadelphia Phillies got walloped 13-2 by the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday at Citizens Bank Park, and a play in the top of the eighth inning summarized the Phillies’ night quite well. Toronto’s Michael Saunders hit a flyball which Philadelphia center fielder Odubel Herrera caught for the second out of the inning. I repeat, the second out of the inning. Herrera thought...

WATCH: Terrible Phillies defense results in a Stephen Drew inside-the-park home run

The Philadelphia Phillies may no longer be the MLB’s worst franchise, but that does not mean the club is immune to the occasional on-field disaster. The Phillies exhibited some familiar habits Tuesday night when Stephen Drew came to bat in the ninth inning. With the Nationals already up 4-1, Drew hit a deep fly ball off reliever Colton Murray. Outfielder Odubel Herrera rushed...

What’s Going On With Odubel Herrera

This year, Odubel Herrera is an everyday player, and only two players in baseball have drawn more walks. On its own, maybe that doesn’t convey its real significance, so consider that, last year, Odubel Herrera was an everyday player, and 193 players in baseball drew more walks. Herrera today has more than twice as many walks drawn as Joey Votto. Votto last year out-walked Herrera...
