2016 Lehigh Valley IronPigs Preview

The Phillies' AAA team might be their strongest team in the org thanks to five top 10 prospects. Triple-A is supposed to be the waiting room for players who have seen their Major League dreams wither and die. Or, at least, that is what we have been led to believe over the past few seasons. And certainly, the 2016 IronPigs have their share of guys looking to get one more taste of...

Velasquez Added To 25-Man Roster; Several Cut From Camp

It turned out that this week wouldn’t decide who would join Jeremy Hellickson, Aaron Nola, Charlie Morton and Jerad Eickhoff in the Phillies starting rotation. Pete Mackanin announced Monday that Vince Velasquez would start his 2016 season with the Phillies. Adam Morgan has been optioned to triple-A Lehigh Valley.

With Aaron Altherr out for at least half of the 2016 season with a wrist injury, and Cody Asche likely out to start the season with an oblique strain, the Phillies have holes in their outfield configuration. Meanwhile, with Odubel Herrera sidelined for the last week with a finger injury, the Phillies may have a third hole in their outfield configuration. Chances are...

Should the Phillies Add an Outfielder?

According to Jayson Stark, the Phillies are exploring options to bolster their outfield depth. While this is hardly a surprise considering the team was counting on a full season from Aaron Altherr only to see him sidelined by a wrist injury for four-to-six months.
