Stat Line: 7.1 IP, 2 R, 9 K’s, 0 BB, No Decision
Jacob deGrom’s stat line doesn’t do him any justice in breaking down his outing from last night. DeGrom picked up where he left off, extending his scoreless innings streak to 15 before leaving last night’s game in the eighth inning with base runners on first and second base. Those base runners eventually came around...
When it comes to deal-making groundwork for July 31, it won’t begin on June 30 for the Philadelphia Phillies regarding Cole Hamels and the others. No, most plans are either carryovers from the previous December or March depending on the reasons: goals, budgets, attendance, competition, prospects, ages of talent, shortcomings, market size, current and healthy personnel, etc.
DENVER (AP) Cole Hamels pitched efficiently into the eighth inning and Odubel Herrera broke a tie in the sixth with a two-run double as the Philadelphia Phillies won their sixth straight game by beating the Colorado Rockies 4-3 Monday night.
Hamels (4-3) allowed one run and struck out seven in 7 1-3 sharp innings. The left-hander is 11-0 since 2014 when the Phillies score three...

After getting his first day off of the season Sunday, and as Ryne Sandberg begins to get a little more experimental with the outfield on a daily basis, let’s take a look at this season’s outfield star, Odubel Herrera, and another option Sandberg could have for him.
Odubel came to Philadelphia in the Rule 5 draft this offseason, and has proven to be one of Ruben Amaro’s best...
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera was the surprise of spring training, and his production at the plate continued into the regular season. But the chances of him sustaining that level of play was not very good. There are a few reasons why his numbers have slipped, which has caused him to drop from the leadoff position to the seventh spot in Ryne Sandberg’s lineup....

Searching for some positives for the Phillies is a difficult task this season. They're terrible, no other way to put it. There have been a few, literally, only a few, bright spots though. Pheeling Positive: *Odubel Herrera - he was essentially free (cost only $50K) and he looks to be a useful piece heading forward. He's batting .286/.699 with 11 R, 9 RBI, and 5 stolen bases...
The blueprint for tomorrow is quickly progressing for the Philadelphia Phillies, and Maikel Franco should be the first player promoted. But because major league jobs are in the offing, the corner infielder will not be alone after the trading deadline. However, mid-season advancements from the Double-A Reading Fightin Phils to the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs will pacify the...
To say things didn’t go as planned for Severino Gonzalez would be a massive understatement. The 22-year old rookie made his Major League debut this evening and was tasked with facing one of the NL’s best offenses.
He did not do well.
Gonzalez was hit hard and hit often, allowing seven earned runs in just two and two thirds innings pitched. Three straight hits in the first plated...
It’s been a rough first month of the season for the Phillies, but one of the things worth cheering for in these first few weeks has been the promising play of rookie Odubel Herrera. The 23-year old Venezuelan, a rule 5 draft pick last year from the Texas Rangers, has...
What the hell is wrong with Chase Utley? He was amazeballs during Spring Training, but has been nearly the worst everyday player in MLB to begin the season. Out of 192 qualified batters, Utley's .404 OPS ranks 189th. Want a crazy stat? Sure you do, and even if you don't, you're now gonna read it anyway...the Phillies bullpen has the 9th best ERA (2.98) but the worst WHIP (1...

"El Torito" has been enfuego so far for the Phils, but can he keep it up?
As the game started in Philadelphia, we saw something from Cole Hamels that we hadn’t seen in some time; a solid first inning. Cole started the game strong with two strike outs and a walk to Giancarlo Stanton. The offense started hot again with Odubel Herrera singling in the lead-off spot, and another hit from Chase Utley for the half inning. The Phillies ended the inning...

Along with the emergence and rise of center fielder Odubel Herrera has been the fall of former center fielder Ben Revere. Already having lost his spot as the team's center fielder, Revere also lost his spot in the batting order. After 42 at bats, Revere has just seven hits, for...
After the Phillies 1-6 road trip, there isn't really much to be excited about on this team, with the exception of Odubel Herrera, Cody Asche and even Freddy Galvis. There are plenty of questions surrounding the team, so let's get started on some of the fan submissions from today... With...
