Phillies Player Review: Zach Miner

It’s safe to say that when the season started, 31-year-old right-hander Zach Miner was not in the Phillies’ immediate plans. The former Detroit Tiger had been bouncing around the minor leagues since 2009 after pitching to mediocre stats in parts of four years in the big leagues. In Lehigh Valley, he pitched out of the bullpen, making spot starts occasionally and posting less...

Down But Not Out: Zach Miner, Michael Martinez, And Pete Orr Outrighted Off Of Roster

Phillies Outright 4 Players Off 40-Man

Michael Martinez, Pete Orr, Zach Miner, and Mauricio Robles were outrighted off the Phillies 40-man roster. Each, however, has cleared through waivers, meaning there is still an opportunity to stick the the organization. The 31-year old Martinez is the most notable of the group. Mini Mart as he’s come to be known, has played well in the minor leagues but has been unable to translate...

Phillies Season Ends with Ugly Loss to Braves

The Phillies season ends at 73 wins, 89 losses after an ugly 12-5 defeat in the finale against the Atlanta Braves. It’s the most losses in a season since they hit 97 losses in 2000. On the opposite end, the Atlanta Braves, winners of the NL East, finish the year 96-66. On this day, the Phillies would be undone by the fact that their bullpen had to pitch the entire game again.

Phillies Squeak By Marlins on Two First Inning Runs

It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win. The Phillies beat the Marlins, 2-1, with both runs coming in the top of the first inning. Of their five hits on the night, just one came in that first inning. But three consecutive walks, including one to Darin Ruf with the bases loaded, and a Kevin Frandsen ground out, plated the only runs of the evening. It was just enough. Zach Miner led the...
