Subject: Phils amid stretch of stagnant starting pitching

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This is not the way the Phillies wanted to enter the final month of the season. After the Mets pounded them Saturday night at Citi Field, 12-1, they find themselves limping into September with just four more games to play in August. The Phillies have lost seven of their last 10, with their starters posting a 6.79 ERA (42 earned runs in 55 2/3 innings) in that stretch.

Robert Gsellman probably didn't picture his first Major League appearance playing out as it did. Promoted Aug. 22 to provide bullpen stability, the long-haired righty from Santa Monica, Calif., found himself on the mound one day later in the first inning of the Mets' 7-4 win over the Cardinals.

Subject: Blanco rejoining Phils after rosters expand

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said Andres Blanco is the best utility player he has seen in 48 years. Blanco has not played since July 24 because of a broken left index finger. He said Sunday morning at Citi Field that he expects to rejoin the team sometime after the Phillies' roster can expand Thursday, although it likely will be after that.

Any small chance that Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson had to be traded before the end of the season has become no chance.

Vince Velasquez did not pitch to perfection Sunday afternoon at Citi Field, but he pitched to positive results anyway. He needed them.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

A.J. Ellis could not hide his disappointment Thursday, when the Dodgers blindsided him and traded him to the Phillies. But as Ellis joined the Phillies on Saturday, he said his feelings of disappointment had started to fade and he had refocused and found a new purpose with his new team.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Grenny Cumana batted .476 (10-21) with a double, two RBI, a stolen base and five runs scored in six games. He registered three consecutive multi-hit games, during which he recorded his fourth four-hit game of the season. Cumana's .294 average ranks seventh in the South Atlantic League, and he is the hardest player in the league to strikeout, averaging just one every 12.45 at-bats. The Venezuela native was signed by the Phillies as an amateur free agent on March 10, 2013.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

As the Nationals look to extend an already firm lead in the National League East against the Phillies, they will hope Max Scherzer's 10 strikeouts over eight shutout innings against the Orioles can propel him into his Tuesday start and on a run into the postseason. Philadelphia counters with its most consistent starter, Jerad Eickhoff.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Manager Pete Mackanin and the Phillies plan to use September's expanded rosters to get an extended look at some of their young players, but Tyler Goeddel won't be one of them. "I've seen enough of Goeddel to know -- we kept him this long, we're going to keep him and see where we go next year with him," Mackanin said. "I don't feel a need to play him."

Subject: 20th HR shows Howard can do more with less

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Ryan Howard has 20 or more homers in a season for the 11th time, so the accomplishment in and of itself is not unusual. But considering that he has spent the 2016 campaign in a reserve role, it is noteworthy that he has hit 20 in just 276 at-bats.
