Top Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford has been promoted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Despite being outscored by 28 runs, Pete Mackanin’s club entered Thursday seven games above .500. How are they doing it?
Had Maikel Franco not lost a foul pop in the gray Philadelphia skies, Jeremy Hellickson may have escaped the first inning unscathed.
It was but a week ago the last time the Phillies took two of three at Turner Field, but there’s a different man leading the Braves for this three-game weekend set at Citizens Bank Park.
Jeremy Hellickson, changing speeds and overcoming a rough first inning, kept the Phillies in position to rally like they’ve done so often this season. Cameron Rupp’s two-run single was enough cushion for Philadelphia to claim a 4-2 win over the Marlins on Wednesday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park.
Pete Mackanin had exhausted all his options to extract any bit of offensive production from his corner outfield spots. Cedric Hunter had been optioned to Triple-A. Darin Ruf followed a few weeks later. So why not put some faith into the player taken No. 1 in this year’s Rule 5 Draft? Since May 4, Tyler […]
Less than 24 hours after receiving a standing ovation while standing on first base after his first big league hit, Tommy Joseph stepped on the bag again — but didn’t stay there very long. Joseph’s second-inning solo homer bounced off the left-field foul pole, and the 24-year-old first baseman trotted around the Citizens Bank Park […]

But they’ve also combined to throw fewer than six innings while giving up at least four runs five times.
Phillies right-hander Vince Velasquez set the tone, working out of a first-inning jam, and struck out 10 in five shutout innings. The bullpen kept the K’s coming, Phillies pitchers racking up 17 in a 3-1 win over the Marlins on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park.
Marcell Ozuna and Justin Bour each homered on Monday, and Adam Conley allowed one run in six innings as Miami defeated the Phillies, 5-3, at Citizens Bank Park.
When Tommy Joseph got to first base in the sixth inning of the Phillies’ 5-3 loss to the Marlins on Monday night, he was greeted with a standing ovation from 28,348 faithful at Citizens Bank Park.
The Phillies have granted the release request of veteran catcher J.P. Arencibia. Arencibia, 30, signed a Minor League deal with the Phillies in December. He did not appear in a game for Philadelphia and was hitting .167 with one home run in 12 games for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
