Phillies need to get more out of their starting rotation

While they are on their way to a playoff spot, the 2019 Phillies need more pitching to improve their roster heading into the back half of the season. In hindsight, the Phillies should have known the rotation could quickly become a repetitive issue. Gabe Kapler had Aaron Nola and Jake Arrieta leading the rotation since […] Phillies need to get more out of their starting rotation - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - A Philadelphia Phillies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Fixing the Phillies: Back of the rotation

Fixing the Phillies: Back of the rotation

The Phillies need some starting pitching help ASAP. After an off-season in which the Phillies added Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura, Bryce Harper, J.T. Realmuto, and David Robertson, it’s clear the team is still in need of help. This weekend’s frustrating series loss to the Braves in Atlanta showed the Phils’ desperate need for starting pitching, and there are other areas of the team could use an upgrade as well. There may not be any way for the Phillies to fix all their problems. If Aaron Nola and Jake Arrieta don’t become a stabilizing force at the top of the rotation, the 2019...

Hey, you don’t have to read this: Braves 15, Phillies 1

Hey, man; that sucked, man. The Phillies lost 15-1 today to the Braves, dropping a series in spectacularly incompetent fashion with a game in which Sean Rodriguez was the only Phillies pitcher to not allow a run. Instead of Jake Arrieta, the Phillies went with a bullpen game and got utterly shellacked by the team most able—and willing—to bury them in the standings. The triumvirate of Vince Velasquez (2.1 IP, 4 h, 4 ER), Cole Irvin (3.2 IP, 9 H, 6 ER), and Jerad Eickhoff (1.0 IP, 6 H, 5 ER) looked utterly outmatched by a Braves offense with no real weaknesses at the moment, and in...

Game Thread 6/15: Phillies at Braves

As with every Nola start in 2019, we ask: Will this be the Nola start in which Nola turns it around? I miss the real Aaron Nola. I do. I know he’s in there somewhere, but I miss having a reliable guy in the rotation, and I miss that guy being specifically Nola; a young arm on the rise, having established himself as a verifiable threat to the NL East. The top of the Phillies pitching staff, a product of their farm system, and whose presence makes Jake Arrieta’s mediocrity look better just by being next to him. Here’s hoping he shows up tonight against the Braves and Sean Newcomb, who...
Arrieta and Kingery star as Phillies take down D-backs

Arrieta and Kingery star as Phillies take down D-backs

The Phillies needed a solid outing from Jake Arrieta on Tuesday night and that's exactly what he provided, leading the Phils to a 7-4 victory over the Diamondbacks at Citizens Bank Park. The veteran tossed six innings, allowing three runs on six hits. It wasn't anything spectacular, but his performance saved the bullpen from being taxed again following Monday's debacle. Hector Neris tossed a perfect ninth to secure his 14th save. Offensively, Scott Kingery remained hot and launched a three-run shot in the third inning for his third home run over the span of two days. He's now hitting .324 on...

Diamondbacks 4, Phillies 7: Where did the home-runs go?

Diamondbacks 4, Phillies 7: Where did the home-runs go?

Tallies were considerably harder to come by for Arizona tonight, but the defense and pitching weren’t up to much either. Record: 35-33. Pace: 83-79, Change on 2018: -3. It seemed just a bit of a pitching mismatch this evening in Philadelphia, at least in terms of major-league experience. Going for the home team: Jake Arrieta, with 235 regular-season starts under his belt, plus nine more in the post-season, including a 2-0 record in his pair of World Series starts. Going for the visitors: Jon Duplantier, making MLB start #3. Even if Arrieta is a long way from the Cy Young winner who went...

The Jay Bruce Show gets an afternoon performance in San Diego. The good news is, after the Phillies won thanks a to big show from new acquisition Jay Bruce, we get to see them all the sooner in a day game. The bad news is, with a win under their belts after halting a five-game losing streak, we have to anticipate something awful happening today to balance it out. But maybe not! Jake Arrieta is on the mound, Bryce Harper and Jean Segura have swapped places in the lineup, and Adam Haseley is playing in his second consecutive major league game. Here is this afternoon's lineup as we look to...

Two NL division leaders go at it in game two. Jake Arrieta didn’t have his best stuff in game one at Chavez Ravine, but the Phillies look to push another (current) survivor of their pitching staff out there in game two against Clayton Kershaw. They finished May 17-11 and in first place; but taking two games from the Dodgers would feel pretty good.

The Phillies visit the NL’s best team Jake Arrieta faces off against Kenta Maeda tonight as the Phillies start a tough series at Chavez Ravine. Lineups Andrew McCutchen is in Center for the Phils tonight, with Nick Williams in Left, while Scott Kingery starts at third base. For LA, the Fresh Prince of Bel Air is catching, and may well be a breath of fresh air for Arrieta in an otherwise lefty-heavy lineup that is one of the best in MLB. (source: Rotowire)

Back-to-back: Phillies 7, Brewers 2

Jake Arrieta was on and the offense was clicking in a dominant win over the Brewers. The Phillies off-season acquisitions over the past few years have largely been guys you have to talk yourself into; hole-pluggers, spot-fillers, and warm bodies to help drag the team through the summer. But one of the easiest ways to distinguish this team from those twisted experiments is that it’s tough to pinpoint which of the Phillies’ new guys has been the best. Jean Segura is a hit machine, Bryce Harper has caused ripple effects up and down the lineup, J.T. Realmuto keeps hitting baseballs further...
