Phillies OF Bryce Harper heating up at the right time

Bryce Harper is back to hitting home runs with nine games left on the season Although Jay Bruce has made his return to the lineup, the Philadelphia Phillies are still notably without catcher J.T. Realmuto, first baseman Rhys Hoskins and shortstop Jean Segura. Yet, amid a seemingly revolving door of players being added to the injured list, […] Phillies OF Bryce Harper heating up at the right time - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - A Philadelphia Phillies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Phillies sign Greg Bird, Jonathan Lucroy to MiLB contracts

The Phillies have signed two veterans as apparent back-up options for Rhys Hoskins and J.T. Realmuto Following their series opener victory against the New York Mets at Citizens Bank Park, the Philadelphia Phillies signed two notable veterans to minor-league contracts — first baseman Greg Bird and catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

Back over .500: Phillies 4, Mets 1

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ That dang Injury Bug claims two more players in series opener against the Mets After a disappointing series against the Marlins in Miami, the Phillies returned home to Citizens Bank Park for a three-game series against the New York Mets. With Rhys Hoskins added to the Injured List and J.T. Realmuto still unavailable, the team’s depth is being tested. Adam Haseley got the scoring started for the Phillies, despite not starting the game. Pinch hitting for Kyle Garlick, who left with an oblique injury in the fourth inning, he hit a bases-loaded single to score two...

Gamethread 9/15: Mets at Phillies

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Game #47 We knew it was going to be quick, but it’s still hard to believe: the playoffs start two weeks from tonight. After a depressing, injury riddled series in Miami, where they lost 5 out of 7 (MLB’s first regular season 7-game series in 53 years), the Phillies are hanging on to a 1 1⁄2 game lead for the final playoff spot. They begin this final push to the postseason by hosting the Mets for a three-game series, starting with Jake Arrieta facing fellow righty Rick Porcello. For the Phillies, Rhys Hoskins is now on the IL, and so rookie Alec Bohm...

Phillies mulling Tommy John surgery for Rhys Hoskins

Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins could possibly require season-ending Tommy John surgery The Philadelphia Phillies return to Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday to kick off their final homestand of the shortened 2020 season.

Desperate times: Phillies vs. Mets series preview

The Phillies can’t let Jeff McNeil beat them | Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Time is running out for these two National League East rivals As Marlins fans (They apparently do exist! Who knew?) have let me know on Twitter, the Phillies’ most recent series didn’t go so well. The bullpen continued to suck, and losing J.T. Realmuto, Rhys Hoskins, and Zack Wheeler to injury didn’t exactly improve the team’s overall quality of play. But there’s no time to dwell on the past. The Phillies - or at least the healthy members of the team - need to put the last series behind them and focus on...

Hoskins Will Hit the Injured List; Realmuto Will Not

Game recaps: This was not a good day

Photo by Mark Brown/ At least there is only one more game with Miami Whew, this was not exactly a banner day in Philadelphia. By now, you’ve read about the collapse in Washington by the football team, so let’s focus our attention on the team best positioned for the playoffs - the Phillies. Earlier today, we got some bad news when we saw that J.T. Realmuto and Rhys Hoskins were both out of the lineups for both games, something you don’t want to see any day. Then, when Rafael Marchan was called up to replace the optioned Conner Brogdon, it brought forth speculation that Realmuto...

Gamethread 9/13: ANOTHER doubleheader!

Photo by Cliff Hawkins/ Let’s be honest: you’re not watching the first game Hey, you know what’s a great way of playing a doubleheader? Doing it totally undermanned! J.T. Realmuto is out, Rhys Hoskins isn’t playing in the first game, Spencer Howard is going to be out for a while and Zack Wheeler still isn’t ready. This promises to be a great one. Plus - they’re facing their old top prospect to top it all off! Huzzah! This is how the team will line up in the first game: Game one. #RingTheBell : @NBCSPhilly : @1210WPHT : https://t.co/7M7oNitezi // https://t.co/vgbMhIMsON...

A costly win: Phillies 12, Marlins 6

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports While the team did score a bunch of runs in the victory, they did lose a valuable arm in the rotation The Phillies need wins. It doesn’t really matter how bad the bullpen is at this point, as long as they can continue to get wins, they’ll take them. Tonight, they got a win, but hoo boy did it cost them a bit. The top of the first was fortuitous for the Phillies. They loaded the bases when Richard Urena lost control of everything he had and walked Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto after Rhys Hoskins reached on an error. That brought to the plate Sir Didi...
Phillies split doubleheader with Marlins; Nola tosses a gem

Phillies split doubleheader with Marlins; Nola tosses a gem

Aaron Nola was dominant in Game 1 on Friday night, tossing a complete-game shutout to lead the Phillies to an 11-0 rout of the Marlins. “It’s good,” Nola said, “but, you know, it’s not the original [nine-inning] one.”Andrew McCutchen and Rhys Hoskins each homered in the win. Nola allowed three hits and notched ten strikeouts in the win. He's now 5-3 with a 2.40 ERA. “I definitely wanted to put it on my back to go as long as I can, especially a game like this, a doubleheader,” Nola said. “We’ve got a couple [more doubleheaders] coming up. That’s kind of our job as...

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports He’s had some good games on this run he’s on As the 2020 season was dawning on us, many people were looking around for the player on offense who might come out of seemingly nowhere to help the team win a few games. The easy names - Bryce Harper, J.T. Realmuto - they’re the ones you think of leading the charge. The bounceback candidates - Rhys Hoskins, Scott Kingery - they’re the ones that get the most ink because of their importance to the current and future welfare of the organization. It’s the veterans sprinkled in around the roster that got a...

Not a good night for Philadelphia: Mets 5, Phillies 1

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Not one of the city’s teams could muster any offense tonight As the night began, it looked good for the hottest team in baseball. Real good. But like their ice hockey counterparts in Canada, the Phillies also saw a really good run come to an end at the hands of a team from New York. Facing Seth Lugo, only making his third start as a member of the Mets’ rotation on the season, you had to think that the Phillies were licking their chops even if Didi Gregorius was given the night off. And in the first inning, Rhys Hoskins continued his patented white hot streak,...
