Philadelphia Phillies: NL East rival vying for J.T. Realmuto

The Phillies are not the lone team still in the mix for J.T. Realmuto. The Philadelphia Phillies might still have some competition to re-sign star free-agent catcher J.T. Realmuto this offseason — even after the recent Toronto Blue Jays spending frenzy. FanSided’s Robert Murray reported Thursday morning that the Phillies’ National League East-rival Atlanta Braves are […] Philadelphia Phillies: NL East rival vying for J.T.

Without a 2020 minor-league season, No. 26-ranked Philadelphia Phillies prospect Kendall Simmons is among the organization’s prospects currently gaining valuable plate appearances and innings in the infield, playing for the Adelaide Giants in the current Australian Baseball League season. Also, this past summer, the 20-year-old and other players — including Dylan Cease of the Chicago White Sox, AL Rookie of the Year […] Checking in on top-30 Phillies prospect Kendall Simmons - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - A Philadelphia Phillies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion...

Tommy Greene: Was he actually good?

Tommy Greene: Was he actually good?

Tommy Greene helped pitch the Phillies to the playoffs in 1993 He was big and he threw a no-hitter. But was he actually good? Every so often, I like to take a name from Phillies past and - aided by the perspective of time - try to re-evaluate whether or not the player was actually good. In some cases, I’ve determined that the player wasn’t as good as initially remembered. In other cases, I’ve decided that he was actually underrated in his day. This time, I’ll look at one of the starting pitchers from the National League champion 1993 team: Tommy Greene. Selected...

The Offseason: 1/20/2021

Photo by Denis Poroy/ More deals for relievers are being made The right handed reliever market was always going to be deep. There was no reason to jump in feet first and snatch someone up right away because bargains were going to present themselves. Outside of the Liam Hendriks deal, most of the other names to sign - Trevor May, Archie Bradley - have fallen right about where we could have expected them to sign. Kirby Yates is another one. This brings us to the Phillies. There is the possibility that they are done adding to their bullpen with guaranteed deals, but there...

Phillies scout veteran starters Anibal Sanchez, Julio Teheran

The Philadelphia Phillies are prioritizing to fill their catcher, shortstop, and bullpen voids first this offseason, but that apparently will not preclude them from looking to add starting pitching depth. After missing out on signing Jose Urena last month, the Phillies reportedly have their sights set on two other veteran right-handers.

Suddenly feeling better about the Phillies in 2021

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ With new leadership and a buyer’s market, the Phils are changing course this off-season. With a little over a month left before spring training is scheduled to begin, the Phillies have spent $6 million this off-season. If that doesn’t sound like much, you’re not wrong. Early in the off-season, owner John Middleton all but said the team was going to pull back on its payroll in 2021 because of the pandemic that affected last year’s attendance and is almost sure to affect this year’s, too. Fans weren’t happy about the...
