2022 player report card: Nick Maton

Photo by Megan Briggs/ The kid who has the NL Cy Young’s number A member of the 2022 Phillies Day Care, Nick Maton provided plenty of memorable moments on and off the field in 2022. However, his sophomore season in the bigs did not start so smooth for the young middle infielder. The 25-year-old started the season in the minors, stuck behind Johan Camargo and Didi Gregorius as the two veterans stumbled. Maton finally received a chance in the majors in early June, but that was short lived as he injured his shoulder soon after. Following up his debut, Maton spent the...

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Steaks for everyone! More slow news days, which isn’t helped by the lack of rumors surrounding the team. They have always been pretty airtight when it comes to their choices of pursuit, even with a new regime in charge. You don’t hear much about them unless it’s just before a move happens. Bryce Harper was the exception since his free agency was one to truly behold, but otherwise it’s always been pretty quiet. We usually just follow this rule: unless Salisbury talks about it, don’t put much stock in it. On to the...

REPORT: Bryce Harper has Tommy John surgery

Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports It was probably inevitable It’s the news we kind of expected, yet are finally relieved to hear. According to a person with knowledge of the situation, Bryce Harper had Tommy John surgery today and it went "very well." Could be back hitting competitively by mid-May.— Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyNBCS) November 23, 2022 So now we know. No more speculation about how bad the injury was. We know it was bad enough that he needed the full Tommy John surgery and not the internal brace repair (at least according to this). What does this mean...

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports The title is a stretch, I know, but they might be able to peddle some arms for the Phillies In the offseason, you’ll see a lot of pieces written by the national writers about how a certain team has a plethora of options available to help other teams looking to match up in a deal.

For Ken Rosenthal, he has...
