Kendrick might get back to basics tonight, plus rehab updates

Tuesday, April 20, 2010, 3:23 PM
Given Kyle Kendrick's performance through two starts, you might have already decided that his solid showing in spring training was little more than a mirage. But the improvements that Kendrick displayed in spring training are very real -- he threw his off-speed pitches for strikes, avoided solid contact... Read more

Happ to miss next start; immediate future TBD

Monday, April 19, 2010, 3:04 PM
The positive news for J.A. Happ is that he will accompany the Phillies to Atlanta, and the team is confident enough in his sore left elbow that it has announced plans for him to throw off the mound in a bullpen session on Thursday afternoon. Beyond that, his status is like that of many an injured... Read more

Happ's forearm tightness deserves caution

Monday, April 19, 2010, 3:03 PM
Two of the most important lessons I have learned in my time covering professional baseball: 1) When it comes to injuries, the public is on a need-to-know basis, and nine times out of tend the club does not think you need to know. This is not a criticism of the Phillies, their players, or professional... Read more

No decision yet on Happ's status

Sunday, April 18, 2010, 1:17 PM
Lefthander J.A. Happ will throw on the side at Citizens Bank Park tomorrow afternoon before the team leaves for Atlanta. How he fares during that session will determine whether he'll be placed on the disabled list with forearm tightness. Manager Charlie Manuel said this morning that, because of the... Read more

Happ's arm and Hamels' cutter

Friday, April 16, 2010, 1:00 PM
Disclaimer: It's early. The Phillies are 7-2. And before their melt-down against the Nationals yesterday, they led the National League with a 2.90 ERA. Roy Halladay is still pitching every five days, starting tonight. Joe Blanton and his six or seven innings per start could be back by the end of the... Read more

A slight, but interesting, rotation shift

Thursday, April 15, 2010, 12:09 AM
Even before Kyle Kendrick allowed six runs in 1.2 innings Wednesday night in a 14-7 win over the Nationals, the Phillies made a barely-perceptible, yet highly-interesting shift in their rotation that gives them plenty of flexibility in the coming week. And while manager Charlie Manuel brushed off a... Read more

Werth out of line-up, Dobbs in

Wednesday, April 14, 2010, 3:34 PM
Looks like Jayson Werth's sore left hip will sideline him for tonight. Greg Dobbs is starting in right field and batting fifth tonight against righthander Craig Stammen and the Nationals. We'll get an update from the Phillies or Werth himself shortly, but the fact that the club called up middle infielder... Read more

Rollins on DL; Manuel: "He's hurt pretty bad"

Wednesday, April 14, 2010, 1:38 PM
Update: Jimmy Rollins has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, the Phillies announced today. Infielder Wilson Valdez had his contract selected from Triple A Lehigh Valley. Rollins' DL stint is retroactive to April 13. An MRI exam yesterday revealed that Rollins has a Grade 1/Grade 2 strain of... Read more

Updated: Rollins' fate won't be decided until tomorrow

Tuesday, April 13, 2010, 5:37 PM
Updated: 7:01 p.m. -- Any decision on Jimmy Rollins' future will not be made until tomorrow, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said in a statement released by the team. The shortstop had an MRI on his strained calf earlier this afteroon, but Amaro said the team will delay a decision on a disabled list... Read more

Nothing imminent with Pedro

Tuesday, April 13, 2010, 12:39 PM
You've read this several times over the past couple months, but in light of an ESPN Deportes story that has gained some traction, it bears repeating. The Phillies and Pedro Martinez are not close to an agreement that would bring the veteran righthander back to the Phillies. The two sides have maintained... Read more
