Manuel talks about benching Rollins

Thursday, August 30, 2012, 3:50 PM
It was just two weeks ago that Charlie Manuel met with Jimmy Rollins about his failure to run out a groundball against the Marlins. So when the manager saw Rollins give less than full effort on a pop fly that was dropped by Mets pitcher Jon Niese in the sixth inning on Thursday, he took the next step... Read more

Polanco on moving from 2B to 3B

Thursday, August 30, 2012, 11:49 AM
Placido Polanco signed a three-year, $18 million contract to be the Phillies third baseman three winters ago. It was somewhat interesting because Polanco had made just five starts at third base since 2004 and none after 2005. Polanco had also won a pair of Gold Gloves as a second baseman with the...

Cloyd earns another start

Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 10:53 PM
Tyler Cloyd strode into the Phillies clubhouse with a smile as wide as a locker stall. The 25-year-old righthander had been standing on the field inside of an empty Citizens Bank Park, snapping photographs with his wife. Back home in Nebraska, the rest of his family gathered at a sports bar to watch... Read more

Utley exploring possibility of move to third base

Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 4:18 PM
A few days ago, Chase Utley approached Ruben Amaro Jr. and asked the Phillies general manager whether he thought playing some third base in the future was realistic. Amaro's response? I don't know, which pretty much mirrors Utley's mindset on the matter. But both sides are open to exploring the possibility... Read more

Worley out for remainder of season

Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 2:48 PM
Well, apparently Tyler Cloyd won't have to audition for a September spot in the Phillies rotation after all. Vance Worley was placed on the 15-day disbaled list this afternoon. Worley, who has been pitching with loose bodies in his elbow since landing on the DL for the first time in mid-May, will... Read more

Cloyd called up. Could he be here to stay?

Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 12:12 PM
The Phillies announced this morning that Cole Hamels will not take the mound at Citizens Bank tonight against the Mets, as originally scheduled. Hamels has a stomach illness. Pithcing in his place will be 25-year-old righthander Tyler Cloyd. Since Hamels will almost certainly be plugged back into... Read more

Vance Worley will start tonight. But why?

Tuesday, August 28, 2012, 5:36 PM
It's been three weeks since Kyle Kendrick took the mound against the Atlanta Braves and got knocked around, igniting the most recent starting rotation controversy. Fans called for Kendrick, who had been in the midst of a strong run as a reliever, to move back to the bullpen and for the Phils to replace... Read more

Brown Out. Again.

Sunday, August 26, 2012, 12:21 PM
After the Phils traded Hunter Pence and Shane Victorino, the only constant in the new-look outfield was Domonic Brown. Whether in left or right, Brown was an everyday fixture in the lineup. Until this weekend, at least. Brown, who has been plagued with injuries in the last three years, was out of... Read more

Phillies place Schneider on DL. Again.

Friday, August 24, 2012, 5:17 PM
Brian Schneider quietly returned from the disabled list on July 31, the day the Phils made a massive roster makeover, with Hunter Pence and Shane Victorino being shipped out west. Brian Schneider went back on the DL Friday. The veteran backup catcher, who was sidelined for a month with a right ankle... Read more
