Lidge has elbow soreness

Tuesday, September 7, 2010, 11:41 PM
With a one-run lead Tuesday, Charlie Manuel stuck with his setup man, Ryan Madson, for the ninth even though the righthander had already pitched in the eighth. That's because Phillies closer Brad Lidge wasn't available. Following the 8-7 victory over Florida, Manuel revealed Lidge has had soreness... Read more

Brown scratched with tight quad

Tuesday, September 7, 2010, 6:10 PM
Well, Charlie Manuel's original plan was to sit Jayson Werth for a second straight game and play Domonic Brown in back-to-back games for the first time since Aug. 10-11. But about two hours prior to first pitch, Brown was scratched with tightness in his right quad. He will see a doctor later Tuesday... Read more

Brown, Mathieson named top minor-leaguers

Tuesday, September 7, 2010, 4:54 PM
Outfielder Domonic Brown and righthander Scott Mathieson were named winners of the annual Paul Owens Award for best player and pitcher, respectively, in the Phillies' minor-league system. Both players are currently on the Phillies' big-league roster. It's the fourth time in the 25 years the award... Read more

No decision on Kendrick

Tuesday, September 7, 2010, 4:47 PM
Rich Dubee said he's thought about it. But he hasn't talked about it. So for now, the Phillies are noncommittal on whether Kyle Kendrick or Vance Worley will make the next turn in the rotation when the fifth starter spot comes up Saturday at New York. "We have time," Dubee said. The pitching... Read more

Zagurski latest addition; Mayberry likely to be the final one

Monday, September 6, 2010, 1:56 PM
Mike Zagurski became the latest minor-league addition to the Phillies' roster Monday morning and he will be the final pitcher recalled from triple-A Lehigh Valley. With the Phillies' 40-man roster full, it appears as if the only remaining move will be the addition of IronPigs outfielder John Mayberry... Read more

Struggling Rollins to hit fifth in Game 2

Monday, September 6, 2010, 6:33 PM
Shortstop Jimmy Rollins did not start the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Florida Marlins and he's batting fifth in the second game. Rollins is in a prolonged slump after entering the Phillies' 7-1 first-game loss as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning, he was hitless in two at-bats,... Read more

Looks like Worley for Monday

Friday, September 3, 2010, 7:50 PM
Prior to Friday's game, Charlie Manuel said the team hadn't decided on a second starter for Monday's doubleheader against Florida. "We don't know exactly who it is yet," he said. But hours later, a giant hint was dropped. Righthander Vance Worley started for triple-A Lehigh Valley and was... Read more

Minor league pitcher receives drug suspension

Friday, September 3, 2010, 3:37 PM
Righthander Alvaro Bacil, a Phillies' farmhand, was suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball on Friday for testing positive for a performance-enchancing substance. Bacil pitched for the organization's Dominican summer league team. The 19-year-old was 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA and two saves. He tested... Read more

Gload, Dobbs return

Friday, September 3, 2010, 3:07 PM
As the Phillies return home for a six-game homestand, they have added two players to the roster. Ross Gload was activated from the disabled list and Greg Dobbs' contract was purchased. The active roster sits at 28, with more additions likely to come when the triple-A season ends Monday. Gload played... Read more

No Monday starter yet

Thursday, September 2, 2010, 6:12 PM
DENVER -- At least it's not snowing this time. The Phillies will spend less than 24 hours here to make up a game that was postponed twice in May because of rain and snow. I'm guessing the crowd here won't be a record-breaker. The stretch of 24 games in 23 days continues and Monday is a doubleheader... Read more
