Phillies' Aaron Nola: Improved mechanics leading to increased velocity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillies pitching coach Bob McClure credits Nola's fastball velocity increase this season to improved pitching mechanics, Matt Gelb of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Nola tweaked his mechanics in the offseason to use his legs more, which helped take some stress off his arm and allows him to add a little more velocity. Last year, he averaged 90.7 mph with his fastball, but has bumped that up to 92 mph this season. Opponents have hit just .226 with a .384 slugging percentage against the fastball this year after teeing off on the pitch last season when Nola dealt with elbow problems. The 2014 first-round pick is 4-3 with a 2.65 ERA and a 59:16 K:BB in 54.1 innings since the beginning of June. He faces the Brewers at home on Friday.

Phillies' Daniel Nava: Four hits Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nava went 4-for-5 with two RBI and a walk in a 10-3 win over the Marlins on Wednesday.

Nava could see a short-term increase in playing time with Aaron Altherr (hamstring) sidelined. However, Howie Kendrick (hamstring) could be back from the disabled list as soon as this weekend, which will impact Nava's at-bats. The Phillies are likely to play Kendrick fairly regularly in the outfield for the remainder of the month in order to showcase him for a trade. Nava is also a trade candidate thanks to his solid performance in a part-time role this season.

Phillies' Nick Williams: Bashes two triples in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams went 2-for-4 with two triples, two RBI and two runs scored in the Phillies' 10-3 victory over the Marlins on Wednesday.

Williams has been on fire lately, as Wednesday marked the fourth game in a row in which he recorded an extra-base hit. The outfield prospect now possesses a .963 OPS in his inaugural big-league season, a figure that very well could keep him in the lineup as a regular even when Howie Kendrick (hamstring) and Aaron Altherr (hamstring) return from their respective injuries.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Tallies first win since July 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (3-5) picked up the win Wednesday against the Marlins, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk in 5.1 innings of work. He struck out four.

Pivetta was touched up twice for home runs, as both Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich took him out of the park. Outside of that, the 24-year-old ran into relatively little trouble, with the only other run scoring due to a pair of wild pitches on his part. He also filled the zone well, tossing 64 of his 95 pitches for strikes. This was a good bounce-back outing after serving up nine runs in his previous start, allowing him to lower his ERA to 5.58. He'll look to continue his winning ways in his next start Tuesday against the Astros.

Phillies' Aaron Altherr: Will miss 3-4 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altherr will be out for three or four weeks after an MRI exam revealed a more severe injury to his hamstring, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Phillies had been hopeful Altherr would miss just 10 days after being placed on the DL earlier this week, but it doesn't appear he'll be back until sometime in mid-August. The 26-year-old suffered the strain during last Friday's game against the Brewers, putting a damper on what has been a breakout season at the plate. After hitting just .202 over 57 games last season, he's slashing .288/.359/.539 this year with 14 home runs and 44 RBI. Nick Williams and Daniel Nava will continue seeing plenty of opportunities in Altherr's absence, though the outfield situation could be getting a bit crowded, as Howie Kendrick (hamstring) is set to return from the DL within the next week.
