  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Surrenders three runs in two frames

    Falter got a no-decision in Sunday's 5-4 loss to Miami, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk in two innings. He failed to record a strikeout.

    Making his first career start, Falter permitted three straight hits and two runs to open the bottom of the first and another run in the second before departing having thrown just 30 pitches. Fortunately for the 24-year-old, Philadelphia tied the score at 3-3 in the third to get Falter off the hook for the loss. The rookie concludes the 2021 campaign with a 2-1 record in 22 games with a 5.61 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 34:6 K:BB in 33.2 innings pitched.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Starting season finale

    Falter will start Sunday's game against the Marlins, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Falter has made 12 appearances out of the bullpen for Philadelphia since being activated from the COVID-19 injured list in mid-August, and he'll now receive his first MLB start in the season finale. The left-hander made six starts at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season, but he hasn't covered more than three frames in an outing since mid-June. Falter may pitch as long as he can Sunday, though he's unlikely to have the workload of a traditional starter given his lack of buildup.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Struggles versus Colorado

    Falter (2-1) took the loss Friday versus Colorado, allowing three runs on two hits and two walks while recording just one out via strikeout.

    After a perfect inning from opening pitcher Sam Coonrod, Falter was unable to keep things in order on the mound. He threw just 16 of 30 pitches for strikes in a brutal appearance. Falter has a 5.86 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 33:4 K:BB across 27.2 innings in 17 games this year. He's added three holds, but with poor ratios, he's best suited to low-leverage work for now.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Activated from COVID-19 IL

    The Phillies reinstated Falter (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.

    As expected, the lefty reliever rejoins the Phillies after being on the virus-related IL since July 20. Falter has a 4.50 ERA in 18 relief innings with the big-league club this season and may get some middle-innings work Saturday with Matt Moore starting.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Slated to return Saturday

    Falter (illness) will be reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Falter made a rehab appearance at Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday and allowed a hit and no walks while striking out two in a scoreless inning. The southpaw has been on the COVID-19 IL since mid-July but will be available out of the bullpen Saturday against the Reds.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Requires rehab assignment

    Falter was cleared Saturday to return from the COVID-19 injured list but will need a rehab assignment, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer of reports.

    Falter's most recent appearance was July 18, and before that July 10, so he needs a bit of minor-league work before rejoining the Phillies. It's unclear exactly when he'll be activated, but his rehab assignment doesn't figure to last more than a few games.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Placed on COVID-19 IL

    Falter was placed on the COVID-19 injured list prior to Tuesday's game, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Falter is joined by JD Hammer as the new additions on the Phillies' list of players ineligible due to COVID-19 protocols. It's not clear at this point whether Falter has tested positive for the virus, so it remains to be seen how long he'll be sidelined.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Back from injured list

    Falter was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

    Falter hit the injured list on the final day before the break, but he was merely out due to contact tracing and never tested positive for the virus himself, so it's no surprise to see him back so soon. He's been largely effective in a multi-inning relief role outside of a five-run blowup against the Cubs in early July, as his 4.58 ERA comes with a very encouraging 20:1 K:BB in 17.2 innings.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Lands on COVID-19 IL

    Falter was placed on the COVID-19 injured list prior to Sunday's game against Boston.

    Falter is among four Phillies that landed on the COVID-19 list Sunday, a list that also included Sunday's probable starting pitcher Aaron Nola. It's not clear at this point if Falter tested positive for the virus or if he's out because of health and safety protocols. The southpaw's post All-Star-break status should become clearer as the week progresses.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: No positive COVID test

    Falter was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday due to contact tracing, but he has not tested positive, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Falter was placed on the injured list after potentially being a close contact to Alec Bohm (COVID-19), the only Phillies player to have tested positive to this point. If he continues to test negative and takes the other required steps to work through the league's health and safety protocols, Falter could return shortly after the All-Star break.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Excels in bulk relief

    Falter struck out six while allowing a run on two hits and a walk over four innings of relief Monday in the Phillies' 12-4 loss to the Reds.

    For the second time in his four appearances since receiving a call-up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on June 14, Falter worked as a bulk reliever behind starter Spencer Howard. The 24-year-old lefty was once again the more effective pitcher of the two, as Howard gave up two runs on four hits and two walks over 2.1 innings before giving way to Falter. Though Falter appeared on track to earn his first big-league win after departing with the Phillies up 4-2, reliever Neftali Feliz squandered the lead when he served up a grand slam to Nick Castellanos. Falter could be used as a piggyback reliever once again Saturday in San Diego, when Matt Moore will make a second turn through the rotation.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Called up as expected

    Falter was called up as expected ahead of Monday's game against the Dodgers, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    The lefty is expected to follow right-handed starter Spencer Howard on Monday, as Howard has yet to throw more than four innings this season. Falter allowed two runs in two innings of work in his big-league debut back in April but has pitched very well in six starts and one relief appearance for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, cruising to a 1.82 ERA and a 36.2 percent strikeout rate.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Provides bulk relief after call-up

    Falter pitched three scoreless innings in long relief Monday against the Dodgers, allowing just one hit and striking out a batter.

    Falter was called up ahead of Monday's game and was expected to pitch due to Spencer Howard's lack of ability to go deep into games. He was roughed up for two runs on four hits over two innings in his MLB debut in April but was quite impressive in this one against one of the better lineups in baseball. It's unclear whether the Phillies plan to send him back down to Triple-A Lehigh Valley; manager Joe Girardi may want to continue to experiment with the tandem of him and Howard.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Call-up coming Monday

    The Phillies are expected to recall Falter from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of Monday's series opener in Los Angeles against the Dodgers, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    According to Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Phillies are expected to deploy Falter as a "piggyback" pitcher behind Monday's starter, Spencer Howard, who hasn't covered more than four innings in any of his three starts to date. A tandem-starter arrangement between Howard and Falter could serve to maximize the effectiveness of both pitchers while also keeping their innings in check over the course of the season. Like Howard, Falter is one of the more prized young arms in the organization, and he proved worthy of a stiffer test after a strong start to the season at Triple-A. Through his seven outings at Lehigh Valley, Falter posted a 1.82 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and a 42:8 K:BB in 29.2 innings.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Sent back to secondary site

    Falter was sent back to the team's alternate site Monday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Falter got to make his major-league debut Sunday but had to do so at Coors Field. He gave up two runs on four hits in two innings of work. He could be back up when the Phillies need another lefty later in the season but will make way for Jose Alvarado, who returned from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Gets call-up

    The Phillies recalled Falter from their alternate site Tuesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Philadelphia will exchange one left-handed reliever for another, as Falter replaces Cristopher Sanchez, who was optioned to the alternate site following Monday's 2-0 loss to the Giants. Expect Falter to work mostly in low-leverage spots for the duration of his stay with the big club.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Sent to minor-league camp

    Falter was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Falter was added to the Phillies' 40-man roster during the offseason and spent the start of spring training with the major-league coaching staff. He made one relief appearance in early March and gave up two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two over one inning.
