Phillies' Matt Vierling: Pops first MLB homer
Vierling went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Pirates.
His first career homer in the big leagues came in the third inning off Wil Crowe, and it proved to be the game-winning hit as Ranger Suarez cruised to a shutout for the Phillies. Vierling has been a surprising contributor to the team's late-season push for the playoffs -- over the last 10 games, the 25-year-old is slashing .400/.448/.560.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Matt Vierling: Starts against lefty again
Vierling will start at first base and bat sixth Monday against the Orioles and lefty starting pitcher John Means.
Vierling will stick in the lineup for a second straight game after he went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Mets. The 25-year-old looks like he may stick in a short-side platoon role for the Phillies for the final two weeks of the season.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Matt Vierling: Recalled, starting Tuesday
Vierling was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley prior to Tuesday's game against the Nationals. He is slated to start at first base, per Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Vierling went 3-for-7 with a stolen base and a run scored during his first two stints with the Phillies in June and July. He'll man first base Tuesday with Rhys Hoskins (abdomen), J.T. Realmuto (ankle) and Luke Williams (COVID-19) all out. Vierling will also be an option to play the outfield should he remain with the big club for an extended period.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Matt Vierling: Heads back to minors
Vierling was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Vierling was up as the extra man for Friday's doubleheader against the Marlins. He struck out in his lone at-bat and will head back to Triple-A for now, but he should remain one of the Phillies' top options the next time they need another outfielder.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Matt Vierling: Up as extra man
Vierling was called up by the Phillies to serve as the 27th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Marlins.
Vierling will likely serve as a bench bat for the day before heading back to the minors. He made his big-league debut in mid-June and went 3-for-6 in a brief cameo. The 24-year-old was excellent in 24 games for Double-A Reading this season, posting a 1.065 OPS, but he owns a .581 OPS in 18 games for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Matt Vierling: Optioned to Triple-A
Vierling was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Vierling joined the major-league roster for the first time after his contract was selected by the Phillies the previous Saturday, and he went 3-for-6 with a run, a stolen base and two strikeouts while serving mainly in a depth role. He'll now head back to the minors to make room for right-hander Enyel De Los Santos on the 26-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Matt Vierling: Contract selected by Phillies
Vierling's contract was selected by the Phillies on Saturday.
The 24-year-old outfielder struggled to a .232/.297/.329 slash line in a full season at High-A Clearwater in 2019 and didn't get the chance to turn things around last year due to the canceled minor-league season, so he's understandably not high on prospect lists. He's looked far better in 27 games at the two highest levels of the minors this season, however, hitting .354/.426/.616 with six homers and five steals while making the majority of his starts in center field. Expectations should be modest given how small that sample is and given his lack of prospect pedigree, but it's possible he's turning into at least a useful part-time player. That looks to be the role available for him for now, as it's Matt Joyce (back) who will land on the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
