Phillies' Rafael Marchan: Launches first career homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marchan got the start in the second game of Friday's doubleheader sweep of the Blue Jays, going 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a second run scored.

Remarkably, it was the 21-year-old's first professional homer at any level. Marchan's opportunities to contribute should dry up as soon as J.T. Realmuto (hip) is able to play again, but the rookie was at least able to make an impact when he got the chance.

Phillies' Rafael Marchan: Joins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies selected Marchan's contract from their alternate training site ahead of the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Marlins.

Philadelphia is in need of a healthy backstop with J.T. Realmuto (hip) unavailable for either end of the doubleheader, so Marchan will make the jump to the majors without having ever appearaed above the High-A level. Andrew Knapp, who worked behind the plate in the Phillies' 2-1 loss in the first game of the twin bill, will achieve the rare feat of making two starts at catcher in a doubleheader, as he's in the lineup again for Game 2. The Phillies may not be keen on having Knapp catch all seven innings of the contest, however, so Marchan could be summoned off the bench for his MLB debut at some point during the game.

Phillies' Rafael Marchan: Placed on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marchan was added to Philadelphia's 60-man player pool and placed on the injured list Thursday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Marchan is sidelined with what manager Joe Girardi referred to as a "medical issue." The backstop spent 2019 in the lower minors and isn't expected to make his big-league debut during the abbreviated 2020 campaign.

Phillies' Rafael Marchan: Impresses manager
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marchan earned rave reviews from manager Joe Girardi following Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Girardi called Marchan the "block master" and also praised his arm during an in-game interview. Marchan hasn't played above the High-A level and struggled to a .231/.291/.282 line there in 22 games for Clearwater, so he's unlikely to be considered for a big-league job any time soon. The 20-year-old has good contact ability, with a career .285 average and a 9.3 percent strikeout rate in four minor-league seasons, but he's yet to hit a professional home run. He profiles as a defense-first backup.
