Brogdon landed on the 10-day injured list with right groin tightness Saturday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Brogdon had only just returned from a stint on the injured list with a strained right groin Tuesday, and the issue evidently hadn't completely healed. He looked good in his two appearances since his return, striking out five over 2.2 scoreless innings, but his season is now over. Seranthony Dominguez was recalled to take Brogdon's place in the bullpen.
Brogdon (groin) was activated off the injured list as expected Tuesday.
Brogdon will wind up missing just over two weeks with a strained right groin. He's ready to go after making just a single rehab appearance and will give the Phillies a reliable option in their bullpen, as he owns a 3.60 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the season.
Brogdon (groin) joined Triple-A Lehigh Valley for a rehab assignment Saturday and is expected to return from the injured list Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Brogdon has already missed the required 10 days while recovering from a strained groin, but he needs at least a few more days before he's cleared to return to the active roster. While he only has one save this season, he's been one of the Phillies' best relievers thus far in the second half, posting a 2.61 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 17 appearances.
Brogdon was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right groin strain Wednesday, retroactive to Sept. 13.
Brogdon pitched well recently, as he posted a 1.69 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 10.2 innings across his last 10 appearances while working mainly in lower-leverage situations. Right-hander Ramon Rosso was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take his place in the bullpen, and it's not yet clear whether Brogdon will have enough time to return in 2021.
Brogdon will start Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Kyle Gibson was slated to start Wednesday's contest, but Brogdon will instead take the mound with the Phillies apparently preparing for a potential weather delay early in the contest. Brogdon was activated from the injured list earlier in the day and figures to be limited to an inning or two.
Brogdon (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Brogdon was dealing with right elbow tightness, but he'll rejoin the Phillies' bullpen after spending just over the minimum of 10 days on the injured list. Since the start of July, the right-hander has put up a 2.45 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 11 innings across nine relief appearances.
Brogdon was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right elbow tendinitis, retroactive to July 31.
Brogdon last pitched Thursday, allowing two runs on three hits across 1.2 innings against the Nationals. The move to the injured list is retroactive to Saturday, leaving the right-hander eligible to be reinstated Aug. 10 against the Dodgers. However, it's not yet clear whether he'll need additional time to recover. Mauricio Llovera was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding roster move.
Brogdon was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.
Brogdon hit the injured list on the final day before the All-Star break but was merely there due to contact tracing and evidently didn't test positive for the virus himself. He's been a passable relief option for the Phillies this season, but his 4.19 ERA is nothing special and comes with just a 21.0 percent strikeout rate, a number which comes nowhere near his 38.6 percent strikeout rate from his 11.1-inning debut last season. Mauricio Llovera was optioned in a corresponding move.
Brogdon was placed on the COVID-19 injured list due to contact tracing, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Brogdon is in contact tracing after potentially coming into contact with Alec Bohm (COVID-19), who is the only Phillies player to test positive to this point. Assuming Brogdon continues to test negative and passes through the league's health and safety protocols, he could return shortly after the All-Star break.
Brogdon was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Brogdon was among four Phillies' players placed on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday. It's unclear what has caused the move, or how long Brogdon will be sidelined as a result.
Brogdon (5-2) struck out one across two perfect innings, earning the win Monday versus the Cubs.
Brogdon pitched the fifth and sixth innings after a somewhat short outing from starter Matt Moore. The reliever pitched well, and Philadelphia took the lead in the top of the sixth to put Brogdon in line for the win. The right-hander has been decent in a versatile role with a 4.13 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 29:12 K:BB across 32.2 innings. He's collected a save, seven holds and three blown saves, but he isn't very high in the pecking order for saves despite turmoil in the closer role for the Phillies.
Brogdon was credited with the save Saturday against the Nationals. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning and struck out two.
Brogdon only needed 14 pitches (nine strikes) to secure his first save of the season and did it in impressive fashion, striking out two of the three batters he faced -- none other than Trea Turner and Juan Soto. The 26-year-old right-hander got the save chance since the established closer, Hector Neris, was placed on the paternity list Saturday, so the former might not be tasked with picking up more save chances going forward. Jose Alvarado and Sam Coonrod could see save opportunities in the near future while Neris is unavailable, though the fact that Brogdon came through in the clutch when called upon is an encouraging sign for the future.
Brogdon (4-1) retired the only batter he faced and earned the win Friday versus Toronto.
The right-hander relieved starter Vince Velasquez with two outs in the sixth inning. Brogdon got Cavan Biggio to fly out to end the inning, and Philadelphia took the lead with a five-run rally in the top of the seventh. The 26-year-old has a 5.28 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB across 15.1 innings this year. He's given up three runs (two earned) in in 5.1 innings in May, and he typically hasn't seen much high-leverage work.
Brogdon (3-1) was dealt the loss and a blown save Tuesday against the Giants, allowing six runs on five hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning.
Brogdon entered Tuesday having pitched 6.2 scoreless innings to open the season but completely fell apart after being tasked with preserving a two-run lead, allowing a pair of three-run home runs in the eighth inning. Brogdon's unexpected collapse caused his ERA to balloon to 7.36.
Brogdon (3-0) gave up two hits and a walk while striking out two over 1.2 scoreless innings Wednesday to pick up the win in an 8-2 victory over the Mets.
The right-hander has already made three appearances in 2021 and come away with the win in each of them, as Brogdon found himself in the right place at the right time to benefit from an offensive surge by the Phillies. The 26-year-old has a 0.00 ERA and 3:1 K:BB in 3.2 innings, but the team's crowded bullpen could keep him from consistent late-inning work even if he continues to pitch well, although his fantasy value is hardly suffering in his current role.
Brogdon (2-0) earned the win Monday against the Mets, striking out one and allowing one hit in a scoreless eighth inning.
Brogdon was brought in to face the Mets' fifth, sixth and seventh hitters with a two-run deficit in the top of the eighth. He allowed a single to J.D. Davis, then got Jeff McNeil to ground into a double play and struck out James McCann. That left Brogdon as the pitcher of record when the Phillies scored five runs in the bottom half of the inning to take the lead for good. While Brogdon likely won't remain the Phillies' wins leader for too much longer, he appears to be fourth in the team's high-leverage hierarchy behind Hector Neris, Jose Alvarado and Archie Bradley, so he should continue to pitch in close games going forward.
Brogdon (1-0) picked up the win in Thursday's season opener against Atlanta, tossing a clean 10th inning.
In an oddity that can only happen in an era where teams start with a runner on second base in extras, Brogdon only faced two batters to retire the side. He shut down a pair of very good ones however, getting Freddie Freeman on a groundout before Marcell Ozuna flew out to center fielder Roman Quinn, who threw Ozzie Albies out at home for the inning-ending double play. It's notable that it was Brogdon who was called upon for the high-leverage frame after Archie Bradley, Jose Alvarado and Hector Neris had already been used. That suggests that Brogdon is fourth in the team's hierarchy -- nowhere near save chances at the moment, but within striking distance should he pitch well to open the season while the more established names ahead of him struggle.
Manager Joe Girardi said Brogdon is "fine" after a rib issue forced him to exit Sunday's spring game against the Pirates, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
It's apparently a somewhat common issue for the 26-year-old to have a rib pop out, so the rib was popped back in and he's good to go. Brogdon made his big-league debut for the Phillies last season and pitched well with a 3.97 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB over 11.1 innings.
Brogdon was removed from his relief appearance in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates due to a back injury, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
After striking out the first batter he faced, Brogdon asked out of the contest when manager Joe Girardi and a team trainer visited him on the mound. The 26-year-old can be considered day-to-day until the Phillies provide another update on his condition.
Brogdon is seen as a potential setup man by the Phillies this season, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Brogdon flashed plenty of potential during his 11.1-inning debut last season, posting a 3.97 ERA and 0.88 WHIP. His 38.6 percent strikeout rate proved to be more than enough to overcome his 11.4 percent walk rate and 36.4 percent groundball rate. Brogdon's inexperience means he's clearly behind Hector Neris and Archie Bradley in the battle for the closer job, but it's not out of the question that he could push for saves at some point if he excels while those two struggle.
