Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Tagged with six runs
Wheeler (11-6) allowed six runs on nine hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Mets.
Wheeler had given up just five runs over his previous four starts after yielding six runs against Toronto on July 13. Most of the damage against him Sunday came during a four-run fourth inning highlighted by James McCann's two-run single. Wheeler still owns an impressive 2.92 ERA with a 142:29 K:BB through 22 starts. The 32-year-old righty is projected for a rematch with the Mets at home next week.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Corey Knebel: Suffers lat strain
Knebel could miss some time after suffering a lat strain during Sunday's loss to the Mets, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Knebel won't travel with the team for Monday's series opener in Cincinnati and will instead return to Philadelphia to undergo an MRI. The 30-year-old seems unlikely to be available for the three-game set against the Reds and may require a trip to the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Mick Abel: Receives bump to Double-A
The Phillies are promoting Abel from High-A Jersey Shore to Double-A Reading on Sunday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Abel has a 4.01 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 103:38 K:BB across 85.1 innings for Jersey Shore this year and will now move up to Reading. The soon-to-be 21-year-old is one of Philadelphia's top prospects, and it's not a major surprise the organization will give him a late-season promotion to see how he handles a higher level of competition....

Phillies' Andrew Painter: Moving up to Double-A
The Phillies are promoting Painter from High-A Jersey Shore to Double-A Reading on Sunday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
The 19-year-old, who is the Phillies' top prospect, was promoted to Jersey Shore in early June and allowed three runs over three innings during his first start, but he surrendered only one earned run with a 45:4 K:BB over his next seven outings to earn the bump up to Reading. Painter's workload has been limited for much of the season, but he pitched at least six frames in each of his last three starts at High-A. The right-hander's move to Double-A will be a significant test after dominating during his brief time in the lower minors.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Corey Knebel: Pulled with injury
Knebel was removed from Sunday's game game against the Mets with an apparent injury, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Knebel walked two batters threw only five of 14 pitches for strikes in one-third of an inning before exiting with an athletic trainer. The veteran right-hander should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Bryce Harper: Set to hit Monday
Harper (thumb) will take batting practice on the field Monday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Harper has not gotten in any cuts in an open setting since undergoing surgery on his left thumb, but he is set to do just that Monday. According to interim manager Rob Thomson, Harper is "progressing well" and is "getting closer to minor-league games.'... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Bailey Falter: Set to start next weekend
Falter is scheduled to start one of the two games in the Phillies' doubleheader against the Mets on August 20, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Falter has started seven games for the Phillies this season, and his eighth start is set to come next weekend. Falter has faced the Mets twice this season and has allowed six runs (three earned) over 5.0 innings.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Kyle Schwarber: Sitting again Sunday
Schwarber (calf) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets.
Schwarber was able to pinch hit in Saturday's game, but he is still not 100 percent and will open on the bench for a third straight day. As was the case in the last two contests, Matt Vierling will get the start in left field.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Swipes two bags
Sosa stole two bases in a 1-0 loss to the Mets on Saturday.
Sosa came on to pinch run for Rhys Hoskins in the top of the ninth with his team down by a run. He immediately stole second and then also took third on a double steal to put the winning run in scoring position after J.T. Realmuto was walked with two out. Sosa now has five stolen bases in six attempts over 141 plate appearances with a slash line of .185/.248/.269. He should continue to see pinch-running opportunities from his backup role....

Phillies' Aaron Nola: Outdueled in tough loss
Nola (8-9) gave up one earned run on four hits and a walk while striking out eight over eight innings to take the loss in a 1-0 defeat to the Mets on Saturday.
Nola performed very well in Saturday night's pitching duel with Jacob deGrom, but he was saddled with the tough loss despite giving up only one run over eight dominant innings. The only damage came on a Pete Alonso RBI single in the first to score Starling Marte, who had stolen second and advanced to third on a throwing error by the catcher. Nola is in the midst of his best season since 2018 and boasts a superb WHIP of 0.93 while striking out over a batter per inning. He is expected to make his next start in a rematch at home against the Mets.... See More ... See Less

Phillies' Kyle Schwarber: Not in Saturday's lineup
Schwarber (calf) isn't starting Saturday against the Mets.
Schwarber sustained a mild right calf strain Thursday against the Marlins, and he'll remain out of the lineup for a second consecutive game. However, he remains day-to-day and could be available to pinch hit Saturday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Matt Vierling is starting in left field and batting ninth once again....

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Turns in quality start
Suarez yielded one run on three hits and two walks over seven innings in Friday's win over the Mets. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.
Suarez gave up an RBI sacrifice fly to Mark Canha in the second inning before finishing his start with five straight scoreless frames. The 26-year-old southpaw has given up fewer than two earned runs in four of his last five starts, lowering his season ERA from 4.33 to 3.52 in the process. He's now sporting an 89:39 K:BB through 20 starts. Suarez is projected to start in Cincinnati next week.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Bryson Stott: Swipes bag, scores twice
Stott went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and a stolen base in Friday's 2-1 win over the Mets.
Batting leadoff for the first time in his MLB career, Stott produced his second career game with at least three hits. He was also hit by a pitch and managed to reach base in all four plate appearances against Max Scherzer. The rookie infielder has gone 10-for-19 (.526) with six runs scored over his last five games, raising his season slash line to .219/.282/.341.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Seranthony Dominguez: Tosses scoreless inning
Dominguez (6-3) allowed one hit and a walk in a scoreless frame to earn a win over the Mets on Friday.
Dominguez entered a 1-1 game in the ninth inning and picked up the win after the Phillies took the lead in the 10th. David Robertson picked up the save, and they each have two saves since Philadelphia acquired Robertson earlier this month. Dominguez lowered his season ERA to 1.49 with a 51:13 K:BB through 42.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' David Robertson: Notches 16th save

After Seranthony Dominguez tossed a scoreless ninth inning, Robertson finished off a 2-1 victory in the 10th. He's struck out five batters through four shutout innings since joining the Phillies, lowering his season ERA to 2.03 through 44.1 frames. For now, it appears that he and Dominguez will continue splitting save opportunities.... See More ... See Less
