  • Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Takes loss in save chance

    Nicasio (0-2) blew the save and was handed the loss after allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over two-third of an inning Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Nicasio entered with a 2-1 lead but had runners on second and third before he was able to record an out. The 32-year-old had the chance to secure saves on back-to-back days in the Windy City, but couldn't close the deal. The two save chances were Nicasio's first two of the season, as he now has a 4.09 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and 20:11 K:BB through 22 innings.

  • Phillies' Zach Eflin: Labors through quality start

    Eflin allowed one run on six hits and four walks over six innings during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Cubs. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.

    Eflin issued his highest walk total of the season but managed to work his way out of trouble all game long, limiting the Cubs to just the one run. The right-hander was set up to earn his sixth victory, but Juan Nicasio was unable to close the door during the ninth inning. Eflin has a 2.76 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 47:13 K:BB through 10 starts and lines up to pitch Sunday at Milwaukee.

  • Phillies' Dylan Cozens: Undergoes season-ending surgery

    Cozens underwent season-ending foot surgery, Tom Housenick of the Morning Call reports.

    Cozens has so far failed to establish himself at the big-league level, hitting .154 with a 53.3 percent strikeout rate in 45 plate appearances. He hit .167/.333/.462 with six homers and five steals in 23 games with Triple-A Lehigh Valley before getting shut down. His time in the Phillies organization could be over.

  • Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Platoon setup continues

    Herrera will sit Tuesday against lefty Jose Quintana against the Cubs.

    Herrera has sat against all four lefties the Phillies have faced since he returned from the injured list. A platoon setup didn't make a ton of sense when it was Phil Gosselin entering the lineup in his place, but it does seem more reasonable as a way to get Scott Kingery in the lineup now that the utility man has returned from his hamstring injury. Herrera's career platoon split isn't particularly large but does still exist, as he owns a 91 wRC+ against lefties and a 107 mark against righties.

  • Phillies' Seranthony Dominguez: Gives up go-ahead run

    Dominguez gave up three runs (two earned) on two walks and a hit Monday against the Cubs, striking out one batter over two innings.

    Dominguez retired the top of the Cubs' lineup in order in the seventh inning but fell apart when asked to handle a second frame. He walked the first two batters he faced in the eighth and allowed both to score on a Daniel Descalso triple. Descalso scored himself after Jean Segura's throw hit him in the foot and bounced into the dugout as he slid for third, giving the Cubs the lead, but the Phillies' offense bailed Dominguez out in the top of the ninth. Notably, Monday's outing was the first in which Dominguez has recorded more than three outs this season, suggesting he may not be asked to do so again for a while. The 24-year-old has lost all his fantasy relevance from last season as he's not being tasked with save opportunities or a heavy workload and has a 5.03 ERA.

  • Phillies' Cesar Hernandez: Grabs three hits in win

    Hernandez went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI in Monday's extra-innings victory over the Cubs.

    Hernandez gave the Phillies the lead with a two-run triple in the top of the sixth inning, his second triple of the season. The second baseman appears to be bouncing back from a slightly disappointing 2018 season at the plate, hitting .310/.375/.474 through 46 games.

  • Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Plays hero in 10th

    Realmuto went 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored, two RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Cubs.

    His RBI single in the sixth inning got the Phillies on the board, then his solo shot off Ken Ryan in the 10th gave them the win. Realmuto has been as advertised in his first season with Philly, slashing .277/.333/.453 through 44 games with six homers and 29 RBI.

  • Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Picks up extra-inning save

    Nicasio allowed a hit in two-thirds of an inning to record his first save of the season in Monday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Cubs.

    Seranthony Dominguez blew the lead in the eighth inning and Hector Neris worked a scoreless ninth with the game tied, leaving Adam Morgan and Nicasio to close things out after J.T. Realmuto launched a solo shot in the top of the 10th. The veteran right-hander hasn't given up an earned run since April 19, and the stretch of success has moved him into a more high-leverage role in Gabe Kapler's bullpen -- he notched his second hold of the season Sunday. Nicasio now sports a 3.32 ERA and 20:9 K:BB through 21.2 innings on the season.

  • Phillies' Jake Arrieta: Delivers quality start

    Arrieta didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Cubs, allowing one run on eight hits and two walks over six innings while striking out four.

    The veteran right-hander left the game in line for his fifth win of the season, but Seranthony Dominguez blew the lead in the eighth inning. Arrieta has been his usual reliable self so far, providing seven quality starts in 10 trips to the mound, and he'll take a 3.77 ERA and 51:25 K:BB through 62 innings into his next outing Saturday in Milwaukee.

  • Phillies' Roman Quinn: Cleared for on-field BP

    Quinn (groin) will take on-field batting practice Friday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

    This is a step in the right direction for Quinn, who has been sidelined since April 25 with a Grade 2 right groin strain, though he remains without a timetable for his return. Once healthy, Quinn is expected to abandon switch hitting and become a purely right-handed hitter.

  • Phillies' Vince Velasquez: Two bullpens on tap

    Velasquez (forearm) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

    Velasquez has been sidelined since May 11 with a strained right forearm. The right-hander threw with no issues Monday, and assuming everything goes off without a hitch during Wednesday's mound session, he'll be cleared to throw another bullpen Friday before being reevaluated.

  • Phillies' Victor Arano: Suffers setback

    Arano (elbow) will receive a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

    Arano has been sidelined since April 20 with an elbow issue. The right-hander apparently felt renewed discomfort during a recent bullpen session, prompting the Phillies to send him for further evaluation. It remains to be seen how this setback will affect Arano's return date, but an updated timeline for his return will hopefully come into focus following his visit with Dr. ElAttrache.

  • Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Pinch-hit homer

    Realmuto recorded a two-run home run as a pinch hitter Sunday against the Rockies.

    Realmuto pinch hit for Edgar Garcia in the sixth inning and made the most of the opportunity, clubbing a two-run homer to knot the game at 5-5. It was his fifth homer of the season, but his first since April 26. He's now hitting .273/.331/.435 across 172 plate appearances for the season.
