  • Phillies' Justin Bour: Outrighted from 40-man roster

    Bour was cast off the 40-man roster and outrighted to the minors Wednesday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Bour is now available to be claimed off waivers after the Phillies elected to free up his 40-man spot for a younger prospect they want to protect ahead of the Rule 5 draft. The first baseman was traded to Philadelphia from Miami in mid-August, and wound up slashing just .224/.296/.347 with one home run and five RBI in his brief time on the diamond (49 plate appearances) with his new team. A disabled list stint due to an oblique injury didn't help matters, but Bour was barely utilized in Philadelphia, only making a handful of starts in his month-and-a-half stay. In 2017, Bour hit .289 with a .902 OPS, 25 home runs and 83 RBI, so he has the potential to to be a strong left-handed bat for a team in need. In the event that Bour clears waivers, expect him to reject an outright assignment to the minors and choose to become a free agent.

  • Phillies' Pedro Florimon: Cast off 40-man roster

    Florimon was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday, Todd Zolecki of reports.

    The 31-year-old utility man will remain in Philadelphia's organization after passing through waivers untouched. Florimon appeared in just 50 games for the Phillies in 2018 due to a broken foot, hitting .225/.276/.423 across 76 plate appearances when healthy.

  • Phillies' Alec Bohm: Working on defense

    Bohm spent his time in the instructional league working on his defense, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

    Bohm hit a mediocre .252/.335/.324 in 40 games split across the three lowest levels of the minors in an injury-shortened first professional season. His bigger problems came on the defensive side of the ball, where he committed 10 errors and posted an .884 fielding percentage. That adds to the already-significant concerns that he'll be able to stick at third base, as only two players (Kris Bryant and Troy Glaus) 6-foot-5 or taller have ever played 200 games at the position in the majors. Bohm's bat obviously becomes less exciting at first base, though pre-draft evaluations suggested that it's strong enough to profile there as well.

  • Phillies' Sixto Sanchez: Won't throw in Arizona Fall League

    Sanchez won't pitch in the Arizona Fall League due to right collarbone soreness, Michael Avallone of reports.

    Sanchez was expected to toss some innings during the offseason after starting just eight games in the minor leagues this season due to elbow inflammation, but he'll be shut down after experiencing another minor setback. The Phillies aren't overly concerned about the issue and expect their No. 1 prospect to be ready for the start of spring training.

  • Phillies' Jose Bautista: Collects two steals in finale

    Bautista went 2-for-3 with a walk, two stolen bases and two runs Sunday in the Phillies' 3-1 win over the Braves.

    Making perhaps his final MLB appearance, the 37-year-old started in right field and turned in just his second multi-hit performance of September. Perhaps more surprising was Bautista's activity on the bases, as he had tallied only two stolen bases on the season entering Sunday's contest. Bautista hasn't indicated whether he intends to play in 2019, but he will likely have to settle for a minor-league deal this winter if he elects to keep his career going.

  • Phillies' Seranthony Dominguez: Tallies 16th save

    Dominguez fired a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts to record the save in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Braves.

    Dominguez finished the season with saves on back-to-back days and he allowed only one hit over his last six appearances. The 23-year-old ended the season with a 2.95 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and 74:22 K:BB over 58 innings while converting 16 of 20 save opportunities.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Throws three solid innings

    Suarez allowed one run on one hit and two walks over three innings during Sunday's 3-1 win over the Braves. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

    Suarez likely would have been afforded a longer lease at a different point in the season, but he likely had a limited pitch count since he hadn't been used as a starter since joining the Phillies at the start of September. The 23-year-old had two unimpressive starts earlier in the season, but allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits across his two September appearances (six innings).
