Top Phillies News

  • Phillies' Luis Ortiz: Starts rehab stint

    The Phillies assigned Ortiz (ankle) to Single-A Clearwater on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment.

    Ortiz suffered an ankle sprain in his season debut March 30 but is now ready for game action. The right-hander could make a few appearances in the minors before being cleared to join the Phillies.

  • Phillies' Taijuan Walker: Rejoining rotation Sunday

    Manager Rob Thomson said Walker (shoulder) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Sunday against the Padres, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    The veteran right-hander allowed four runs over 6.1 innings during his third minor-league rehab start Sunday, and a successful bullpen session Tuesday was his final hurdle before being cleared to return. Walker posted a 4.38 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 138:71 K:BB across 172.2 innings last season for the Phillies.

  • Phillies' Kody Clemens: Homers, doubles in season debut

    Clemens went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a double during Monday's 7-0 win over the Reds.

    Clemens filled the role of Bryce Harper (personal) rather admirably, earning the start at first base and contributing two extra-base hits. Following his double in the fourth, Clemens capped his day with a three-run homer over the wall in right center on a full count in the ninth to help rubber stamp the Phillies' win. Despite the performance, Clemens may not remain in Philly for much longer, as Harper should return from the paternity list in a few days, likely signaling Clemens' return to Triple-A.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Extends scoreless streak in win

    Suarez (4-0) earned the victory Monday, allowing two hits and one walk over seven scoreless innings against the Reds. He struck out five.

    Suarez rang up nothing but zeroes for the third consecutive start, allowing only two singles and a walk in a dominating performance against the Reds. The Phillies' southpaw earned his league-leading fourth win while extending his scoreless inning streak to 25.1 innings. The outing dropped his ERA to 1.36 with a 0.70 WHIP through 33 innings with 32 strikeouts against just five bases on balls. Next up for Suarez is a road matchup, tentatively scheduled to take place this weekend in San Diego against the Padres.

  • Phillies' Christian McGowan: Makes season debut

    McGowan struck out four and allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk over 3.2 innings Thursday for Double-A Reading after being reinstated from the development list.

    McGowan didn't open the season as a member of Reading's roster, but that was likely just an organizational decision to manage the 24-year-old right-hander's workload. He missed the majority of the 2023 campaign while completing his recovery from April 2022 Tommy John surgery.

  • Phillies' Brandon Marsh: Elevated to cleanup spot

    Marsh will start in left field and bat cleanup Monday in Cincinnati.

    With Bryce Harper (personal) landing on the paternity list Monday, Marsh will climb up in the batting order. J.T. Realmuto is sliding up one spot to Harper's usual place in the three hole, while Marsh will move into Realmuto's typical cleanup spot.

  • Phillies' Kody Clemens: Getting start at first base

    Clemens will start at first base and bat eighth in Monday's game in Cincinnati.

    After being called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley earlier in the day, Clemens will get the first chance to fill in for everyday first baseman Bryce Harper, who was placed on the paternity list. The 27-year-old Clemens received 148 plate appearances with the Phillies last season, producing a .644 OPS with four home runs. Clemens will likely be sent back down to Triple-A once Harper is ready to return later this week.

  • Phillies' Kody Clemens: Moves up to big-league roster

    The Phillies recalled Clemens from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday.

    He'll join the 26-man active roster as a replacement for Bryce Harper (personal), who was placed on the paternity list. Harper will likely remain away from the Phillies for the maximum three days to welcome in the newest addition to his family, so Clemens' stay with the big club could come to an end before the end of the week. Clemens has produced an .841 OPS over 69 plate appearances at Lehigh Valley this season.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Goes on paternity leave

    The Phillies placed Harper (personal) on the paternity list ahead of Monday's game against the Reds.

    Per MLB rules, players placed on the paternity list have to miss between one and three games, so expect Harper to take the maximum amount of time to welcome in the newest addition to his family. Harper could link back up with the Phillies in Cincinnati on Thursday for the club's series finale with the Reds. Infielder Kody Clemens was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move.

  • Phillies' Spencer Turnbull: Move to bullpen coming soon

    Phillies manager Rob Thomson implied Friday that Turnbull will likely move to the bullpen after he starts Wednesday's game in Cincinnati, MLB.com reports.

    Taijuan Walker (shoulder) tossed 6.1 innings and 102 pitches in his latest rehab start Sunday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, setting him up to return from the 15-day injured list and take back a spot in the rotation next weekend in San Diego. Rather than making room for both Walker and Turnbull and expanding the rotation to six men, the latter is poised to head to the bullpen as the Phillies look to manage his innings. Even with Turnbull's upcoming move to relief, Thomson is optimistic that the right-hander can get enough work to stay stretched out in the event a spot in the rotation opens up again. Turnbull has been tremendous thus far for any managers in deeper mixed leagues or NL-only leagues that scooped him up in the later rounds of drafts, as he's gone 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 22:7 K:BB across 22 innings.

  • Phillies' Taijuan Walker: Reaches seventh inning in rehab start

    Walker (shoulder) struck out one and allowed four earned runs on seven hits and three walks over 6.1 innings in the third start of his rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Though he's struck out just two batters while walking six over his last two rehab appearances with Lehigh Valley, Walker appears ready to return from the 15-day injured list from a workload standpoint. He tossed 102 pitches while reaching the seventh inning in Sunday's outing, making him an option to rejoin the Philadelphia rotation as soon as this upcoming weekend in San Diego if the Phillies elect to bring him back. The Phillies are expected to maintain a five-man rotation upon Walker's return, with Spencer Turnbull likely to move to the bullpen in spite of his strong start to the season (1.23 ERA, 0.77 WHIP, 22:7 K:BB in 22 innings), according to MLB.com reports.

  • Phillies' Kyle Schwarber: Blasts sixth homer

    Schwarber went 1-for-1 with three walks, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored during Sunday's 8-2 win over the White Sox.

    Schwarber reached base in each of his first four at-bats, culminating with a solo shot in the sixth, then drove in his second run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh, posting the final tally of an 8-2 triumph for the Phillies. Schwarber had been hitless in five of the previous six games coming into Sunday but each of his last three hits have now cleared the fence. The slugger lifted his average to .217 on the day and now has six homers and 11 RBI on the season.

  • Phillies' Aaron Nola: Cruises to third win

    Nola (3-1) allowed two runs on four hits and one walk over eight innings to pick up the win Sunday against the White Sox. He struck out seven.

    Nola allowed a first-inning two-run homer to Eloy Jimenez but settled in thereafter, allowing just three more baserunners over the next seven innings. This season has been a steady climb for Nola, who struggled in his first start but has worked progressively deeper into each start, culminating with his eight-inning effort Sunday. One concern for Nola moving forward is that he's already allowed six home runs this year after allowing a career-high 32 last season. The veteran righty will take a 3.16 ERA and 1.09 WHIP into his next start, tentatively scheduled to take place during a weekend set in San Diego against the Padres.

  • Phillies' Jose Alvarado: Notches one-out save

    Alvarado retired the only batter he faced to record his fourth save of the season in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

    With a 9-0 lead entering the top of the ninth inning, the Phillies were looking like they'd be able to give Alvarado the night off. However, manager Rob Thomson was forced to turn to the hard-throwing lefty after Ricardo Pinto allowed five runs and loaded the bases with two out to put the tying run at the plate. Alvarado promptly disposed of Andrew Benintendi on one pitch in inducing a game-ending groundout. The southpaw has notched each of the Phillies' last two saves and leads the club with four on the season. While Alvarado is Thompson's top option for saves, Jeff Hoffman could still see some chances on days the skipper elects to use the lefty earlier in games.
