Phillies' Zach Eflin: Will return to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies are listing Eflin as their probable starter for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

Eflin was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following his start in the second game of a doubleheader Aug. 16, but the move was strictly procedural with the right-hander serving as the Phillies' 26th man for the twin bill. The 24-year-old will rejoin Philadelphia on Wednesday when first eligible to do so and make his normal turn in the rotation, enabling the Phillies to get by without having to add another starter to the mix. He'll oppose Stephen Strasburg (neck) in the divisional matchup.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Tingling sensation lingering
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (lat) is still experiencing a tingling sensation in his fingers while he pitches, The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

The sensation had caused him to get shut down twice earlier in the season, though he's pitching through it this time after a mid-July cortisone shot lessened its impact. The issue is caused by the median nerve in his right wrist being compressed -- also known as carpal tunnel syndrome. Despite the issue, Eickhoff hopes to return in September, potentially in a bullpen capacity. He'll be reexamined in the offseason and may require surgery at that point.

Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Added as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knapp was added as the Phillies' 26th man for Sunday's Little League Classic against the Mets, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Both sides will get an extra player with the game being played in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. It's unlikely the Phillies will need to keep a third catcher around for more than a day, so expect Knapp to head back to the minors after the game.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Two Triple-A starts planned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (lat) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Lehigh Valley Sunday and then another one Friday or Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Eickhoff has been out all year after suffering multiple setbacks while recovering from a preseason lat strain which was initially described as mild. He appears to be finally nearing a return to Philadelphia, as he's expected to throw 75 pitches Sunday, nearly a full starters' workload, putting him on track to return in early September. Exactly what role he'll be in when he returns is not clear. He was projected as a mid-rotation starter for the Phillies before the start of the season, but Nick Pivetta, Vince Velasquez and Zach Eflin have pitched well enough that they seem to have the last three spots in the rotation locked down.

Phillies' Asdrubal Cabrera: Plates run vs. Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's victory over New York.

Cabrera handed his ballclub an early 1-0 lead in the first inning by doubling home a run. The 32-year-old has already recorded a more productive season in 2018 compared to a year ago, as he's driven in 66 and homered 20 times (116 games) compared to 59 RBI and 14 homers in 2017. Cabrera owns a .269/.322/.473 slash line with a month and a half left in the regular season.
