5/29/2015 | Phillies promote top prospect Crawford to Double-A

As of Friday night, J.P. Crawford is one step closer to his future. After blazing through High-A ball, the 20-year-old shortstop prospect has been promoted to Double-A Reading, effective immediately.


5/29/2015 | Hamels' excellent effort goes unrewarded

Cole Hamels is so aware of the situation he's in, he doesn't even feel a need to talk about it. He knows everybody understands. On the day-to-day scale, Hamels is aware that he's almost always going to have to face an ace. In May alone, he's matched up against Matt Harvey, Francisco Liriano and Stephen Strasburg. But even on the few days, like in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Rockies, when he isn't battling head-to-head against a big name, Opening Day-caliber starter, he runs into a hot arm like Chad Bettis.


5/29/2015 | Asche breaks up no-no trying to punish Rox's shift

Cody Asche had plenty of things to be nervous about in the Phillies' 4-1 loss. Yesterday, Asche was a Minor Leaguer. Last month, he was a third baseman. And a few hours ago, he and his teammates were in danger of combining to tally zero hits over nine innings. But none of this troubled Asche.

5/28/2015 | No benefit to rushing Phillies' top prospects

General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. apologized this week for his harsh comments about Phillies fans in a recent story, but of everything he said in a nearly 20-minute interview with beat reporters on Tuesday at Citi Field, he got this much right: It makes no sense to rush them to the big leagues.


5/27/2015 | Phils' road trip turns sour after promising start

It is hard to remember, but a little more than a week ago the Phillies opened a 10-game road trip with a victory in Colorado. It extended their winning streak to six games. But the Phillies have lost seven of their last nine following Wednesday afternoon's 7-0 loss to the Mets at Citi Field.

5/27/2015 | Rockies, Phillies bring familiarity into opener

Maikel Franco came up with a two-out, go-ahead single in the top of the eighth inning in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Mets in 10 innings at Citi Field. He then kept the game tied when he made a fantastic, barehanded play and throw to first base to end the bottom half of the inning.


5/26/2015 | Mets go for sweep of Phils behind Syndergaard

5/25/2015 | Severino K's career-high 8, looks to stretch further into games

Phillies right-hander Severino Gonzalez is in the rotation for the foreseeable future, which means at some point the 22-year-old must prove capable of pitching more than twice through a lineup.
