8/30/2015 | Asher enjoyed experience of his first start

At the very least, Phillies rookie Alec Asher had a memorable afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. Asher is one of five prospects the Phillies acquired from Texas in the Cole Hamels trade in July. He became the second of those prospects to make his big league debut, when he started Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Padres. Asher allowed eight hits, four runs, one walk, two home runs and struck out three in 5 2/3 innings.


8/30/2015 | Phillies claim reliever Roberts off waivers

The Phillies acquired some bullpen depth Sunday when they claimed left-hander Ken Roberts off waivers from the Rockies.


8/30/2015 | Colon to go for his 12th win as Mets take on Phillies

When Jerad Eickhoff made his Major League debut earlier in the month, everything was new. Suddenly, somehow, it's all already much of the same. Eickhoff and Bartolo Colon will square off for the second time in six days on Monday when the Mets and Phillies open a three-game series at Citi Field.


8/29/2015 | Sweeney opening eyes in Philadelphia

The Phillies have their playing time priorities for the remainder of the season, and Cesar Hernandez and Odubel Herrera are priorities at second base and center field, respectively. Where does that leave Darnell Sweeney?


8/29/2015 | Howard finding success facing only righties

As the Phillies have transitioned into a younger team, Ryan Howard has quietly put up some good numbers for almost two months. He entered Saturday night's game against the Padres hitting .293 (41-for-140) with nine doubles, eight home runs, 34 RBIs and an .873 OPS in 39 games since July 5.


8/29/2015 | 9 years after surgery, Asher ready for debut

This is the moment Alec Asher probably envisioned when he had Tommy John surgery at 14 years old. Asher, 23, is one of the players the Phillies acquired from Texas last month in the Cole Hamels trade. He will make his big league debut on Sunday afternoon against the Padres at Citizens Bank Park, the second pitcher acquired in the trade to debut this season for the Phillies.


8/28/2015 | Altherr enjoying his extra-base hit tear

One of these days Aaron Altherr is going to hit a blooper, a chopper or a broken-bat bleeder. One of these days he is going to get that first big league single. But until then Altherr will keep stockpiling extra-base hits like Jordan Speith stockpiles birdies.


8/28/2015 | Nola continues to impress for Phillies

The Phillies entered Friday night's series opener against the Padres on pace for 99 losses. But that does not mean they are not worth watching the rest of the season. In fact, they should be quite interesting to follow because four out of every five games (or four out of every six, if they employ a six-man rotation once rosters expand Tuesday) the Phillies will have a rookie pitcher on the mound.


8/28/2015 | Double-A prospect Williams has a concussion

Double-A Reading outfielder Nick Williams has looked like the real deal since the Phillies acquired him from the Rangers in July in the Cole Hamels trade.


8/28/2015 | Asher to make Major League debut on Sunday

8/28/2015 | Hayes fond of Philly, friendship with Jones

Charlie Hayes was 24 years old when he was traded from the Giants to the Phillies. It was June 18, 1989. Future Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt had retired three weeks earlier. All Hayes was being asked to do was replace the best player in franchise history.


8/28/2015 | Young Phils compete, but just can't solve Mets

Asked about the Phillies' week against the Mets, Jeff Francoeur just shook his head. The Mets beat the Phillies in 13 innings Thursday night at Citizens Bank Park, 9-5, to complete the four-game sweep. It was the first time the Mets had swept the Phillies in a four-game series in Philadelphia since Sept. 6-9, 2002.


8/28/2015 | Araujo placed on DL with strained left groin

The Phillies placed left-hander Elvis Araujo on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a strained left groin. They recalled right-hander Nefi Ogando from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take his place in the bullpen.


8/27/2015 | Record-setting Mets run win streak to 7 games

Daniel Murphy hit a go-ahead two-run double and made a circus play on defense Thursday, leading the Mets to a 9-5, 13-inning win over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. The Mets swept the four-game series in Philadelphia and have won seven in a row overall, grabbing their third winning streak of at least seven games this season.


8/27/2015 | Potential duel on tap between Nola, Kennedy

Two hot pitchers will try to finish August on a high note when the Padres and Phillies open a three-game series on Friday at Citizens Bank Park.


8/27/2015 | Phils excited about future behind the plate

The Phillies think they have a bright future behind the plate. Carlos Ruiz and Cameron Rupp figure to be back behind the plate next year, although Triple-A catcher Gabriel Lino is highly regarded because of his defensive capabilities. He could be a September callup. The Phils also have some strong catching prospects in Jorge Alfaro and Andrew Knapp.


8/27/2015 | Phils plan to give Altherr more starts down stretch

The Phillies have used most of the season to play outfielders Domonic Brown, Odubel Herrera and Cody Asche. But Mackanin said before Thursday night's series finale against the Mets at Citizens Bank Park that he plans to play outfielder Aaron Altherr more often the rest of the way.


8/27/2015 | Manfred: More safety netting being discussed

Commissioner Rob Manfred said discussions regarding extended safety netting at Major League ballparks are ongoing and that he hopes to make a recommendation to owners during quarterly meetings in Dallas in November.


8/27/2015 | Eickhoff settles in after shaky first, retires 16 straight

On Wednesday night, right-hander Jerad Eickhoff made just his second Major League start and first at Citizens Bank Park in a 9-4 loss to the National League East-leading Mets. The Mets scored three runs in the first inning, but Eickhoff's recovery spoke louder than the final result.


8/26/2015 | Niese, Mets seek 7th straight win, sweep of Phils

The Mets will look to continue their strong play away from Citi Field and complete a sweep of the Phillies behind Jon Niese in the final game of a four-game series at Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia will counter with veteran right-hander Aaron Harang.


8/26/2015 | Mets' 6th straight win ups NL East lead to 6.5

For the third time this season, the Mets own a winning streak of at least half a dozen games. They grabbed their sixth straight win with a 9-4 victory over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday night, extending their National League East lead to 6 1/2 games -- their largest since leading the Phillies by seven games with 17 to go in 2007 -- and putting themselves on pace for exactly 90 wins.


8/26/2015 | Phils want to see how Hernandez reacts to slump

Cesar Hernandez has seen a lot of playing time recently, but he started Wednesday on the bench after a five-game slump that saw him hit .048 (1-for-21). Manager Pete Mackanin isn't concerned about the 25-year-old, and in fact, saw this as a chance to get a better feel for the young infielder's mental makeup.


8/26/2015 | Bowa's issue with quick pitch safety related

Phillies bench coach Larry Bowa has been around the game long enough to know he's going to hear from Major League Baseball over the next few days.

Tempers flared and benches emptied in the seventh inning Tuesday night in the Mets' 6-5 victory over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
