Even With Haseley Down, Herrera Has No Clear Path to Phillies Roster

Even though the Phillies have lost Adam Haseley perhaps for Opening Day, there still may not be a path to the Opening Day roster for Odubel Herrera.

Phillies: Adam Haseley injury untimely amid CF competition

There could not have been a more inopportune time for former Philadelphia Phillies first-round pick Adam Haseley to go down with an injury. On Friday, manager Joe Girardi announced that the 24-year-old will be sidelined for four weeks after being diagnosed with a moderate groin strain. Not only will Haseley miss the remainder of spring […] Phillies: Adam Haseley injury untimely amid CF competition - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - A Philadelphia Phillies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Phillies 2021 Season Player Preview: J.T. Realmuto

After posting one of the best offenses in the National League last season in terms of runs scored, the Philadelphia Phillies were in danger of losing a key part of their lineup when J.T. Realmuto hit free agency. For some time, it appeared all but certain that Realmuto would sign elsewhere and the Phillies would […] Phillies 2021 Season Player Preview: J.T.

Adam Haseley will miss four weeks with a groin strain

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ This changes things Joe Girardi dropped a little bit of a bomb on the team today when he said during his postgame press conference that Adam Haseley will be missing four weeks thanks to his groin going south on him. Girardi: Adam Haseley suffered a moderate groin strain. He’s expected to miss four weeks, and that will alter CF competition.— Matt Gelb (@MattGelb) March 5, 2021 Saying it will alter the competition for the center field job might be a bit of an understatement. Haseley of course got the Phillies spring off to a rousing start...

Are you smiling or wincing?... Yes | Photo by Mark Brown/ Like Peter Frampton, Matt Moore returns from Japan a conquering hero. Has he caught a rising star? Matt Moore’s road to the 2021 Phillies did not hew to the track the prospect prognosticators presaged. In a nearby possible world Moore has become a world-beater. The Phillies would have signed an about-to-leave his prime perennial all-star whom the Rays decided they simply could not pay anymore. Another lance honed keen, he would have added a baffling lefty to the Phillies dominant righties at the top of the...

Photo by Mark Brown/ Well that was a day When the website goes down, it’s bad for everyone involved. Yesterday, TGP experienced an outage where commenting was not possible. Happened at the worst possible time as well since the Phillies decided to go on a spring rampage against the Yankees and chatting about it would have been fun. It also wouldn’t let us create new stories which is why there was no recap of the game, meaning we couldn’t share gifs, pictures, and videos of what went down. These things happen from time to time.

Phillies face tough 2021 season competition in NL East

The Philadelphia Phillies will have their hands full with a very stacked National League East division in the 2021 season — with the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets looking for not only a postseason appearance, but much greater things.

Joe Dillon does ‘tremendous job’ to prepare Phillies hitters

Philadelphia Phillies manager Joe Girardi recently praised spring training guest instructors Larry Bowa and Charlie Manuel for the tremendous value they bring to the team throughout the season, especially in spring training as the team has extra focus on fundamentals.

Joe Girardi loves having Larry Bowa, Charlie Manuel in camp

Philadelphia Phillies greats Larry Bowa and Charlie Manuel surely make their presence felt each spring training as guest instructors. This year, that is only magnified, as club’s former managers were the only two invited to spring training due to COVID-19 concerns.

Phillies: Matt Moore exudes confidence in solid spring debut

It was just about a month ago when the Philadelphia Phillies signed left-hander Matt Moore to a one-year, $3 million contract — as he seeks to rejuvenate his Major League Baseball career after pitching 85 innings last year in Japan.

Phillies should mull Mickey Moniak, C.J. Chatham for bench

Outfielder Mickey Moniak and infielder C.J. Chatham may not have much major-league experience, but they could be what the Philadelphia Phillies are looking for when it comes to  bench depth.

Mid-level prospects, like Adonis Medina and Damon Jones, are people too!

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Two guys added to the 40-man roster are going to play a role on the team in 2021 Getting added to the 40-man roster is a big deal for a player. Adonis Medina was added last year and Damon Jones was added this offseason. Does it mean they’ll both pitch in Philadelphia? Not necessarily, but the chances of them doing so just went up. Medina especially feels like he’ll be a part of the 2021 team since, as a starter, he’ll be one of the first ones called up in case of injury to a member of the current rotation. There is also the need for Joe...
