Philadelphia Phillies 

Utley wins fifth Heart and Hustle Award

Chase Utley was selected as the Phillies' winner of the Heart and Hustle Award, the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association announced Tuesday.

Ruf returns to Phillies as Mayberry goes on DL

After a short stint in the Majors earlier this year, Darin Ruf was granted another crack at big league action after the Phillies recalled him from Triple-A Lehigh Valley before Tuesday's game vs. the Giants.

Bastardo trying to shut out trade rumors

Fifteen scouts had seats for Cliff Lee's start Monday night at Citizens Bank Park, but not everybody came to see him. Some came to see other Phillies players available before the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, including left-hander Antonio Bastardo. If a team needs relief help, it almost certainly has contacted the Phillies about him.

Numbers indicate Lee can still be effective

Cliff Lee returned to the mound for the Phillies on Monday, just in time for the club to showcase him to potential suitors with the non-waiver Trade Deadline approaching. He was not sharp.

Lee shows rust in potential showcase start

Cliff Lee has not stumped publicly to be traded, although he probably would not stand in the way of a change of scenery. But that will be tough to do before the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline.

Lee roughed up in first start off disabled list

With many contending teams keenly watching his every move, Cliff Lee fired a dud in Philadelphia's 7-4 series-opening loss to San Francisco on Monday.

Two reviews favor Phillies; one goes for Giants

A replay review in the second inning of Monday night's series opener between the Phillies and Giants confirmed that Michael Morse was legitimately tagged out at home plate. Another replay review was called for with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, when Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg won a challenge on a play at first base. Sandberg's luck ran out in the bottom of the ninth, though, wh

Brignac, Nieves return to Phillies from disabled list

Cliff Lee's return to the starting rotation after two months on the disabled list was Monday night's headline, but the Phillies got back some additional depth in the form of Reid Brignac (left ankle sprain) and Wil Nieves (right quad strain), who were reinstated from the DL before the series opener against the Giants.

Crawford hasn't forgotten his UYA roots

When the MLB Urban Youth Academy (UYA) first opened its doors in 2006, a number of high school kids with talent gravitated towards the Compton, Calif. facility and two of the early talents, Aaron Hicks and Anthony Gose, have reached the Majors and still give back to the academy and the community they came from.

Phillies activate Lee amid flurry of roster moves

The Phillies made a series of roster moves Monday, highlighted by Cliff Lee being activated from the disabled list.

Strong-armed Rupp impresses at big league level

Phillies starter Cole Hamels may have been giddy throwing his new two-seam fastball Saturday night, but the other nights of the week, he's having fun watching the development of young catcher Cameron Rupp.

Kendrick can't contain Braves as Phillies drop finale

Kyle Kendrick allowed six runs in the first three innings as the Phillies dropped the series finale to the Braves, 8-2, on Sunday afternoon at Turner Field.

Sandberg unsuccessful on seventh-inning challenge

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg lost a replay challenge in the seventh inning Saturday when he sought to overturn a safe call at second base on Atlanta third baseman Chris Johnson's RBI double.

Asche earns praise for improved offensive approach

Cody Asche's 10-game hit streak was snapped on Saturday against the Braves, but GM Ruben Amaro Jr. and manager Ryne Sandberg had nothing but positive things to say about the young third baseman.

Amaro discusses returning Phils rather than trades

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. wouldn't talk about potential deals prior to the July 31 Trade Deadline, but he said players such as Reid Brignac and Wil Nieves are close to returning to the Majors.

Rollins provides Hamels support in superb start

Cole Hamels allowed one run and four hits with nine strikeouts over seven innings in a 2-1 victory to even the weekend set against the Braves at Turner Field on Saturday night. Jimmy Rollins' homer provided the only offense.

No stress for Phils as Draft deadline passes

Phillies senior vice president and general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. wasn't sweating it out as the clock hit 5 p.m. ET on Friday, marking the deadline for signing 2014 June First-Year Draft picks.

Lee ready to return for home series on Monday

What is the definition of a quality start? That depends on who you ask. For Cliff Lee, it's a start wearing a Phillies uniform. That means Monday night, when the Phils host the Giants at Citizens Bank Park in their first post-All-Star break series at home.

Catchers working way back toward Phillies

The Phillies are looking forward to the return of catchers Carlos Ruiz and Wil Nieves, both of whom are currently rehabbing injuries.

Sandberg confident in Howard for second half

If the Phillies are going to make any kind of noise in the second half, they're going to need some big pop out of first baseman Ryan Howard. Manager Ryne Sandberg believes that Howard will stand tall, and that starts with the way he stands at home plate.

Burnett continues to struggle against Braves in loss

The Phillies dropped their second-half opener, 6-4, on Friday night at Turner Field as A.J. Burnett allowed six runs on 10 hits over five innings.

Ruiz could return to lineup next week

Utley makes presence felt in Midsummer Classic

Chase Utley wasted little time getting into the action at the All-Star Game on Tuesday, plating the National League's first run on a double in the second inning.

Change in the air for Phillies in second half

The Phillies opened the season with a franchise-record $180 million payroll and a healthy roster for the first time in a long time. They expected to compete, but instead they find themselves miles from a pennant race.

Utley thrilled to return to All-Star Game as starter

Chase Utley has long been one of baseball's most underrated players. He was one of baseball's best players from 2005 to 2010, garnering Most Valuable Player votes each season and being named an All-Star five straight years from 2006-10, but never quite got the credit he deserved. He's also been plagued by injuries in recent years, as he hasn't played more than 140 games since 2009.

Burnett on trade talk: Phillies are my team

Changes are almost certainly coming for the Phillies. Closer Jonathan Papelbon made it clear last week that he would like to play on a contending team, but starter A.J. Burnett on Sunday said he was not looking to move on.

Phils get taste of Future in Crawford, Franco

J.P. Crawford had a hit, a steal and a run for the US team in Sunday's SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game at Target Field. Also representing the Phillies organization was top prospect Maikel Franco, who has gotten hot at Triple-A Lehigh Valley after a slow start.

With win streak over, Phils enter break quietly

The Phillies were on the verge of getting back in the conversation, a turnaround of unlikely proportions. But with Sunday's 10-3 loss to the Nationals, Philadelphia is 10 games out of first place entering the All-Star break.

Ruiz plans to start rehab after All-Star break

Carlos Ruiz is targeting Friday as the date for his first rehab game. The Phillies catcher has been on the disabled list since June 27 with a concussion.

Hernandez looks to build off stellar previous start

With Matt Cain on the 15-day disabled list, Yusmeiro Petit will start for the Giants in his place Tuesday. He'll be opposed by the Phillies' Roberto Hernandez, who's coming off his strongest outing of the season.
