5/6/21 : News and Notes

  • The only teams with more wins than the Phillies currently: Oakland ( 19 ), Boston, San Francisco, San Diego and St. Louis ... all with 18. The Phillies have 17 wins and the same 17-15 record as the Dodgers, Rays, Brewers and Mariners. Amazing what a four game win streak in a very competitive major league will do 🤓.

  • Jean Segura will travel to Atlanta with the Phillies. It’s likely he will be activated tomorrow. Team is hoping Bryce Harper can also play against the Braves.

  • 1A, 1B & 1C: The trio of Aaron Nola (43.2 IP), Zack Wheeler (47.2 IP) and Zach Eflin (38.2 IP) have combined to post a 3.05 ERA (44 ER, 130 IP) over 20 starts – the group is averaging just over 6.5 innings in their 20 games on the mound

  • The team now embarks on a 9 game road trip to Atlanta ( 3 ), Washington ( 3 ) and Dunedin, FL ( 3 ) where they will play Toronto. They return to Philadelphia on May 18th

  • Archie Bradley expects to go to Allentown to throw bullpen sessions and see action in Iron Pigs games on a rehab assignment. He expects to be ready to be activated when the Phillies return back home on the 18th

  • The team can carry up to five taxi squad members with them on road trips but since this trip isn’t a great distance it’s likely they will forgo bringing extras along.
