Phillies' Bryce Harper: Has pins removed
Harper had his pins removed from his left thumb Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Harper underwent surgery to repair a fractured left thumb in late June, but he'll be able to begin his ramp-up process now that his pins have been removed. The 29-year-old will likely require a few weeks before he's cleared to return to game action, but it's possible that he'll be able to return sometime in mid-to-late August.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Ryan Sherriff: Activated and DFA'd
The Phillies activated Sherriff (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Monday and designated him for assignment.
Sherriff is healthy after completing a lengthy rehab assignment, but according to Matt Gelb of The Athletic, the Phillies have some concerns about the left-hander's velocity, so he won't regain a spot on the 40-man roster now that he's been reinstated. The 32-year-old could remain in the Phillies organization, though, if he isn't claimed on waivers.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Aaron Nola: Punches out eight in win
Nola (7-8) allowed one run on six hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out eight and earning a win over Pittsburgh.
Nola bounced back nicely after coughing up five runs against Atlanta in his last outing. He gave up an RBI double to Cal Mitchell in the third inning Sunday but didn't face much danger otherwise. The 29-year-old righty lowered his season ERA to 3.25 with a terrific 152:18 K:BB through 138.2 frames. Nola is projected to take on the Nationals at home next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Singles four times
Castellanos went 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Pirates.
Castellanos collected four hits Sunday, giving him nine over his last four games. He's now slashing .257/.300/.373 with 30 extra-base hits and 49 RBI through 101 games on the year. Castellanos went 29-for-83 (.289) with nine runs scored and 27 strikeouts in 25 July appearances.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Alec Bohm: Collects four hits
Bohm went 4-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and three runs scored in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Pirates.
Bohm doubled and scored in the first inning and crossed home again in the fifth. He then capped off his huge day with a solo shot off of Dillon Peters in the sixth. The hot-hitting infielder went 33-for-76 (.434) with 15 runs scored and eight extra-base hits in 20 games this month. Bohm boosted his season slash line to .299/.331/.415 through 94 games....

Phillies' Nick Nelson: Starting bullpen game
Nelson will start a bullpen game for the Phillies against Atlanta on Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Nelson served as an opener July 7 against the Nationals and struck out two in two scoreless innings. The right-hander should be able to pitch longer than usual since he hasn't made an appearance since July 26, but he shouldn't be expected to handle a significant workload since the Phillies are planning for a bullpen game. Nelson posted a 1.59 ERA, 15:5 K:BB and 1.24 WHIP in 11.1 innings over eight appearances in July.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Darick Hall: Out of Sunday's lineup
Hall is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.
Hall is 3-for-21 over his past six contests and will take a seat Sunday for the second time in Philadelphia's last three games. Kyle Schwarber will serve as the designated hitter while Matt Vierling, Odubel Herrera and Nick Castellanos start in the outfield.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Corey Knebel: Throws two scoreless frames for win
Knebel (3-5) did not allow a baserunner over two scoreless innings of work to pick up the win in a 2-1 victory over the Pirates on Saturday. He struck out two.
Knebel was called in to pitch the top of ninth with the game tied 1-1, and he delivered in the high-leverage situation. Knebel struck out pinch hitter Oneil Cruz to cap off a three-up, three-down ninth inning. When Knebel came back out for the 10th, he picked Cruz off second with a highly deceptive move. The two shutout innings give Knebel 10.2 scoreless innings pitched in the month of July. He was demoted from the closer role in June after struggling to throw strikes, but he appears to have returned to form.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Hits 10th home run
Realmuto went 2-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in a 2-1 win over the Pirates on Saturday.
Realmuto went deep off Mitch Keller with a solo shot in the sixth inning to tally his 10th home run of the season. The long ball punctuated a perfect night at the plate for Realmuto, who reached base four times. Realmuto has now hit double-digit home runs in every one of his eight full MLB seasons. The veteran catcher has put together an excellent .339/.411/.629 in July and will look to carry that success into the final two months of the season.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Strikes out eight in no-decision
Suarez gave up three hits, one walk and no runs while striking out eight over six innings in a 2-1 win over the Pirates on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.
Suarez took advantage of the weak Pirates offense to churn out his best start of the season. The only trouble Suarez faced was a bases-loaded jam in the fourth inning brought about by a walk and a hit batter, but he got out of the inning and cruised to his third strong appearance in a row. Suarez has not given up an earned run over three starts in July and has lowered his ERA to 3.60. He will look to continue his strong stretch of play when he takes the mound in another favorable matchup next week against the Nationals.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Johan Camargo: Sent to Triple-A
Camargo was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.
Camargo was the odd man out after the Phillies acquired Edmundo Sosa from the Cardinals on Saturday. Camargo has spent the majority of the season in the majors and was hitting .237/.297/.316 across 166 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Won't start Tuesday
Gibson (personal) won't start Tuesday against Atlanta, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Gibson was placed on the bereavement list Saturday following the death of his grandmother, and he'll be away from the team longer than the minimum amount of time. The Phillies will have a bullpen game Tuesday, while it seems likely that Gibson will start at some point during the team's series against the Nationals next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Edmundo Sosa: Dealt to Philadelphia
Sosa was traded from the Cardinals to the Phillies on Saturday in exchange for JoJo Romero, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Sosa spent the first four seasons of his major-league career in St. Louis but will get a change of scenery after he slashed .189/.244/.270 with 17 runs, eight RBI and three steals over 53 games to begin the year. The 26-year-old saw inconsistent playing time with the Cardinals over the first half of the season and will likely serve as infield depth for his new team.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Mark Appel: Recalled by Phillies
Appel was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.
Appel has made four relief appearances for the Phillies this year, posting a 1.29 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in seven innings. The right-hander was sent down July 16 but will rejoin the major-league roster as a multi-inning relief option after Kyle Gibson (personal) was placed on the bereavement list Saturday....

Phillies' Kyle Gibson: Placed on bereavement list
Gibson was placed on the bereavement list Saturday.
Gibson picked up his sixth win of the season Wednesday against Atlanta, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in six innings. Players are allowed to spend between three and seven days on the bereavement list, so it's possible the the right-hander makes a start during the Phillies' road trip to Atlanta early next week....

Phillies' Rhys Hoskins: Mashes game-winning homer
Hoskins went 4-for-4 with a walk, a home run and three RBI in Friday's 4-2 extra-inning win over the Pirates.
After driving in a run with a single in the seventh inning to tie the game at 2-2, Hoskins gave the Phillies the lead with a two-run blast off Duane Underwood in the top of the 10th. The long ball was his 20th of the season -- the fourth time in his six-year career he's reached that mark -- and Hoskins is batting .308 (12-for-39) over his last 10 games to boost his slash line on the season to .253/.342/.481....
