Phillies Pitching Coach On Alfredo-Gonzalez: ‘This Might Take A Few Months’

It’s been well-reported that Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo-Gonzalez has started slowly during Spring Training. Though his velocity has increased, it still seems like he’s rusty, and working his way back. That process might take a while.

Papelbon Says He Dealt With Hip Issue In 2013

When Jonathan Papelbon talks, there is usually quite a bit of reaction. Earlier this year, when Papelbon said that he doesn’t perform as well when the team isn’t winning, that reaction was generally negative. It seems it wasn’t only a lack of fire that caused Papelbon’s disappointing 2013 season.

Hamels: Sandberg Has Changed The Phillies Culture

Even the biggest supporters of former Phillies manager Charlie Manuel would have admitted the team was in need of a change. Surely there were other reasons, including personnel and injuries that caused that disappointing seasons in 2012 and 2013, but the clubhouse needed a jolt of energy. Ryne Sandberg seems to be bringing that to the table in Clearwater this year.

Jake Diekman: 2013 Was A ‘Great Learning Experience’

Sometimes you have to make the best of a bad situation. No one hoped or expected that the 2013 Phillies would end the season 20 games under .500, that’s the bad situation. Reliever Jake Diekman found a way to make the best of it.
