    Fansided: Phillies Zach Eflin pushing to keep his job in 2020

    Going into the 2019 season the Phillies went all-in on Zach Eflin, Nick Pivetta, and Vince Velasquez to round out the rotation. For the most part, all three have disappointed and been relegated to the bullpen at one time or another.

    Of the three, Eflin has at least shown some improvement late in the year to keep his starting job in 2020, even if it's as the number four or five starter.

    According to ESPN, Eflin has made a big change in his pitch selection, which has led to much better results.

    Phillies Nation: Matt Klentak says Scott Kingery's versatility makes him 'incredibly valuable'

    While the Philadelphia Phillies 2019 season has largely been a disappointment, one of the few pleasant developments has been the performance of Scott Kingery. After Kingery posted a -0.4 offensive WAR in his rookie season of 2018, the 25-year-old has slashed .259/.318/.481 with 19 home runs, 54 RBIs and a 2.4 fWAR in 2019. Kingery appears to just be scratching the surface of his potential, and he's done so while playing multiple positions.

    The Phillies hoped to have Kingery serve in a super-utility role in his rookie season, but injuries from J.P. Crawford forced him into being the team's primary shortstop - he had 374 of his 452 at-bats as a shortstop.

    Philly Sports Network: Phillies' have a Mountain to climb after being swept by Red Sox

    The Phillies suffered a two-game sweep at the hands of the Boston Red Sox this weekend. Losing Saturday's game 2-1 and Sunday's game 6-3. In doing so they are now 4.5 games out of the second wild-card spot. Their remaining schedule doesn't help as the teams they play still have something to play for.

    The Phillies start an 11 game road trip Tuesday night in Atlanta. The Braves trail the Dodgers by 4 games for home-field advantage. Although it may be a bit of a long shot to overtake the Dodgers, the Braves still have hope to win that home-field advantage.

    Phillies Nation: Eflin, Phillies look to take season series from Braves

    The Philadelphia Phillies (77-72) have the chance to take the season series with a win against the Atlanta Braves (93-59) on Wednesday. After taking game one on Tuesday night, the Phillies will play behind Zach Eflin, who is hoping for a better result against the Braves than he had last week. The same holds true for Braves right-hander Julio Teheran, who has had a solid overall season but struggled against the Phillies last Thursday.

    Last Wednesady, Eflin only lasted 3.2 innings against the Braves while running his pitch count all the way up to 95. All of the damage he allowed came on a three-run home run by Josh Donaldson.

    Phillies Nation: Phillies visit Braves to begin 11-game road trip

    The Philadelphia Phillies (76-72) have 14 games left with the next 11 of them on the road. They begin their long road trip with a final trip to Atlanta against the NL East leading Braves (76-72). Up to this point in the 2019 campaign, the Phillies and Braves have split their season series 8-8 with Philadelphia winning two of the last three at Citizens Bank Park.

    The two teams are on two different paths as the regular season inches to a close. Atlanta has the opportunity to eclipse the 100-win mark for the first time since 2003. Meanwhile, the Phillies are hanging onto very small hopes of making a run in their last chunk of games to make the postseason for the first time since 2011.

    The Good Phight: The Jose Pirela Show: Phillies 5, Braves 4

    When the lineups came out Tuesday, you knew what would happen.

    You saw Jose Pirela's name in left field and thought, ok, this guy is gonna make an impact. He's a game changer. He's the one that will lead the final charge into the playoffs as the second wild card.

    No you didn't.

    You probably groaned just like me and wondered where Adam Haseley was and questioned the team's sanity.

    Well wouldn't you know? Jose Pirela impacted the game, hitting what would prove to be the game winning home run in the fourth inning to lead the Phillies on that charge, 5-4.

    The Good Phight: Why this lineup, Gabe? Here's why

    For most fans, the playoff chase is over. Being five games behind the Cubs prior to Tuesday's action and the team playing some pretty uninspired baseball over the weekend, it's hard not to blame people for being indifferent to whatever lineup trots out these final days of the 2019 season. Even still, when manager Gabe Kapler puts ink to card, there are still surprises. Take Tuesday night!

    -- Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) September 17, 2019

    You can pretty much guess some of the responses.

    The consensus was one of disgust and indifference.

    Phillies Nation: Fractured foot ends Corey Dickerson's season

    The Philadelphia Phillies have 14 games remaining heading into play on Tuesday night in Atlanta and they sit five games out of the a Wild Card spot. Unfortunately, they will be without one of their offensive weapons for the remainder of the season. The Phillies have officially announced that outfielder Corey Dickerson is out for the season with a fractured left foot. Acquired from the Pirates on July 31, Dickerson provided the Phils with some more offensive firepower. He was originally acquired to be more of a bench bat, but he played his way into a starting role.

    Fansided: Phillies will soon have to revisit Odubel Herrera question

    It has been a long season for the Phillies with many twists and turns along the way. There have been plenty of issues on the field, but the biggest off-the-field issue was the arrest and subsequent suspension of Odubel Herrera.

    Over Memorial Day weekend, Herrera was arrested on domestic violence charges in Atlantic City and the league swiftly placed him on administrative leave. Charges were later dropped as his girlfriend did not want to proceed with the case, but the league suspended him July 5 for the rest of the season, 85 games total.

    Since then, Herrera has largely been out of everyone's minds as they focused on the rest of the season.

    The Philadelphia Phillies (77-72) erased an early 2-0 deficit to beat the Atlanta Braves (93-59), 5-4, in the opener of a three-game set at SunTrust Park on Tuesday.

The Phillies offense was led by Rhys Hoskins and Jose Pirela, who both hit two-run home runs to power the offense. Bryce Harper finished with two hits while Cesar Hernandez had the other Phillies RBI.

    Meanwhile, Vince Velasquez gave the Phils five innings of two-run ball and the bullpen allowed a run over the final four innings.

    Phillies Nation: Matt Klentak: We want J.T. Realmuto to be a Phillie 'for a long, long time'

    The Philadelphia Phillies have another year of team control over catcher J.T. Realmuto in 2020, but general manager Matt Klentak isn't playing hard to get - he hopes to sign the 28-year-old to a long-term deal.

    In fact, in an offseason that will be full of priorities, Klentak says that the Phillies have inking Realmuto to a long-term deal near the top of their list.

    "I think it's fair to speculate that [signing Realmuto to a long-term deal] will be one of our offseason priorities this year," Klentak told Josh Lewin and Jon Heyman on Big Time Baseball.

    The Good Phight: My 5 reasons why the Phillies missed the playoffs

    Before y'all get in the comments and point out the obvious -- that technically the Phillies are still alive for a playoff berth -- let me just acknowledge that you are correct.

    The Phillies enter their series against Atlanta five games behind the Cubs for the second wild card spot with 14 to play. Mathematically, the Phils have not been eliminated. This is true.

    It is also true that the Phillies are about to play three games in Atlanta, three games in Cleveland and five games in four days against the desperate Nationals in Washington, before finishing the season with three home games against the Marlins, against whom they have a losing record.

    Philly Sports Network: Instant analysis: Phillies' Corey Dickerson out for the season

    The Phillies have placed Corey Dickerson on the 60-day Injured Reserve. Matt Gelb quickly confirmed the news, stating that Dickerson has a fractured foot.

    Dickerson had been one of the best trade deadline acquisitions. With the Phillies, Dickerson slashed .293/.307/.579. In just 34 games, Dickerson racked up 8 HR, 10 doubles, and 34 RBI.

    Phillies beat report Matt Breen broke the news first.

    The injury has been one of many for Phillies left fielders in 2019. Andrew McCutchen first caught the injury bug when he tore his ACL in San Diego. Jay Bruce (who was acquired to replace McCutchen) also faced an oblique injury.
