Phillies Land Well Traveled Chris Nelson

Chris Nelson is an everywhere man, in that he plays all over the infield and all over the map.  By signing a minor league contract with the Phillies, Nelson has joined his sixth organization since the beginning of 2013. 

Nelson began his career in Colorado in 2010 and has since played for the Yankees, Angels, and Padres totaling 282 games while batting .265/.699 with a -2.3 WAR.  His lone good season came with the Rockies in 2012 (.301/.810 in 111 games).  The 29 year old is versatile, but doesn’t play any position well, and hasn’t shown the power/speed combo he displayed early in his minor league days (19 HR/27 SB in 2007 in Single-A).  Nonetheless, he provides another bench option for the Phillies in 2015 and depth in the minors.  Is it me, or are the Phillies becoming an organization filled with these type of Quad-A players?

Phillies clubhouse hosts sleepover for children's hospital patients (Big League Stew)

Here’s something you don’t expect to hear about the Philadelphia Phillies: There was an infusion of youth in their clubhouse. But we’re not talking about baseball players, rather patients from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who attended a special sleepover inside the home team’s clubhouse at Citizens Bank Ballpark. The clubhouse sleepover — a first of its kind for the Phillies — was sold as part of the team’s Phantastic Auction in May . The winner of the auction then anonymously donated it to the local children’s hospital, so four patients and their families had the awesome experience of spending the night where Chase Utley and Cole Hamels get ready for ballgames. Among them, according to WPVI-TV in Philly , was  4-year-old Grayson who just finished 18 months of chemotherapy and 10-year-old Brooke who’s fighting cancer for the second time.
