Chase Utley Should Be a Phillie for Life

The Philadelphia Phillies franchise has retired seven numbers in its history. Only one, however, Michael Jack Schmidt, played his entire career in the City of Brotherly Love. Chase Utley will one day have his number retired by the Phillies, but will he join Schmidt as only the second lifelong-Phillie to receive the honor?
It is no secret that the Phillies are holding a blowout clearance sale as their rebuilding process drags on. Cole Hamels, Ryan Howard, and Jonathan Papelbon will all likely end the 2015 season donning the uniform of a different team. There has not been much trade chatter, however, surrounding Utley. The Phillies all-time leader at second base in every major offensive category had not shown any real interest in leaving Philadelphia.
Until this week.
ESPN’s Jayson Stark reported that Utley may be wavering on his desire to remain in Philadelphia. Utley is a California native and is reportedly interested in returning to Southern California should such a trade be placed…

Righty prospect Gonzalez gets the call for Tuesday start

Severino Gonzalez, image- Jay Floyd
The Phillies announced on Saturday that 22-year-old right-hander Severino Gonzalez will make his big league debut on Tuesday at St. Louis.
The Panama native was honored as the Phils’ top minor league pitcher with the annual Paul Owens Award in 2013 when he posted a 7-5 record, a 2.00 ERA, a .224 batting average against along with his 10.33 K/9 and his 1.91 BB/9 combined across three levels.
Last year at Double-A Reading, Gonzalez’s stats took a dip.  En route to leading all Phillies minor leaguers in starts and innings, he posted a 9-13 record with a 4.59 ERA with a 6.52 K/9 mark.  Not great numbers there, but he wrapped up his 2014 campaign nicely, notching a 3-1 record and a 2.53 ERA in his final five starts of the season.
This year, with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, the six-foot-two 155-pounder has tallied a 1-1 record and a 3.57 ERA along with nine strike outs and two walks in 17 2/3 innings over three starts.
To put the progress of Gonzalez, at age 22 in the big leag

Freddy Galvis Made An Amazing Play

We knew Freddy Galvis was extremely good at defense, but he managed to exceed expectations by a mile in Saturday night’s loss to the Braves. Galvis robbed Nick Markakis of a line drive single, diving for the ball and managing to make a strong and accurate throw to first base to get the final out of the sixth inning.

Galvis appeared hurt on the play but was able to recuperate over the next half-inning and didn’t need to come out.

You’ll be seeing this on a lot of “plays of the year” lists at the end of the season.

Freddy Galvis Making his Presence Known with the Phillies

When the Phillies made the surprising, but understandable move to trade Jimmy Rollins to the Los Angeles Dodgers this off-season, Philly fans were unsure about who was going to fill the shoes of the long-lasting hero in their city. Quite frankly, it is unknown if there will ever be another Jimmy Rollins in Phillies history, and certainly not for the time being.
In the meantime, Freddy Galvis is quietly making Phillies fans put Rollins in the rearview mirror through 17 games this season. In 16 games in 2015, Galvis is hitting an astounding .345 with one homerun and eight runs batted in. His .345 average leads the Phillies for those with over ten plate appearances.
To put things in perspective, Galvis hit a …
