Grading Every Phillies Pitcher Two Months Into the Season
The Phillies are in trouble. We thought these issues were behind us. After last year’s miracle run, we thought that they would be prepared to have a full season. Especially after their busy off-season where they added Trea Turner, Taijuan Walker, and a ton of quality bullpen arms. And yet, here we are again. It is June, and the Phillies are not a playoff team. They aren’t even on the bubble right now. They are 6th in the Wild Card race. It is a problem. They are not pitching well. Nor are they hitting well. We knew the fielding would suck. The base running being a mess is a problem too.
Now once again, they are going to need to dig themselves out of a hole. It took Joe Girardi being fired to inspire them to turn it around last year. It’s unlikely they will fire the manager this year. So the players are just going to need to figure it out.
With that said, who is doing their job so far? Which players are most to blame for these issues? Two months into the season seems like a fair time to start judging their performances. Yesterday we looked at the hitters. So today we will look at the pitchers. Which starter is carrying their weight, and which one is not? Who out of the Bullpen needs to do a better job, and who has pitched great?
