  • COULD IRONPIGS BE ON VERGE OF LOSING BUSH? ...

     
    Remember last year, when the IronPigs lost Brian Gordon in mid-June when the Yankees came calling for him? History could repeat it self very soon. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports identifies IronPigs starter Dave Bush as a veteran with an approaching out...
  • WHY NOT FONTENOT...?

     
    If I was Mike Fontenot, I'm not sure I' would've been in a very good mood on the 90-minute bus ride from Indianapolis to Louisville Thursday afternoon. All he's done done since joining the IronPigs is hit .319 in 14 games, with six doubles and six RBIs....
  • NO REPLACEMENTS YET ... BROWN OUT BUT AVAILABLE ... LUNA STRUGGLING ...

     
    Dom Brown is not in the IronPigs starting lineup for Thursday's game with visiting Charlotte, one day after he left a game with the Knights in the sixth inning with a slight hamstring pull. However, both he and manager Ryne Sandberg said he could play...
  • SANDBERG SEES BROWN RETURNING SUNDAY ...

     
    Dom Brown is out of the IronPigs lineup for the second straight game and won't likely return until Sunday, IronPigs manager Ryne Sandberg said. "He did more today; he did running, he shagged in the outfield today [during batting practice. He felt fine,...
  • AUMONT'S STRUGGLES ... LINEUP ROULETTE ... FASHION STATEMENT

     
    Most people used the word dominating to describe Phillippe Aumont's two-inning save on April 20 against Buffalo, when he struck out four of the six batters he faced. That's not the word anyone would use to describe his last three appearances. Aumont has...
  • TUFFY GETS SECOND STRAIGHT START BEHIND PLATE ...

     
    Erik Kratz said it was more of a severe cramp than a pulled hamstring. Whatever it was, it got the three-time all-star catcher a night off. Tuffy Gosewisch is behind the plate for the second straight night Friday night, breaking the alternating game cycle...
  • Today's roster moves and how the roster could shape up

     
    We’re getting down to the nitty-gritty, and Tuesday morning started off with a few more roster moves. The Phillies re-assigned RHP Scott Elarton and RHP Brian Sanches to minor league camp, and they optioned LHP Jake Diekman to the minors.......
  • A LOOK AT THE OPENING DAY ROSTER ...

     
    Ryne Sandberg will finally get his first look at his Opening Day roster tonight. It should remind him a lot of his team that entered the 2012 season. The 2012 IronPigs don't appear to have the power punch that last year's team did. Entering last season...
  • DIEKMAN STILL ROLLING IN CAMP ...

     
    CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Everything continues to go right for Jake Diekman. The side-arming left-hander took over for Pat Misch Wednesday afternoon with a Pirate runner at first and one out in the fifth inning. Two pitches later, the IronPigs were off the...
  • PRELIMINARY IRONPIGS ROSTER TAKING SHAPE ....

     
    Sometime today the IronPigs prelliminary roster is expected to be announced. I say "preliminary" since their final roster won't be known until the Phillies set their roster, and with the Phillies opening later than usual this year, that presents...
  • HYATT SENT BACK TO READING ...

     
    The Phillies sent struggling right-hander Austin Hyatt back to Reading today, replacing him with infielder Tug Hulett. The 26-year-old Hyatt, who has lost his last six decisions including his last four starts, has a 2-6 record with a 5.47 ERA in 10 starts...
  • BLANCO, SUOMI STILL OUT; TONIGHT'S LINE-UP ...

     
    Andres Blanco (knee) and John Suomi (hip flexor) are unavailable again for Friday night's home stand finale against Gwinnett. "He's coming along good, still on a day-to-day basis, but much better today than yesterday," manager Ryne Sandberg said of...
