  • Carrasco is like a poor man's Hamels. He doesn't have as much of a killer instinct, he's a righty, and his stuff isn't quite as good. However, when he's on, he looks like a #2 SP. The key for Carrasco is consistency. Not sure he has it yet.

      Do you think he will be up in the bigs this season, because from what I've hear if he isn't up right away we should expect him with the Phils around or before the All-Star break...

      • He will be up, but I think he starts in AAA to show he can consistently nail his pitches. No need to crush his confidence and our bullpen if he's not going to be sharp all the time.

          Then I will be able to give you guys updates, because I plan on seeing a bunch of Iron Pigs games this year! I wish I would have gone to more games last year, then I could be able to better understand the Phillies' future. But I plan on making up for it this year. Since tickets are cheap and my evenings and weekends are pretty much open, I'll probably see at least half of their home games this season...

          • Kendrick's win total last year was skewed big time because of his run support. how many times did the phils win 12-7 games where he gave up 5 or 6 runs and got the win. i dont see him as the #5 this year, i think Haap/park will fill that role and kyle will either be optioned to AAA or put in the pen

            • Kendrick doesn't get guys out consistently enough to be in the pen. I think he gets optioned or traded. Park or Happ will start the year as the #5 SP, but Carrasco should get the call long term.

                That is one thing I agree on 100%. He just doesn't have the velocity or the mentality to make up for lack of velocity to be successful in the pen. So I guess i should expect to see some of Kendrick this season for the Iron Pigs...if he isn't traded...

                • Cole Hamels has left Phillies camp and is flying to Philadelphia to have his sore elbow examined Tuesday by team doctors.
                  The Phillies were already taking things slow with Hamels this spring because he threw a career-high 227 1/3 innings last season before tossing another 35 frames in the playoffs. "We do not think it is serious, at least at this time," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "We did do a physical on him before we ended up finalizing the multiyear deal with him and felt comfortable with the diagnostics and such. But he's had a little persistent soreness and we want to be cautious about it and have him checked out." Hamels has a history of elbow problems, which makes this news especially concerning for the 25-year-old ace

                    • Well, they don't think its serious now, I just hope it stays that way. It would be tough to lose him for any extended amount of time...

                      • Agreed. He is getting soreness after he throws an inning, but when he throws, it doesn't hurt more or less. Not sure what that is, but with the workload from last year, it is a huge concern. Hamels isn't exactly the picture of health. He has arm troubles and back troubles, and the kid is only 25...

                        • I like that they are being cautious. I mean its only spring, we are going to need him for the season, especially the second half and crunch time...

                          • Phils demoted Kendrick to AAA and will play out the battle between Happ and Park. Marson and Brad Harman were sent to AA camp.

                            • Doesn't seem like anything too surprising. I guess the Phils are satisfied with the catcher depth for now...

                              • The Phils have 3 MLB catchers who are good enough. Neither Coste nor Ruiz is a great hitter, but both are acceptable. Paulino is a much better hitter, but I think his ability to work with pitchers is a little less than the other 2. Still think Paulino's stick will get him the job over Coste.
