Fascinating trade involving the Phillies and Dodgers. Carlos Ruiz goes to the Dodgers for C AJ Ellis, RHP Tommy Bergjans and a player to be named later. Wonder if Ruiz becomes Clayton Kershaw's personal catcher when Kershaw returns

Bad team, bad park for Baker's Phillies

With the White Sox soon to be playing at Guaranteed Rate Field, David Schoenfield took a look back at other bad ballpark names. Phillies owner William Baker was so cheap that he used sheep to "cut" the infield grass at the Baker Bowl, where the power alley was just 300 feet away from home plate. Bad ballpark names

More on Carlos Ruiz: Source on a team that asked about him says he was told the Phillies asked him a few days ago if he's willing to waive his no-trade in the "right" deal & he said yes. Reported Wednesday he has cleared waivers and can be dealt to any team.

Steve Carlton excelled on a struggling squad

Carlton won the first of his four Cy Young Awards in 1972, finishing the season 27-10 and leading the NL in ERA (1.97) and strikeouts (310). All other Phillies pitchers went 32-87 that season as they finished with the worst record in the NL and second-worst in the majors (59-97). Great players on bad teams

Sources say Ryan Howard & Carlos Ruiz both cleared waivers. Heard of 2 teams mulling Ruiz. Howard virtually certain to stay in Philly.

Galvis criticizes Phillies' current netting

After a foul ball off his bat hit a young girl in the face on Saturday, Freddy Galvis had strong thoughts regarding the netting at Citizens Bank Park. "It's 2016 and fans keep getting hit by foul balls when you're supposed to have a net to protect the fans," Galvis said. "We're worried about speeding up the game. Why don't you put up a net and protect all the fans?" Philly.com

Phillies hold steady in Power Rankings

Despite tying for the league lead in team shutouts at 11, Phillies pitching got lit up last week. Losing Aaron Nola for the season doesn't help, either. Week 20 Power Rankings

Jeanmar Gomez remains a trade candidate

It isn't likely that Gomez would clear waivers, as several contenders could use an arm like his in the back of their bullpen, Jim Bowden writes. However, the Phillies' price would be high -- as would be the case for Jeremy Hellickson. Players who could be traded by Aug. 31 (Insider)

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Did Freddy Galvis, who entering tonight had the highest out rate (outs/PA) among qualifiers, just go deep? Yes, he did. He also doubled earlier. Well then.

MLB clears Howard, Zimmerman in PED probe

MLB has cleared Ryan Howard and Ryan Zimmerman of any wrongdoing in its investigation of an Al-Jazeera report on PEDs, announcing that neither player violated the sport's drug program.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola is done for the season after a visit to Dr. James Andrews revealed a low-grade sprain of the UCL and a low-grade strain of the flexor muscle in his right arm. Nola has been placed on the 60-day disabled list and will refrain from any activity for four weeks. While no surgery is scheduled at this time, it's concerning news for one the franchise's bright young pitching prospects.
