After Friday’s win against the Pittsburgh Pirates at BayCare Ballpark in Clearwater, manager Joe Girardi announced that Adam Haseley will be out four weeks with a moderate left groin strain.

He suffered the injury taking off for second Wholesale Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys on a 3-2 pitch to Rhys Hoskins in the fourth inning of Thursday’s game against the New York Yankees. Catcher Rafael Marchan and outfielder Jhailyn Ortiz both are out after tweaking a hamstring. The timetable for both hamstring injuries is around 24 days.

Haseley came into camp hoping to win the starting job in center field, but the injury will most likely keep him out beyond Opening Day.

“He’s really disappointed and he worked really hard this winter,” Girardi said on Friday. “He was playing really well, and was moving extremely well and it’s disheartening for him and frustrating. But I told him ‘Look, we love the way you were playing. Make sure that you’re healthy. … Because if you do it again, it’s going to be worse than the first time and then you’re going to be out even longer.’ He’s got to get over the emotional part of it because he was ready to go.”

Scott Kingery, Roman Quinn and Mickey Moniak are all currently on the 40-man roster and have a chance at winning the starting job in center. It’s important to keep in mind that Girardi could prefer a platoon at the position, especially if all three of Kingery, Quinn and Moniak equally impress the Phillies skipper throughout spring. Travis Jankowski and Odùbel Herrera are non-roster invitees who will get a look.

Injuries to both Haseley and Marchan create an unwelcoming roster conundrum for the front office. The Phillies will most likely look to give at least one 40-man roster spot to a non-roster bullpen arm. If, for example, David Hale does not make the team, he’s an obvious candidate to be designated for assignment. They will need an additional roster spot to open up through a DFA or trade if they want to add more than one non-roster player to the 40-man. Beyond Hale, there are not many obvious candidates to let go of. The team will have to give up on a young player or make a trade to create the roster space they need.

They may also need to make room for an additional catcher, most likely Jeff Mathis and his $1.8 million salary, if both Marchan and J.T. Realmuto are not healthy enough to be ready on Opening Day.

A 24-day timetable for Marchan takes the Phillies to March 29. According to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com, non-roster relievers Brandon Kintzler, Tony Watson and Héctor Rondon all have an opt-out clause that can be exercised on March 24. The Phillies would have 48 hours to either add them onto the roster or release them. They could lose out on adding a non-roster bullpen arm if it’s clear that they need to add Mathis to the 40-man roster. The hope is that Realmuto will be ready to go for Opening Day, but nothing is certain.

As far as outfielders go, they can live with what they currently have on the 40-man roster. Non-roster outfielder Matt Joyce, per Matt Gelb of The Athletic, does not have an opt out, but he could still force his way onto the team with stellar play in the Grapefruit League. If not, an injury to Haseley could mean an extra bench spot for one of either C.J. Chatham, Nick Maton or Moniak if he doesn’t win the starting job.

In good Phillies injury news, Realmuto’s cast has been removed and replaced with a splint. He’s not hitting or throwing, but he was able to participate in a drill that simulates the motion of throwing without the ball in his hand.

“He is on track for us. This was a good sign and we’ll just have to see how the rehab continues to go,” Girardi said.

Update 1:38 – A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Adam Haseley injured his left groin heading to first following ball four on a 3-2 pitch. He was injured after taking off for second on a 3-2 pitch to the next batter, Rhys Hoskins

Jeff Mathis Jersey

Although Andrew Knapp showed great signs of improvement this past season, another catcher in Philadelphia Phillies spring training camp should come away with the nod as the backup catcher to J.T. Realmuto for the 2021 season — non-roster invitee Jeff Mathis.

Mathis is a well-traveled 37-year-old veteran Wholesale Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys with eye-popping offensive numbers. No, not eye-popping in a good way, but rather numbers so abysmal at the plate. It may be confusing why he’s rostered each year, but when you look at his defensive numbers, it’s easy to understand.

Mathis played in 110 games over the past two seasons with the Texas Rangers. Over 290 at-bats across those two seasons, he slashed just .159/.212/.252. The highest OPS Mathis has ever posted in a full season was .642 back in 2012 with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Jeff Mathis brings intriguing value other than offensive numbers at the plate.
In his 16 seasons in the big leagues, teams have looked past Mathis’ hitting because of how much of a difference-maker he is defensively. His defensive output and work with the Rangers pitching staff over the past two years earned him another shot at the majors.

Throughout his career, Mathis has made a difference for some of the league’s best pitchers. When Mathis was with the Miami Marlins, he was the primary catcher for the late Jose Fernandez. The 2013 National League Rookie of the Year Award winner posted a 1.56 ERA with Mathis behind the dish. And, when Mathis moved onto the Arizona Diamondbacks, he became the batterymate to fellow All-Star Zack Greinke.

Mathis isn’t just someone you pair with a young pitcher, but a player who can maximize a veteran’s effectiveness. The 2019 season was when Mathis’ defensive impact and presence behind the plate came into the forefront of Rangers baseball. Lance Lynn and Mike Minor finished top 10 in Cy Young Award voting. Mathis caught in more than half (86) of the team’s 162 games — including 50 of the combined starts between the two pitchers. When Mathis was behind the plate, the ERA of the duo was 3.37. When someone else caught, their ERAs were a combined 4.65. This shows a direct correlation between pitcher success and Mathis being behind the plate.

Jeff Mathis could be an immediate difference-maker on the Phillies roster.
With catcher being the hardest defensive position in baseball, you can excuse the poor offensive numbers if the catcher can drastically affect a pitching staff like he has. Throughout his career, Mathis has been tremendous at framing pitches. He boasts a career FRAA (framing runs above average) of 93.8. This means that Mathis has saved more than 93 runs from scoring just from how well he frames his pitches.

Although Knapp made great offensive strides in 2020, the Phillies need someone to come in and help elevate the pitching staff when J.T Realmuto is not behind the plate. Mathis should be the Phillies backup catcher this coming season.

He just might take Aaron Nola and Zack Wheeler to Cy Young Award contention.

Brad Miller Jersey

One day after tweaking an oblique muscle in his right side and pulling himself from the lineup, Phillies utilityman Brad Miller said he isn’t overly concerned about being ready for opening day.

Yet.

Miller underwent an MRI exam Sunday that likely will provide a more thorough diagnosis. For now, Miller is hopeful that Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys China sitting out for a few days and receiving treatment will be the cure for an issue that has bothered him intermittently throughout spring training.

“I just know I need some treatment, some TLC, some rest,” Miller said. “Hopefully it’s nothing too serious. I’m sure in the next couple days we’ll start to talk about the progression [to playing again] and all that.”

Miller was scheduled to play Saturday in Clearwater, Fla., but the discomfort near his rib cage “picked up a little bit.” He’s projected to be the Phillies’ top left-handed bench bat, so the team isn’t about to risk having him play through an injury in spring training.

“It wasn’t anything crazy, but it started [to flare up] when I was kind of moving around [in warmups],” Miller said. “I was like, ‘All right, that’s a little different than before, so let’s pump the brakes a little bit.’ ”

Two years ago, Miller hit 12 home runs and had a .941 OPS in 130 at-bats for the Phillies. He hit seven homers with an .807 OPS in 142 at-bats for the St. Louis Cardinals last year before signing a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Phillies last month.

If Miller isn’t ready for opening day, it could create an opportunity for lefty-hitting infielder Nick Maton, who is 6-for-20 (.300) with one homer and seven RBIs in spring training. Infielder C.J. Chatham, a right-handed hitter, is also vying for a bench spot.

Lefty-hitting outfielder Matt Joyce continued his push for a roster spot by delivering two RBI singles Sunday in the Phillies’ 6-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton, Fla. Joyce, who came to camp as a non-roster invitee on a minor-league contract, is 7-for-13 with a homer and four RBIs.

‘Good day’ for Herrera
Odúbel Herrera bunted for a hit in the first inning Sunday and homered off Pirates lefty Steven Brault in the third. But manager Joe Girardi stopped short of declaring him the front-runner in the center-field competition with Scott Kingery, Roman Quinn, and Mickey Moniak.

“He had another good day,” Girardi said. “We’re just going to have to let it play out for another two weeks.”

Herrera is 6-for-20 (.300) with two homers this spring. After Kingery (3-for-22, 10 strikeouts) led off the game by whiffing on four pitches, Herrera dropped a bunt and used his speed to beat out an infield single. He later scored in a two-run first inning.

“It’s got to be part of his game,” Girardi said. “We work on these guys all the time with bunting, and he tried it out right away and he had success. That’s always easier to sell when you have success and you do it.”
