A few minor league transactions this afternoon:
**The Pirates have signed Hector Luna as a minor league free agent and have assigned him to Indianapolis. Luna will obviously be there to help Indianapolis in their playoff run after the September callups. Luna has a career .262/.314/.385 line in 794 major league at-bats. He had 62 at-bats in the majors with the Phillies this year,...
When Hector Luna was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh after yesterday's 8-0 win over the Brewers, we all knew that Placido Polanco would be back with the team tonight.
Today it was reported that Placido Polanco was activated from the DL after nearly a month's time spent with lower back inflammation. Polly will start third for the Phillies tonight in their home opener against...
Phillies' OF Nate Schierholtz has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right toe, according to the Phillies. Infielder Hector Luna has been recalled to take his spot on the roster.
The Phillies acquired Schierholtz from the Giants in the deal that sent Hunter Pence to San Francisco back on July 31st. In 11 games with the Phillies, Schierholtz...
Roy Halladay will be on the bump for the Philadelphia Phillies–but at what cost? What would the red pinstripes look like without those blockbuster deals? Did Rube Amaro barter away tomorrow’s champions?

I tweeted toward the end of the Phillies 9-2 victory in Wrigley Field last night that this was the kind of win where we would wake up the next morning and wonder aloud if the Phillies got their swagger back. For the first time all...
Kyle Kendrick took the mound in Chicago tonight in place of Vance Worley, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list today with elbow soreness. This might sound like a trainwreck waiting to happen, but Kyle pitched surprisingly well considering he started on short notice. The Phillies' offense was downright incredible tonight, including a surprising debut from Hector Luna.
The Philadelphia Phillies made some roster moves today, in part due to injury, and to hopefully get stronger in the bullpen.
The public was tipped off to the moves by Michael Schwimer yesterday who tweeted congrats to the players coming up. Schwimer was sent down after Wednesday’s loss to the Mets.
The moves were necessitated because of an injury to Laynce Nix.
Nix was placed...

The Phillies, already missing Ryan Howard and Chase Utley, lost another All-Star infielder to injury. Third baseman Placido...
