It will take more than sluggers, aces and closers to win the National League East this season. It will take role players and fifth starters and middle relievers, too. It might take somebody or something that nobody is expecting at all. We are talking about secret weapons, of course. It

April 18, 2019

Identifying future closers isn't easy. Mariano Rivera, baseball's all-time saves leader and only unanimous Hall of Famer, began his pro career as a starter. So did Edwin Diaz and Wade Davis, the league leaders in saves a year ago, and many other pitchers who are nailing down the ninth inning

On Tuesday, Major League Baseball announced that the 2026 All-Star Game will be held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, 50 years after Veterans Stadium hosted the ASG for the United States’ bicentennial.

PHILADELPHIA -- Gabe Kapler got to see a couple things on Tuesday, other than the Phillies scoring 10 runs in the first inning of a 14-3 victory over the Mets at Citizens Bank Park. He got to see Scott Kingery and Jerad Eickhoff make strong cases for greater workloads. Kingery

PHILADELPHIA -- Jean Segura has a knack for putting the ball in play. It is one of his greatest skills, which is why it could not have been better to see him stepping into the batter’s box in the top of the 14th inning Sunday evening at Marlins Park. Andrew
