Phils look to continue success against the Mets

PHILADELPHIA–  April is finally over. The Phils escaped this year’s notably treacherous month with an 11-9 record, ranking them second in the NL East, a half game behind Florida.

The Phillies have proven to never be out of games, frequently mounting comebacks in the latter innings.  They’ve certainly been fun and exciting to watch so far.

The Phils have the momentum, as they welcome the team everyone loves to hate, the New York Mets (9-12), to the friendly confines of Citizens Bank Park.  The Mets just dropped two of three to Florida, and are in fourth place in the division.

The chokers will throw the undefeated Mike Pelfrey at Chan Ho Park and the Phils tomorrow at 7:05.  The series between this brewing rivalry rarely disappoint.  Expect some good, exciting baseball at The Bank this weekend.

Ruiz continues rehab

Carlos Ruiz is set to continue his rehab assignment tomorrow in Triple-A Lehigh Valley.  Ruiz was set to rejoin the club this week, after being placed on the 15-day disabled list, straining his oblique catching a foul ball in Colorado, April 10.  The Phillies are anxious for Ruiz to return, as Chris Coste has been struggling at the plate, and Lou Marsonhasn’t been getting many AB’s

Hamels sprains ankle

Cole Hamels sprained his ankle fielding Tuesday night.  Hamels threw one warm-up pitch to test the ankle but immediately left the game.  He’ll throw a bullpen tomorrow to test it for his scheduled start on Monday.  We’ll know more later.

Is Rollins back?

For the better part of April, Jimmy Rollins was dormant at the plate.  Rollins is hitting a horrific .207 with an OBP of only .241 at the moment.  In the last week however, Rollins has looked much more comfortable up there, raising his average above the Mendozza Line.  And Rollins, who claims to be “retired” from the predicting business, just can’t help it.  Rollins says he’ll hit .400 in May.
