As the Phillies enter their seven-game homestand, they look to add some key pieces back into the lineup. The Phillies will add Noah Syndergaard, Brandon Marsh, Kyle Gibson, and Jean Segura.
Noah Syndergaard will get the ball for the Phillies in the first game of the Nationals series. Syndergaard has a 3.83 ERA and a 5-8 record. He is very injury prone and was even put into a six-man rotation with the Angles to help prevent injury.
Phillies’ new outfielder Brandon Marsh will be hitting ninth and playing centerfield, and Jean Segura will be coming off the IL and hitting seventh and playing second base. Segura was on the IL since the end of May and looks to make a major impact right out of the gate.
As of Thursday afternoon, the Phillies released Didi Gregorius. Gregorius had a .230 batting average with the team and hit 24 home runs. He struggled at the plate this season only hitting one home run in 214 at-bats. He had a .210 batting average and only 19 RBI. He was also one hit away from the 1,000-hit mark.
Kyle Gibson was put on the bereavement list as of Saturday. He left the team due to a death in his family. He will start for the team on Friday.
