Struggling Arms

It was another poor week for the Fightins starting rotation. Jake Thompson, Vincent Velasquez, and Jerad Eickhoff all had rough starts this week. The trio combined to give up 19 earned runs in 22.2 innings pitched this week (with 10 charged to Velasquez over two starts).

Elvis Araujo had a disastrous week out of the Phillies pen. Araujo gave up six earned runs in just 0.1 innings pitched this week.

Edubray Ramos also struggled out of the bullpen this week. Ramos gave up two earned runs in just two innings pitched.

The Phillies called up right handed reliever Frank Hermann to replace Aaron Nola on the 25 man roster, and the early results were brutal. Hermann has given up five earned runs in just three innings pitched this week.
