It was a week to forget for the Fightins as the team dropped their sixth straight heading into Labor Day. They were swept at home by both the first place Nationals and the last place Braves.
The team squandered a great outing from Jake Thompson on Sunday, losing 2-1 to Atlanta to close out the brutal home-stand.
September 1 marked the beginning of the expanded rosters for major league baseball, but the Phillies didn’t make any big splashes by calling up one of their top prospects. The only three players the Phils have added so far are first baseman Darin Ruf, and pitchers Colton Murray and Patrick Schuster.
Fans who were hoping for a glimpse of the future in J.P. Crawford or Nick Williams will likely have to wait until next season.
Let’s take a look at who was surging and who was stuggling for the Phils after a week to forget.
