Phillies’ Jonathan Papelbon Suspended 7 Games for Lewd Gesture

Phillies’ Jonathan Papelbon Suspended 7 Games for Lewd Gesture

Tom Szcaerbowski/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) -- Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon has been suspended seven games by Major League Baseball for making a "lewd gesture" towards the fans and bumping an umpire.

Papelbon made the gesture towards the Philadelphia fans as he walked off the mound after blowing a save on Sunday against the San Diego Padres and then bumped into umpire Joe West.

While Papelbon admits to bumping West, he says the vulgar motion was not intended towards the Phillies fans. Papelbon grabbed his crotch as he walked off the mound as he was booed by the fans.

"While I completely understand how the fans would perceive my gesture while being booed, it was not my intent whatsoever to insult the fans of Philadelphia," Papelbon said. "If it was perceived in that manner, I sincerely apologize."

West had a different take though. "The whole thing started because the fans booed him and he made an obscene gesture. He had no business doing that," he said. "He's got to be more professional than that. And that's why he was ejected."

Now in his third season with the Phillies, Papelbon actually has a very good season for the last place club. He's 2-3 with a 2.10 ERA with 37 saves.

Four Phillies Combine for No-Hitter Against Braves

Four Phillies Combine for No-Hitter Against Braves

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(ATLANTA) -- Phillies starter Cole Hamels left after the sixth inning on Labor Day with a no-hitter in place and watched three other teammates complete the no-hit bid in their 7-0 win over the Braves.

Hamels threw 108 pitches and struck out seven with five walks, but was battling the hot Atlanta heat and exited after getting Phil Gosselin to pop out to end the inning.

Jake Diekman came into the game, but did not know about the no-hitter until he looked at the scoreboard and struck out two in the seventh.

Ken Giles was aware of the combined no-hitter and struck out the side in the eighth inning.

Jonathan Papelbon felt the pressure coming in during the bottom of the ninth and retired Gosselin by getting him to line out to first base to complete the 11th combined no-hitter in major league history.

Phillies Place Starting Pitcher Cliff Lee on the DL

Phillies Place Starting Pitcher Cliff Lee on the DL

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- The Philadelphia Phillies rough season was dealt yet another blow Thursday.  Starting pitcher Cliff Lee was placed on the disabled list after re-injuring his left elbow, and could miss the rest of the season.

In the third inning against the Washington Nationals, Lee threw one pitch to outfielder Denard Span and knew something was wrong. He walked off the field frustrated, knowing that his elbow was hurt yet again.

"The last inning, it never fully went away and it came on a little stronger the next six or seven pitches I threw," he said. "It was there every throw and I just felt like if I kept throwing, something was going to snap, and I just wanted to make sure that didn't happen.

Lee was making just his third start since returning from the DL for a flexor pronator strain that kept him out of action for two months.

The 35-year-old Lee went 6-7 this season with a 3.65 ERA in 13 starts. He's earning $25 million this season.

Phillies’ Chase Utley Has No Desire to Be Traded

Phillies’ Chase Utley Has No Desire to Be Traded

Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS) -- Even though the Philadelphia Phillies have seen better days, long-time second baseman Chase Utley will not seek a trade from the only team he's ever suited up for.

"The grass isn't always greener on the other side," he said Monday. "I've picked some brains over the course of the last few years. I really enjoy Philadelphia. I love playing baseball in Citizens Bank Park. I love playing in front of Philly fans."

"There's no better place to play in my opinion. Obviously winning is important and you want to do that, and I would like to do that in Philadelphia," he continued.

Entering the All-Star break, the Phillies are 42-53, which is last in the NL East.

Meanwhile, Utley is in his twelfth season with the Phillies, and is owed $15 million next season as part of a deal that contains options for $15 million in each of three additional years that could become guaranteed if he has 500 plate appearances in the previous season and doesn't finish the season hurt.

During his career, Utley has hit 225 home runs, driven in 854 runs, has batted .288, and won a World Series with the team in 2008.

Cliff Lee Set to Return to the Phillies After the All-Star Break

Cliff Lee Set to Return to the Phillies After the All-Star Break

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With the Philadelphia Phillies fading fast in the standings, they could use all the help they can get. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced that they expect starting pitcher Cliff Lee back after the All-Star break.

Lee is recovering from a strained left elbow, and is eying a return to the rotation July 19. He hasn't started for the Phillies since May 18.

The 35-year-old Lee made his first rehab start on Sunday, but he was limited to just 24 pitches for Class-A Clearwater due to poor weather.

Still, Lee remains one of the most consistent pitchers in Major League Baseball.

With the Phillies staring at another losing season, Lee is one of their biggest trade chips. The sooner he can prove he's healthy, the better chance the team can get a good return for him.

Lee is signed through 2015 and has a minimum of $50 million left on his contract over the next season and a half. That figure could grow to $62.5 million if he vests his option for 2016.

Utley’s Homer Helps Phils Walk-Off in 14 Innings

Utley’s Homer Helps Phils Walk-Off in 14 Innings

Rich Schultz/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- An error by Jeff Baker in the bottom of the seventh allowed Philadelphia to tie things up before Chase Utley launched a two-run, walk-off homer in the bottom of the 14th giving the Philles a 5-3 win over Miami on Thursday night. 

Philadelphia (36-42) did not lead until Utley's blast as the Marlins (39-40) got home runs from three different players. Jerrod Saltalamacchia opened the scoring with a solo shot in the third before Giancarlo Stanton made it a 2-0 lead with a homer of his own in the fourth.

The Phillies slowly chipped away, scoring runs in both the fourth and fifth innings. It was an Utley single in the fifth that tied things up for Philadelphia. After Marcell Ozuna broke the tie with a homer in the top of the seventh, Baker's error allowed Dominic Brown to score the tying run again.

It remained 3-3 for the next six innings, but not without some chances. The Marlins put the go-ahead run on base in every inning except the 13th, loading the bases in the eighth. However, Philadelphia's bullpen held strong and were rewarded by Utley's heroics.

After Rollins reached on an infield single to open the bottom of the 14th, Utley hammered a pitch to right, sending the hometown fans home happy. It was the sixth homer of the year for Utley.
