Phillies Sign Grady Sizemore to Minor League Deal

Phillies Sign Grady Sizemore to Minor League Deal

Michael Ivins/Boston Red Sox/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- Less than a week after he was let go by the Boston Red Sox, the Philadelphia Phillies have signed outfielder Grady Sizemore to a minor league deal.

"I know Boston gave him the opportunity to play, and he had some level of success, and then he did struggle at times," Phillies GM Ruben Amaro said, "but we'll see what he's got in the tank. We believe in the athlete. We'll see what he's got left."

Injuries had kept Sizemore out of baseball for two full seasons. He signed with the Red Sox during their offseason and he got off to a great start, but his production faded as the season went on. In 52 games this season, the 31-year-old Sizemore hit .216 with two home runs and 15 RBIs.

The Phillies are rolling the dice on Sizemore in an effort to jolt their offense. They rank 22nd in Major League Baseball in runs scored.

Rollins Sets Phillies Hit Record

Rollins Sets Phillies Hit Record

Mitchell Leff/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA, Pa.) -- Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-4 for the Phillies in a 7-3 win over the Chicago Cubs at home. His one hit, however, broke Mike Schmidt's franchise record for hits in a career of 2,234.

The game was briefly delayed in the fifth for a brief celebration that Schmidt participated in. A Hall of Famer, Schmidt retrieved the bat for Rollins before delivering it to him at first, along with a hug and a high-five.

"I told him, `Congrats, it couldn't happen to a better guy," Schmidt said later in the game. "I'm glad I was here. My heart is pounding."

Rollins received a standing ovation in each of his at-bats, but grounded out and lined out in his first two attempts at the record. The shortstop would later score in the fifth on Dominic Brown's three-run homer that put the game out of reach.

Chase Utley also homered as Philly won their fourth game in five tries. Schmidt's record had stood since 1989 before Rollins took it over.

Phillies Place Third Baseman Cody Asche on the DL

Phillies Place Third Baseman Cody Asche on the DL

Photos.com/Thinkstock(PHILADELPHIA) -- Just as he was starting to come around at the plate, the Philadelphia Phillies have placed third baseman Cody Asche on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Asche hurt his hamstring Friday night in the team's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The team sat him out for the weekend, but decided a trip to the disabled list was best for him.

"There wasn't much improvement," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro told CSNPhilly.com. "Rather than risk it turning into something long term, we decided to be cautious so it doesn't linger."

After hitting just .161 during the month of April, Asche was finally figuring things out. In the month of May, he was hitting .317 with a .406 on base percentage.

Right-hander Justin De Fratus was called up to take Asche's place on the Phillies roster.

The team is now considering calling up top-prospect Maikel Franco to play third base.

Josh Beckett No-Hits the Phillies

Josh Beckett No-Hits the Phillies

Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Josh Beckett's bounce back season continued Sunday when he no-hit the Philadelphia Phillies.

Chase Utley struck out looking for the final out of the game, as Beckett throws the 21st no-hitter in Dodgers' franchise history.

Beckett retired 23-straight at one point before walking Jimmy Rollins in the ninth inning. He finished the game with three walks and six strikeouts to lead the Dodgers to a 6-0 victory.

It was the first no-hitter thrown in the major leagues this season, and the first no-hitter for the Dodgers since 1996, when Hideo Nomo did it.

The 34-year-old Beckett, who has been dealing with various injuries the past couple seasons, now has a 3-1 record to go along with a 2.43 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 52 strikeouts in 55 2/3 innings pitched.
