Phillies acquired RHP Alejandro Requena, RHP J.D. Hammer and INF Jose Gomez from the Rockies for RHP Pat Neshek.

Pitching at Low-A Asheville this season, Requena held a 2.85 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 97/25 K/BB ratio over the course of 117 innings (19 starts). Just 20 years old, he does not figure to see his major league debut for another season or so.

Lewis Brinson cracked his first major league home run in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

He went deep off closer Sean Doolittle with a runner aboard in the ninth inning. He went 1-for-3 with a walk after being recalled from Triple-A earlier in the day. He struggled badly in his first stint in the majors last month, but after his demotion he went back to mashing in the minors to earn another shot. The 23-year-old elite prospect was batting .345 with 10 homers and 11 steals in 68 minor league games this year.

Phillies acquired RHP J.D. Hammer, RHP Alejandro Requena and INF Jose Gomez from the Rockies for RHP Pat Neshek.

Splitting time between Low- and High-A in the Rockies system this season, Hammer was pitching to a 2.36 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 65/14 K/BB ratio across 42 innings. The 23-year-old right-hander remains a fair ways out from making his major league debut.
Jul 26 - 11:02 PM

Jimmy Nelson gave up two runs and punched out 10 batters in seven innings and took a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

He ran off six scoreless innings before allowing a solo home run to Daniel Murphy in the seventh. He went back out for the eighth and walked the leadoff batter before being relieved. That runner would come around to score against the bullpen but was charged to Nelson. This was the fifth time this year that Nelson has recorded double-figure strikeouts in a ballgame. He is 8-5 with a 3.38 ERA after 21 starts. He has 142 strikeouts against only 31 walks in 127 2/3 innings.
Jul 26 - 10:59 PM

Phillies acquired INF Jose Gomez, RHP J.D. Hammer and RHP Alejandro Requena from the Rockies for RHP Pat Neshek.

Gomez, 20, had been playing with Low-A Asheville in the Rockies system this season. Over the course of 81 games, the infielder was hitting .324/.374/.437 with 20 doubles, 33 RBI and 18 steals. He'll continue to marinate in the lower levels of the Phillies' farm system now that he has been traded over.
Jul 26 - 10:57 PM

Kendrys Morales slugged a walk-off solo home run in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over the Athletics.

Moments after Justin Smoak tied the game with a two-run shot off closer Santiago Casilla, Morales followed suit with a blast of his own to send the fans home happy. He went 1-for-3 with a walk in the ballgame and now owns a .254 batting average with 18 longballs and 54 RBI on the season.

Rockies acquired RHP Pat Neshek from the Phillies for INF Jose Gomez, RHP J.D. Hammer and RHP Alejandro Requena.

The Nationals, Dodgers and Red Sox had all previously been linked to Neshek, but Colorado ultimately comes away with the prize. The veteran reliever has put in a sparkling season to date, pitching to a 1.12 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 45/5 K/BB ratio across 40 1/3 innings. This fine body of work earned him a berth at the All-Star Game.
Jul 26 - 10:50 PM

Justin Smoak walloped a clutch two-run homer to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Athletics on Wednesday.

His team trailed 2-0 entering the final frame. Following a lead-off walk by Josh Donaldson, Smoak cracked an offering from closer Santiago Casilla over the right field wall. Kendrys Morales followed with a walk-off home run. The bomb was Smoak's 28th of the campaign. He is having the best season of his career while slashing .297/.377/.592 with 67 RBI.
