Jake Thompson throws five shutout innings in spot start

Steve Cishek add depth to Tampa Bay’s bullpen

The Phillies traded the veteran righty to the Baltimore Orioles along with cash considerations for big league outfielder Hyun-Soo Kim, prospect Garreyt Cleavinger and international roster slot bonus money.

But Kim worked his way into the lineup, and by late season, he was a fixture in left field for the Orioles.

Kelly singled home the winning run with two outs in the 11th inning to lift Philadelphia to a 4-3 comeback victory over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night.

He experienced a resurgence there, posting a 3.71 ERA on the cellar-dwelling Phillies last season, and accepted the club's one-year qualifying offer worth $17.2 million to stay in Philadelphia for 2017. That, ultimately, was the path the Marlins chose, sending Rea back to the Padres for pitching prospect Luis Castillo, who also was in the original deal. "Your body sometimes will choose the path of least resistance".

For a moment he considered bunting, as Braves third baseman Freddie Freeman was back, but then thought better of it. And when Brothers came at him with an 0-1 fastball, Kelly squared it up and lined it into left-center. A lot of them signed on July 2. The rookie southpaw struggled with his efficiency throughout, throwing just 65 of 104 pitches for strikes. It also left the Phillies without a stabilizing force in their rotation, which they badly needed with Clay Buchholz's season-ending injury, underperformance/an injury from Jerad Eickhoff and a disappointing first half from Vince Velasquez.

Two days after sending Neshek, their top trade chip, to Denver, the Phillies completed two deals following Friday's game. His 5.50 FIP is fifth worst in baseball and his 5.39 xFIP is the second worst mark in the game. "Pat was the most targeted player we had, so this is the one I would've told you was likely", Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said after the Neshek trade. Atlanta dealt starter Jaime Garcia to Minnesota for 19-year-old pitcher Huascar Ynoa earlier in the week. Dylan Bundy's 4.53 ERA leads the bunch, though he's being moved around in the rotation to keep his innings down and his arm fresh in his first full year as a starter.

Cleavinger, 23, has averaged 9.8 strikeouts per 9.0 innings pitched in 27 appearances out of the bullpen this year for double-A Bowie and 11.3 strikeouts per 9.0 innings pitched in his professional career. Kim was a great story last year, but the Orioles buried him this year after Trey Mancini emerged as an everyday player. His league leading 8th blown save, but you can't put all the blame on him. After all, his statistics in the minors are not exactly trending in the right direction.

While the game may have been a bit slow in spots tonight, there were a few times in the broadcast we got a sneak peek on the events going on in Cooperstown. He threw for the Rays in five of the seasons. Tyler Flowers knocked in Atlanta's third run with a sacrifice fly, but Eickhoff struck out Sean Rodriguez to leave the bases loaded. Smith is a left-handed-hitting corner outfielder who gets on base at a pretty high clip, plays sub-par defense, and generally has trouble against left-handed pitching. It's simple. Duquette is going to let him walk and the O's will get nothing in return. One is through the draft, another is through trades and another is signing international amateurs.

Unfortunately, year two with the Phillies didn't work out as well for Hellickson.
