  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Phillies optioned Falter to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

    Something had to give with Falter, who fell to 0-7 on the year Monday against the Giants. The 26-year-old left-hander heads to the minors with an overall 5.13 ERA and 1.44 WHIP through 40.1 innings (seven starts, one relief appearance) this season with the reigning NL champs.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Lit up in bulk role

    Falter (0-7) took the loss in Monday's 6-3 defeat to San Francisco. He allowed six runs on eight hits while striking out two over 4.1 innings.

    After seeing Falter struggle through his first seven starts, the Phillies elected to use an opener in front of the lefty and instead have him pitch in a bulk-relief role. The arrangement clearly didn't help. Falter gave up all six of his runs in the second inning, as the Giants sent 10 hitters to the plate. He's now sitting on a 5.13 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and just 28 strikeouts in 40.1 innings on the season.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Set to follow opener

    Falter will pitch behind an opener the next time he takes the hill for the Phillies, which will likely come Monday against the Giants, Alex Coffey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    After producing a 3.86 ERA in 20 appearances (16 starts) last season, Falter has struggled to a 5.75 ERA in seven starts this year. His fastball velocity has fallen from 91.6 mph to 90.9 mph, while his strikeout rate has dropped from 21.2 percent to 17.0 percent. He continues to show good control, with his 5.2 percent walk rate a near match for his 4.9 percent mark from last year, but his mediocre stuff has made it hard for him to retire the opposing team's best bats, leading to a 7.71 ERA in the first inning. Pitching behind an opener means Falter will get to skip those best bats the first time through the order and also means he won't have to last five innings to have a shot at a win.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Falls to 0-6

    Falter (0-6) took the loss against Boston on Saturday, allowing five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four batters over 3.2 innings.

    Falter was perfect through three frames, but he imploded in the fourth. In that inning, he got only two outs and yielded six hits along with one walk, leading to five Red Sox runs. The southpaw has taken a loss in six of his seven outings this season, though this was only the second time he's given up more than four runs. With Ranger Suarez (elbow) headed back to the rotation next weekend, the Phillies are opting to move Matt Strahm to the bullpen, but Falter may need to show marked improvement moving forward if he's going to hold on to a starting role for the entire campaign.

  • Phillies' Bailey Falter: Yields four runs in loss

    Falter (0-5) allowed four runs on eight hits and three walks over 4.1 innings Sunday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Astros.

    Falter never found a groove Sunday and was forced to work around threats in nearly every frame. He allowed one run in four separate innings, including the fourth when he coughed up a solo homer to Jake Meyers. After an impressive start to the year, Falter has allowed three or more runs in four straight outings, raising his season ERA to 5.01. He forced just five whiffs Sunday, tying a season low. Falter is currently lined up to face Boston at home next week.
