FOR PHILS ZACH EFLIN, SEPTEMBER IS MAKE OR CAREER BREAK!

By Jack Ryan

The season started so well for Phillies pitcher Zach Eflin Eflin that there was talk he could make the National League All-Star team, based on his 2.83 ERA through 14 starts.

But then the bottom dropped out.

He posted a 10.46 ERA in his next six starts, saying he felt fatigued in two of them. He lost his job.

But after just four relief appearances, Eflin is back in the rotation with Jake Arrieta scheduled to have season-ending elbow surgery this month.

Eflin struggled in his first start back Saturday, but if he can come anything close to the pitcher he was earlier this season it would be a godsend to a team desperate for competent starting pitching.
