HOW PHILS PITCHING HAS LIFTED THEM INTO MLB’S ELITE!

By Peter Marks

The Phils lost last night, but The Athletic ranks them one of the top teams in MLB:

5. Phillies

Record: 15-9
Last Power Ranking: 6

Notable stat:

Six innings per start from the rotation

When Aaron Nola is the relative weak spot of your starting rotation, you’re in a good place.

The Phillies’ starters have been gobbling up outs and piling up innings in the early going.

Ranger Suárez spun a shutout against the Rockies last week.

Zack Wheeler carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning against the White Sox.

(If you’re going to face lower-tier competition, you might as well give your bullpen some rest.)

Spencer Turnbull looks like an incredible bargain on a $2 million deal.

The rotation has provided stability as the offense begins to click into gear.
