After Monday’s blowout loss to the Dodgers, the Phillies fell to 15-22 since the beginning of June.
Their staff ERA is 26th in the majors during that span.
For the season, the bullpen has 23 saves and 12 blown saves. The rotation ERA since May 22 is 5.26.
They need help up and down the staff — they believed back in March that pitching depth was going to be a strength.
The farm system also has been disappointing, with several of the top prospects struggling or battling injuries, leaving their ability to make a blockbuster kind of trade in doubt.
