The Phillies added pitcher Drew Anderson from Double-A Reading yesterday for an extra layer of protection if starter Aaron Nola had an early exit.  While Nola was not terrible (just two earned runs in six innings) the Phillies needed three innings from a bullpen that was very short.   Anderson made his debut and allowed one earned run in his one inning.

After the game, the Phillies optioned Anderson back to Double-A Reading, and additionally optioned outfielder Cameron Perkins to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.  Two players who appeared for the Phillies will return to the club: relief pitcher Edubray Ramos and outfielder Daniel Nava.

Ramos struggled through much of 2017 after showing promise in 2016.  Ramos compiled an 0-7 record with a 5.52 earned run average in 35 games this season.  Between June 17 and June 25, Ramos appeared in five games and lost four of them.

At Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Ramos made 10 appearances, going 2-0 with a 1.54 earned run average.  Ramos pitched for the first time last night after a short disabled list stint for a blister on his finger.   Had it not been for the disabled list stint, Ramos might have returned a little bit sooner.

Nava was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained hamstring on July 26, retroactive to July 23.  The minimal number of days over, Nava is returning to the Phillies.  Nava is batting .303 with a .400 on base percentage and .808 OPS in a reserve role for the Phillies.

Perkins was summoned from the minor leagues upon the contract of Michael Saunders being designated for assignment in June.  Perkins hit .207 in 58 at bats in a reserve role.  Perkins hit four doubles, with no triples or home runs and playedall three outfield positions for the Phillies.
