Antonio Alfonseca, Jose Mesa Unavailable, So Phillies Call on Brian Sanches


Party like it's 2007!

The Phillies lost reliever David Herndon to the disabled list with an elbow issue, so the Phillies caleld up right-hander Brian Sanches.

Yes, Sanches was part of the Phillies first division championship team in this run and part of the team that used a ridiculous 28 pitchers to get through the season, including some of the most storied bullpen names in Phillies history that included:

  • Antonio Alfonseca
  • Joe Bisenius
  • Fabio Castro
  • Clay Condrey
  • Kane Davis
  • J.D. Durbin
  • John Ennis
  • Anderson Garcia
  • Geoff Geary
  • Tom Gordon
  • Yoel Hernandez
  • Jose Mesa
  • J.C. Romero
  • Francisco Rosario
  • Zach Segovia
  • Matt Smith
  • Mike Zagurski

At AAA Sanches was 1-0 with a 3.21 ERA.  Not spectacular, but I guess the Phillies feel his major league experience will help the club.  Sanches is off a couple of decent seasons for the Marlins.

Can Sanches bring the Phillies offense from 2007 with him?
