As Spring Training camp formally opens for the Phillies, they have not shown any improvement from their mediocre 2021 season
The 2021 MLB All-Star Game is set for Denver, Colorado at Coors Field on Tuesday, July 13. So the Google MLB All-Star Selection show aired Sunday afternoon on ESPN. Two Phillies players are headed to Denver. One is no surprise; the other is a bit of a surprise.
The Phillies will be represented by pitcher Zack Wheeler and catcher J.T. Realmuto.
Wheeler has been dominant for the Phillies in 2021. In his 17 starts, Wheeler is 6-4 with a 2.05 earned run average. Wheeler has struck out 139 in 114 innings so far. This will be Wheeler’s first All-Star appearance.
Realmuto might be somewhat of a surprise. With a couple nagging injuries and injured list stints, Realmuto has not performed at the level he has in previous seasons. Realmuto is batting .263 with eight home runs and 31 runs batted in. Realmuto has posted an OPS of .805 in 2021.
This is Realmuto’s third All-Star appearance; he appeared in 2018 with the Miami Marlins and 2019 with the Phillies.
Realmuto’s appearance might be surprising to some, as he has been “pretty good” more so than his typical elite self. But with few strong catchers in the National League, Realmuto’s name and presence will make him a suitable backup to starter Buster Posey, who has resurrected his career in 2021.
Phillies second baseman Jean Segura seemed poised for his third All-Star appearance, but his injuries limited his playing time.

Free agent acquisition Zack Wheeler is showing he has been worth every penny of his five-year $118 million deal for the Phillies.
A series preview of the weekend set between the Phillies (9-12) and division rival Atlanta Braves (14-11).
On the heels on a dominating, but way too close (looking at you, Nick Pivetta) 13-8 win over the Atlanta Braves Monday night, the Phillies (5-6) host the rebuilding Baltimore Orioles (7-7) for a three game series at Citizens Bank Park.
For the first time in Phillies (1-3) franchise history, the team will be playing a doubleheader comprised of two seven inning games. Both games against the New York Yankees (8-1) will be played in a mostly-empty Citizens Bank Park, however, the teams will split home team duties as the Phillies will play the “road” team in the first game and the “home” team for the second. Game one is scheduled to begin at 4:05 with game two starting roughly 35 minutes after game one concludes.
The Phillies have made a decision on their starting rotation heading into their away series with the Toronto Blue Jays, oddly enough, being played at Citizen Bank Park.
On a night where Aaron Nola looked to run out of gas in the sixth, the Phillies offense was flat and a rookie made a rocky big-league debut out of the pen, SS Didi Gregorius shined bright. He had two hits including a home run in a 5-2 loss to the Marlins.
The Phillies have agreed to terms with free agent pitcher Zack Wheeler, Marc Carig of the Athletic reports.
