Small chance Phillies trade Aaron Nola

Nola's 4.75 ERA isn't pretty and he has struggled lately, but his 3.06 FIP suggests there's a lot more upside than the ERA indicates, David Schoenfield writes. Untouchable players for all 30 teams

Tommy Joseph comes up clutch

Joseph's eighth-inning double drove in the first run in the Phillies' win on Monday. Joseph is the first major league rookie this season to produce a game-winning RBI in the eighth inning or later of a scoreless game, the Elias Sports Bureau reports. The last Philadelphia rookie to do that was Marlon Byrd on Sept. 5, 2003.

Jeremy Hellickson's trade value continues to go up as he pitched six scoreless innings tonight against the Marlins. He only had one strikeout, but he does have a career-best K rate to go with a 3.65 ERA. He looks like a viable back-end rotation option -- in fact, maybe for the Marlins.

Zach Eflin takes care of business

Eflin threw a complete-game shutout against the Pirates on Friday. At 22 years and 105 days old, he's the youngest player to throw an individual shutout since Jordan Lyles in 2012 and the youngest Phillie since Kevin Gross in 1983, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Phillies' deadline status: sellers

Unlike last year, the Phillies don't have a lot to sell at this year's trade deadline. But they do have starter Jeremy Hellickson and impact closer Jeanmar Gomez, who could fetch them some quality prospects, Jim Bowden writes. Trade deadline objectives (Insider)
