Kevin Siegrist (L) Headshot

Siegrist (forearm) threw another successful bullpen session at Busch Stadium on Thursday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

The recovering reliever logged two setback-free bullpens during this past week, setting up a third such session this coming Sunday. Siegrist will then be evaluated to determine whether or not a minor-league rehab stint will be necessary before he's activated.

Willy Adames (R) Headshot

Adames drove in a career-high five RBI in Triple-A Durham's win over Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Alex Kraft of MiLB.com reports.

There were already whispers of a possible September call-up for the promising prospect, and Friday's effort certainly did nothing to dissuade that notion. Adames drew a first-inning walk before roping a two-run single in the fourth, another RBI single in the fifth and a run-scoring two-bagger in the seventh. His fifth and final RBI came on a ninth-inning sacrifice fly, allowing him to eclipse the four-RBI tally he'd managed on two previous occasions in his minor-league career. Adames has now compiled six hits and reached base on eight occasions overall during the last two contests, raising his season line to a solid .273/.366/.417.

Zach Eflin (R) Headshot

Eflin (1-5) allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts over five innings Friday in a loss to the Giants.

Eflin has now allowed at least seven hits in each of his past six starts, a stretch in which he owns a brutal 9.46 ERA. The Phillies need anybody who can eat innings at this point, but it's hard to see a future for Eflin in the rotation given his performance thus far.

Matt Moore (L) Headshot

Moore (4-12) allowed two runs on just two hits and four walks with four strikeouts over 7.1 innings to earn the victory Friday over the Phillies.

Moore has thrown two of his best starts of the season in consecutive outings. This marks the first time all year Moore has gone at least seven innings in consecutive starts, and he held his opponents to two runs both times. Friday marks his first win since June 20 against Atlanta, breaking a nine-start stretch in which Moore managed just a 5.51 ERA and 1.54 WHIP.
