Phillies cut ties with Kevin Slowey on Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) The Phillies released Kevin Slowey on Tuesday, per the team's official website. Slowey posted a 6.94 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP over 11 2/3 innings of work this spring. Last season, he registered a 5.30 ERA with the Marlins.

Pirates' Sean Rodriguez 'challenges' Phillies' Kevin Slowey to fight


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) The Pirates torched  Phillies pitcher Kevin Slowey Monday for six runs Monday, but one player was still frustrated with how Slowey acted on the mound.

Left fielder Sean Rodriguez stepped into the batter's box in the fifth inning and believed Slowey quick pitched him, leading to a strikeout, reports MLB.com.

Rodriguez was visibly displeased with the move and yelled at Slowey as he walked off the field, who was staring right back at him. Rodriguez continued to jaw at Slowey in the fifth, leading to both benches clearing.

 "It surprises me to be that upset, and challenging somebody to a physical altercation hardly seems like the best way to resolve your frustrations," Slowey said. "I was kind of taken by surprise at his animosity after his at-bat. I know the kind of guy that he purports to be. That surprised me that that would be his choice of words and reaction. I guess I understand the frustration of a singular failure. It's a game of failures. But to react that way to me was very surprising."

Manager Clint Hurdle remained neutral on the topic after the game.

"The umpires don't have to give you time. I'm not here to be judge or jury. We'll talk about it internally, about how we can do better job of not letting it happen again, or what we'll do if it does happen again."


Phillies' Slowey struggles Monday, O'Sullivan favorite to start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Phillies pitcher Kevin Slowey allowed six runs (five earned) on six hits in two innings while striking out two and giving up two home runs in Monday's 18-4 loss to the Pirates.

Slowey remains a candidate for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, but Sean O'Sullivan, who was reassigned to minor-league camp earlier this month, is scheduled to start Tuesday and is the favorite to take the mound the first time the Phillies need a fifth starter, MLB.com reports.

The Phillies are also looking outside the organization for rotation help, but "it's likely to be an internal candidate," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said.

If the Phillies do add someone, it'll likely be via a minor trade or through waivers.


Phillies P Kevin Slowey needs to utilize more pitches


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Phillies pitcher Kevin Slowey is battling to earn a spot in the team's five-man pitching rotation this season. Manager Ryne Sandberg wants to see Slowey mix up his pitches when he is out on the mound, per MLB.com.

"He's working on his breaking stuff," Sandberg said about Slowey. "He's featuring a lot of fastballs right now. And for him to be a multiple-innings guy, to be a long type of a guy or even to step into the rotation, he needs to mix his pitches, his breaking pitches, work on his breaking pitches. He's thrown a lot of fastballs in his outings."

In his latest outing, Slowey allowed three hits and three runs, two of which were earned, in one inning pitched. In six Grapefruit League appearances he has an ERA of 3.72, giving up nine hits, five runs, two walks and one homerun with seven strikeouts in 9 2/3 innings thrown.


Phillies P Kevin Slowey likely headed to bullpen


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/22/2015) Phillies pitcher Kevin Slowey , who was in the hunt for the team's No. 5 starter role, likely will start the campaign in the bullpen, per The News Journal

Slowey pitched one inning Sunday, but manager Ryne Sandberg envisions Slowey in a variety of roles in the pen. "Right now he's kind of a swing guy for us," Sandberg said. 

Slowey was 1-1, with a 5.30 ERA last season. 


Phillies' Slowey yields four singles in relief outing Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Phillies pitcher Kevin Slowey, who is vying for a spot in the rotation, took the hill in relief Thursday against the Tigers. Slowey entered the game in the seventh inning with two outs to relieve Hector Neris.

Slowey was greeted by an RBI single from Ben Verlander. Miguel Gonzalez followed with another single, but the inning ended as Jefry Marte was thrown out at home plate.

Slowey allowed two more singles in the eighth inning before being lifted with two outs. He was charged with four hits and no runs in one inning, while striking out one.

Slowey pitched in the same game as Jerome Williams and David Buchanan, who are also looking to make the rotation. The chances of making the rotation have increased as Cliff Lee could be faced with a season-ending elbow injury.

"I tell you what," Slowey said about Lee, per MLB.com. "That would be a real shame in a lot of ways if he can't pitch. But who knows? Wait and see what tomorrow brings. ... I'm ready from any pitch, whatever they need, whenever they need it. I want that to be the case over the course of the whole season."


Kevin Slowey gives Phillies three perfect innings


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Kevin Slowey threw three perfect innings for the Phillies, Sunday, in his second spring start. 

Slowey struck out two of the nine batters he faced and made a statement for earning the fifth spot in the starting rotation. 

"I think at this point in my career, I know what makes me good. And if I can execute that, things usually turn out well. If I can't, usually they don't turn out so well. The last couple games I've been able to get ahead with fastballs in the zone and let our defense do the work," he said.


Phillies pitcher Kevin Slowey strikes out two in spring training debut


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Phillies starting pitcher Kevin Slowey posted a fairly routine start in Wednesday's win over the Yankees. Slowey pitched two innings, recording two strikeouts and allowing one hit. Slowey is hoping to earn a spot in the Phillies starting rotation after spring training, according to MLB.com.

"In terms of breaking with the club, it's out of my hands," said Slowey. "As long as I've been playing, every year you sort of realize that a little more. You go out there and you do what you can. For me, once I let go of the ball, that's it and I can prepare as best I can, and that's what I've done. The hope and the goal is to show them I can help the Phillies win and leave the decision up to them."


Kevin Slowey willing to start or relieve to make Phillies' roster


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) In his first five years in the Major Leagues, RHP Kevin Slowey had 90 starts in 100 appearances with the Twins. However, in the last two seasons, both with the Marlins, Slowey had just 16 starts, with 21 relief appearances, including coming out of the bullpen in 15 of his 17 games last year.

Now in camp with the Phillies as a non-roster player, Slowey is open to whatever role will help the team.

"I feel like there’s an opportunity here for me to show that I can contribute at the big league level, whether they want me to be a starter or a reliever," Slowey told Philly.com's Jake Kaplan

Slowey was 1-1, with a 5.30 ERA last season.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Phillies released O'Sullivan after the season. McGuinness earned 34 at-bats with Texas in 2013, but did not play at the major league level last year. Slowey was released by Miami in June after a poor performance.

Kevin Slowey loses on walkoff homer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Marlins pitcher Kevin Slowey got the team out of a jam in the 12th inning Friday, but got into one of his own shortly after, in a 5-3 loss to the Cubs.

With a runner on second and just one out in the bottom of the 12, Slowey entered the game in relief. He recorded consecutive strikeouts to send the game into the 13th, but that was where the good times ended for him. Slowey allowed a leadoff single to Junior Lake, and then Anthony Rizzo ended the game with a walkoff home run to left.

Friday represents Slowey's first loss of the season, as is now 1-1 with a 5.01 ERA, while mostly working in relief. 


Kevin Slowey earns first win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Despite giving up three hits in the ninth inning, Marlins pitcher Kevin Slowey was able to hold the Phillies scoreless in his one inning of work and earn his first win in his team's 8-5, 10-inning victory Wednesday.

Slowey (1-0) gave up a single to the first batter he faced, though the runner was thrown out trying to stretch the hit into a double. That out proved fortuitous, as Slowey gave up two more singles with two outs but escaped the inning with no damage done. He owns a 4.65 ERA and 21:8 K:BB ratio in 31 innings after stringing together five straight scoreless outings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Marlins could also opt to bring a minor-leaguer up to make Wednesday's start. Whoever makes the start could be auditioning for a long-term spot in the rotation if Fernandez's elbow injury is ruled to be serious.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

He surrendered three runs in the first inning and two more in the third, and he finished the game charged with five runs on five hits and a pair of walks in four innings.
