Nats give Bruntlett, Whitesell invites

He hit .171 in 72 games for Philadelphia last season and has a .231 career average with 11 homers and 72 RBI over seven seasons with the Phillies and Houston. The 27-year-old Whitesell hit .194 in 46 games with Arizona last season. He played in seven games for the Diamondbacks in 2008, his first season in the majors.

Phils need DH this weekend


(5/20/2009) From the The Sports Xchange: OF Matt Stairs figures to get more at-bats this weekend when the Phillies face the Yankees in an interleague series at Yankee Stadium. Then again, maybe not. Manager Charlie Manuel said the lefty-swinging Stairs won't be the designated hitter against left-handed pitchers, and the Yankees are slated to start LHPs Andy Pettitte and CC Sabathia in two of the three games. It's possible the Phillies could call up a right-handed hitter from the minors. Otherwise, they would have to use either Eric Bruntlett or backup C Chris Coste as a DH.

Bruntlett continues hitting barrage


(3/23/2009) Phillies SS Eric Bruntlett had another nice day at the plate on Monday against the New York Yankees. Bruntlett went 3-for-4 in the leadoff spot for the Phillies and scored twice, driving in a run. He raised his spring batting average to .340.

Bruntlett homers on Saturday


(3/21/2009) The Phillies couldn't score on Saturday against the Twins until until SS Eric Bruntlett homered with two outs in the ninth. Bruntlett came on late to play first for Ryan Howard and homered, his first of the spring, in his only at bat. He's batting .333 in 45 at bats this spring.

Bruntlett running wild this spring


(3/8/2009) Phillies SS Eric Bruntlett, a candidate to get some starts at third base early this season if Pedro Feliz (back) opens on the DL, stole his fifth base of the spring Sunday at the Braves. At the plate, he went 1-for-4 with a strikeout.

Phils need RH-hitting 3B option


(3/3/2009) From the The Sports Xchange: Even though Phillies 3B Pedro Feliz might not be ready to open the season after Nov. 20 back surgery, manager Charlie Manuel still plans to use Greg Dobbs almost exclusively against right-handed pitchers. UTL Eric Bruntlett, prized infield prospect Jason Donald and veterans Marcus Giles, Pablo Ozuna and Miguel Cairo figure to play third base against lefties during spring training. "Is (Dobbs) going to play regular against lefties? That's going to be kind of tough," Manuel said. "At the same time, you don't ever say no. That wouldn't be right. But more than likely, he'll get anywhere from 200 to 300 at-bats (this season). If he gets more, that's fine because he's a good hitter and a tremendous pinch hitter. That's kind of like where he's at. I think I know what Dobbs can do."

Phils, Bruntlett avoid arbitration


(12/15/2008) Ten players eligible for arbitration agreed to contracts, including Washington outfielder Willie Harris, who got a $3 million, two-year deal. The Chicago Cubs agreed to one-year contracts with outfielder Reed Johnson ($3 million), right-hander Chad Gaudin ($2 million) and left-hander Neal Cotts ($1.1 million), and the Phillies reached one-year agreements with infielder Eric Bruntlett ($800,000) and right-hander Clay Condrey ($650,000). Also agreeing to one-year contracts were Kansas City infielder Esteban German ($1.2 million), Detroit infielder Ramon Santiago ($825,000), White Sox outfielder DeWayne Wise ($550,000) and Oakland catcher Rob Bowen ($535,000).

Bruntlett, Donald to be stopgaps


(11/20/2008) GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said he does not expect to go outside of the organization for help at second base, amid news Chase Utley needs hip surgery that could keep him out until May. Utility infielder Eric Bruntlett and prospect Jason Donald will likely hold down the position in Utley's absence, Amaro said.

Bruntlett rips RBI double in win

Bruntlett, a utility player who had only one hit in 16 at-bats dating to June 22, went 3-for-4 with two doubles and eclipsed his career high with 36 hits in a season.

Bruntlett has earned place on team


(5/8/2008) Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said SS Eric Bruntlett, who started with Jimmy Rollins on the DL, has earned a spot on the roster. After a slow start, Bruntlett was 7-for-18 with eight RBI in the recent four-game series at Arizona. He singled twice off Brandon Webb on Thursday.

Bruntlett solid in Rollins' absence


(5/7/2008) Phillies fill-in shortstop Eric Bruntlett has hit safely in 13 of his past 14 games (16-for-53, .302). He has two doubles, a triple and a homer in that span.

Last year's NL MVP hurt the ankle on April 8 against the Mets while scrambling back to second base on a pickoff play. Rollins has not started a game since he was hurt, but had pinch-hit four times, including Saturday's game against New York. The Phillies also placed outfielder Chris Snelling (left knee inflammation) on the disabled list. The Phillies recalled infielder Brad Harman from Double-A Reading and outfielder T.J. Bohn from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Eric Bruntlett is expected to see most of the starts at shortstop with Rollins sidelined.

Bruntlett plays better Thursday


(4/11/2008) Jimmy Rollins was missing from the starting lineup for the second successive game because of a sprained left ankle. He struck out as a pinch-hitter against Billy Wagner leading off the ninth. The Phillies played errorless ball one night after a sloppy performance without Rollins. Eric Bruntlett filled in at shortstop again after making two of Philadelphia's four errors Wednesday night -- both in a six-run third inning.
