Mike Morin: 28 IP, 12.7 K%, 6.8 BB%, 5.79 ERA, -0.3 bWAR
Blake Parker: 25 IP, 31.6 K%, 6.1 BB%, 5.04 ERA, 0.0 bWAR
They were durable - Morin appeared in 29 games after joining the team in mid-July, while Parker got into 22 games after arriving on August 1.
They weren’t the worst relievers on the team - Both pitchers pitched well after first joining the team.
For those who were wondering why I was so interested in those ‘fringe’ DFA’d bullpen arms:— Alex Carr (@AlexCarrMLB) August 22, 2019
Blake Parker since joining the Phillies:
9.2 IP, 0.72 WHIP, 3.32 FIP, 14 K
Mike Morin since joining the Phillies:
14.0 IP, 0.71 WHIP, 2.85 FIP, 9 K
They’ve been EXCELLENT contributors.
My nephew really likes Parker - I don’t know why, but he insisted that Parker was the team’s best reliever.
As it turns out, winning teams like the Twins don’t often let high-quality relievers go for basically nothing. Perhaps because they were so frequently called upon, there were a few rough outings for both men. It was especially notable when they were used in high leverage situations.
I know the Phillies essentially lost 7/8 of their projected bullpen to injury, but surely we could have avoided Mike Morin, Blake Parker and Edgar García in the late innings of a pennant race, no?— John Stolnis (@JohnStolnis) August 31, 2019
Both pitchers were outrighted by the Phillies and opted to become free agents. It’s possible that the team will attempt to re-sign them as depth pieces, but if either one ends up pitching key innings in 2020, then something has (once again) gone horribly wrong.
