Falter to stretch out at Lehigh Valley; Torreyes leaves the organization

Bailey Falter (0-1, 4.91) wasn’t exactly putting himself into any postseason awards discussions in his four games with the Phillies, but that’s not why he was moved to Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Instead, the Phillies looked around the organization and saw that there is no real depth to the starting rotation, meaning that if a […]
