DENVER - The visiting clubhouse doors will open on Sunday morning, and the Phillies will mark a first in team history when they welcome a player back to the team during the same season in which he tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. Daniel Stumpf, a rookie reliever, is set to rejoin the Phillies at the conclusion of his 80-game suspension for using dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, an anabolic steroid that was created in the 1960s for East German Olympians. Stumpf is the fifth Phillies player to be suspended by Major League Baseball, which began drug testing in 2004.

The Phillies crushed two more homers Wednesday, and that is why they swept Atlanta with a 4-3 victory, but when they needed the tying run to reach base in the eighth inning, Maikel Franco did not swing. A 100-mph fastball zoomed past him for ball four. Franco flicked his bat toward the Phillies dugout, a challenge to the rest of his teammates to keep mashing the ball like they have for weeks. "He looks like he's more under control," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. "It could a byproduct of the fact that other guys around him have started to chip in, to where he doesn't feel like he has to do it all by himself.

The Phillies started the international free-agent period on Saturday by signing four of the top 50 available players, according to reports. All six of their signings came from Venezuela, more than any other team in baseball. The Phillies signed the South American country's best pitcher and two of its top infielders, according to Baseball America. All six of the free agents are 16 years old. Because of their dismal record last season, the Phils had the largest allotment to spend in the international market.

SAN FRANCISCO  - Zach Eflin threw his third pitch of the night, a 95-mph fastball that Denard Span tapped toward first base, and the rookie pitcher encountered immediate adversity. Ryan Howard bobbled the routine ball. Four batters later, the streaking Giants led. But, once six innings in a 5-4 Phillies loss were complete, the rebuilding team had learned quite a bit about Eflin. He eluded trouble as he pitched in front of the 444th straight sellout at AT&T Park. San Francisco threatened with a runner in scoring position in four of Eflin's six innings.

MINNEAPOLIS - For the fourth straight game, Andres Blanco started in the infield, and the implication to young players such as Cesar Hernandez and Freddy Galvis was quite clear. If they do not produce, the veteran Blanco will steal playing time. "They've already noticed," Pete Mackanin said. Blanco, 32, is not a part of the Phillies' future. It is reasonable to wonder whether Hernandez, who did not start for the third time in four games, is either. Mackanin needs offense, so the Phillies manager has opted for Blanco.

It took just five minutes on Monday afternoon for a 3-1 loss to Arizona to be decided at Citizens Bank Park. Jeremy Hellickson threw 10 pitches, which resulted in three quick hits. The first three batters scored and the Phillies were in a hole. Scoring more than three runs in a single game again proved to be quite an arduous task for baseball's lowest-scoring team. The Phillies have scored three runs in their last 35 innings. It has been a week since the Phillies provided their starting pitcher with more than two runs of support.

'HE'LL BE gone by the Fourth of July," the snowy-haired owner of the local hardware store said when I stopped in over the weekend. "They just said they're not going to cut Howard," I said. "Not Howard," he said. "The manager. Mackanin. They've got to get rid of him. " Just a little over a month ago the Phillies were seven games over .500, a half game out of first place, and Pete Mackanin was everyone's runaway choice for manager of the year. But this is Philadelphia, the birthplace of knee-jerk.

The Phillies, in the midst of a monstrous freefall, have reached a crossroads in their 2016 season. They are at the corner of Patience and Prodding, a tricky place for a team filled with young players whom the franchise would like to see develop into winning ones. There is a big difference between sticking with youngsters who are struggling and doing nothing about a baseball team gone bad like the Phillies have over the last month. Pete Mackanin is doing what he can as the manager.

The doors to the home clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park displayed clear instructions Saturday after another Phillies loss: Players were not mandated to report Sunday until 11 a.m., two-and-a-half hours before the first pitch. That is unusual; players typically arrive well before then. But Pete Mackanin has tried everything else to loosen his uptight roster that has descended into the deepest depths of bad baseball. Most of the Phillies still came to the ballpark before 11. They wished the dads in the room a happy Father's Day. The players stepped onto the field for some pregame drills, and shortstop Freddy Galvis pretended to pitch while catcher Cameron Rupp swung an imaginary bat. The team looked loose.

When Jeanmar Gomez trotted Tuesday night from the bullpen to the Citizens Bank Park mound, the most difficult of save situations awaited him. The Cubs, winners of 40 of their first 56 games, loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth inning. The heart of Chicago's lineup was due up. Gomez not only had to preserve a two-run lead, he had to record six outs to seal a 3-2 Phillies win. Pete Mackanin handed Gomez the ball. The Phillies manager retreated to the dugout and noticed a difference in the tranquil Venezuelan closer.
