ATLANTA - It is too early to tell exactly when J.P. Crawford, a highly touted shortstop and the Phillies' top prospect, will reach the major leagues. But it is not premature to begin to gauge whether Freddy Galvis, the Phillies' shortstop all season, could factor into the team's equation at second base in the future. Galvis started at second base for the first time this season in the Phillies' 2-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night at Turner Field. Although interim manager Pete Mackanin insisted there was "no ulterior motive" to the temporary position change, it makes sense for the Phillies' front office to see Galvis play on the right side of the infield before season's end. Galvis "might play two or three games" at second base over the final two weeks of the season, Mackanin said.

Seven weeks removed from last donning red pinstripes, Jonathan Papelbon returned to Citizens Bank Park on Monday for the first time since the trade he so very much desired. The Washington Nationals closer embraced several former teammates and coaches during Phillies batting practice and later settled into a seat in the visitors' bullpen. But first, before the Nationals' 8-7 win in 11 innings, a game in which he blew his first save of the season, the never-shy Papelbon took his chance to critique his last organization, questioning the desire of those on the opposing side.

THE LOUDMOUTH from the South made his grand return to Citizens Bank Park last night with a team built for World Series success. But Jonathan Papelbon's pitching-rich Washington Nationals entered the day five games under .500 since July 30. With a combination of another loss and a New York Mets' win, Washington would have faced a double-digit deficit in the National League East. The Nationals' collapse - reminiscent of the 2007-08 Mets - has been borderline embarrassing. The Phillies' fall from grace in the last four years hasn't been much better.

THE PHILLIES' ability to win back-to-back games for the first time in more than two weeks - by way of a 7-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs yesterday - was marred by a likely season-ending injury. Cesar Hernandez' breakout season probably came to an end three weeks before the Phillies play their final game. Hernandez suffered a dislocated left thumb as a result of an ugly collision with Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo when the Phillies infielder couldn't corral a ground ball or stop his momentum, either.

A game-tying fielding error became secondary when Cesar Hernandez collided with the Chicago Cubs' Anthony Rizzo and tumbled to the ground. Hernandez, the Phillies' 25-year-old second baseman, winced in pain as a trainer ran out to first base to tend to him. A dislocated left thumb forced Hernandez from the Phillies' 7-4 win on Sunday afternoon against the playoff-bound Cubs at Citizens Bank Park. With only 18 games remaining on the Phillies' schedule, it's likely the injury to his catching hand will spell the end of the season for Hernandez.

At this point in his career, Ryan Howard, for all intents and purposes, is a platoon player. The aging slugger has not started against a lefthanded pitcher since Aug. 5, when the Phillies lost to Brett Anderson and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Citizens Bank Park. That is what in part makes Howard's recent struggles all the more noticeable. His 0-for-4 performance in the Phillies' 8-1 loss to the fourth-place Atlanta Braves on Wednesday extended his hitless streak to 29 at-bats, the longest of his 12-year major-league career.

NEW YORK - The Phillies couldn't have expected much more from Jerad Eickhoff's first three major-league starts. The 25-year-old righthander logged 19 innings and allowed only six earned runs. But unfortunately for the rookie starter, his last two outings have come opposite a crafty veteran pitcher the Phillies simply can't hit: Bartolo Colon. They failed to muster a semblance of offense against Colon for the second time in six nights on Monday, this time in a 3-1 loss at Citi Field.

BEFORE LAST night's game with the Mets, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin was asked what he anticipated from his newly acquired starting pitcher, Jerad Eickhoff, making only his second major league start after coming over in the Cole Hamels trade. "I'd like to see the same thing he did in Miami," said the manager. "Pound the strike zone, use all his pitches, throw all his pitches for strikes, keep the ball down. Today we're going to find out if he can repeat that. "Everybody has bad starts.

AFTER TAKING a called strike, Freddy Galvis got fooled by a changeup from Mets lefthander Jon Niese and barely got his bat around in time. The second-inning line drive left Galvis' bat and headed just to the left of the Phillies dugout. The crowd gasped. Galvis immediately put his hands over his helmet and turned away. He didn't step back in the batter's box for 20 seconds or so. Commissioner Rob Manfred, at last night's game at Citizens Bank Park, wasn't concerned about pace of play at the moment.

THE STRUGGLES of the Phillies' bullpen have been well-documented. The team's relief pitchers, ranked third in runs allowed in the major leagues, were given yet another chance to escort the Phils to victory last night against the New York Mets, as righthanded starter Jerome Williams bowed out in the sixth inning with a one-run lead. Williams left righthanded reliever Jeanmar Gomez in quite the precarious situation, with one out and runners on first and third. Initially, Gomez looked up for the challenge, retiring his first batter, Wilmer Flores, but then walked Michael Conforto to load the bases . A single pitch away from ending the inning, Gomez walked Travis d'Arnaud on a 3-2 count to allow the tying run. Michael Cuddyer, who was pinch-hitting for Mets starter Noah Syndergaard (8-6)
