Phillies pitcher Vince Velasquez allowed three earned runs on two his and three walks while striking out three in Sunday's loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.
Velasquez has a 4.70 ERA this Spring after pitching to a 4.91 ERA last season. He has the inside track on a spot in the Philadelphia starting rotation, but that has more to do with their lack of internal options than his recent performance.
Vince Velasquez allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out eight over five innings in Tuesday's win over the Braves.
Velasquez has pitched to very mixed results this season and has not been pitching deep into games. He does have 121 strikeouts over 108 2/3 innings, but his 4.89 ERA shows how inconsistent he has been. He is currently scheduled to get another start this week when he takes on the Indians in Cleveland.
Phillies starter Vince Velasquez allowed four earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Sunday.

Phillies starter Vince Velasquez allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out five over three innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Tuesday.
Velasquez was at 67 pitches after three innings, and Phillies manager Gabe Kapler apparently didn't like what he saw and decided to ride a fresh bullpen for the rest of the game. It turned out to be the right decision as the Phillies went on to win 6-2.
