PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies avoided arbitration with a pair of right-handed pitchers, agreeing to one-year deals with former closer Hector Neris and starter Jerad Eickhoff.
Neris will earn $1.8 million while Eickhoff gets $975,000.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Phillies did not tender contracts to first baseman Justin Bour and left-hander Luis Avilan, allowing the players to become free agents.
Both players were acquired in trades during the season and saw limited action in Philadelphia.
Bour hit .224 with one homer and five RBIs in 49 at-bats after batting .227 with 19 homers and 54 RBIs in 112 games for the Marlins.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Phillies have placed right-hander Ben Lively on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained lower back.
Righty Jake Thompson was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Lively's roster spot before Friday night's game against Atlanta.
Lively was 0-2 with a 6.84 ERA in five starts. He earned a spot in the rotation coming out of spring training because of an injury to Jerad Eickhoff.
CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Jerad Eickhoff is expected to miss six to eight weeks with a strained lat muscle.
Eickhoff was 4-8 with a 4.71 ERA last season and spent time on the disabled list with back and hand injuries. He was slated to be part of Philadelphia's rotation.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Just call him "The Natural."
Rhys Hoskins hit another homer and Cesar Hernandez ripped a three-run triple to back Jerad Eickhoff, helping the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Chicago Cubs 7-1 on Friday night.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Nick Williams is sticking to his same, aggressive approach at the plate, no matter how pitchers are pitching to him.
With the way things have been going, why not?
Williams homered and had three more RBIs, Jerad Eickhoff pitched six strong innings and Howie Kendrick continued to increase his trade value with two hits and two RBIs as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-3 on Sunday.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Phillies manager Pete Mackanin was pleasantly surprised by his team's power display on Sunday.
"I normally don't bring notes with me," Mackanin said at the podium after the game, "but I got to try to remember all those home runs we hit. That was really something."
Freddy Galvis hit two of his team's six home runs, Jerad Eickhoff threw five shutout innings, and the Phillies topped the San Diego Padres 7-1 to break their five-game slide.
ATLANTA (AP) — Aaron Nola wasn't satisfied with becoming the first Phillies pitcher to last eight innings this season.
Nola tried to convince manager Pete Mackanin to leave him in the game for the ninth. That goal for a complete game will have to wait.
Nola allowed a run over eight innings, Odubel Herrera doubled in the go-ahead run in the sixth and Philadelphia survived a ninth-inning scare to beat the Atlanta Braves 3-1 on Tuesday night.
CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Jerad Eickhoff came to the Philadelphia Phillies as an extra and turned in a rotation centerpiece.
The Phillies acquired five prospects when they traded former ace Cole Hamels to the Texas Rangers in July 2015 — catcher Jorge Alfaro, outfielder Nick Williams and pitchers Jake Thompson, Alec Asher and Eickhoff.
Alfaro, Williams and Thompson instantly became the Nos. 2-4 ranked prospects in Philadelphia's farm system and are still highly rated.
ATLANTA (AP) — Mid-game rain washed away a promising start for the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.
Ryan Howard blasted his franchise-record 15th grand slam in the first inning and starter Jerad Eickhoff dominated early, but the Phillies wasted a six-run lead and lost 7-6 to the Atlanta Braves.
Eickhoff surrendered a solo home run to Atlanta's red-hot Freddie Freeman in the fourth inning after retiring the first 10 batters.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jerad Eickhoff made one mistake that equaled three others.
Eickhoff allowed four homers in Philadelphia's 15-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night.
Andrew McCutchen hit two solo homers, Jordy Mercer hit a three-run shot and John Jaso and Sean Rodriguez also went deep to help the Pirates split a four-game series.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff matched Nationals ace Max Scherzer and struck out Bryce Harper swinging three straight times. When Eickhoff left, Harper struck back against Philadelphia's bullpen.
Harper hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift the Washington Nationals to a 3-0 victory over the Phillies on Saturday night.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Bryce Harper looked simply bewildered during his first three at-bats against the Phillies, all ending in swinging strikeouts. He came through big in his fourth plate appearance.
Harper hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift the Washington Nationals to a 3-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.

A look at what's happening all around the majors Tuesday:
CHICAGO (AP) — Battered in back-to-back games, the Phillies came out swinging this time.
Tommy Joseph and Cesar Hernandez homered to back Jerad Eickhoff, and struggling Philadelphia beat the Chicago White Sox 5-3 on Wednesday night.
DENVER (AP) — Jerad Eickhoff was rolling along until he gave up a home run to the opposing pitcher.
Things went downhill from there for the Philadelphia Phillies.
Colorado pitcher Tyler Anderson crushed a home run off Eickhoff and the Rockies went on to beat the Phillies 8-3 Saturday night.
"In every game here every pitch is critical," Eickhoff said. "It requires all your ability to pitch here."
