Philadelphia fired manager Joe Girardi in June after the team started the season 22-29. Meanwhile, the defending World Series champions currently maintain the top Wild Card spot in the National League and have their sights set on making another deep playoff run.The three-game series continues Tuesday in Philadelphia.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Cardinals receiving trade inquiries on top prospect Nolan Gorman, Edmundo Sosa

  Cardinals receiving trade inquiries on top prospect Nolan Gorman, Edmundo Sosa It isn’t known if the Cards are close to a deal on either player, though it would seem like the scope of a trade involving Gorman would be quite different than the scope of a Sosa deal.Gorman is one of the game’s top prospects, and he has started his big-league career with a respectable 110 wRC+ (from a .229/.303/.430 slash line and 10 home runs) over his first 198 plate appearances in the Show. Under normal circumstances, the Cardinals wouldn’t be looking to move such a potential cornerstone player at all, except Gorman has reportedly been part of the club’s discussions with the Nationals about Juan Soto.

Tuesday's game is the first time these teams square off this season.

Reds planning to select righty T.J. Zeuch, will start Wednesday .
Zeuch isn’t currently on the club’s 40-man roster, though the club currently has a vacancy there. Assuming they don’t add anyone between now and Wednesday, a corresponding move will only be required to add him to the active roster. © Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports Former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher T.J. Zeuch. Zeuch, 27, is a former first-round pick, as the Blue Jays selected him No. 21 overall in 2016. He was considered one of the top-30 farmhands in Toronto’s system from 2017-19 but failed to live up to his reputation in the big leagues.
