Phillies select South Jersey native Jeff Singer to roster


Prior to Tuesday’s game against the Mets, the Phillies announced that they have selected the contract of left-handed pitcher Jeff Singer from Lehigh Valley. In a corresponding move, right-handed pitcher Corey Knebel was placed on the COVID-19 injured list. Manager Joe Girardi said after Monday’s game that Knebel was dealing with flu-like symptoms and was unavailable to pitch.
