Pitcher Ken Giles made his debut with the Philadelphia Phillies on June 12, 2014. He quickly established himself as one of the team's most reliable relievers, posting a minuscule ERA over his first few weeks and earning the right to be the top set-up man for closer Jonathan Papelbon. On September 1st, he entered a game against the Atlanta Braves in the 8th inning after starter Cole Hamels had tossed six hitless innings and Jake Diekman had followed with a perfect 7th. Not to be outdone, he proceeded to strike out Jason Heyward, Emilio Bonifacio and Freddie Freeman in order, then handed the ball to Papelbon, who completed the combined 7-0 no-hit win with a perfect 9th inning.
On December 12, 2015, Giles was traded to the Houston Astros along with Jonathan Arauz in return for five prospects: Mark Appel, Harold Arauz, Thomas Eshelman, Brett Oberholtzer and Vincent Velasquez.
