Sunday, April 21, 2013, 6:24 PM
Starting Monday, the Phillies will play 13 straight games against teams who finished 2012 with fewer than 80 wins.

Thursday, April 18, 2013, 5:34 PM
A short time ago, Ruben Amaro Jr. spoke to reporters for about 10 minutes. The key points: 1) The Phillies will fill John Lannan's roster spot tomorrow, likely with a reliever.
