Blanton to be examined by team doc tomorrow

Wednesday, March 31, 2010, 3:39 PM
The Phillies received another piece of bad news today, as righthander Joe Blanton pulled up short during his bullpen session with an injured abdominal muscle. Blanton, who allowed 11 runs in his most recent outing, was scheduled to pitch again on Saturday in an exhibition against the Pirates. His... Read more

Lidge has cortisone injection

Wednesday, March 31, 2010, 10:20 AM
Apparently, there is an explanation for Brad Lidge's poor arm strength thus far this spring. According to team doctor Michael Ciccotti, who briefed reporters this morning, the Phillies' closer has had soreness on the exterior of his elbow, which prompted the club to give him a cortisone injection yesterday...

All signs point to Moyer in rotation, Kendrick in 'pen

Tuesday, March 30, 2010, 3:27 PM
It likely won't be announced until later this afternoon, but the Phillies' decision to remove righthander Kyle Kendrick from his start against the Astros after two innings would seem to confirm what has been apparent for the last week: veteran lefthander Jamie Moyer will start the season in the rotation...

Lidge: "I feel good"

Tuesday, March 30, 2010, 1:34 PM
Brad Lidge allowed one hit, one unearned run and walked one in an inning of work in a minor league game today. Lidge, recovering from knee and elbow surgeries, made his third appearance of the spring. Lidge threw 20 pitches, 10 for strikes. “It felt good," Lidge said. "Right now... Read more

On Kendrick, Lidge, Romero, Ibanez, Werth

Tuesday, March 30, 2010, 12:04 PM
1) Kyle Kendrick pitches today against the Astros, so it would make sense if Charlie Manuel, Rich Dubee and Ruben Amaro Jr. met yesterday morning to finalize their plans for the young righthander. I'll be surprsied if tomorrow isn't the day we find out the identity of the Phillies' fifth starter. 2)... Read more

Romero looks sharp in competitive debut

Monday, March 29, 2010, 2:06 PM
It was supposed to be J.C. Romero's first game since elbow surgery, but a day-long thunder storm that finished its trek through the Tampa Bay area this morning wiped out the minor league Phillies' tilt against the Yankees. Instead, Romero faced a team filled with Phillies prospects, and looked much... Read more

First look at the rotation. . .

Monday, March 29, 2010, 9:37 AM
Less than a week to go before Opening Day and we still haven't been told whether Jamie Moyer or Kyle Kendrick will enter the season as the No. 5 starter. I'd expect that word to come soon, perhaps as soon as today, for sure by Wednesday. Kendrick is scheduled to start against the Astros tomorrow, but... Read more

As the final week of spring training begins, the Phillies have trimmed their roster to 31 players in camp. Outfielder John Mayberry Jr. was optioned to the minor league. Catcher Dane Sardinha and infieler Ozzie Chavez were sent to minor league camp. Here is today's lineup vs. Pittsburgh: Rollins... Read more

Victorino's power potential

Friday, March 26, 2010, 11:23 AM
Earlier this spring, I asked Charlie Manuel if he'd be surprised if at some point in the near future Shane Victorino rattles off a season in which he hits 20, 25 home runs. "I wouldn't be surprised at all," he responded, "because he has that kind of strength." Look, nobody will... Read more
