The Phillies placed Rule 5 pick Travis Blackley on waivers and reassigned lefthander Vic Darensbourg and righthander Gary Knotts to minor-league camp.

That leaves 27 healthy players in camp:

Pitchers (11): Brett Myers, Cole Hamels, Jamie Moyer, Kyle Kendrick, Adam Eaton, Tom Gordon, J.C. Romero, Ryan Madson, Chad Durbin, Clay Condrey and J.D. Durbin.
Catchers (2): Carlos Ruiz and Chris Coste.
Infielders (8): Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, Pedro Feliz, Greg Dobbs, Eric Bruntlett, Wes Helms and Ray Olmedo.
Outfielders (6): Pat Burrell, Shane Victorino, Geoff Jenkins, Jayson Werth, So Taguchi and Chris Snelling.

The Phillies have just 11 pitchers in camp, which leads me to believe they feel they can find more pitching help before the season starts. Because right now the Phillies have J.D. Durbin as their 11th pitcher. He is 0-4 with a 12.33 ERA. He has allowed eight homers in 15 1/3 innings, so it's tought to imagine the Phillies are comfortable having 11 pitchers -- one fewer than they probably would prefer -- especially if Durbin is that 11th man.

Lefthander Mike Zagurski likely needs Tommy John surgery. He injured his left elbow the other day throwing in a minor-league game.
