CLEARWATER, Fla. — It's a split-squad Sunday for the Phillies, their lone such day of this lengthy spring. Charlie Manuel will manage a team of mostly regulars in Clearwater while Ryne Sandberg will take a group south to face Baltimore in Sarasota.

Darin Ruf is back in left field after a two-day absence from the field. Ryan Howard is starting his ninth game in nine days.

Here is your daily skinny on the day's Grapefruit League action...
