This week's pitching schedule

CLEARWATER, Fla. — We're at that time of spring training where innings are sparce and the pitching schedule says a lot about who the coaching staff wants to evaluate. With the starters up to 65-70 pitches, there are fewer innings in relief.

CLEARWATER, Fla. — We're at that time of spring training where innings are sparce and the pitching schedule says a lot about who the coaching staff wants to evaluate. With the starters up to 65-70 pitches, there are fewer innings in relief.

The Phillies do have a split squad day Thursday, so that provides some innings for lesser candidates. Pitching coach Rich Dubee will travel to Port Charlotte, Fla., to watch the arms there.

Here is the week's schedule:

Thursday vs. ATL
Joe Blanton
Antonio Bastardo
David Herndon
Chad Qualls
Dontrelle Willis
