The Phils beat the Blue Jays on Monday, team Canada on Wednesday and then loss to team USA today.
John Mayberry Jr. has continued his hot spring. He had another home run today against team USA. If he continues to play like this it will be tough to keep him off the 25 man roster.
In the 5th starter race the candidates are starting to become clearer. Happ had an okay outing against the Jays allowing 2 runs in 3 innings. Carrasco let up 5 runs in 3 innings during the same game. Kendrick retired the first 7 of 8 batters against team USA today, and looked to be in control. Then he blew up and ended up allowing 4 runs in the 3rd inning.
In other news around the clubhouse Chris Coste has been nursing a hamstring injury. Hopefully this won't affect him getting a roster spot come April 4th. I would hate to see him go back down to the minors after all he has done.
Jayson Werth has been taking it slow with his shoulder injury. He plans on taking BP today and being in the lineup tomorrow.
That's all for now. Now that Spring Break has finally started I hope to have some new material on this blog. Stay tuned for in depth looks at each position and also a closer look at the 5th starter race. So make sure to bookmark this page and continue to check back to see whats new.
