3/3/2015 | Buchanan has no issue with flying below radar

Phillies right-hander David Buchanan entered Spring Training last year as a last-minute invite to camp and a relative unknown outside the organization.

3/3/2015 | Howard focused on nothing but positives

Ryan Howard could have come to Phillies camp last month in a miserable mood and with a scowl on his face. Howard's offseason included a lawsuit between himself and his family, a concerted effort by the organization to trade him and a local radio interview in which his general manager said the Phillies would be better without him. But Howard showed up with a smile, and unless he is putting on an Oscar-worthy performance, he has maintained an upbeat appearance.

3/2/2015 | Spring may bring final chance with Phils for Aumont

Phillippe Aumont seems to have made a few thousand adjustments to his delivery since he joined the Phillies following the Cliff Lee trade with Seattle in 2009, all of which led to what could be the righty's last chance with the team.


3/1/2015 | Phillies get 'cobwebs out' in spring-opening exhibition loss

The Phillies scheduled an exhibition against the University of Tampa, which is the No. 1 Division II baseball team in the country. The club wanted to give its younger players and non-roster invitees some work against the wide-eyed kids before opening the Grapefruit League season Tuesday against the Yankees. Philadelphia lost, 6-2.


3/1/2015 | Utley won't play in Grapefruit League opener

3/1/2015 | Phillies first to try out pace of play clock initiative
