3/13/21 : Prepping for Minor League Spring Training

Updated: Mar 15


If things go according to plan the Phillies minor league contingent will convene at Carpenter Complex and BayCare BallPark beginning April 2nd ... likely under the same Covid restrictions as are present for the ongoing big league camp. The Dominican Complex will likely also be open for business if not already operating. Full season minor league scheduled games are slated to start in early May.


In addition to the training in Clearwater an alternate camp will be run in Allentown for players who likely will be part of the triple A Iron Pigs roster and/or at the ready for the big league taxi squad ( 5 slots ) and as ready reserves if needed by the big club. I am unclear as to whether the alternate camp players will be able to play other teams while they are training. The expectancy is that a maximum roster of 28 players will train in Allentown till the Triple A season begins in May. The majority of that group is likely presently in Clearwater as part of big league ST and would depart for Allentown prior to April 2nd when Minor League ST is expected to begin. The separation of the camps serves two purposes ... it allows for compliance to MLB Covid guidelines and keeps a training group in close proximity to Philadelphia if needed.


There are presently 33 players in big league “mini camp” or are listed as Non-Roster invitees. Many of thosplayers are veterans who have “Opt outs” in their contracts if they don’t make the big league opening day roster. March 24th seems to be the magic date to exercise such clauses.


An additional 14 players from the 40 man roster will need to be placed at either Allentown or else stay on at Clearwater to continue training as part of Minor League Spring Training. That’s 47 players who’s continued disposition have to be considered.


We will try to cover the camp in Clearwater as best we can ... hard to do outside the gates, at least we will be partially Covid vaccinated in time for camp to start ... I’m scheduled for a Pfizer shot on March 24th !


Today the Phillies optioned LHP Kyle Dohy, LHP Bailey Falter, LHP Damon Jones, RHP Mauricio Llovera, RHP Adonis Medina, RHP Francisco Morales and OF Simón Muzziotti to minor league camp. That’s procedural though as they will continue to train in Clearwater and could also still be assigned to the Alternate Camp in Allentown.


Happy Day, Happy Baseball ⚾️
