Defensive Gems :
Second baseman Bryson Stott made a diving snag on a hard ground ball to his left for the second out of the sixth inning.
First baseman Rodolfo Duran made a nice stretch and pick of a low throw to end the sixth inning.
Catcher Rafael Marchan threw out a base stealer at second to end the seventh inning.
Mini Camp players on the roster today included pitchers Tyler Carr, Enyel De Los Santos and Jonathan Hennigan, Catcher Logan O’Hoppe, Infielders Luis Garcia, Darick Hall, Luke Williams and Bryson Stott and Outfielders Odubel Herrera, Matt Vierling and Johan Rojas.
The Phanatic spent the bottom of the third inning on the roof of Frenchy’s Tiki Bar after swaying to the song “Up on the roof” 😄 ... most creative mascot in baseball 👍
After he left the game Odubel and Charlie had a good conversation on the dugout bench ... I think these chats are invaluable.
Ronald Torreyes has made the team, according to Joe Girardi. Makes sense with Scott Kingery being optioned earlier today. Team needed another utility infielder.
Grapefruit League record is now 12-14-1
Phillies are back at BayCare Ballpark tomorrow against the Blue Jays ... 1:05 PM game time
Happy Day, Happy Baseball ⚾️
