Phillies face the Blue Jays in Clearwater today
Take early spring training games with a grain of salt is what the rule of thumb usually is early on but when you’re a younger player competing for a spot on a ballclub, you have to come out to play every day.
‘Phils Fan Jack’ reported on Brock Stassi as being a player that is showing his great skills in Spring Training and coming into this afternoon’s game, Stassi has put up some great numbers with 3 HR and 11 RBI so far while Aaron Altherr had a HR and 4 RBI himself.
It’s going to make it difficult for Phillies management to make the right decisions when it comes to who gets to head north with this team and who doesn’t.
Of course the Phil’s went out and splashed some salary money on some veterans for the outfield so, it’s made decisions a bit more interesting for this Spring Training.
Surprise, the Phil’s are 6-5 so far in Spring, even with Obubel Herrera, and others away playing in the World Baseball Classic.
The opponent today, the Blue Jays, are 2-8-1 on the Spring Training season so far.
