Roy Halladay scattered two hits over four innings, striking out two in four innings of work as the Phillies beat the Nats 6-3.
During the game, Todd Zolecki reported that Delmon Young is aiming for a mid-April return. Zolecki insinuated that Dom Brown is likely to start the year as the team’s right fielder and then move to left once Young is ready to return.
Obviously, this begins with Doc. Doc absolutely handcuffed the Nats today. Brown had two more hits and Tommy Joseph went 3 for 4, raising his average to .462. Antonio Bastardo, Justin De Fratus, and Jake Diekman combined for three scoreless innings, scattering two hits and striking out five.
Areas of Opportunity
Chad Durbin was really the only Phil to struggle today. Durbin gave up three earned in one inning of work.
BEST OF MAXIM
Darin Ruf is hitting .130 this spring and seemingly every time he comes to the plate, he faces an 0-2 or 1-2 count. The man we had such high expectations for has fallen out of favor because of his inability to hit through 10 games, but more so because of his poor defense in left field. Ruben Amaro admitted Wednesday that Ruf will need to improve to make the team.

Phillies’ #9 Prospect Tyson Gillies, Photo- Jay Floyd
Phillies outfield prospect Tyson Gillies is a very skilled player that has had some well documented ups and downs in recent years. Being traded, bouncing back from several injuries and a return from a suspension have induced plenty of emotion from the lefty batter, but an opportunity to play for his home country of Canada...
The Philadelphia Phillies newly acquired left handed pitcher John Lannan had his second impressive start yesterday in Bradenton against the Pirates. Lannan was signed by the Phillies in December to be the team’s number 5 starter. There is reason to believe that he will thrive in that role and could be better than expected.
Since Rich Dubee became the Phillies pitching coach, he...
Billy the Philly Fan and Steve from My Two Cents rant about today’s Grapefruit League game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals. They said that Roy Halladay was a contender while Stephen Strasburg was a pretender and much more!
Well, there's plenty to discuss today. Darin Ruf had an awful day yesterday, and I think his roster spot is in real jeopardy. This is probably the biggest worry I have right now about this team, as I'm genuinely worried about Mayberry and Nix even in a platoon. I'm also...
The Phillies pulled above .500 for the spring with yesterday's 6-3 win over the Washington Nationals. Roy Halladay dealed over four innings, despite a little controversy surrounding his throw behind OF Tyler Moore. Halladay said after his outing that the pitch slipped, but many are wondering about this claim. Earlier...

If there was a bounce back "team" this season it would be the Fightin’ Phils. They have more guys who underperformed or battled injuries in 2012 than you can shake a stick at. Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, and new addition Michael Young come to mind. But the one guy whose bounce back season could be the key to winning for both the Phillies and your fantasy roster is Roy...
