The Phillies announced their 25-man roster Saturday morning and it includes Rule 5 pick Ender Inciarte as the fifth outfielder, Phillippe Aumont as the final reliever and Humberto Quintero as the backup catcher.
Inciarte’s roster spot is tenuous, as the Phillies could choose to snag a more productive, proven fifth outfielder cut by another team before Sunday’s deadline to submit Opening Day rosters. Ryan Sweeney is one name to watch. He probably isn’t in the Red Sox’s plans. Casper Wells of Seattle is another.
Aumont makes the team over Mike Stutes, who did very little this spring and will go back to the minors to regain his form following shoulder surgery last season.
Quintero gets the backup catcher nod over Steven Lerud, who was reassigned to the minors along with Pete Orr and pitcher Zach Miner.
Delmon Young was placed on the DL retroactive to March 22. He likely won’t be ready until the end of April.
Here is a look at the full 25-man roster …
Starters: Revere, Rollins, Utley, Howard, M. Young, Brown, Mayberry, Kratz
Pitchers: Hamels, Lee, Halladay, Kendrick, Lannan, Papelbon, Adams, Bastardo, Durbin, Aumont, Horst, Valdes
