Philadelphia Phillies at Toronto Blue Jays
TIME: 1:05, Bright House Field
Media: Twitter and Facebook
Today is the last Spring Training game for the Phillies in 2013. And as they bid farewell to Clearwater, Charlie Manuel again has Ben Revere hitting leadoff, with Jimmy Rollins batting 2nd. I think today’s lineup is very close to what we will see opening day, except with Michael Young at third instead of Freddy Galvis (and obviously Cole Hamels at pitcher instead of Roy Halladay).
In minor league news, the Phillies released pitcher Jordan Whatcott and catcher John Hill. More info from Jay Floyd here.
Lineup: Revere CF, Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Brown LF, Nix RF, Galvis 3B, Kratz C, Halladay P

Is 2013 the last time we’ll see Chase Utley in a Phillies uniform?
Last week, I was having a discussion with an old friend about the upcoming Phillies season when he posed a question to me: Do you re-sign Chase Utley after 2013?
“Ask me in six months,” was my concise, detached response.
This type of exchange is not exclusive to my friend and me. All over the Delaware Valley...
During Friday's exhibition game at Citizens Bank Park between the Blue Jays and Phillies, CSN Philadelphia cameras caught a glimpse of Phillies Opening Day starter Cole Hamels in the dugout. Hamels, who sported a beard for most of the spring, shaved the beard off...but left his mustache, giving himself a stache that Tom Selleck would be proud of. Hopefully, the mustache sticks...
Forbes released their annual baseball team valuations today and the Phillies come in at number five for the second consecutive year, with their current value measured at $893 million. Despite staying put in the rankings, the number is a 23.5 percent increase over last year’s valuation of $723 million (which was a 19 percent bump from 2011).
Team valuations are up throughout the...
For a team that finished 17 games out of first place, the Philadelphia Phillies are quite confident they can regain the NL East crown they relinquished to Washington after a five-year run.
''The Nationals had a great year last year, but we had a lot of injuries,'' slugger Ryan Howard said. ''Call us old if you want to. If you want to sweep us under the rug...
Cliff Lee finished up spring training by having a little fun.
Soon after pitching four sharp innings against Toronto in his final tuneup, the Philadelphia ace teamed up with Cole Hamels and joined the Phillie Phanatic in shooting hot dogs into the stands.
''I asked if I could jump in there and get close to that action and see what it was all about,'' Lee said after...
Infielder Yuniesky Betancourt has signed a one-year deal with the Milwaukee Brewers, rejoining the team he helped win the 2011 NL Central title.
The Brewers announced the contract Wednesday.
The 31-year-old Betancourt was in spring training earlier this year with Philadelphia and batted .447 in 18 games while mostly playing shortstop. The Phillies already have All-Stars all around...
Yesterday I did a roster prediction for every team that is breaking camp in the Phillies system this week. Today I have no changes. Today they did play, and they did win their finale in Florida, a 7-2 win over the Blue Jays. The Phillies finish the Grapefruit schedule 16-15,...

Freddy Galvis homered and drove in three runs to lead the Philadelphia Phillies over the Tampa Bay Rays 10-1 Tuesday.
Galvis, who hadn't played an inning in the outfield in six professional seasons, made his first start of spring training in left field, a position where the Phillies do not have a set opening-day starter. The 23-year-old Galvis, usually a shortstop, went 2 for...
