Mathieson among Phillies' cutsNews: The Phillies have optioned pitcher Scott Mathieson and outfielders Quintin Berry and Drew Naylor to Triple-A, pitchers J.C. Ramirez and Yohan Flande to Double-A and pitcher Jesus E. Sanchez to Class A on Monday. The other players reassigned were: pitchers Phillippe Aumont, Joe Savery and Bill White; catchers Tuffy Gosewisch, Kevin Nelson, and John Suomi; shortstop Freddy Galvis; and outfielders Tyson Gillies and Chris Duffy. Analysis: Mathieson, Berry, Aumont, Savery and Gillies are the biggest names here. They have potential as keeper stashees. Aumont has the most value as an elite prospect. All of these players are opening in the minors, though, so ignore them in most Fantasy leagues.
Phillies announce spring invitesNews: The Phillies invited 20 players to spring training, including top prospects Domonic Brown, an outfielder, and Phillippe Aumont, a pitcher. Also invited were pitchers Brian Rosenberg, Joe Savery, Ryan Vogelsong, Ehren Wassermann and Bill White; catchers John Suomi, Dane K. Sardinha, Paul Hoover, Kevin Nelson and Tuffy Gosewisch; infielders Ozzie Chavez, Freddy Galvis, Cody Ransom, Andy Tracy and Wilson Valdez; and outfielders Tyson Gillies, Chris Duffy and Dewayne Wise. Analysis: Brown, Aumont and Savery are long-term keeper prospects worth stashing this year. Gillies could be one, too. The rest of these players are merely organizational depth and don't figure to impact Fantasy leagues this season. Ignore them on Draft Day.
