• Phils cut three from spring camp

    News: The Phillies have cut catcher Jason Jaramillo, infielder Brennan King and catcher Pete LaForest from big league camp Monday.
    Analysis: Jaramillo has the potential to be a big league catcher, while the other two are not real Fantasy-worthy names. Ignore these guys in all Fantasy formats at this point.
  • 3B King among Phils spring invitees

    News: The Phillies signed outfielder Brandon Watson, catcher Paul Hoover, reliever Vic Darensbourg, 1B Andy Tracy and outfielder Val Pascucci to minor league contracts. They were invited to spring training, along with RHP Carlos Carrasco, 1B Mike Cervenak, RHP Ron Chiavacci, SS Jason Donald, OF Greg Golson, C Tuffy Gosewisch, C Tim Gradoville, 3B Brennan King, RHP Gary Knotts, C Lou Marson, LHP Brian Mazone, LHP Josh Outman, LHP Joe Savery and SS Casey Smith.
    Analysis: King is nothing more than organizational depth at this point of his career. Ignore him in all Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
  • Phillies make some minor cuts

    News: The Phillies optioned LHP Eude Brito and LHP Fabio Castro to minor-league camp. Also, they reassigned 1B Brennan King and C Dusty Wathan to minor-league camp.
    Analysis: Brito will likely be in the Triple-A rotation, serving as a possible emergency big-league fill-in. Castro is a decent young arm, but he has work to do. King and Wathan are not worth considering in any format at this point. Ignore these guys on Draft Day.
  • Phils hand out 19 spring invites

    News: The Phillies invited the following non-roster players to spring training: INF Andrew Beattie, RHP Joe Bisenius, OF Ron Calloway, RHP Ryan Cameron, LHP Jim Crowell, RHP Kane Davis, RHP Kyle Drabek, RHP John Ennis, RHP Jeff Farnsworth, OF Greg Golson, C Tim Gradoville, LHP J.A. Happ, C Jason Hill, C Jason Jaramillo, 3B Brennan King, C Lou Marson, LHP Brian Mazone, 1B Randall Simon, C Dusty Wathan.
    Analysis: None of these players is expected to make the team. Even the mid-level prospects in this group can be ignored on Draft Day in Fantasy leagues at this point.
