Phillies' Aaron Altherr: Makes adjustment this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altherr has worked with hitting coach Matt Stairs to make an adjustment to his mechanics at the plate this spring, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports.

Altherr has lowered his hands, which helps him get to the ball more quickly. The German-born outfielder has had a good camp thus far, slashing .286/.390/.543 with two homers and a steal in 35 at-bats. He will open the year as the Phillies' fourth outfielder, but could be just an injury away from a shot at regular playing time.

Phillies' Aaron Altherr: Hitting well early in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altherr went 2-for-4 with a double, a triple and three RBI in Wednesday's spring training game against the Rays.

Altherr is off to a nice start this spring, having homered once as well. He missed a significant portion of the 2016 season after he tore a tendon sheath in his left wrist last spring. His power didn't seem to be there after he came back from the injury last season, but he is showing some early signs that he may be over the lingering effects of surgery. He is expected to open the season as the Phillies' fourth outfielder.

Phillies' Aaron Altherr: Expected to fill fourth outfielder role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Altherr has the inside track to be the Phillies' fourth outfielder this season, according to Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia.

He missed a significant portion of the 2016 season after he tore a tendon sheath in his left wrist last spring, eventually hitting just .197/.300/.288 with four home runs in 57 games. Altherr has been overly aggressive in the majors, striking out at a 30.4 percent clip last year, and he also became a heavy groundball hitter, seeing his flyball rate drop from 38 percent in 2015 to just 22 percent in 2016. Some of that decline could be because of his wrist, which likely needed more time to return to full strength after his surgery. He still has the enticing power and speed that made him a sleeper candidate entering last season, and he could surprise if he's healthy and gets an opportunity for increased playing time at some point.

Phillies' Aaron Altherr: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altherr is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Mets, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

Altherr is hitting a measly .161 over his past 30 games, so manager Pete Mackanin decided to give him the night off. Roman Quinn will slide over to fill his spot in right field, while Cody Asche rounds out the lineup as the left fielder.
