Phillies hoping for bounce back from Domonic Brown
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Phillies are hoping outfielder Domonic Brown can bounce back in 2015, according to MLB.com.

"One thing about Domonic is he did hit 20-some home runs one year. He has done it," club president Pat Gillick said. "I don't know if he's going to do it again, but he's one guy who has shown offensively that he's capable of it."

Gillick went on to add, "we want him to succeed, and if he's going to succeed, we want him to succeed here."

The 27-year-old Brown made Gillick look good on Thursday, going 2 for 5 with a double during the team's spring game. Manager Ryne Sandberg was impressed by the performance.

"He had four good at-bats, hit two to the warning track," said Sandberg.

Brown hit .235/.285/.349 over 473 at-bats last year.

Phils' Sandberg on Gonzalez's spring debut: Best I've seen him throw
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez didn't make a strong impression Thursday against the Astros in his first attempt to win a spot in the team's rotation. However, manager Ryne Sandberg wasn't just focused on the results of Gonzalez's spring debut.

“The best stuff I’ve seen since he’s come over here [from Cuba],” Sandberg said, per The Journal News. “It looks like he’s healthy. Looks like he has some zip on his fastball. That can get better as he goes here. Compared to last year, night and day.”

The right-hander allowed two runs on four hits in two relief innings. He entered the game after Cliff Lee threw two scoreless innings. Gonzalez struck out one and gave up a home run.

“It doesn’t matter about the line,” Gonzalez said through a translator. “My plan that I had all along was to show my work ethic today. I don’t look at the numbers.”

Phillies' Sandberg: Elvis Araujo 'impressive' in two spring outings
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Thursday that pitcher Elvis Araujo has impressed in his two outings this spring, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

"He was a bright spot today once again," Sandberg said after Araujo pitched a 1-2-3 sixth inning Thursday. "He just has that angle coming in with his height and he seems to pitch down in the zone. But that ball has a real nice angle to it, so he's been impressive the two times we've seen him."

Araujo made his spring debut in Sunday's exhibition loss to the University of Tampa, striking out the side in his one inning of action. He went 2-1 with a 3.42 ERA and 50:28 K:BB ratio in 50 innings with high Class A Carolina and Double-A Akron.

Phillies' Lee (elbow) says he 'feels normal' following spring debut
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies starting pitcher Cliff Lee threw in a game Thursday against the Astros for the first time since suffering an elbow injury July 31, and the veteran left-hander had a pretty decent outing in his spring debut.

Lee needed just 22 pitches (16 strikes) to get through two scoreless innings. He allowed a single in each inning, while issuing no walks and recording no strikeouts. He got four outs on grounders.

"I don't even know how many pitches I threw, but I think it was fine," Lee said, per The Journal News. "I was able to throw some fastballs, mixed in a couple offspeed pitches and got through it with two zeroes, so that's a good thing.

"It feels normal. So far so good."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Former Phillies infielder Placido Polanco says he's "90 percent" retired, according to el Nuevo Herald

Polanco did not play in the majors or the minors in 2014. His last game action came with the Marlins in 2013. He says he's keeping his options open just in case the right team calls. Polanco said the Tigers, Marlins and Phillies would interest him. He played for all three clubs during his career. 

Polanco added that he's open to joining a team as a coach or manager in the future. The 16-year veteran owns a career .297/.343/.397 slash line.
