by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Billingsley is coming off two elbow surgeries, and is behind to start camp. Billingsley was expected to compete for a spot in the team's rotation if healthy. The 30-year-old owns a career 3.65 ERA over 1,175 1/3 innings.

Phillies' Chase Utley able to workout on Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Phillies second baseman Chase Utley was able to work out on Tuesday, according to MLB.com.

Utley did not participate in workouts on Monday due to a sore ankle. He's expected to miss a few spring games due to the injury, but the fact that he was able to put in work on Tuesday should be seen as an encouraging sign.

The 36-year-old hit .270/.339/.407 over 589 at-bats last season.

Phillies' Ryan Howard cuts sugar from diet, drops 15-20 pounds
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard said Tuesday that he has cut sugar from his diet and lost 15-to-20 pounds, The News Journal reports.

Manager Ryne Sandberg said in February that he was impressed with Howard and his slimmer body. The first baseman finished 2 for 2 and made a nice play on a ground ball towards the hole in Tuesday's spring game against the Yankees.

"Getting into game situations now where you've got to put the crowd in effect and everything, picking up balls, that kind of stuff, reaction time, it felt pretty good," Howard said after the game.

Howard has worked with Charlie Manuel on his hitting and approach, and the results have helped the first baseman boost his confidence.

"It's definitely a great feeling," Howard said. "I'm confident in my ability, now it's getting the reps, getting the work in the game type situation and putting it all together."

Howard has struggled at the plate in recent years and hit just .223/.310/.380 with 23 home runs and 95 RBI in 569 at-bats.

Phillies' De Fratus spent offseason adding velocity to fastball
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies reliever Justin De Fratus spent the offseason working on adding velocity to his fastball after losing a little zip on the pitch last season, per The Philadelphia Inquirer.

De Fratus said he built up arm strength through a long-toss program.

“I look at long toss like weightlifting,” De Fratus said. “The only way to get stronger is to keep doing it. How do you train your arm to go faster? Well, you try to throw it fast. That’s how I did it.

“Knock on wood, I feel good. I’m ready to get after it to see if the work that I put into the offseason helps.”

Phillies' Harang opts to skip spring debut Wednesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Harang was scratched from his spring debut Wednesday against the Yankees.

Although Harang had an ice pack on his lower back Tuesday, according to The News Journal, he told reporters he will miss Wednesday's start because he needs to work on his mechanics and is not ready to pitch in a game. Harang added he does intend to be ready the next time his turn in the rotation comes up. 

Harang dodged questions about his back issues, but he did mention he went to see a chiropractor a few days ago to get his back realigned.

Kevin Slowey will start in Harang's place Wednesday.
