Phillies' Carlos Ruiz staying fresh this spring
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz won't be used much this spring, according to MLB.com.

The 36-year-old won't catch much during camp in order to keep him fresh. Manager Ryne Sandberg confirmed that the team has a plan with Ruiz. "We kind of have a program for him," Sandberg said. "I'm going to get him behind the plate as needed the first half of Spring Training here. Get him to DH the other games. We also have a chance to get him some at-bats when they start [in the Minor League camp]."

Ruiz is on board with the move. "That's the plan until the middle of Spring Training, to be in good shape for the end of the season," Ruiz said. "I'm still catching bullpens in the morning and doing all my work. To keep fresh."

Ruiz hit .252/.347/.370 over 381 at-bats last season.

Phillies ace Hamels throws two scoreless innings in spring debut
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels, who is seeking a trade, took the hill for the first time this spring Friday against the Yankees. Amid rainy conditions, the left-hander allowed one hit and no walks, while striking out two in two shutout innings.

"I guess that’s what you want to do, get in there, throw strikes and execute," Hamels said, per The Philadelphia Daily News. "I’ve been in a lot of springs and I know what I’m supposed to do with a certain pitch count and the first game and trying to build up. I’m not trying to go out there and blow by everybody. I’m just trying to hit my spots. I wasn't able to do it as much. But if you’re able to throw strikes, then I think that works. I had a general area that I needed to throw it in and I think I was able to do so."

Phillippe Aumont's bid for spot on Phillies' roster not off to great start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies reliever Phillippe Aumont is out of minor-league options, so if he doesn't make the team this spring, he is subject to waivers. Thus far, however, his bid for a roster spot is not going well.

After allowing a run in his lone inning of work Sunday against the University of Tampa, Aumont allowed solo homers on consecutive pitches in the fifth inning of Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Astros.

"This is a big spring training for him as far as the Phillies go and him (being) with the Phillies," manager Ryne Sandberg said after Thursday's game, per The Philadelphia Inquirer. "He's had multiple chances and this is a clean slate opportunity for him in spring training coming in with opportunities and with some spots available.

"It should be a fresh start for him after the offseason. The biggest thing for him is to work ahead, and really, he has a good breaking ball when he can get to those counts. But sometimes he gets hit before he gets to those counts."

Phillies SP Cliff Lee having no doubts coming off elbow injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies starting pitcher Cliff Lee appeared to be brimming with confidence Thursday, as he said following his first start since missing the final two months of the 2014 season due to an elbow injury that everything is "so far, so good."

While some folks still might have some doubt regarding the 36-year-old's durability moving forward, Lee has no such doubts.

"I don't have any uncertainty," Lee said, per The Philadelphia Daily News. "I definitely have confidence and expect to go out there and be successful, and I'm doing everything I can to prevent something like that from happening again. That's really all I can do. There's no worry or uncertainty or anything like that. I'm just going to go out there and be confident and expect to have success and not really even think about it, to be honest with you."

Lee threw only 22 pitches (16 strikes) in two innings Thursday in his spring debut. He still has a long ways to go in getting back to his previous form, but Lee is confident it will happen.

"As a starting pitcher, you've got to go out there and throw a hundred-and-some-odd pitches, get deep into games to do your job effectively," Lee said. "Personally, until I do that I don't think that I've proven that I can do that yet. I don't have any doubts, but still you have to build up to do that and prove you can do that . . . I don't think anyone is going to know that I can do that until I go out there and show it."

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.
