I wish some of these updates were positive and all about how great the team is performing this spring. Unfortunately, most of them are about our injured players and well, Joe Blanton.
-The Phillies are "cautiously optimistic" about Utley (whatever that means), and are hopeful that Howard will return by early May.
-Howard worked out today without the boot.
-The team is not as motivated to trade Blanton because they released Joel Pineiro.
-A scout said that Freddy Galvis looks "uncomfortable" at second base.
I wouldn't get too caught up on the Galvis bit. Several days ago, I heard multiple people say Galvis has played excellent at second, and it has not been an issue.
