Scott Lauber picked up on a crucial play during the Phillies win over Florida yesterday. Jason Donald scored a run off Jayson Werth’s hit, but he slid head-first into home to avoid the tag.
Asking Charlie Manuel about Donald’s choice, Lauber found the skipper wasn’t an advocate.
These are the types of things that add up in deciding a player’s fate. While Donald still has a shot of making the 25-man roster, his hopes appear to be slim, and something like that won’t help him at all. Just an interesting tidbit to pick up in what can be a long and confusing spring.
