Ruben Amaro Jr. Interview Excerpts

I spoke with Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. this week, prior to the Phillies Winter Tour stop in Lakewood. I asked Amaro about several things including his thoughts on how relievers like Scott Mathieson and Justin De Fratus might contribute to the big club in the coming season, about JC Ramirez’s recovery from off-season hip surgery, Charlie Manuel’s contract situation, about new BlueClaws manager Chris Truby and more.

Amaro also answers questions from Trenton newspaper reporter Josh Norris about Jon Singleton’s switch to the outfield from first base and his overall opinion on the state of the Phillies’ minor league system.

Check out the media player below to listen to excerpts of my time with Ruben Amaro Jr.
