The Phils and Rays lock up today in an ESPN feature match-up. Freddy Galvis is still day-to-day with a bruised foot. Chad Qualls and Jonathan Papelbon are scheduled to throw on back to back days for the first time this Spring today and tomorrow. Jimmy Rollins is a healthy scratch today on a scheduled day off.

Erik Kratz and Tim Kennelly were optioned minor league camp today. Kratz, .409/.409/.682 in 22 ABs, was having a solid Spring but the expectation all along was for Kratz to be the Iron Pigs’ catcher and solid insurance if Chooch or Brian Schneider face injury. Kennelly, .167/.167/.167 in 6 ABs, is a 25 year old Australian first baseman who has hit well for Lakewood but hasn’t had much opportunity in the higher levels.
