The Phillies had 45 out of 60 invited players report to camp today, with all pitchers and catchers reporting today except for Juan Cruz. Cruz’s agent reportedly gave him incorrect information, reported first by Ryan Lawrence. All other players are due in camp by Friday, a slightly accelerated timeline thanks in part to the World Baseball Classic.
The beat writers passed along some interesting interviews and tidbits. Here are some links to catch you up:
- Todd Zolecki reports that Rich Dubee thinks Roy Halladay is feeling stronger this year compared to last
- Ryan Lawrence looked ahead to tomorrow’s first workout with some questions
- Yong Kim put together a phenomenal photo gallery from Report Day which can be found here. My favs? Ben Revere long tossing a football and one of Mike Adams running with a clear shot of his tattoo.
- Miles Kennedy of the Phillies media crew posted one of the clearest early shots of the new BP hats in action
The Phillies first official workout for pitchers and catchers is tomorrow. Who else is excited?
