Cliff Lee takes the hill today against the Boston Red Sox as the Grapefruit League schedule winds down. Mike Stutes will follow Lee in what is likely his last shot to make any sort of impression with Phillies management in what has been a disappointing Spring. Jeremy Horst, who has pitched well enough to be back in the coversation for a role as a LOOGY, and closer Jonathan Papelbon will follow Stutes.
Yuniesky Betancourt is not in the line-up and a decision must be made on whether or not the Phillies will keep Betancourt on the roster by today. If Betancourt is not on the Phillies roster by the end of the day, he can opt out of his contract. Betancourt was drawing interest from the Cardinals and Marlins and it was reported today that the Rangers are looking for a utility infielder. The Marlins presumably filled their need for a bench infielder with Wilson Valdez yesterday while the Cardinals and Rangers may have interest in Betancourt should the Phillies allow him to opt out of his contract.
