Phillies News And Notes: Frandsen Outrighted, Fifth Starter Spot Still Up For Grabs

frandsenbighitKevin Frandsen Outrighted To Triple-A

The Phillies made a bit of a surprising move today, outrighting infielder Kevin Frandsen to Triple-A. Frandsen must decide whether he wants to accept an assignment to Triple-A, or become a free agent.

The move is a little surprising considering that the Phillies have already lost Freddy Galvis to a staph infection, and Darin Ruf an oblique strain. Frandsen had been a productive bench player for the team over the last few seasons, and with the injuries to Galvis and Ruf, it seemed all the more important that the club keep him around as a reliable bat that they could turn to when needed.

Even more surprising is that young prospect Maikel Franco was already out of the equation after an unimpressive Spring, so Frandsen’s departure leaves the team without a true third baseman.

The move means that Cesar Hernandez, who has hit .281 with one double, two RBI’s and two walks in the Spring is almost certain to make the roster, and veteran Ronny Cedeno could factor into the equation as well.

Buchanon And Manship Continue To Battle For The Fifth Starter Spot

David Buchanon and Jeff Manship have been two of the more pleasant stories from this year’s Spring Training.

The two pitchers have had a pretty good competition between each other for the final spot in the starting rotation, with Buchanon throwing two scoreless innings today against the Toronto Blue Jays. For the Spring, Buchanon has allowed three runs in 12 innings, and has a 2.25 ERA.

Manship also has a 2.25 ERA through 12 innings. He’s drawn great praise from Ryne Sandberg, who described him as “lights out” earlier in the preseason.

This is a competition that has been neck-and-neck throughout Spring Training, and could very well come down to the final days.
