"You want to show what you can do and try to take advantage of every opportunity," Phelps said, per MLB.com. "That's just good preparation for the season, because you never know how things are going to play out. That's a skill we try to develop. Maybe you don't know when you're going to get in there, but when you do, you try to perform at your highest level. I feel like I'm having good at-bats. I feel like I'm putting balls in play with hard contact."


Phillies' Cesar Hernandez has good chance to make team


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Phillies infielder Cesar Hernandez has a good shot at making the team's opening-day roster, MLB.com reports.

Hernandez is out of options and the team wants to keep him in the organization. He also has the ability to play second base, which is needed with Chase Utley nursing a sprained right ankle, and can play some at third base and shortstop.

"The way that he's playing, he's making a good case to be part of the plan and part of the puzzle," manager Ryne Sandberg said.

Hernandez is just 2 for 16 this spring but has drawn two walks and stolen one base.

"No pressure," Hernandez said. "I'm just playing my type of baseball, which is bunting, moving runners over, playing good defense and getting a clutch hit when I can."

Phillies transitioning Cesar Hernandez to utility role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2013) Phillies prospect Cesar Hernandez remains sidelined by a wrist injury for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but he is close to returning, director of player development Joe Jordan told The Philadelphia Inquirer. Jordan said Hernandez will play in center field once healthy since the team is hoping to develop Hernandez into a utility player.

Cesar Hernandez impressive since moving to outfield


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2013) The Phillies have been impressed with how well Cesar Hernandez has fared offensively since making the move from second base to center field, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Hernandez is batting .357 (15 for 42) with two doubles, five runs and six RBI in 11 games since making the move to the outfield.

"It is impressive," Phillies director of player development Joe Jordan said. "Obviously he's got a lot on his plate and he's trying to figure out a very important skill position. But he seems to be having fun and that's showing offensively."

Hernandez has been sidelined the last few games with a sore wrist, but it's not a major injury. Jordan remains convinced Hernandez will be able to play center field at the major-league level.

"I think the day is going to come when he is ready to do it," Jordan said. "Putting a time line on it is a little difficult. There are little things like playing balls off the wall and some other things that have happened that a more experienced center fielder would be able to do because they had been in that situation a few times. But the day will come when he's able to play center field in the big leagues."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"Cesar Hernandez is swinging the bat well," Amaro told The Philadelphia Inquirer. "There are some other guys playing pretty well, too, and they’re all on our radar screen. But Cesar is not going to come up and play for Chase."


Cesar Hernandez waiting on chance


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2013) The rapid development of second baseman Cesar Hernandez at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season could make the Phillies' decision regarding the future of Chase Utley a less daunting obligation. Hernandez has surged in his second stint with the team, hitting .333 with 10 extra-base hits, including an International League-leading four triples, and 11 RBI. He has also swiped nine bases in 10 attempts.

"I think he's headed in that direction," Lehigh Valley manager Dave Brundage told the Philadelphia Inquirer last week. "I think he still has a lot to learn. I still think there is more in his tank than what he's shown. He's got great tools. I think more power will come. Pitch recognition and his at-bats have been consistent -- his numbers speak for themselves -- as far as consistency."
