News
Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown is looking to return to form in 2015, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer

In order to do that, Brown has been working with former Phillies third baseman Mike Schmidt during camp. Schmidt is hoping to get Brown to cut down on his uppercut swing, but he's also hoping to help the outfielder mentally. "I hope to get [Brown] thinking positive again," Schmidt said. Schmidt mentioned that he would love to see Brown take home the comeback player of the year award when the season ends.

Brown admits his swing can lead to issues when he's off, but feels confident Schmidt can get him back on the right track. "When it's right, it's right. But when it's not, you need a guy who has that nice downhill swing to get you back right, and Mike Schmidt has that."

The 27-year-old Brown hit .235/.285/.349 over 473 at-bats last year.

News
Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard is working on his swing, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer

Howard has spent time working with Charlie Manuel during camp. Manuel was brought in as spring training hitting instructor. Manager Ryan Sandberg has noticed the change in Howard's approach already. "As far as making some adjustments there, to really zone in to something that can really be productive for him and a little bit more consistent," Sandberg said. "I think there has been a little tweaking going on there."

Howard apparently has looked different at the plate. His stance has been described as "looser" and his hands are much lower when he starts his swing. 

The 35-year-old hit .223/.310/.380 over 569 at-bats last year.

News
The Phillies know Carlos Ruiz will be their opening day starter behind the plate. However, manager Ryne Sandberg is unclear as to who will backup Ruiz when the season begins, reports Philly.com.

"That's one of the areas in camp I think there's some competition," Sandberg said. "[I] need some game reps and game situations to really see them. I like the way that they're all going about it as a group. To get them into games and see how that goes, that will play big in that decision."

Cameron Rupp, Koyie Hill and John Hester are all vying for the position. Rupp is considered the favorite, according to the report, with the most pro experience, hitting .183 with six RBI and four runs scored in 60 plate appearances last season.

"Nothing's handed to anybody," Rupp said, "so I come out every day looking to get better, work on things that I need to improve on, and put my best foot forward."

News
Phillies pitcher David Buchanan is "working on being a complete pitcher," manager Ryan Sandberg said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The team's coaches spoke with Buchanan in the fall about command and pitch sequencing, executing bunts and thwarting would-be base-stealers, and Sandberg noted while examining the players that arrived early that the pitcher had taken the advice to heart.

"My biggest goal [this spring] is to show our front office and our coaches that I can throw the ball over the plate," Buchanan said. "That's one thing I had success with last year. I wasn't walking guys. I was throwing strikes, and that's what I'm known for. That's why I succeeded in the minor leagues; I was throwing strikes. So that's what I want to do this spring training, is continue to do that, pound the zone, force early contact and keep the ball on the ground."

Buchanan is scheduled to pitch the team's Grapefruit League opener Tuesday against the Yankees.

News
With the news the Brewers are bringing back closer Francisco Rodriguez, Milwaukee trading for Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon is probably no longer on the table. Although, Papelbon doesn't seem disappointed he won't be dealt to Milwaukee.

“No, not really,” Papelbon said, per CSNPhilly.com. “I’m glad (Rodriguez) signed. I think he’s a talent that needs to be in Major League Baseball.

“I would have gone there if it was the right thing for me and if the Phillies felt it was the right thing for them, but obviously that wasn’t the case.”

The Phillies have also talked to the Blue Jays about a trade involving Papelbon, but the veteran closer would have to waive his no-trade clause to accept a deal to Toronto.

“Yes, Toronto, interests me -- if it interests (Phillies general manager) Ruben (Amaro),” he said. “I know some of the guys on their coaching staff. They’re a good team. If Ruben can do a deal with them, I’d be interested.”

While Papelbon would welcome a trade to a contender, if he stays with Philadelphia, he appears optimistic about the team's chances in 2015.

“If we come out and play the baseball we’re capable of playing then I plan on being right here and righting the ship here,” he said. “I want to right the ship here more than I want to leave. I’ll get more satisfaction turning this thing around and winning here than going somewhere else.

“My storybook ending here is sneaking into the wild card and getting hot in the playoffs with these Phillies.”

News
Phillies pitcher Jonathan Pettibone is well on his way to bounce back in 2015. The 24-year-old hasn't made a major league start since 2013, when the shoulder eventually required surgery and forced him out of action, reports MLB.com.

"It's a little tight just grinding through these past couple days -- starting to throw bullpens, stretching out my long toss and everything," Pettibone said. "It's come along great. We haven't had any setbacks, so that's definitely a positive."

Now, the road to recovery begins for Pettibone.

"Anytime after surgery, you're kind of uneasy about the whole situation," said Pettibone. "But I've been kind of staying positive."

Phillies pitching coach Bob McClure announced that pitcher Cliff Lee is slated to start in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer

Lee strained his elbow in 2014 and missed the final two months of the regular season. He's scheduled to pitch two innings in Thursday's start. 

“He’s thrown well," McClure said. "He feels really good, so he’s right on schedule.”
