It may be cold and rainy in Philadelphia but just turn up the thermostat a couple of notches, sit on the couch, and flip on your TV and watch the Phillies play some midday baseball from warm and sunny Clearwater, Florida to get that summertime feeling inside. The Phils kickoff their Grapefruit League action this afternoon against the Houston Astros at 1:05. It'll be your first chance Yuniesky Betancourt in a Phillies uniform.

Cole Hamels is your starting pitcher and will go up against a guy by the name of Lucas Harrell. Also scheduled to pitch for the Phillies are RHP B.J. Rosenberg, RHP Zach Miner, LHP Jeremy Horst, RHP Michael Schwimer and RHP Justin De Fratus.

The game will be televised on TCN and you can listen on the radio as well on 1210 WPHT.

Today's game will mark Chase Utley's first Grapefruit League action since 2010. Hopefully that's a good sign for how the rest of the season will go.
