Jim Salisbury says there are a few concerns the Phillies must address as they head into spring training. Among them, health and finding a power right-handed bat in the lineup. 2/9/13
The biggest issue heading into Phillies spring training camp. Is clearly health they need to know that they're gonna have a healthy Chase Utley healthy Roy Halladay. A healthy Brian Howard even healthy Delmon Young out right field but to me a couple under the radar concerns one. Defense I wanna see them play good defense in Clearwater. They are pitching based team and need to catch and throw the ball behind the pitching based team they could have defense -- question marks in right field. The defense of question mark in left field and a defense and question mark at third base so you wanna come -- they're making sure they can catch the ball and another matter to watching can't. This team is begging for a right handed power bat that outfield we're gonna watch Darin -- closely we're gonna watch Delmon Young closely. The Phillies hope that one of those guys can step up and provide a little right handed pop we should get some answers to where those guys stand in spring training.
