CLEARWATER, Fla. – Jonathan Papelbon has high expectations for the Phillies’ bullpen in 2014.
Last spring was like so many springs that came before it for the Phillies. There were questions that led to distractions. Or distractions that led to questions. Or both. Either way.
CLEARWATER, Fla. – The Phillies aren’t exactly tearing the cover off the ball in the early part of the Grapefruit League schedule.
Five games in, they are hitting just .192.
A.J. Burnett will make his Phillies debut against his former team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, on Sunday afternoon (1:05 p.m./CSN).
