Your 2011 Phillies Opening Day Roster: Orr, Martinez, Herndon In; Stutes, Young Out

The Phillies made their final 25 man roster decisions after this afternoon's exhibition game against the Pirates.  After the dismissal of Luis Castillo earlier this afternoon, Michael Martinez became a shoo-in.  In somewhat of a surprise, Pete Orr -- who managed a triple this afternoon, one of the Phillies two hits -- was selected.  Apparently, Orr's ability to play third base persuaded Charlie Manuel, in light of Placido Polanco's wonky elbow.

As expected, Chase Utley, Domonic Brown, and Brad Lidge will all open the year on the Disabled List.

Despite an impressive spring, the Phillies (did the right thing and) sent reliever Michael Stutes to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, along with utility man Delwyn Young.
