Spring Training is underway, and the biggest story out of Phillies camp is improved health.
- The Phillies could really use a healthy Seranthony Dominguez in their bullpen, and the reliever intends to be there on Opening Day.
- After a season cut short by injury, Jake Arrieta says he’s 100 percent healthy and ready to live up to expectations.
- Speaking of injuries, Joe Girardi knows the Phillies suffered quite a few last season. He’s looking for ways to make sure that doesn’t happen again in 2020.
- This past offseason, Major League Baseball proposed a new rule where pitchers had to face a minimum of three batters. On Wednesday, they made it official.
- Many people expressed displeasure with the proposed expanded playoffs. Buster Olney of ESPN+ ($) explains why that hatred is misplaced.
Carlos Correa is in great shape, and without the benefit of trash can banging, he’ll need to be.
