The roster also includes catchers Lou Marson and Tuffy Gosewich, outfielders Quintin Berry and Jeremy Slayden, and pitchers Andrew Carpenter, Tyson Brummett, Pat Overholt and Sergio Escalona.

    NJ according to what I have read he is throwing almost all fastballs, His velocity is suppose to be better than before the injury. The phillies are not letting him throw many breaking balls right now. does anyone think that the slow free agent market has anything to do with slow economic . Or they waiting for Boras to set the market.{I HATE SCOTT BORAS].
