Tomorrow’s lineup

The Phillies open Spring Training tomorrow against the Pirates.

Prospect Jason Donald will play second base and bat seventh, joining a host of veterans from last year’s squad.  Don’t look too far into it though.  It’s just to get a few extra looks at him.  Here’s the rest of the lineup:

  1. Jimmy Rollins SS
  2. Shane Victorino CF
  3. Raul Ibanez LF
  4. Ryan Howard 1B
  5. Geoff Jenkins RF
  6. Matt Stairs DH
  7. Jason Donald 2B
  8. Eric Bruntlett 3B
  9. Chris Coste C

Jamie Moyer, Pitcher

The Pirates will throw nine relievers tomorrow, each of whom will pitch an inning. The nine, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, are: Chris Bootcheck, Matt Capps, Donnie Veal, Romulo Sanchez, Ron Uviedo, Juan Mateo, Craig Hansen, Evan Meek and Jesse Chavez.

Other notes:  Lefthander Jamie Moyer and righthander Joe Blanton will each throw roughly 40 pitches.  Jayson Werth, Pedro Feliz and Chase Utley will not make the trip to Bradenton.  Former Phillies pitching coach, and Comcast SportsNet analyst, Joe Kerrigan is now the pitching coach for the Pirates.  Mike Schmidt has been campaigning for Shane Victorino to make the U.S. team in the World Baseball Classic. Carlos Carrasco has decided not to pitch in the World Baseball Classic; he cited the Phillies’ fifth starter competition as more important.
