Rookie Antonio Bastardo will get his second start tomorrow against the Dodgers, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said yesterday. But who knows when Bastardo will settle down from the excitement of his major-league debut Tuesday against San Diego? Bastardo, 23, gave up only one run in six innings to earn the victory. "I think it might take him two or three starts to kind of slow the adrenaline down," Manuel said. "He was wound up, but wound up in a good way. He definitely wasn't scared.

The Phillies? core players are all another year older in 2010, and Jayson Werth could be headed for free agency after this season. So, while the Phillies largely emptied their farm system in 2009 to acquire Cliff Lee and Roy Halladay, they hope that the remaining prospects will progress in their development, and give the team a chance to remain competitive beyond the next few years. This year?s spring training will offer the coaching staff a closer look at the players most essential to the Phils? future.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Brad Lidge, the Phillies' closer sidelined all season by elbow and shoulder problems, allowed two singles but no runs in one inning in his first rehab appearance with the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. Lidge, who pitched the first inning against Hagerstown, threw 15 pitches, nine for strikes. "That actually felt really good to get out there and the first time pitching in real competition since the postseason last year," he said. "I was definitely pleased by the results.

FOR HIS final appearance of the 2014 Grapefruit League, Jonathan Papelbon climbed atop the mound at Bright House Field wearing catcher Carlos Ruiz's jersey. The veteran closer proceeded to allow a line-drive single, then retire the final three batters he faced, sending the Phillies on to the regular season while dressed like Dan Uggla. The moment was a fitting one for the Phillies bullpen to end the spring. After spending the last two seasons as a glaring liability, the unit is one that the team believes can develop into a strength in 2014.

INDIANAPOLIS - Brian Bocock slugged a grand slam in the ninth and the Lehigh Valley IronPigs rallied past the Indianapolis Indians, 12-8, in the International League on Wednesday. Bocock also had a two-run double in the fourth. RICHMOND, Va. - David Mixon gave up two runs in six innings to lead the Flying Squirrels past the Thunder in the Eastern League. Eric Crozier belted a two-run homer in the seventh to tie the game and Jim Hill's RBI double provided the winning run as the Blue Crabs won the Atlantic League game at Campbell's Field.

What if we told you the Phillies had a guy in their bullpen who has converted 18 of his last 19 save opportunities and has a 0.89 ERA in his last 46 appearances? Would you want them to use him in the postseason? Would you trust him with the game on the line? Even if you knew his name was Brad Lidge? The Phillies insist that they trust their former closer, and there is no good reason not to. With Antonio Bastardo and Mike Stutes struggling as we approach the regular-season finish line, manager Charlie Manuel was asked last week how he'll line up his bullpen in front of closer Ryan Madson during the playoffs.

WHEN JAKE DIEKMAN stepped onto the warning track and began his 335 1/2-foot jog toward the pitcher's mound last night, it was officially time to wonder whether the Phillies' bullpen situation was out of control. This was the seventh inning of a game that the home team trailed by two runs. Due up were three righthanded batters, a species that entered the night having touched Diekman for a .282 batting average, .385 on-base percentage, and .391 slugging percentage in his career. Of the 14 righties that the side-arming lefty had faced in 2014, six had reached base.

WILMINGTON - Rey Navarro drove in three runs and Christian Colon, William Myers, and Patrick Norris knocked in two apiece Saturday night, helping the Wilmington Blue Rocks roll to an 11-0 rout of the Salem Red Sox in the Carolina League. Will Smith (2-1) earned the win, combining with two relievers on a three-hitter. The Riversharks rallied from a five-run deficit after 61/2 innings to tie the score, but a six-run uprising in the 10th gave the Bluefish the Atlantic League victory at Campbell's Field.

SAN DIEGO - While a franchise-altering trade hung in the balance, the Phillies completed one deal yesterday afternoon, their first major transaction of the winter. Veteran reliever Antonio Bastardo was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for lefthanded pitching prospect Joely Rodriguez. Bastardo, 29, was a pivotal member of the Phillies' bullpen for the last five seasons. He went 20-18 with a 3.72 ERA in 275 games (five starts), striking out 324 batters, while walking 125, in 259 innings.

WITH LESS than 90 minutes until last night's deadline, the Phillies still had not announced whether they had tendered contracts to their trio of arbitration-eligible players: lefthander Antonio Bastardo and outfielders Ben Revere and Domonic Brown. The move was expected to be nothing more than a formality; players who are nontendered automatically become free agents, and all three of those players are young and have value - even if it's not to the Phillies. Even if the front office did tender contracts to Bastardo, Revere and Brown before midnight, it doesn't necessarily guarantee all of them will remain with the team in the coming months.

The Phillies were expected to tender contracts Tuesday to their three arbitration-eligible players, although Antonio Bastardo, Ben Revere and Domonic Brown have the same uncertain fate as the rest of an unsettled Phillies roster. Bastardo, Revere and Brown could combine to earn $10 million in salary next season. The Phillies have until February to reach agreements with the three players before an arbiter can intervene. The Phillies attempted to trade Bastardo, who endorsed such a move, last July but could not find a match.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - There is no more appropriate cross section to illustrate Antonio Bastardo's maddening fluctuation than the previous eight days. He struck out six batters in two innings on Aug. 5; pitched a scoreless inning on Friday; suffered an 11th-inning loss the next day; rebounded with a scoreless inning on Monday; and endured the ignominy of a five-run disaster on Tuesday night. Ryne Sandberg heaped praise upon Bastardo for the better part of two weeks in July, a time when the Phillies shopped their lefthanded reliever.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - When the Phillies called Jerome Williams Sunday to tell him he would start Tuesday at Angels Stadium, the 31-year-old pitcher missed the call. It was his son Tai's fifth birthday; the Williams family visited a water park near Dallas to celebrate. He threw 60 pitches to complete five scoreless innings against Los Angeles, which entered Tuesday with the second-best record in baseball. Kole Calhoun bashed Williams' 63d pitch for a solo homer, and Ryne Sandberg came with the hook in the sixth inning after the 72d pitch.

TWO WEEKS ago, with the days leading up to baseball's non-waiver trade deadline winding down, Antonio Bastardo said he honestly hadn't given much thought to being traded and he wasn't worried about it one way or another. But less than a week after the deadline passed, with some time to reflect on it more, Bastardo may be just as confused as anyone else is that he's still a member of the Phillies. Prior to last night's game at Citizens Bank Park, Bastardo said he'd probably be better off had he been traded as opposed to wasting away with the Phillies.

By the time Grady Sizemore crossed the plate early Wednesday morning to mercifully end the Phillies' 2-1 win over the Astros in 15 innings, the effort of the man who started the game more than five hours before was all but forgotten. But Ryne Sandberg did not want Kyle Kendrick's strong work to go unnoticed. Kendrick pitched through seven innings for the first time in more than a month. He allowed one run, his best outing in 10 starts. Kendrick threw first-pitch strikes to 18 of 25 batters.

IF BEING around the same group of people, at home and on the road, in the dugout, clubhouse and on charter planes, makes a baseball team one big family, relievers are its band of brothers. They have their own hideout in every ballpark they enter - the bullpen, a place to mess around like a bunch of kids in a treehouse. They hang out together, joke around with one another, and like nothing less than to give up a fellow pitcher's runs. Antonio Bastardo did that last night. The veteran lefthander entered a game with the bases loaded but with a healthy lead.

ON MAY 28 against the Colorado Rockies, Antonio Bastardo walked four of the five batters he faced. He was booed off the mound. (The Phillies still won the game.) Two years ago, on the day Ryan Howard returned from his Achilles' injury, Bastardo entered the eighth inning of a scoreless game against the Atlanta Braves. He walked in a run and then served up a back-breaking grand slam to Brian McCann. Those are the moments most people are able to recall when they think of Bastardo's role in the bullpen in the last few years.
