DUNEDIN, Fla. - The Phillies bench situation continues to be a work in progress. Former Phillie and non-roster outfielder Bobby Abreu, who earlier had seemed assured of making the team, has a sore shoulder. He did not take batting practice on Monday for the second straight day. The Phillies must add Abreu to the roster by Wednesday or he can request his release. He is 40 and did not play in the majors last season. Manager Ryne Sandberg is optimistic that Abreu can return Tuesday.

BRADENTON, Fla. - Cole Hamels was encouraged on Saturday after throwing batting practice for the first time this spring. Hamels threw two innings, consisting of 15 pitches each, at Bright House Field. He rested after the first 15 pitches, simulating game conditions, and then resumed, throwing his final 15 pitches. Hamels, recovering from biceps tendinitis and a fatigued arm, faced two minor-leaguers, lefthander Brock Stassi, and righthander Tyler Henson. "I feel great," Hamels said afterward.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - Cole Hamels said he felt optimistic after a bullpen session Wednesday morning at Bright House Field that included every pitch but his curveball. The lefthander is not expected to return to action until May because of biceps tendinitis and a fatigued arm. "It went really well," Hamels said. "I am pleased with now being able to build up my pitch count. " Hamels estimated that he threw 40 to 45 pitches. This was Hamels' third bullpen session after an 11-day layoff earlier while he was battling fatigue.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - Cole Hamels will not be pitching in a game in Clearwater before the Phillies leave camp next week. That's not entirely surprising news, given his slow progress this spring. Yesterday morning, with a week and a day remaining until camp breaks, Hamels threw "about 40-45" pitches in his third bullpen session since being temporarily shut down earlier this month. He said it went "really well. " Nearly 2 weeks removed from admitting he wasn't strong enough to face hitters, complaining of fatigue slowing his spring- training progression, Hamels gave himself the green light to do just that this weekend.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Clubhouse attendants yanked the fresh Phillies green caps and jerseys from lockers Monday and stored them for Thursday. St. Patrick's Day was postponed for three days. A few Phillies pitchers scrambled through the raindrops to the minor-league complex for indoor simulated games. It felt longer than two weeks until opening day. So manager Ryne Sandberg decided it was time to reveal a not-so-secret nomination. Cliff Lee will start March 31 at Globe Life Park opposite the Texas Rangers and Yu Darvish.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cole Hamels won't be ready on Opening Day, but he made that clear over a month ago, on Feb. 12, a day before pitchers and catchers held their first workout of spring training. Hamels could be ready at some point in April, however, depending on how he progresses in the coming weeks. Hamels threw just over 30 pitches in a bullpen session yesterday morning; it was the second time he threw off the mound in the last 5 days. Afterward, Hamels was excited with his progress in the last week, following an 11-day layoff due to fatigue.

BRADENTON, Fla. - And the Phillies' fifth starter will be . . . Jeff Manship? Maybe. A 29-year-old righthander with an undistinguished major-league career, Manship allowed two earned runs and six hits over four innings Friday in the Phillies' 6-5 loss to the Pirates, impressing manager Ryne Sandberg and pitching coach Bob McClure and continuing his strong spring training. He struck out three and didn't walk a batter. "His control wasn't as good as it's been, and he showed me he could still pitch without having his best control," McClure said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The news wasn't quite as troubling as it had been 6 days earlier, when Cole Hamels said he was fatigued and not strong enough to throw to hitters. But the reality remains the same: Hamels will not be in the rotation to start the season, his availability for April is in jeopardy and he's basically at square one of his spring-training regimen. The lefthander threw a side bullpen session yesterday morning at Bright House Field and said his pitching arm felt "really good.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Ten days passed without Cole Hamels' throwing from a mound. Thirty-five pitches in a March 1 bullpen session felt like a thousand to Hamels. That prompted the Phillies to alter a strengthening program to energize his fatigued left arm, a side effect of wintertime biceps tendinitis. Hamels rebooted Wednesday morning in the bullpen at Bright House Field. He fired 20 fastballs, and equated it to something he would do "the day before spring training. " That was four weeks ago for the rest of the Phillies pitchers.
