CLEARWATER, Fla. - The official diagnosis was rotator-cuff tendinitis with slight fraying. That might sound a bit ominous, especially if you combine it with a glance at the three walks and three runs Kyle Kendrick allowed yesterday in his first competitive action since a sore shoulder ended his 2013 season midway through September. But all is well, the 29-year-old righthander said after he pitched two innings against the Tigers in his Grapefruit League debut, and that must continue to be the case for the Phillies to avoid an early-season emergency situation in their rotation.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The first pitch of Phillies spring training was reserved for Cole Hamels, an honor bestowed on the franchise's highest-paid player and cornerstone. But while Roberto Hernandez christened the exhibition season with a fastball at 1:08 p.m. Wednesday at Bright House Field, Hamels relaxed. He had passed an important test five hours earlier. There was no pomp and circumstance for Hamels' first bullpen session Wednesday morning. The team and its pitcher brimmed with optimism.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cole Hamels would like to take this opportunity to clear something up. He is not injured. He never had an injury in Clearwater this month. But when the Phillies opened the Grapefruit League season yesterday afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays, Hamels wasn't scheduled to pitch. He's not on the docket for the rest of the week, either. Hamels is, however, continuing to take the steps necessary to pitch in games in 2014. Yesterday, he took a step as important as any other while morning rush-hour traffic was still backed up on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and the dew was still present on the sun-bleached grass at the Carpenter Complex.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - Ethan Martin exited yesterday's game against the Blue Jays in Dunedin with right shoulder discomfort. Martin was visited by the Phillies' coaching and training staff twice during the fifth inning of the exhibition game against the Blue Jays. He walked off with a trainer at the conclusion of the second meeting. Martin will be examined by the team's medical staff this morning. "I just felt a little discomfort warming up and after that I didn't have much on it," Martin said.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - The following is a list of the 11 players acquired by three teams when they traded away Cliff Lee in the last 5 years: Jason Knapp, Jason Donald, Carlos Carrasco, Lou Marson, Tyson Gillies, Phillippe Aumont, J.C. Ramirez, Justin Smoak, Josh Lueke, Blake Beaven and Matthew Lawson. None of those players is a major league All-Star. In fact, only two have a very good chance at being on any big-league roster when the season gets underway. The Phillies aren't likely to trade Cliff Lee any time soon.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - You won't find David Buchanan's name on any of those Top Prospects lists that garner so much publicity this time of year. You won't find newspapers that update his every move. Nevertheless, while Buchanan might not be Jesse Biddle, he just might make his major league debut before the Phillies' top pitching prospect. In a perfect world, at least according to his employer's perspective, the 24-year-old righthander will spend the entire season at Triple A Lehigh Valley, where he made six starts in 2013 after a late-season promotion from Reading.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - It wasn't as important as the signing of A.J. Burnett or the news that Cole Hamels would be a little bit behind in this spring-training camp because of shoulder tendinitis. Make no mistake, however, people do care about who is going to be in the broadcast booth through the course of a 162-game baseball season. They care so much that the Phillies broadcast duo of Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn became known simply as Harry and Whitey, legendary voices that had an impeccable rapport, a perfect sense of timing, and an even better sense of humor.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - It's elevation time for Cole Hamels. After one final throwing session from flat ground Sunday under the watchful eye of pitching coach Bob McClure, the Phillies lefthander said he was ready for his first spring-training bullpen session from a mound, which is scheduled for Tuesday at the Carpenter Complex. "Obviously it's unfortunate with what the date is today, but I feel I'm right where I'd be at if it was Feb. 1 going into spring training," Hamels said. In other words, he's about 10 days to two weeks behind where he typically would be at this point.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cole Hamels feels like he's entering his first week of spring training. While that might be worrisome given that March is less than a week away and the regular season begins 5 weeks from today, Hamels remains unconcerned about being behind schedule. After throwing a high-intensity side session on flat ground yesterday, Hamels said he's healthy and simply playing catch-up. "I feel really good," he said. "I've made tremendous progress. " Hamels will get on the mound and throw his first bullpen session of the spring tomorrow.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cole Hamels has been in Clearwater for a few weeks, but he has yet to throw off the mound after experiencing some arm soreness early this offseason. Hamels is healthy; he's just behind the majority of the pitchers in camp. But that's not to say he hasn't been working at perfecting his craft at the Carpenter Complex during the first 2 weeks of workouts. Hamels walked through a pickoff drill with a conga line-like group of fellow Phillies pitchers this week.
