DUNEDIN, Fla. - On the list of things no Phillies fans want to see in the final days of spring training, watching a guy who might very well be the team's most popular player leave a game with an injury would rank fairly high. But that's what happened yesterday afternoon in Dunedin. Ken Giles, the 24-year-old reliever who provided must-see TV as a rookie last season with his triple-digit radar-gun fastball, came out after facing only one hitter during the eighth inning against the Blue Jays.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - A month ago, as the first reliever to come out of the bullpen in the first game of the spring schedule, Phillippe Aumont battled his old demons. He walked the first hitter he faced. And the second one, too. He stepped off the mound and tried to talk his way through it: "No, Phil, not again. " After the game, Kyle Kendrick and Kevin Frandsen found Aumont, the pitcher with the prized arm but embattled ego, and told him to relax. Forget about the past. Don't concern yourself with the future.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - The first week of the Jimmy Rollins Spring Training Saga began with the shortstop belittling the importance of exhibition play results, finding himself on the bench for 3 days, and then coming to terms with manager Ryne Sandberg amid the abrupt benching. The second week of the Jimmy Rollins Spring Training Saga began Tuesday, when ESPN's Buster Olney reported that there were "strong sentiments within the [Phillies] organization" that the team would be better off trading the shortstop.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Chase Utley shuttled into position and fielded the ball, then fired a strike to Ryan Howard during infield practice Wednesday morning at the Carpenter Complex. This spring, Utley hasn't been working out alone or taking ground balls while seated on a stool. In the first 5 days of full-squad workouts, Utley has been in line with every other healthy player in camp. The positive path will continue when games begin in Clearwater. Manager Charlie Manuel said Wednesday that Utley would start in the team's intrasquad game Friday and would likely be back in the starting lineup when the Phillies open the Grapefruit League schedule Saturday in Clearwater against the Houston Astros.

PHILLIES SECOND baseman Chase Utley played in his fifth rehab game for Class A Clearwater Tuesday night. What comes next? "I don't know," he said when asked where and when he was going to rehab next. "I really don't know. " Utley was 1-for-3 with a single and a walk as a designated hitter in an 8-2 loss to Dunedin, a Blue Jays affiliate. On Monday, he tested his chronically injured knees by playing second base for six innings in a win over Dunedin. When asked before Tuesday's game whether his knees felt OK, Utley was succinct.
