RUBEN AMARO Jr. was pretty much as blindsided as everyone else in baseball. It wasn't until Sunday night that Antonio Bastardo reached out to the Phillies general manager. "He said there might be something that goes on here," Amaro said. "That was the only real heads-up I had. " The next day, Bastardo was among the 12 major league players who agreed to begin serving 50-game suspensions for involvement with Biogenesis, an anti-aging clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.

MILWAUKEE - About the only thing that will change Friday for Freddy Galvis is he will start earning a salary again. But even though his 50-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs ends, Galvis remains sidelined. A fractured back will probably keep the infielder from playing for the Phillies again in 2012. Galvis has been instructed not to participate in "game situations" until at least Sept. 3, assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said. That marks 12 weeks since the injury was suffered.

NEW YORK - In the grand scheme of things, a backup catcher is not crucial to a team's success. The Phillies possessed two backup catchers during the season's first month, and one had to go Sunday when Carlos Ruiz returned from his suspension. Humberto Quintero's locker was cleared early in the morning. The Phillies chose Erik Kratz as their backup and designated Quintero for assignment. They hope to retain Quintero in the organization, but that requires his passing through waivers unclaimed.

Depending on moves the Phillies could make before the July 31 trade deadline, a few players waiting in the wings at triple-A Lehigh Valley could be called on to fill spots on the big-league roster. IronPigs third baseman Cody Asche and second baseman Cesar Hernandez - both 23-year-olds and triple-A all-stars this season - are swinging hot enough bats to make a case for a trip to Philadelphia. But Lehigh Valley manager Dave Brundage isn't convinced the prospects should be leaving Allentown any time soon.

The Phillies will add six minor-league players as September call-ups, but some notable prospects will be left waiting by the phone. Catcher Cameron Rupp, a former third-round pick who ascended to the top of the organization's catching ladder with a solid season, was added to the roster. Lefty Mauricio Robles, a hard thrower with shaky command, earned a promotion. They are joined by infielder Freddy Galvis and pitchers Tyler Cloyd, Luis Garcia and Joe Savery. Enigmatic reliever Phillippe Aumont apparently will be sent home.
