FREDDY GALVIS should have the opportunity to return to his natural position and get reps at shortstop this spring. The longest-tenured Phillie will be leaving camp. For the second time in the last 5 years Jimmy Rollins will represent the Phillies as Team USA's shortstop at this spring's World Baseball Classic. Rollins is the lone Phillies player on the American roster. Six other players in the Phillies organization will play for four other countries. Reliever Phillippe Aumont, outfielder Tyson Gillies and infielder Pete Orr were on Team Canada's roster when the lists were distributed Thursday afternoon.

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.

PAWTUCKET, R.I. - Cody Overbeck hit his first homer of the season at the triple-A level, and four pitchers combined for a four-hit shutout as the Lehigh Valley IronPigs blanked the Pawtucket Red Sox, 2-0, Sunday in the International League. Overbeck had been promoted from double-A Reading after hitting 18 homers there this season. New Britain 5, Reading 3   READING - Chris Parmelee homered in a three-run first, and the Rock Cats added runs in the seventh and eighth innings to defeat the R-Phils in an Eastern League game.

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.

NASHVILLE - Ben Revere was not the only centerfielder the Phillies added to their roster before leaving the winter meetings Thursday. They also selected speedy Ender Inciarte off the triple-A roster of the Arizona Diamondbacks in the annual Rule 5 draft. The 22-year-old Venezuelan had a career .283 average and .347 on-base percentage and 111 stolen bases in five minor-league seasons with Arizona. The lefthanded-hitting Inciarte hit a combined .307 with 28 doubles, 10 triples, two home runs, and 46 stolen bases at low-single-A South Bend and high-single-A Visalia.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Delwyn Young went 3 for 5 with a pair of doubles, a run scored, and an RBI to help five Lehigh Valley pitchers defeat the Syracuse Chiefs, 5-2, in the International League on Sunday. Reading 8, Trenton 5 READING - Freddy Galvis' two-run double keyed a five-run fourth as the Phillies beat the Thunder in the Eastern League. Galvis had a pair of doubles and the two RBIs, as did Carlos Rivero, who was 4-4. Trenton scored three runs in the first - including two on back-to-back hit batsmen with the bases loaded by Reading starter Joe Esposito.

WASHINGTON - Freddy Galvis inspected the bat rack Friday in the visitors' dugout at Nationals Park when Phillies hitting coach Steve Henderson greeted him. "You in left field again?" Henderson asked the shortstop. Galvis smiled. "That's because you keep hitting," Henderson said. "If you don't hit, you're stuck sitting with me. " The two laughed. These September games are for Galvis and countryman Cesar Hernandez, and an intriguing competition between the two friends could brew next spring.

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.

CHICAGO - Carlos Ruiz logged nine plate appearances in the last two games and reached base six times, a number that will stick in the back of Ryne Sandberg's mind. Ruiz's two-game stay as the Phillies' No. 2 hitter will end Saturday when Jimmy Rollins returns. But the catcher made an impression at the top of the lineup. "Whatever spot he's in, I think he takes on that role," Sandberg said. "Maybe the fact he's batting second, it is a job to get on base and set the table for the other guys.
