There was a break between innings during a recent Phillies loss, and David Montgomery looked toward second base from the owner's suite at Citizens Bank Park. That is Chase Utley's spot; it was his when this sparkling ballpark opened, and when the Phillies signed Utley to a two-year contract last summer with three option years, Montgomery imagined it was Utley's until he relinquished it. Utley and shortstop Jimmy Rollins have started 1,129 games together, the most of all active double-play combinations.

IN A WEEK that featured one player contracting a MRSA infections (Freddy Galvis), another suffering a serious rib-cage injury (Darin Ruf) and another disappearing from camp altogether (Kevin Frandsen), it was easy for Justin De Fratus to fall below the radar as the Phillies' time in Clearwater, Fla. began to draw to a close in March. But De Fratus was completely OK with that. Not with catching the flu bug for 9 days and being sidelined from throwing for 6 days, of course. But with the idea of not making headlines for reasons neither good nor bad. Middle relievers, much like placekickers in football, know they're going well if they can do their job and go largely unnoticed.

THE COMPOSITION of the Phillies bench took a wild turn in the last week of spring training, when Darin Ruf suffered a severe rib-cage injury, Freddy Galvis contracted a MRSA infection and Kevin Frandsen elected for free agency after being removed from the 40-man roster. It's continued to be an ever-changing piece of the roster, from Jayson Nix coming and going, Reid Brignac arriving, Galvis being activated, sent down and then injured, Hernandez coming and going and Ruf entering the picture this week.

BEFORE LAST night's game, the Angels trotted out Mike Trout and Raul Ibanez to talk about their connection to the city of Philadelphia. Their connection to the product that the Phillies are putting on the field is a bit more tenuous, but it is worth noting. In 2009, the Angels selected Trout with a pick they received from the Yankees as compensation for New York's signing of Mark Teixeira. Two picks later, the Mariners drafted infielder Nick Franklin with the first-round pick that the Phillies gave them as compensation for signing Ibanez.

The Phillies removed Jayson Nix from the team Monday, the second bench subtraction in less than a week. The timing of the roster shuffle was interesting, since the Phillies lost another infield option Sunday when Freddy Galvis suffered a broken left clavicle during a collision with a teammate in pursuit of a foul ball. Nix was outrighted to triple-A Lehigh Valley. He can elect free agency or accept his minor-league assignment. The team's 40-man roster is at 39. His replacement will be announced Tuesday.

THE PHILLIES were off yesterday and the ballpark was empty. Yet, there was plenty of action in the organization. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. joined manager Ryne Sandberg and current and former players at Morton's Steakhouse in Center City for the Richie Ashburn-Harry Kalas Foundation Dinner. The foundation runs free camps and clinics throughout the summer to help get kids in the Philadelphia area involved in baseball. Earlier yesterday, the team announced that Freddy Galvis will miss 6 to 8 weeks after fracturing his left clavicle in a collision with a teammate while playing for Triple A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

NEW YORK - Cole Hamels exuded caution during spring training. He twice postponed his throwing program when biceps tendinitis and a tired arm served as red flags. The Phillies and Hamels were deliberate in their progressions. He threw a career-high 133 pitches in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the New York Mets, more than any pitcher in the majors since Tim Lincecum emptied 148 pitches July 13, 2013, for a no-hitter. It was Hamels' fourth start of 2014. He did not see any risk in the heavy workload.

NEW YORK - Kenny Giles possesses the best arm in the Phillies organization, and the minor-league flamethrower is now one step closer to the majors. The 23-year-old righthander was promoted Friday to triple-A Lehigh Valley. Ryne Sandberg said the Phillies did not consider jumping Giles from double-A Reading to the majors. The Phillies manager is eager to see how Giles, who throws in the high 90s, handles better competition. "They'll make him throw more strikes," Sandberg said.

TORONTO - The losingest franchise in professional sports played its 20,000th game Thursday night, and the agony has assumed countless forms during 132 years of Phillies baseball. Marlon Byrd smashed a 400-foot double to center in the fifth inning. Ryan Howard, the $125 million first baseman, could not score from first with two outs. Domonic Brown whiffed at three knuckleballs. Add it to the list. These Phillies scuffle with higher stakes than ever; failure despite a franchise-record $189 million payroll will endanger players' careers and executives' jobs.

THE LESSON to Phillies fans from last night: Pray. Or, if you are a nihilist, sit back and enjoy the ride. We can argue all we want about the viability of this Phillies team as it has been constructed during the first 5 weeks of play. The biggest question is whether that unit can stay healthy. Because last night, in a 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays, its alarming lack of depth was on clear display. The lineup featured three fill-ins, not one of whom was hitting close to .200. They were John Mayberry Jr., Freddy Galvis and Jayson Nix, and they entered the night hitting a combined 11-for-88 with three extra-base hits, 31 strikeouts and seven walks.
