CLEARWATER, Fla. - During the game, Ryne Sandberg inserted Cesar Hernandez at third base. After the game, the manager summoned Kevin Frandsen to his office. The result was the latest wrinkle in the Phillies' quest to identify the members of their bench for the upcoming season. Frandsen, a member of the team's active roster since July 2012, was outrighted off the 40-man roster yesterday, a sign that the Phillies are leaning toward other options for the two backup infielders they usually carry.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Eleven days ago, before starting at shortstop in a game in Disney World, where the Atlanta Braves call spring training home, Freddy Galvis rolled up his left pant leg and showed off a nasty cut. It wasn't an uncommon injury for a baseball player, as they slide hard into the ground routinely when trying to get to a base on offense or field a hard-to-reach grounder on defense. Galvis got this particular wound after sliding into third base one day. It was the reason he had briefly ditched his normal high-sock look.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. confirmed Friday that Phillies infielder Freddy Galvis has contracted MRSA. "Right now we are more concerned about his overall health than anything else," Amaro said. "He will be in the hospital for a little bit, but we are not sure how long. " According to the Mayo Clinic, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus auerus (MRSA) infection is caused by a strain of staph bacteria that has become resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - To say that things came into clearer focus yesterday would probably be inaccurate. The fringes of the Phillies' Opening Day roster are still as muddled as a Don Draper Old Fashioned. Nevertheless, as of yesterday, we hold these truths to be self-evident: 1) Tony Gwynn should have a place on the team. 2) David Buchanan is a real contender for the Opening Day roster. 3) The fates of subjects No. 1 and No. 2 could be intertwined. First, Gwynn: His line-drive double off Blue Jays righty Esmil Rogers yesterday was his fourth extra-base hit of the spring, and he would have swiped his third base had Chase Utley not been ruled to have been hit by a pitch.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - So Ryne Sandberg, in his first spring training as the Phillies' manager, has homed in on Jimmy Rollins as his first target to send a message. Sandberg held Rollins out of the starting lineup Thursday for the Phillies' 6-2 victory over the Yankees, the third consecutive game he had the shortstop watching from the dugout. The manager spent 10 minutes after the game denying that there was anything punitive about his benching Rollins, that he wanted to give a player with just 15 at-bats this spring "a break," but it sure was hard to interpret it as anything else.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - As of yesterday morning, when the lineup was posted in the clubhouse, Jimmy Rollins wasn't in for today's game in Clearwater against the New York Yankees. It would be the third straight day Rollins is out of the starting lineup. Rollins said he was healthy when he arrived to Bright House Field yesterday. He hit in the indoor cages and ran along the outfield track afterward. "No one has told me [anything about his health]," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said later in the morning.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Jimmy Rollins' 3-day hiatus from the starting lineup will come to an end this afternoon in Bradenton, Fla., when he is scheduled to bat second and play shortstop against the Pittsburgh Pirates. But yesterday, when his odd absence from the lineup was entering a third day, Rollins thought Ryne Sandberg was angry with him. And the manager juggled an excuse for resting the former MVP while also admitting there was an issue at hand, too. "Obviously he's upset about something," Rollins said shortly after arriving at the ballpark yesterday.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Standing on the dugout steps, in front of a trio of blue coolers, Bob McClure spoke, Freddy Galvis translated, and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez listened. The end came mercifully, a David Lough popout that lingered long enough over the field of play for Cody Asche to glove it in foul territory. This was was the 31st pitch of what was almost certainly Gonzalez' last inning as a candidate for the Phillies' rotation. The previous 30 left little doubt about the the work the organization's developmental staff will need to perform to get the 26-year-old righthander to a point at which he can retire major league hitters.

Clearwater, Fla. -- The game was still in progress, but Cody Asche was standing in the Phillies clubhouse in street clothes, his right hand wrapped in a bandage, his left hand clutching an ice pack. "Scared," the third baseman said of his reaction when a fastball from the erratic left arm of Yao-Hsun Yang slammed into his right hand with a loud thwack in the fifth inning of yesterday's Grapefruit League loss to the Pirates. His manager felt the same way. "He got hit pretty good," Ryne Sandberg said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Let's be honest with ourselves. After 12 days of bullpen sessions, batting practices and fielding drills, we possess very little knowledge with regard to this Phillies team that we did not bring with us to Florida. That might suggest a bit of disingenuity on the part of a media corps that has suckered you into reading its dispatches over the past couple of weeks, but we've done our best to cull what little substance exists in these early days of camp. We've verified the existence of Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, in the process witnessing the reason for the hesitation that has been present in the front office's public assessments of the Cuban righthander throughout most of the winter.
