CLEARWATER, Fla. - Carlos Ruiz called for a change-up Monday, and Joe Savery had to pause for a moment. It had been about 18 months since he threw one. That was before he became a hitter at single A, a pitcher in double A, and a major-league reliever by the end of 2011. Savery nodded and tossed the change-up. Detroit's Audy Ciriaco swung and missed at it for strike two. Now things were definitely right. "I'm feeling good out there," Savery said. He's just one of the lefthanded relief candidates in Phillies camp who can boast that.

Even though he has been very impressive so far pitching in the Arizona Fall League, the Phillies are in no hurry when it comes to Joe Savery, their first-round pick in June's draft. "At this point, he needs every opportunity to grow," said John Russell, who is managing Savery for the Peoria Saguaros here in the Arizona Fall League. "We will not push him, and not move him around because of personnel matters. " For now, the 21-year-old, who was drafted as a junior at Rice University, has settled into a routine as a starter every fifth day with the Saguaros.

A SPRING that has had more than its share of sour notes ended with a nice surprise. The Phillies announced after Tuesday night's game that lefthanded reliever Joe Savery had made the roster. Though he pitched in four games as a call-up last September, making the club out of the gate represents another step in Savery's career. The Phillies drafted Savery as a first baseman in the 2007 first round. "He's a good story," manager Charlie Manuel said. "He's come a long way. " Veterans Scott Podsednik, Hector Luna and Raul Valdes did not make the club.

Phillies first-round pick Joe Savery homered in the sixth inning, and Danny Lehmann doubled in the go-ahead run in Rice's six-run eighth inning as the team that set a College World Series record for offensive futility last year rallied to beat Louisville, 15-10, yesterday in the tournament opener. Louisville, which had scored 77 runs in eight NCAA tournament games, broke out to leads of 5-0 and 10-4 in its first CWS appearance before Rice pitchers Scott Lonergan and Bobby Bramhall combined to hold the Cardinals scoreless the last four innings.

ALLENTOWN - The second time he was hit by a pitch in the opener of an International League doubleheader Thursday night, Seth Bynum made the Lehigh Valley IronPigs pay. Bynum, who was plunked by Brian Bass in the first inning, was hit by a pitch from Justin De Fratus in the sixth. Bynum stole second and scored the eventual winning run on a ground ball in a 3-2 victory for the Syracuse Chiefs. Lehigh Valley scored three runs in the second inning of the nightcap to salvage a split with a 5-2 decision.

The middle of Clearwater's batting order became the back end of its bullpen Monday night during the Threshers' 23-inning game at Jupiter. Clearwater, the Phillies' single-A affiliate in the Florida State League, lost the game, 2-1, when Jupiter, a Florida Marlins affiliate, scored in the bottom of the 23d on an RBI single from Jose Duarte that dropped just inside the right-field foul line. The Threshers' designated hitter, Joe Savery, and cleanup hitter, Darrin Ruf, combined for four shutout innings from the 19th through 22d innings.

After a 4-3 victory Tuesday that gave the Phillies their first three-game winning streak of 2012, Vance Worley dampened the mood. He said he's been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday because of elbow soreness. Kyle Kendrick will start for Worley in the series opener against Chicago. Kendrick has pitched only one inning in the previous 11 days and could be severely limited in how deep he could throw. He made three starts for Cliff Lee while the lefthander was disabled, and the Phillies lost all three.

Joe Savery understands the deal. He was called up by the Phillies from triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday and the lefthanded reliever realizes that it could be a short stay. The Phillies needed to fill a spot after placing John Lannan on the disabled list Thursday with a strained quadriceps tendon in his left knee. The injury is expected to keep the No. 5 starter out from six to eight weeks. Lannan's place in the rotation will come up Monday against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Phillies will be calling up a starter for that game and possibly beyond.

WASHINGTON - The gray No. 9 jersey hung in the locker closest to the door in the visitors clubhouse at Nationals Park. It was waiting for Domonic Brown, the Phillies' erstwhile top prospect, who emerged as one of Tuesday's big winners. Brown's plane from Syracuse, N.Y., was delayed, and it cost him a spot in the starting lineup Tuesday. He arrived around first pitch and pinch-hit in the eighth inning, getting a single. Starting Wednesday, he will play and he will play often. "He's going to get a chance," manager Charlie Manuel said.

THE PHILLIES did not announce Raul Valdes as Wednesday's starting pitcher until after Tuesday's game because of a pitching staff in flux. So a bullpen that can rarely provide three clean innings must chew up all nine Wednesday. The team apparently has no better option.   "That's the way we decided," pitching coach Rich Dubee said. "That's what we felt comfortable with. " They waited to name Valdes in case he was needed Tuesday, but Vance Worley pitched into the seventh inning and it was unnecessary.

MINNEAPOLIS - B.J. Rosenberg was one of the first Phillies in the dugout at Target Field before Wednesday's game. As the Twins took batting practice, the rookie reliever saw Rich Dubee leaning against the railing and shuffled closer to his pitching coach for a chat. The Phillies have already used 18 pitchers in 2012, and options are limited. They have called up whom they can, will not have reinforcements for some time, and cannot swing a trade for a meaningful addition. So learning on the fly is the only reality, and any nugget gleaned from a bad outing or chat with Dubee could help.

BALTIMORE - You put the ball in Cliff Lee's $120 million hand so it doesn't come down to Ty Wigginton's shaky glove. You pay Jonathan Papelbon $50 million, then order him to enjoy the view of another walk-off loss from out in the bullpen. You play Wigginton at third, Michael Martinez at second, and Hector Luna at first, then watch your defense give away outs. You lose in the 10th inning when Baltimore's .255-hitting cleanup hitter doubles home a run off Joe Savery, and you have to ponder whether that's worse than the .237-hitting 8-hole hitter blasting a three-run bomb off Lee in the fourth.

BALTIMORE - Charlie Manuel was dressed in full uniform hours before Sunday's game and long before any other Phillie. He emerged from the visiting manager's office at Camden Yards, pulled his red cap onto his gray head, and sauntered through an upbeat clubhouse. When a 5-4 loss in 10 innings to the Baltimore Orioles was complete, Manuel plopped into his chair and slipped on shower sandals. The first word out of his mouth was "Again. " Again, the Phillies scored but stranded so many more chances.

BALTIMORE — In the corner of an emptying clubhouse, Jonathan Papelbon sat in a metal folding chair and hastily stuffed his belongings into a red duffel bag. That it was his most significant workload of the afternoon should not come as a surprise. True, the Phillies' bullpen inherited a tie game in the seventh inning. True, that bullpen was operating with one of its setup men unavailable and the other on a short leash. True, that bullpen already had recorded nine outs and was facing the heart of the Orioles' order in the bottom of the 10th.
