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.

The middle of Clearwater's batting order became the back end of its bullpen Monday night during the Threshers' 23-inning game at Jupiter.

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.
