Lou Marson is about as disciplined as a quarterback-turned-baseball-player can be. The catcher leads the Eastern League with a .447 on-base percentage. The next closest, entering last night's games, trailed by 18 points. Marson can't explain it. "I don't know," he said. "I'm just trying to have good at-bats and see the ball. "And have fun. " Marson, who turned 22 on June 26, is having plenty of fun in what is becoming a breakout season. Entering last night, he led the league in walks, with 60. He was tied for fourth with a .323 batting average.

In the third inning of Saturday's Grapefruit League game, Phillies catcher Lou Marson called for a fastball high and inside. Jamie Moyer thought it was a risky choice for the situation but decided to throw it anyway. Sure enough, Moyer left the pitch over the plate, and Scott Sizemore, batting ninth for the Detroit Tigers, homered. Moyer had been correct: He shouldn't have given the ninth man in the order a hittable pitch. "If it had been a regular-season game, I would have shaken Marson off," Moyer said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Lou Marson replayed the brutal crash again and again Tuesday morning for his Phillies teammates to evaluate. Tampa Bay's Desmond Jennings galloped toward Marson, then a Cleveland Indians catcher. Marson snared the throw from third base a second before Jennings planted his left forearm into Marson's mask. "Marson is knocked for a loop, but he hangs on!" the broadcaster yelled. "Oh man. You want to talk about a block of concrete at home plate!" Marson polled the group for a verdict.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Matt Stairs' majestic, go-ahead home run flirted with the palm trees beyond the ballpark at Chavez Ravine before finding a resting place deep in the upper rightfield bleachers at Dodger Stadium. Three batters earlier, Lou Marson winced as another home run - of the line-drive variety - nearly grazed his helmet. Before Stairs' famous shot off Jonathan Broxton, Shane Victorino tied Game 4 of the 2008 National League Championship Series with his own, two-run home run off Cory Wade.

Lou Marson, a former Phillies fourth-round pick who was once traded for Cliff Lee, will return to the organization in 2014 on a minor-league contract, providing catching depth. Marson, 27, was among four players invited to spring training Wednesday by the Phillies. The others are outfielders Tony Gwynn Jr. and Dave Sappelt and righthander Sean O'Sullivan. The Phillies traded Marson to Cleveland as part of a four-player package to acquire Lee in 2009. He languished while with the Indians, hitting just .217 with a .602 OPS in five seasons as a reserve.

THE PHILLIES made the 1-year, $4.5 million contract with righthander Roberto Hernandez official yesterday. Hernandez will join a starting rotation with Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee and Kyle Kendrick. In adding Hernandez to the 40-man roster, the Phillies had to subtract a player tabbed as the organization's top hitting prospect only 2 years ago. Catcher Sebastian Valle was designated for assignment to make room for Hernandez. Valle was rated the third-best prospect in the Phillies system by Baseball America in November 2011.

CLIFF LEE will pitch in Cleveland for the first time as an opponent tomorrow, facing the team he won his one and only Cy Young award with, in 2008. Meanwhile, the four players the Phillies surrendered to acquire him midway through the 2009 season - the "big price" - will not be participating in the game, or any other major league game this week. Carlos Carrasco, currently pitching in Triple A and facing a five-game suspension for a beaning incident when and if he returns to the majors, has a 10-16 career record with a 5.16 earned run average.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - The youngest player in the room is a catcher who did not start catching until his senior year of high school. Tommy Joseph does not look, nor play, the part in the Phillies clubhouse. One morning, he caught a bullpen session with Roy Halladay, who was drafted when Joseph was 4. Joseph was born in 1991. He is 21 years old. "Is he really?" fellow catcher Erik Kratz said. "You wouldn't know it," infielder Kevin Frandsen said. "A lot of guys are like, 'Man, he's 21?

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Turns out, everybody is rooting for Tuffy Gosewisch. Colin Curtis, a non-roster invitee in Yankees camp? Team Tuffy. Roy Halladay, a two-time Cy Young winner? Team Tuffy. And if you believe that a catcher's value cannot be measured by batting lines and stolen base percentages, then you will end up on Team Tuffy, too. "Honestly, I would take him any day of the week," Halladay said. "I really would. " You might know the name. Born James Benjamin Gosewisch, his parents decided on a more appropriate moniker during a toddler-hood in which he rained destruction upon everything he touched.

JEFF FRANCIS pitched eight sharp innings, Melky Cabrera hit a grand slam and the visiting Kansas City Royals pounded the Cleveland Indians, 12-0, last night in a game that turned testy in the fourth inning. Billy Butler went deep twice and Alex Gordon also connected for the Royals, who have won seven of 10. Butler hit a two-run shot in the first and a solo drive in the eighth, giving him five long balls in a four-game homer streak. Butler came to the plate right after Cabrera's grand slam in the fourth, and Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco promptly threw one at his head on the first pitch.
