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.

Last spring training, B.J. Rosenberg was an under-theradar bullpen prospect who had an opportunity to establish himself as a legitimate part of the Phillies' future plans. Now, he's trying to make up for lost time. The Phillies have moved the righthander from the bullpen to the rotation at Double A Reading, hoping to give him more regular work at honing his game. They still project him as a reliever. But, much like Phillippe Aumont last season, they feel as though he will have more of an opportunity to develop with the regular work of a starter.
