DUNEDIN, Fla. - Charlie Manuel wants Phillippe Aumont in his bullpen. At least, that's what it sounded like on Monday afternoon after the hulking righthander threw a nine-pitch scoreless inning against the Blue Jays in one of his last Grapefruit League outings of the spring. Manuel talked about the potential of pairing the hard-throwing, 24-year-old with lefthander Antonio Bastardo in the seventh inning, while also pointing out that it might take some time for some of the players on the lower end of the bullpen totem pole to get into a regular-season groove.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Phillies reliever Phillippe Aumont ran in from the bullpen in the ninth inning Saturday afternoon in Phoenix and found himself right smack in the middle of an international incident. "It was pretty intense," Aumont said Tuesday after rejoining the Phillies following his three-game hiatus with Canada in the World Baseball Classic. "It was the first time I've ever been in an actual brawl where people were going to town on it. " The melee started after Mexico's Arnold Leon disregarded an umpire's warning following two brushback pitches and drilled Canada's Rene Tosoni.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The World Baseball Classic was Phillippe Aumont's validation in 2009. The hulking Canadian faced six American all-stars, including Jimmy Rollins, in succession and survived a scoreless inning. "It was my first big step," Aumont said. On March 3, Aumont will leave Phillies camp, where he is competing for a bullpen job, and fly to Arizona. He will pitch for Canada again, this time under different circumstances. It's time for Aumont to take the next step. "If I can go there, throw strikes, and have some good outings," Aumont said, "I think it can only put me in a good position when I come back.

CINCINNATI - In the first 2 weeks of the season, one of the problem spots on the Phillies' roster has been locating a capable and consistent arm to take the ball from the starting pitcher and hand it to a back-end reliever with the scoreboard unscathed. Phillippe Aumont wants to be that guy. In the rookie reliever's first four appearances of 2013, he has pitched in the eighth inning or later. Although three of those games were losses, including Saturday in Miami when he was charged with the loss, Aumont has had encouraging results.

A version of this originally appeared on David Murphy's blog, High Cheese: THE HITS keep on coming for Tyson Gillies, the centerfield prospect acquired as part of the ill-fated Cliff Lee trade of December 2009. Gillies has been suspended from Double A Reading for what the club says is a violation of team rules. No further information was available. Gillies has struggled to stay on the field since the Phillies acquired him from the Mariners, along with righthanders Phillippe Aumont and J.C. Ramirez, in exchange for Lee. He appeared in only 28 games in his first season in the organization, which was marked by hamstring injuries and an arrest on charges of cocaine possession (the charges were later dropped)
