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.

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.

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.

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)

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The blue tables on either end of the Phillies clubhouse at Bright House Field are typically used by players for breakfast and lunch. For Paul Clemens, it is where he gleans advice from veteran pitchers such as Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon. "I just sit next to them and listen," said Clemens, who will start Sunday's exhibition against visiting University of Tampa. "I try to sit around and soak up as much as I can. " Clemens said the Phillies veterans are guiding him through the mental aspects of the game.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - While Freddy Galvis enjoys his first spring as a starter and Darin Ruf tries to take advantage of a chance for more playing time, and pitchers such as Phillippe Aumont and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez attempt to get something out of their gifted-yet-flawed arms, the Phillies veterans continue to be somewhat out of place in Camp Clearwater. They all said the right things upon checking into Bright House Field in the last 3 weeks - except for lefthander Cole Hamels, in an interview published just before camp - but they undoubtedly would rather play for a team with serious World Series aspirations than for an organization that committed to a rebuild this offseason.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Phillies catcher John Hester ambled to the mound Sunday, hoping to give reliever Phillippe Aumont a bit of relief in the sixth inning of a 6-2 loss to the University of Tampa. Runners stood on first and second with two outs. The righthanded Aumont had already yielded a run. More damage appeared imminent. "Let's get this next batter out," Hester told him. Aumont did just that, forcing a fly ball to escape the inning. Aumont's first appearance of spring training - the most vital camp of his career - was complete.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Another positive sign in Cliff Lee's path back from last year's season-ending elbow strain came Friday, when Phillies pitching coach Bob McClure read off his schedule for the first week of spring training games. Lee, who on Saturday will pitch his second live batting practice, is slated to start the Grapefruit League game Thursday against the Houston Astros in Kissimmee. That puts the 36-year-old lefthander on schedule with the rest of the team's starters. "He's thrown well," McClure said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Ethan Martin arrived to the Phillies organization on the day Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence departed. A year and 2 days later, the former first-round pick made his big-league debut and stuck on the roster for the remainder of the season. Martin, the key piece that came back from the Dodgers in exchange for Victorino, impressed late in the summer of 2013 with a fastball that averaged 95 mph in his first four starts. But Martin's progress as a rising young big-leaguer was halted last spring, when he faced only four hitters in his only Grapefruit League game.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Three weeks after Pat Gillick took the reins of Phillies baseball operations on a permanent basis, the team announced that Michael Stiles will lead its business side. Stiles, the senior vice president for administration and operations since 2007, was promoted to executive vice president and chief operating officer, the Phillies said Tuesday. He joined the organization in 2001, helping to oversee the team's move to Citizens Bank Park, after nearly three decades in high-profile public-service positions.

SAN DIEGO - Closer isn't the most relevant position on a last-place team. After all, his job requires that his team have a lead. But the odds say that the Phillies will have one of those at some point in the next week, and, at that point, Ryne Sandberg might treat the fan base to a glimpse at the future. While the manager has not detailed his plans for filling the void during the rest of Jonathan Papelbon's seven-game suspension for his crotch-grab on Sunday (he is eligible to return Tuesday in Miami)

NEW YORK - The Phillies played baseball Wednesday for 3 hours, 28 minutes to produce an 11-2 loss to the Mets, a peek at what the final 54 games offer if this roster remains intact. That is an outcome that gains momentum by the hour; Thursday's 4 p.m. trade deadline could pass without a Phillies trade. So, yes, that means Kyle Kendrick will still pitch every five days. He allowed four runs - three of which scored on one Daniel Murphy blast - in six innings. Ryan Howard, who snapped an 0-for-12 skid with a run-scoring double, will endure as the cleanup hitter and first baseman.

ATLANTA - The last time the Phillies were pressured into trading Cliff Lee, they emerged with Phillippe Aumont, Tyson Gillies, and J.C. Ramirez. There is no such mandate to jettison Lee at this moment, not when the lefthander languished for two months with a strained left elbow. But that disturbance in Lee's elbow creates an unsettling dynamic. The Phillies need not hasten a Lee trade because he would hold value this winter; then again, what if Lee returns to the rotation and his flexor tendon or ulnar collateral ligament bursts?

OVER THE next 2 weeks, you will hear a lot of numbers that attempt to quantify the quality of prospects the Phillies receive in exchange for the veterans they inevitably will trade away. As you attempt to digest all of that information, keep this number in mind: one. That's the number of players currently playing major league baseball at a league-average level who were considered to be among the top 15 prospects in the Mariners' organization at the time of the Phillies' infamous trade of Cliff Lee. Of all the players Ruben Amaro Jr. and Co. did not acquire in exchange for their ace, only Michael Saunders would be helping them in their attempt to avoid an ugly transition to the future.
