CLEARWATER, Fla. - Paul Clemens is currently the answer to a very obscure trivia question: Who was the first player to throw a pitch for a major league team during the 2015 exhibition season? But it's clear the 27-year-old pitcher has bigger plans this spring. The Phillies were baseball's first team to play a game this spring when they hosted the University of Tampa at Bright House Field yesterday afternoon. Clemens, a hard-throwing righthander, threw two perfect innings against the Spartans.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - A little more than 5 years ago, Andy Oliver was climbing onto the mound at Turner Field to make his major league debut against a Braves lineup that featured Chipper Jones, Jason Heyward and Brian McCann. He was 22 years old, barely a year removed from college, one of the top prospects in the Tigers' organization. Yesterday, Oliver was climbing onto the mound at Bright House Field to make his Phillies debut against a Division II lineup that featured a bunch of guys who won't get drafted next year.

40-man roster Pitchers 74, Elvis Araujo, LHP: Signed in November, the 6-foot-6 reliever from Venezuela hasn't pitched higher than double A, so he will likely begin the season in the minors. 48, Phillippe Aumont, RHP: Out of minor-league options, this spring is the last chance for the cornerstone of the worst trade of Ruben Amaro Jr.'s tenure as general manager. 70, Jesse Biddle, LHP: This spring marks the start of an important season for the Germantown Friends graduate and former first-round draft pick who struggled mightily in 2014 and is expected to begin this year back in double A. 38, Chad Billingsley, RHP: In the wake of Tommy John surgery in 2013 and another operation last year to repair his right flexor tendon, the recently signed veteran will probably enter spring training a bit behind the other starters.

CESAR JIMENEZ will join the Phillies when the team holds its first workout of spring training a week from today. The lefthanded pitcher cleared waivers and will be in camp as a non-roster invitee. Jimenez was designated for assignment last month when the Phillies had to create a 40-man roster spot for free-agent righthander Chad Billingsley. Jimenez, 30, had a 1.69 ERA in 16 appearances with the Phillies last season. He spent most of 2014 in the bullpen for Triple A Lehigh Valley, where he went 3-2 with a 1.45 ERA in 38 games (two starts)

In the hours after he dealt Marlon Byrd to the Cincinnati Reds on New Year's Eve, Ruben Amaro Jr. mentioned the likely possibility of Domonic Brown this season moving from left field back to right field. After speaking with Brown again, Amaro noted Friday that the 27-year-old is preparing as if that will be the case, though the general manager added he thinks Brown is "prepared to play anywhere. " "I think he's in a good frame of mind. I think it would be a good thing for him because I think he feels more comfortable in right field, so we'll see," Amaro said.

RON HEXTALL said yesterday he is not happy with the performance of the Flyers, a team he believes is strong enough to be a playoff performer "on paper. " As it stands now, the Flyers have a whopping 2.8 percent shot to make the Stanley Cup playoffs, using probabilities based on current games played by SportsClubStats.com. They would need a miraculous 27-11-5 run just for a 50-50 shot to get in. Right now, though, Hextall said he is not willing to overhaul his roster. The Flyers general manager is not interested in calling up young players from the AHL Phantoms to see what they can do. And he is also not interested in pinning any of the blame on coach Craig Berube.

ORLANDO - 76ers coach Brett Brown was asked Sunday when his team will fill out its roster. "I think in the next few days," he said. Brown gave the impression whoever that player is, he will be a welcome addition. The Sixers have 14 players, one fewer than the limit for NBA rosters. The coach said general manager Sam Hinkie will pick the addition to the roster. A team source said that former Sixer Malcolm Thomas is among the candidates. The power forward was waived on Nov. 10. At the time, he had to have knee surgery that sidelined him four weeks.

We are eight weeks into the NBA season. By now we should have a pretty good idea of which teams are lousy and which ones can hoop. What most of us don't think much about is that by this time in the season, teammates have developed a camaraderie similar to that shared with a sibling. Not only do they play and practice together, teammates often hang out during their time away from the court. So try to imagine what it must be like to practice every morning, lift weights, and watch film with a person you call your brother from another mother.

SAN DIEGO - With little outfield depth in the major leagues and upper levels of the minor leagues, the Phillies added a utility player with plus-offensive skills with their first of two selections in yesterday's Rule 5 Draft. The Phillies selected Odubel Herrera with the ninth pick in the draft, the annual event that wraps up baseball's winter meetings. Later in the draft, they took 27-year-old lefthanded reliever Andrew Oliver. "They were the two guys we wanted to get," said Mike Ondo, the Phillies' director of pro scouting.
