The Phillies will start next season where they started 2016 and they will end with a glut of home games at Citizens Bank Park. Major League Baseball released its 2017 schedule on Wednesday, a schedule that includes a second straight opening day - April 3, 2017 - in Cincinnati and 16 of the Phillies' final 19 games at home. The most brutal stretch of the schedule is in early August, when the Phillies will play 13 games in Western or Mountain time zones over a 20-day span. National League East teams are paired with American League West teams next season in interleague play, which makes for longer travel.

DEAR ABBY: I am a stay-at-home mom who doesn't work. My husband wants me at home, and I'm OK with that, but the problem is, he is now working two jobs and I never see him. When he gets home, he's so exhausted he can't keep his eyes open. He sleeps only four hours a night. I'm afraid he will crash and burn from overwork and lack of sleep. I also miss him and want to be with him. With no time together, I feel like I'm losing him. How can I make this work? I don't want to put pressure on him or make him feel bad, but I need him. I told him I'd get a part-time job, but he said he works for the both of us and that was the end of that conversation.

With leased railcars finally on hand, SEPTA announced a new schedule Sunday night to improve service that has been rocky since a third of its rail fleet was pulled from service more than a week ago. The new schedule - effective for Monday's commute - adds trains and stations, with tweaked stops and arrival times throughout SEPTA's 13 Regional Rail lines - promising some relief for commuters dealing with crowded cars and bypassed stops. The full schedule, including a list of specific changes, can be seen on PDFs at www.septa.org/service/contingency.html . The changes likely to benefit riders most, said Matthew Mitchell, vice president of the Delaware Valley Association of Rail Passengers, are three additional trains from both Glenside and Bryn Mawr and two added trains on the Manayunk/Norristown Line.

The 76ers' predraft workout process is about to get (even more) interesting. The team is scheduled to work out Brandon Ingram on Monday after weeks of looking at mostly projected late-second-round picks and free agents. The former Duke swingman will most likely be the only draft prospect at the workout. That's not uncommon for potential top picks. The Sixers will decide between Ingram and Ben Simmons for the first overall pick in the June 23 NBA draft. However, they have yet to secure a workout with Simmons.

The Phillies entered Monday's game with a collection of corner outfielders who batted .188 with a .506 OPS, and sometimes it is easy to forget this was not by design. So there was Aaron Altherr, in the clubhouse Monday afternoon for a brief moment with his teammates, as a reminder of what should have been. Altherr, who tore the tendon sheath in his left wrist during spring training, was in Philadelphia for a few hours to see a doctor. The 25-year-old outfielder heard what he wanted: He can begin swinging a bat in two weeks.
