CLEARWATER, Fla. - When Jerad Eickhoff stepped to the plate in the second inning of his first Grapefruit League start, the sign to bunt may or may not have been flashed. Depends on whom you ask. Eickhoff, who fractured his right thumb in a February bunting incident that delayed his spring progress, swung with runners on the corners and one out. He chopped it back to the pitcher. "To get back in the box was kind of a nervous wreck," Eickhoff said Tuesday. "If I had to bunt, I had to bunt.

A shortage of for-sale inventory again threatens to derail the full recovery of the residential real estate market, both nationwide and in the Philadelphia region. The National Association of Realtors on Monday blamed February's lackluster sales of previously owned homes on "unshakably low supply levels and steadfast price growth" in parts of the United States. Low inventory of homes was a contributing factor in the 7.1 percent decline in national sales in February from January's levels after six positive months, the Realtors group said.

When the astronomical spring arrives at 12:30 a.m. Sunday, it might well end up doing a pratfall on a fresh cover of snow. Meteorologists at the National Weather Services have lowered their expectations for snowfall totals for Philadelphia as models have started to shift the storm to the east. Any snow is expected to begin as rain first, and accumulation on non-paved surfaces is forecast to top out at an inch.  With a nor'easter paralleling the coast, minor flooding is possible at the Shore, where winds could gust to 35 mph, the National Weather Service said.

So, shoulders are a thing. Not because of a quintessential bare-all moment like cleavage had at the 2000 Grammy Awards when Jennifer Lopez wore that Versace gown. And not because any shoulder got itself a Twitter account like Angelina Jolie's leg did in 2012. The thigh-high slit in the actress' black Atelier Versace earned her limb 38,000 Twitter followers that year. This spring's shoulder reveal was slow and somewhat surprising. One minute, we were all wrapping our arms in filmy, floral scarves and plush pashminas - in the summer months, too - with even our T-shirts raglan-sleeved.

The vernal equinox ushers in the first day of spring this Sunday. Not everyone welcomes the change, though. Many have anxiety over the prospect of shedding winter coats for more revealing warm-weather clothes and are now searching for ways to get fit fast. Maybe you're considering one of the usual crazy diets - the master cleanse! The grapefruit diet! The cabbage soup diet! But have you ever considered trying something more practical, like a booze break? I know, we've all been led to believe modest alcohol consumption is good for our health.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Steven Souza Jr. smacked the barrel of his bat against his thigh in frustration as he walked back to the Tampa Bay dugout. He had swung well ahead of Aaron Nola's change-up as the Phillies righthander left batters mystified Tuesday when his pitches rounded into form for the first time this spring. Manager Pete Mackanin said Nola looked like himself as he pitched the first 42/3 innings of a 5-2 win. Nola mixed his fastball with a looping curveball and an effective change-up, a pitch he spent the offseason trying to improve.

The identity of the Penn State quarterback never has been in question since the opening game of 2013 when Bill O'Brien sent Christian Hackenberg onto the field at MetLife Stadium against Syracuse. But after 38 consecutive starts over three seasons for O'Brien and James Franklin, Hackenberg has left Happy Valley for the NFL, and Franklin now will oversee the competition for the starting quarterback job beginning Friday when the Nittany Lions open spring practice. The two primary candidates are redshirt sophomore Trace McSorley, who came in after Hackenberg injured his right shoulder in the second quarter of the TaxSlayer Bowl, and redshirt freshman Tommy Stevens, who was listed as third-team QB last year and never played a snap.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - J.P. Crawford, Roman Quinn, and Nick Williams - perhaps the nucleus of the next contending Phillies team - were pulled separately from the team's clubhouse Monday morning and instructed to report to manager Pete Mackanin's office. Their time in major-league spring training was finished. The prospects were sent across the complex to minor-league camp, where games begin Tuesday. And the message delivered by general manager Matt Klentak and his top aides was bright. "It was great," Mackanin said.

Mike Weilbacher directs the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education It's a monster day for college hoop nuts, a day now given its own name: Selection Sunday. And - live on national TV - the brackets will be revealed, setting off a firestorm on Twitter, in chat rooms, at the water cooler. Monday morning, those brackets will be reprinted in hundreds of newspapers like this one, where they are dissected with more diligence than the parsing of Donald Trump's foreign policy.

The Atlanta Braves released former Phillie Kyle Kendrick on Saturday as they reduced their spring roster by 14 players. Kendrick allowed 14 hits and 10 runs, nine earned, in only 32/3 innings in his failed attempt to land one of the last two spots in the Braves rotation. The righthander also walked three batters. Seven of those runs, nine hits and two of the walks came in 12/3 innings against the Phillies on Frtiday. Following eight seasons with Philadelphia, Kendrick was 7-13 with Colorado in 2015.
