FT. MYERS, Fla. - The bullpen door swung open, allowing Kevin Slowey to jog to the mound from right field and start the bottom of the eighth inning of a 7-6 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. The relief pitcher stopped his trot at the infield dirt. Slowey walked the rest of the way. It was his fifth appearance of spring, four of which have been scoreless. His role with the Phillies remains undefined. Manager Ryne Sandberg said Slowey is versatile. He has been both a starter and a reliever in his seven major-league seasons.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Chase Utley played four innings at second base on Saturday, marking the first time this spring that he has played in the field. Utley did not see a lot of action, but he said it went well. Utley will not travel with the team Sunday to play Boston in Fort Myers. Utley's schedule for the rest of the spring is to be determined. "I would imagine that I progress with more innings," Utley said. "I don't necessarily see playing every day from here on out. I'll just take baby steps.

EACH DAY brings news of startling gains in artificial intelligence, which in turn inspires movies about these advances. All of which raises the fervent hope that soon, very soon, movie previews will write themselves. This is nearly true already, since virtually every movie season features an Avenger, a Kevin Hart film and more A.I. sci-fi. That's certainly true of spring 2015. Here are the highlights of releases scheduled between now and Memorial Day: GET HARD , March 27. Crooked financier Will Ferrell gets sentenced to jail and hires Kevin Hart to toughen him up, unaware that his new personal prison trainer actually knows nothing about life behind bars.

SPRING'S STAGE schedule is a typical cup-runneth-over affair, mixing the classic and the brand new (and new twists on standards), comedies and dramas, musicals and scripts without scores. On the nonmusical front, we're excited about "To the Moon," a new piece from local comedy doyenne Jen Childs (and starring her gifted hubby, Scott Greer) that riffs on Jackie Gleason's 1950s sitcom "The Honeymooners. " Dramatically speaking, South Philly's Theatre Exile takes on Edward Albee's intense "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf," and Wilma Theater puts its audacious spin on Shakespeare's "Hamlet.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The first line on the lineup card posted in the Phillies clubhouse on Saturday morning read, "Revere 7. " Ben Revere, the team's everyday centerfielder the last two years, was being moved to left field for the first time in three seasons. The 26-year-old stayed back from the team's road trip on Friday to practice catching fly balls in the new position. He learned earlier in the morning he would play left and Odubel Herrera would play center Saturday against Toronto.

I had traveled to Dominica for the jungle, for the verdant cloak of bromeliads and fern trees that overlays this volcanic island in the Eastern Caribbean. But life just outside the forest, I would quickly discover, was as intriguing as inside. As we drove, my focus kept shifting from the incredible flora to the strips of asphalt spilling down the coast, twisting at improbable angles on descents. Locals walked the streets carrying umbrellas in one hand (to fight the inexorable rains)

The best of this spring's fashions feature clean lines and simple shapes. Silhouettes mold to contours, but still move softly with the body. More sensuality lies in the details. Slits splice the sides of below-the-knee pencil skirts. Deep V's are carved into pantsuit bodices. Fringe on midriff-baring blouses tickles the abs that peek through the tassels. Even maxi dresses, a vestiary favorite of the boho chic, are cut to skim curves, rather than dwarf them. "Strong and powerful are the themes of spring 2015," said Sharla Floyd, buyer and curator for Center City women's boutique Atelier Rittenhouse.

Pete McClure's neighbor, perhaps with understandable impatience, uttered those three magical words to him this week: "Spring is here. " Never mind that his West Deptford neighbor was a bit off on the timing. McClure, who had a profound personal experience with what some would argue was the true "storm of the century," said Thursday that he was quick to counterpoint. "I said, 'No, no, no!' " The atmosphere is siding with McClure. Meteorologists are confident that by the time the astronomical spring arrives at 6:45 p.m. Friday, a coastal storm will have decorated the region with one to four inches of snow, primarily on lawns and mailboxes - with the higher amounts in elevated areas north and west of Philadelphia.
