In some editions Friday, quotations attributed to St. Joseph's basketball coach Phil Martelli in a story about Thursday's game against Georgia Tech were erroneous. A story Thursday wrongly described part of the Cliff Lee trade in 2009. Tyson Gillies was traded from Seattle to the Phillies.

The Phillies signed righthander Rodrigo Lopez to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training. This will be the second stint with the Phillies for Lopez, 37, who made seven appearances for them in 2009. He pitched in only four major-league games last season, all with the Cubs, and figures to pitch at triple-A Lehigh Valley as insurance. Lopez can earn $1 million if he makes the Phillies, according to CSNPhilly.com. Meanwhile, three Phillies will represent Canada at this spring's World Baseball Classic.

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)

PHILLIPPE AUMONT came to the Phillies organization 2 1/2 years ago as a near-ready prospect, part of a trio of such players arriving from Seattle. They came over on the day Roy Halladay became a Phillie and Cliff Lee became an ex-Phillie, as a result of what the organization called a need to replenish a farm system that had suffered from trades. Aumont, who came from the Mariners with fellow righthander J.C. Ramirez and outfielder Tyson Gillies, was the first to arrive in Philadelphia.

The Phillies made some moves Friday to finalize their 40-man roster in anticipation of December's Rule 5 draft. Righthander Phillippe Aumont, catcher Sebastian Valle, lefthander Jake Diekman, and outfielder Tyson Gillies were all added to the 40-man roster. The Phillies are at 39 with those additions. Aumont and Valle were no-brainers. Some evaluators in the team's front office believe Aumont has closer potential after being converted back to relief in 2011. Aumont, 22, finished the season in triple A and has an outside shot at a roster spot this spring.

DETROIT - The Phillies 42d player this year has as many LinkedIn endorsements for Microsoft Office as he does for baseball. His resume lists his current employer as the Phillies. Before that, he was a program associate at a project-management company. He has a degree in civil engineering. Steve Susdorf was called up on Thursday, had his first major-league at bat against the Cardinals the same day - and grounded into double play. The Phillies had placed Domonic Brown on the seven-day disabled list for concussions before Thursday's game, and needed a replacement, quickly.

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?

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.

The situation called for a strikeout, but Roy Halladay said he doesn't think that way. Bases loaded, one out, David Wright at the plate in a third inning that was on the verge of turning ugly. A strikeout shows the light at the end of the tunnel. A strikeout keeps everyone where they are. "I've heard guys say that," Halladay said Thursday. He had a better idea. "I think if you're pitching trying to strike guys out, you're going to find yourself in a hole in a hurry," Halladay said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Pat Gillick sat back in his chair and considered the hypothetical dilemma. You can have Cole Hamels on your team for as many as 5 more years, including this season. If you wanted to be able to compete as soon as, say, 2017, would you be in better shape with a 33-year-old Hamels on your roster, atop your rotation, or instead with the possible collection of prospects you might get back for him in a trade? "That's a hard question to answer - and I'm not trying to dodge it," Gillick said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - At this point, after another spring in which he failed to stick with the major-league club, Phillippe Aumont probably would benefit from a change of scenery. "Obviously, I think anybody would think that," he said. "But the bottom line is I'm still here, and I'm still getting an opportunity somewhere. That's all that really matters. " None of baseball's other 29 teams deemed Aumont worthy of a waiver claim, so the hard-throwing but erratic 6-foot-7 reliever was outrighted Wednesday off the Phillies' 40-man roster.

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.

CINCINNATI - With the team in free-fall mode and the trade deadline in the not-so-distant future, several veteran Phillies players will almost certainly be the subjects of a flurry of rumors over the next 8 weeks. A fan base eager for change will probably welcome those rumors, hoping they'll advance beyond the rumor stage. But a lesson in trading established, proven veteran talent for prospects presented itself on the daily baseball transactions report yesterday afternoon. Tyson Gillies cleared waivers and was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster.

CINCINNATI - The Phillies conceded another mistake Friday when outfielder Tyson Gillies cleared waivers and was removed from the 40-man roster. Gillies, 25, will remain in the organization. This designation was a formality; Gillies was never close to reaching the majors. He was one of three players acquired in December 2009 from Seattle for Cliff Lee. The Lee trade, to this point, is a total failure. Righthander J.C. Ramirez lasted 18 games in the majors with a 7.50 ERA before being jettisoned.

ALLENTOWN - Tyson Gillies was just 4 years old when his parents noticed something different about him. They thought he was not focusing, and ignoring them when they spoke to him. He was tested, and it was learned that he has 50 percent hearing in one ear, and just 30 percent in the other. "I was reading lips when I was 2 and 3 and speaking perfectly, so nobody knew," Gillies said. "There was something different. I found myself getting lost in different situations. Finally, when they brought me in for my third or fourth hearing test, they closed the blinds and I couldn't read lips anymore.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The Phillies' quest for outfield depth spawned a Saturday morning conversation with infielder Freddy Galvis. Had he ever played center field? "Nope," he said. Yet that is where the versatile Venezuelan stood Saturday afternoon. "They just told me to go out a little bit in center field," Galvis said, "take some balls, and play today. " There is no fifth starter yet to replace Cole Hamels, the top conundrum of this spring. But the dearth of outfield options is just as troubling.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - The following is a list of the 11 players acquired by three teams when they traded away Cliff Lee in the last 5 years: Jason Knapp, Jason Donald, Carlos Carrasco, Lou Marson, Tyson Gillies, Phillippe Aumont, J.C. Ramirez, Justin Smoak, Josh Lueke, Blake Beaven and Matthew Lawson. None of those players is a major league All-Star. In fact, only two have a very good chance at being on any big-league roster when the season gets underway. The Phillies aren't likely to trade Cliff Lee any time soon.
