The line up for today’s Alumni Day game has some interesting features. In addition to the marquee pairing of starting pitchers Cole Hamels and R.A. Dickey, today marks the first appearance of Chase Utley at second base.
Ben Revere makes his first appearance in an outfield position other than center field since joining the Phillies in 2013 when he begins the game in left field. Odubel Herrera gets the start in center.
To round out the line up surprises, Brian Bogusevic with his .400 spring batting average and 3 home runs get the start in right field.
In addition the Phillies have made another roster move.
Tommy Joseph has been optioned/reassigned to the minor league camp. He joins recently optioned/reassigned Maikel Franco, Nefi Ogando, Joely Rodriguez, and Elvis Araujo as the latest reductions to the spring training roster.
