Tuesday was the deadline for roster expansion to 40 players prior to the Rule 5 Draft. The Phillies selected the contracts of 3 players to add to their 40-man roster – Edgar Garcia, Adonis Medina, and Arquimedes Gamboa. Their 40-man stands at 38 players. The rumored release of Justin Bour has not found its way to the transaction logs and he is still on their roster.
Strength and Conditioning starts this week for about 15 players or so. I’m going to head over to the Complex to break up the boredom. Hope I get to talk to somebody.
