Day 82 of Manfred’s lockout. Meetings are scheduled all week with hopes of a March 1st start date for major league spring training. The first week of Grapefruit League games has already been banged
Whatever happens, the minicamp will continue for another week. Followed by the start of minor league spring training on March 2nd. I hope settling the one doesn’t disrupt the other.
The Phillies announced the signing of Josh Ockimey to a minor league contract. He’s a 26-year-old left-handed batter who plays first base. He’ll provide depth at Reading.
This is the courtesy thread for comments and discussion about the Phillies and other BASEBALL topics.
