With spring training set to begin, let’s take a look at some of the roster battles set to take place in Clearwater for the Phillies.

The Phillies are set to begin spring training this week! It’s been four and a half months since they last played. With the Eagles now champions and their season over, we can finally start looking forward to baseball season.

As with every year, there are a few roster battles that will be hashed out over the month and a half the team is in Clearwater. Most of the main pieces on the roster are settled, but the last few spots are up for grabs between prospects, non-roster invitees, and returning members from the 2017 team. Let’s break down the battles set to take place in spring training this year.
