Worth noting

• Ruf is taking grounders at first base, as well as working out in the outfield. He will get time in both spots this spring. "We'll see what we've got," Manuel said. "He's going to get to play a lot."

• Manuel likes what he sees from his pitchers early in camp. He specifically mentioned left-hander Jake Diekman's bullpen session on Friday. The skipper also is impressed with Rule 5 Draft pick Ender Inciarte's speed in the outfield.

• Manuel said that Freddy Galvis could play 60-70 games this season, giving him about 240 at-bats, plus 60 pinch-hitting at-bats. "Does he help us giving us 300 at-bats here, or 500 at-bats in the Minor Leagues?" Manuel said. "I say being on our team, getting 300 at-bats [is the choice]."

• The Phillies will have an intrasquad game at noon on Feb. 22 at Bright House Field. The game is free and open to the public.
