Phillies option two rotation candidates

It is officially a three-man battle to be the Phillies' No. 5 starter.

Phillies' fifth starter to be duel between newcomers

For the Phillies, this spring truly will be about the future: young players trying to establish themselves and prospects trying to live up to the hype and make their big league debuts before the end of the season. But Spring Training will be more than young players getting the opportunity to play. The Phillies have jobs up for grabs, too. Perhaps the most interesting battle will be for the team's No. 5 starter.
