Phils invite nine players to Spring Training

The Phillies' website is reporting that the team has extended an invitation to nine players to attend spring training with the team. Left-hander Antonio Bastardo, righties Yorman Bazardo and Gary Majewski, infielders Jason Donald and Marcus Giles, outfielders Jason Ellison and Jeremy Slayden, and catchers Tuffy Gosewisch and Paul Hoover will all be in attendance attempting to make the opening day, 25-man roster.

Bastardo could see his chance to fill the void left by J.C. Romero's suspension. Majewski was a good reliever in Washington for a few years, and both Donald and Giles could fill in nicely at second base if Utley is not ready by opening day.
