    Grapefruit League: Matusz allows one run in five innings in 4-1 loss to Phillies
    It was by no means Brian Matusz’s most impressive start of the spring, but as far as results go, the Orioles lefthander did his job. Matusz allowed seven hits over five innings Tuesday afternoon against the Phillies at Ed Smith Stadium, but yielded...
  • VICTORINO PLACED ON DISABLED LIST

     
    The Phillies today placed All-Star centerfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 4, with a ligament sprain in his right thumb, the team announced. To fill his spot on the 25-man roster, the Phillies recalled infielder........
