The Phillies practiced as a full squad for the first time this spring on Tuesday in Clearwater.

CLEARWATER, FLA. -

Phillies pitchers and catchers reported to Spring Training late last week. Tuesday, it was time for position players to follow suit as the Phils held the first full squad workout in Clearwater.

The Phillies will play their first spring training game next Wednesday.

That gives Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg a week to get an early reading on his team.

There are a few newcomers to the Phillies locker room along with some veterans looking for a return to form.

Sandberg is in his first spring training as Phillies manager. He's wasted no time getting down to business.
