Now that the actual fake games have begun it can be tough to follow who you are watching. With so many players wearing numbers in the 60s, 70s, and 80s this time of year, I always find it easier to create a spot to reference who’s who in the Phillies Spring Training Games. Please keep in mind that this is only the official Spring Roster, the 40-man plus any non-roster invites. From time to time, other minor leaguers will join the big club on a game-by-game basis, but mostly for emergency situations. This will occur most often with pitchers.

First, the 40-man roster:
Pitchers (23): 86 Drew Anderson, 66 Mark Appel, 49 Alec Asher, 53 Joaquin Benoit,
21 Clay Buchholtz, 56 Zach Eflin, 48 Jerad Eickhoff, 71 Elniery Garcia, 57 Luis Garcia,
46 Jeanmar Gomez, 58 Jeremy Hellickson, 72 Ben Lively, 39 Adam Morgan,
50 Hector Neris, 17 Pat Neshek, 27 Aaron Nola, 73 Ricardo Pinto, 74 Nick Pivetta,
61 Edubray Ramos, 63 Joely Rodriguez, 44 Jake Thompson, 75 Alberto Tirado,
28 Vince Velasquez
Catchers (3): 38 Jorge Alfaro, 64 Andrew Knapp, 29 Cameron Rupp
Infield (6): 4 Andres Blanco, 7 Maikel Franco, 13 Freddy Galvis, 16 Cesar Hernandez,
19 Tommy Joseph, 76 Jesmuel Valentin
Outfield (8): 23 Aaron Altherr, 77 Dylan Cozens, 2 Tyler Goeddel, 37 Odubel Herrera,
47 Howie Kendrick, 24 Roman Quinn, 5 Michael Saunders, 65 Nick Williams

And of course, the non-roster invites(NRI):
Pitchers (7): 79 Victor Arano, 54 Pedro Beato, 15 Sean Burnett, 94 Dalier Hinojosa, 31 Michael Mariot, 60 Colton Murray, 55 Cesar Ramos
Catchers (4): 34 Ryan Hanigan, 59 Bryan Holaday, 68 Logan Moore, 83 Chance Numata
Infield (7): 67 JP Crawford, 30 Taylor Featherston, 18 Pedro Florimon, 62 Hector Gomez, 70 Rhys Hoskins, 80 Scott Kingery, 78 Brock Stassi
