From the transaction wire: The Phillies optioned OF Michael Bourn and LHP Daniel Haigwood to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre; Optioned RHP Scott Mathieson and RHP Zack Segovia to Double-A Reading; Reassigned C John Vanden Berg, C Jason Jaramillo, LHP Gio Gonzalez, LHP Matt White, RHP Aaron Myette, RHP Jeremy Cummings to the Minor League Camp.
Beerleaguer take: No surprises from this list, with assignments right in line with what was initially reported at the Winter Tour in Reading.
In progress: Ryan Howard has hit his eighth home run of spring training. The Phillies are leading this one 7-0 after four. Brett Myers got the start this afternoon and from the looks of it, pitched well. Aaron Rowand said "platoon this" and nailed his second round-tripper of spring.
