Gillies, who has barely been healthy enough to stay on the field in the two years since coming to the Phillies, is hoping to build the same level of excitement that surrounds fellow Cliff Lee kid Phillippe Aumont. The 23-year-old outfielder had one of the best at bats in yesterday's loss, roping an opposite-field RBI double against a left-handed pitcher. Gillies figures to see plenty of action this spring until the Phillies narrow the rosters, particularly on the road. The Phils don't have much center field depth in camp; Rich Thompson could appear from time to time this spring.
Lineups are posted: Gillies CF, Podsednik DH, Wigginton 3B, Pence RF, Brown LF, Mayberry 1B, Martinez 2B, Galvis SS, Gosewisch C. Wigginton, Pence, Brown, Mayberry and Martinez have started each of the Phillies three exhibition games, including the Florida State game. Pitching-wise, Joel Pineiro, David Purcey, Antonio Bastardo and Aumont are slated after Halladay.
