Opening Day is just one week away from today.  Accordingly, the Phillies are putting the finishing touches on their Opening Day roster.  Here is a rundown of some of the recent roster moves.

Outfield

  • Andrew Pullin returned to minor league camp
  • The Phillies added Pedro Florimon to their 40-man roster. He will likely make the team.  Florimon started in right field on Thursday and is officially listed as an outfielder, though he plays a good amount of infield
  • Danny Ortiz was moved to minor league camp

Infield

  • Utility player Ryan Flaherty has been released
  • Elizer Alvarez, acquired in a September trade for Juan Nicaso, has been traded to the Texas Rangers for cash considerations
  • Invitee Mitch Walding headed to minor league camp
  • 40-man roster member Jesmuel Valentin is having a strong Spring and may make the club

Bullpen

  • Right-handed pitcher Yacksel Rios was optioned to Triple-A
  • Left-handed pitcher Fernando Abad was given his release

Catcher

  • Logan Moore headed over to minor league camp
  • Phillies are reportedly trying to gauge trade interest in Cameron Rupp, who does not appear to have a place on this Phillies roster
