The Phillies arrived back in Philadelphia late Thursday night and are ready to start their campaign for the 2014 season.

Opening day for the Phillies will be in Texas on Monday to take on the Rangers--who will be without an ace of their own in Yu Darvish.

The Phillies, as we know, will be without their ace Cole Hamels who will be sidelined for at least the next month with shoulder soreness.

The 25-man roster the Phillies plan to start the season with must be handed into MLB this weekend. The Phillies play host to the Pirates tonight and tomorrow night in their annual 'On Deck' series.

The Phillies also announced that five other big leaguers will join Hamels on the DL once the season starts.

RHP Mike Adams - recovering from right shoulder surgery (retroactive to March 26)




INF/OF Freddy Galvis – left knee infection (retroactive to March 21)




RHP Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez – right shoulder tendinitis (retroactive to March 21)

RHP Ethan Martin – right shoulder inflammation (retroactive to March 21)
