Phillies send two more down to bring roster to 35

According to Todd Zolecki on Twitter, the Phillies have sent two more players down to the minors: IF Andy Tracy and P Ehren Wasserman. Those moves leave the Phillies with 35 players in camp, meaning they have 10 more moves to make before the beginning of the season. With two of those moves expected to be putting Brad Lidge and J.C. Romero to the disabled list, that means that 8 more players need to be cut. The demotion of Wasserman likely means that David Herndon, a Rule 5 acquisition, will get one of the final spots in the bullpen.

Here is who's left on the Phillies Spring Training roster with locks to make the team listed in bold:

Infielders: Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, Placido Polanco, Greg Dobbs, Juan Castro, Ozzie Chavez, Cody Ransom, Wilson Valdez

Outfielders: Raul Ibanez, Shane Victorino, Jayson Werth, Ben Francisco, Ross Gload, John Mayberry, Dewayne Wise

Catchers: Carlos Ruiz, Brian Schneider, Paul Hoover, Dane Sardinha

Starting Pitchers: Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, Joe Blanton, J.A. Happ, Jamie Moyer, Kyle Kendrick

Bullpen: Ryan Madson, Danys Baez, Chad Durbin, Jose Contreras, Antonio Bastardo, David Herndon (Rule 5), Mike Zagurski

Injured: Brad Lidge, J.C. Romero
