Phillies Update: Kyle Schwarber’s debut, and Castellanos’ introductory press conference
We’re in for a busy week of Phillies baseball down in Clearwater, Florida. Kyle Schwarber is set to make his Spring Training debut on Wednesday vs the Blue Jays, while Nick Castellanos’ opening press conference will take place on Wednesday as well.
Kyle Schwarber’s Phillies Debut
Kyle Schwarber’s opening press conference took place yesterday, and the newly acquired Phillies left fielder is ready to get to work. Upon his arrival, Schwarber spoke with Realmuto, asking questions about the Phillies roster and where he can provide the most help ahead of Opening Day.
Schwarber asked Realmuto the following:
- Who are the guys we have to work with?
- Who are the guys who are going to grind with you?
Realmuto said he could sense Schwarber’s attitude and love for the game the second he walked into BayCare Ballpark. We have heard a ton about how great Schwarber will be in the Phillies locker room as a veteran and proven winner and it’s great to see that he’s not wasting any time in being vocal about making this ball club better.
Schwarber will make his spring debut on Wednesday vs the Toronto Blue Jays. That game will be one of the nine televised games on NBCSP, so don’t miss Schwarber’s debut with the Phillies.
