Stutes has shoulder stiffness

Michael Stutes is experiencing some shoulder stiffness and will not start in a bullpen game against the Yankees on Friday.

Stutes, who is a lock to make the bullpen this season, said he had been feeling stiff most of spring, thinking it was just typical stiffness experienced in the spring training. “I finally had to say something,” Stutes said when the stiffness persisted.

The good news is this isn’t serious and Stutes expectes to pitch before the Phillies leave Florida on Sunday. “I’d be surprised if I didn’t throw in a game before we left here,” he said.

Antonio Bastardo will be making the start on Friday in the bullpen-only game.
