Player to Watch – RF Jose Bautista: Joey Bats, as they like to call him above the border, is one of baseball’s most feared hitters. But despite that fact, he’s only hitting .232 with a .351 OBP, both below his career averages. His power numbers haven’t taken a hit though, belting 19 home runs and 47 RBIs, good for third and sixth respectively in the Majors.

Series Overview: Long story short (busy weekend): The Phillies are on a two-game winning streak and need to keep it rolling against Toronto.

Jim Thome has been crushing the ball during the AL road trip and will get three more games to bat as the designated hitter.

Cliff Lee seeks his first win of the season on Saturday.
