Phillies Altherr working with Matt Stairs

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Matt Stairs, the Phillies' new hitting coach, had 23 pinch-hit homers in his career, the most in Major League history.

His ERA was 4.88 last year, but all the previous years it was pretty good except the innings pitched were all low. He looks good though so far.

Slugger notches two hits

Pedro Álvarez homers in #OrangeSpring action vs Red Sox. http://atmlb.com/2ng7rX1
