2003 Upper Deck #476 Brandon Duckworth

I'm concluding my review of former Phillies reporting for Spring Training with other teams with a look at the AL East and AL Central teams.

AL East
Baltimore Orioles
Staff - Third base coach John Russell (84-88)

Boston Red Sox
Non-Roster Invitee - Pitcher Brandon Duckworth (01-03) and catcher Paul Hoover (09-10)
Staff - Manager Terry Francona (manager 97-00)

New York Yankees
40-Man Roster - Outfielder Greg Golson (08)
Non-Roster Invitee - Pitcher Freddy Garcia (07)

Tampa Bay Rays
Non-Roster Invitee - Pitcher R.J. Swindle (08)
Staff - Third base coach Tom Foley (85-86)

Toronto Blue Jays
2003 Topps 205 #126

And although he never suited up for the Phils, top prospect Kyle Drabek is in camp too.

AL Central
Chicago White Sox
40-Man Roster - Pitcher Gavin Floyd (04-06)

Cleveland Indians
40-Man Roster - Catcher Lou Marson (08) (and honorable mention to shortstop Jason Donald)
Staff - Third base coach Steve Smith (07-08)

Detroit Tigers
No former Phillies will be taking the field in Lakeland this spring.

Kansas City Royals
40-Man Roster - Pitchers Bruce Chen (00-01) and Robinson Tejada (05)
Non-Roster Invitee - Third baseman Pedro Feliz (08-09)

Minnesota Twins
40-Man Roster - DH Jim Thome (03-05)

And my posts from a few days ago need updating.  Russell Branyan (07) signed a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks today, while the San Diego Padres signed a minor league deal with reliever Geoff Geary (03-07) yesterday.
