Abreu talks about his new role with the Phillies in 2014
Bobby Abreu made his debut as a Phillie for 2014 yesterday and did what you want to do in a training game and that is see a lot of pitches. Abreu was being selective and he had to walks to show for it in his first game in a Phillies uniform since 2005 when he played all 162 games for the Phillies in his last full season with the team before heading out to the Yankees after playing 98 games in a Phillies uni in 2006.
Abreu knows what his role is going to be on this team should he make it, and that's just fine with him. Doing so well in Winter League games after the MLB season is what gave the Phillies the reason to sign Abreu again.
The Phillies again take on the Blue Jays today after being on the losing end of a 4-3 rain shortened opener yesterday.
