The two most intriguing elements of the B-Game the Phillies staged at the Carpenter Complex against the Blue Jays both passed their respective tests. Outfielder Jayson Werth, the projected starter in right, saw his first action of the spring, while starters Jamie Moyer and Joe Blanton combined to throw seven scoreless innings.
The Phillies have purchased the contracts of righthander Dustin Cameron from the St. Paul Saints and catcher Brendan Akashian from the Southern Illinois Miners of the Frontier League.
Cameron, 27, has spent the last three years pitching for various independent league teams. He most recently was a member of the St. Paul Saints, but never played a game for them. He was 3-2 with a 1.38 ERA in 34 appearances for the Pensacola Pelicans of the American Association last season. After being traded to the New Jersey Jackals, he posted a 7.07 ERA in 11 appearances.
Akashian led the Frontier League with a .448 on base percentage last season.
