Phillies Spring Training 2012, Grapefruit League Schedule: Phils Face Yankees Twice

The Philadelphia Phillies kick off their Grapefruit League schedule on Saturday, March 3, in a game against the New York Yankees. The two teams will follow Friday's game with another on Saturday, with the Phillies at "home" for the first and the Yankees at "home" for the second meeting.

In other Phillies Spring Training news, Shane Victorino is looking for a five-year contract extension from the Phillies.

Victorino said this week he would prefer to make a deal with Philadelphia sooner rather than later. He also said he is looking for a five-year deal, but is willing to take a reasonable hometown discount to avoid free agency.

The 31 year-old outfielder is set to become a free agent at year's end, if a deal isn't agreed to prior. Victorino is coming off his best season as a pro, recording a WAR of 5.9.
