Ruben Amaro Jr. addresses Phillies aging stars

Jeff Zelevansky

Philly.com Sports: Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. stated that regardless of the additions the team made this offseason, the health of the stars currently on the team's roster is the most important dynamic of success in 2013.

Amaro, in fact, has openly admitted that the good health of pitcher Roy Halladay, second baseman Chase Utley, and first baseman Ryan Howard is far more relevant than any of his efforts to upgrade the roster through trades and free agency. The general manager Tuesday updated the condition of all three players who missed significant time during the team's 81-81 season that ended the Phillies' run of five consecutive National League East titles.
