Phillies Spring Training 2012: Grapefruit League Schedule

Finally, just a few short days separate the Philadelphia Philles and their first regular season game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday afternoon.

It's been a bumpy ride for the Phillies so far. The team has been plagued by its fair share of injuries in Spring Training, with Chase Utley the most notable Phillie missing serious time.

The team has performed poorly on the field, having just a 12-16 mark and allowing more runs than any other team in the Grapefruit League sans the Houston Astros and Pirates.

However, with a bevy of talent still healthy and ready to get going, Philadelphia should be a force for the long haul. The pitching will fall into place with Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels leading the charge. The big question is how many runs can this team score with Utley and Ryan Howard missing time?

Soon enough, we'll all find out.

Monday, April 2: Pittsburgh at Philadelphia 7:05 p.m. ET

The Phillies will host the Pirates in a mini two game set before the regular season commences.

Tuesday, April 3: Pittsburgh at Philadelphia 7:05 p.m. ET

They do it all again before getting ready to meet each other when it counts on Thursday.
