Bryson Stott helps Phillies win
Nick Castellanos collected two hits, including a homer, and Bryson Stott finished 3-for-3 to pace the Phillies in a 7-1 win over the Orioles on Monday in Clearwater. 

Kyle Schwarber also homered for the Phils in the contest. Stott's performance raised his average this spring to .533. The No. 1 prospect is forcing himself into consideration for a spot on the Opening Day roster. 

Didi Gregorius appears to have the inside track on the starting role at shortstop, meaning Stott could move to third base and unseat Alec Bohm, who finished 0-for-3 on Monday and is hitting .105 this spring. 

Christopher Sanchez tossed three scoreless innings for the Phillies and surrendered just one hit. The 25-year-old hasn't allowed a run over six innings and has given up just two hits this spring. 

Bullpen Work 
Jeurys Familia, Brad Hand, and Corey Knebel each tossed a scoreless inning on Monday. The trio didn't surrender a hit and combined to collect five strikeouts. 

Minor Moves 
The club reassigned catchers Edgar Cabral and Austin Wynns, right-hander Joe Gatto, and outfielder Justin Williams to minor league camp on Monday.

Up Next 
The Phillies travel to Tampa on Tuesday to face the Yankees. Aaron Nola will start for the Phils, hoping to improve on what has been a rough spring. He's surrendered four homers over five innings is carrying a 7.20 ERA.
