Zack Wheeler
In Tuesday's Grapefruit League matchup, the Philadelphia Phillies clashed with the Baltimore Orioles at BayCare Park in Clearwater. The game saw Zack Wheeler taking the mound for the Phillies for the first time this preseason, though his efforts were not enough to secure a win as the Orioles emerged victorious with a 3-2 scoreline. 
 
Wheeler tossed two innings, allowing just one run while throwing 30 pitches, 20 of which were strikes. 
 
Max Castillo contributed positively for the Phillies, pitching three scoreless frames and collecting four strikeouts, despite the team's eventual loss. 
 
Offensively, Jake Cave stood out for the Phillies, going 2-for-2 at the plate. However, Kyle Schwarber continued to struggle, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts, bringing his spring total to 1-for-14 with eight strikeouts. 
 
Following their defeat, the Phillies will enjoy a day off on Wednesday before resuming their preseason campaign against the Tampa Bay Rays in Port Charlotte on Thursday.
