Jake Arrietta threw just over 30 pitches in two innings with a short break in between yesterday.

Phillies Scott Kingery, Jorge Alfaro, Andrew Pullin and Logan Moore were the batters – there were no fielders or umpires.

“It was great,” Arrieta said. “A lot of people out here and a lot of people are excited for the Phillies in 2018 and we all should be. We have a lot of good things going on here.”

Things started off slow as Arrieta didn’t record a swing and a miss until the third batter but he did break two of Alfaro’s bats.
