Amaro told us @mlbnetworkradio that they are right up against the luxury tax and they have to be careful of it because of all the penalties.
Amaro said Ty Wigginton will play first base regularly until Ryan Howard returns from the disabled list. Jim Thome will also get occasional starts at first.
Amaro said he expects to platoon John Mayberry Jr. and Laynce Nix in left field. Unless Domonic Brown wows his bosses in Spring Training, he’ll head to the Phillies' Triple-A club.
