Kevin Slowey RP PHI 3 Days
Manager Ryne Sandberg indicated Wednesday that Slowey remains in competition for the final spot in the Phillies' rotation, CSN Philadelphia reports.
Slowey's last four outing have been in relief, so the signs do not point to him getting the job. He is competing with Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez and Sean O'Sullivan.

Slowey tossed a scoreless inning with two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.
Slowey is said to be in the mix for a rotation spot, but he has worked only one inning in two of his last three appearances, and the other outing was 1.2 innings. The usage pattern indicates the Phillies are looking at Slowey for a bullpen spot and not a starting role. He could find his way into the rotation later this season if the Phillies do decide to start him out in the pen.

Slowey remains in the mix for the final spot in the Phillies' rotation, CSN Philadelphia reports.
The Phils have one opening in their rotation with Cliff Lee looking at potential season-ending surgery and Chad Billingsley not expected to be ready until late-April. Slowey is competing with Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez and Paul Clemens for the job. It is likely down to Slowey and Gonzalez given Clemens' recent struggles. Slowey has a 2.35 ERA and a 5:2 K:BB ratio in 7.2 innings this spring.

Slowey went three perfect innings with two strikeouts Sunday in his second start of the spring.
Slowey is competing with David Buchanan and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez for the final spot in the Phillies' rotation. It is possible the Phillies will have two spots open if Cliff Lee (elbow) needs to miss extended time or if Cole Hamels is traded prior to the start of the regular season.

Slowey signed a minor league deal, which includes a spring training invite, with the Phillies on Monday, Stephen Gross of The Morning Call reports.
Slowey appeared in 17 games for the Marlins last season before being released in late-June. He compiled a disappointing 5.30 ERA, allowing 22 earned runs and three homers over 37.1 cumulative innings. The 30-year-old put together three straight double-digit win seasons from 2008-10 with the Twins, but he didn't find the same success in Miami. He'll compete for a roster spot with the Phillies in spring training.

Marlins selected the contract of RHP Kevin Slowey.
The 29-year-old right-hander pitched well in Grapefruit League play, posting a 2.20 ERA, 0.61 WHIP and 11/1 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings. His versatility, in being able to start and relieve, was a key factor in making the roster. Unless he's in the rotation though, he doesn't hold any fantasy value.

Kevin Slowey pitched three perfect innings in his final spring outing against the Yankees on Friday.
Slowey put the cherry on top of a very nice spring, striking out two while posting zeros across the rest of the board in his three innings. Slowey leaves exhibition play with a 2.20 ERA over 16 1/3 innings. He's in camp as a non-roster invitee, and if he can't break camp with the club he'll likely catch on with another starter-needy team.

Facing his old team, Kevin Slowey was charged with two runs in five innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Twins.
One of the runs was a result of Oswaldo Arcia's flyball getting lost in the sun. Slowey is having a fine spring, but with Tom Koehler in the lead for a rotation spot and Brad Hand out of options, it doesn't figure to result in Slowey making the Marlins. Perhaps another team will pick him up.
