It may be early in the season, but it's never too early for a few surprises, and the Philadelphia Phillies have certainly provided plenty of those through the first couple of series of the 2012 season.
With guys like Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Jose Contreras on the disabled list, we knew that the Phillies wouldn't look like they have in years past, at least through the first couple months of the season, but who knew that rookie Freddy Galvis would start every game at second base? Who knew that Joe Savery would break camp with the club?
The short version of this story is that nothing has gone according to plan for the Phillies so far this season, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.
The Phillies have shown an uncanny ability to adjust on the fly in recent seasons, and they're at it again early in 2012.
This slide show is using the Phillies 25-man roster as of April 14, 2012 and uses statistics up to that date.
