The Phillies’ clubhouse was a little roomier Sunday morning after 10 players were shipped off to the minor-league complex on Saturday. For several of the players, the move was hardly a demotion. Some of the organization’s top prospects got a month-long taste of the big leagues and now must prepare for their respective minor-league seasons and the climb toward Philadelphia. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. mentioned that he was particularly impressed with third baseman Cody Asche, catcher Tommy Joseph and pitchers Adam Morgan, Ethan Martin and Jonathan Pettibone.
