Full Update of Surprises, Busts and Injuries at Philadelphia Phillies Camp
Derick Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Baseball is a sport where anything can happen and no time of the year epitomizes that more than spring training, where rookies, veterans and players who aren't even guaranteed a spot on the roster congregate with a common goal: Make the club and win a World Series title. 

As you can imagine, spring training breeds a number of interesting results, and the Philadelphia Phillies are no exception. This is a club battling age and injuries, doing their best to prove that they can still compete in the National League East. 

Throughout the season, keeping this club healthy is going to be the key to their success. If names like Roy Halladay, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard are on the field and producing, they can contend. 

They'll also have to receive some positive play from a few unlikely sources—we'll call those guys the "surprises"—and avoid players that struggle over long periods of time. For the sake of this slideshow, those guys will be called "busts." 

With those parameters in mind, let's update where the Phillies' injuries, surprises and busts stand at this point in camp.
