Andy innocent of impostering

Andy Phillips says MLB has cleared him of any wrongdoing:

"It's sad that I even have to talk about this and defend myself," Phillips said. "I don't know why someone would do this. I know it's happened to other professional athletes where they've been impersonated, but it's a shame. Anyone who knows me knows I would never have been involved in anything remotely close to something like that."

He didn't play yesterday, but got a clutch hit-by-pitch today. The Bucs had a ninth inning comeback against the Red Sox:

The Pirates trailed 2-0 heading to the ninth, but Neil Walker and Jose Tabata drew one-out walks and Alvarez followed with a run-scoring double. Andy Phillips was hit by a pitch to load the bases and Steve Lerud grounded to first to plate the tying run before Alvarez raced home on an error by Boston shortstop Argenis Diaz for a 3-2 lead.

Meanwhile, Mike Stanton, released by the Reds last year, reveals that he was dealing with the death of his younger brother at the time. He's trying to make the Cubs' roster.

And Doug Mientkiewicz has found a home. He's signed with the Dodgers.
