The Phillies announced a 53-man "summer camp" roster on Sunday night.
The roster can grow to 60 as the team continues to formulate its pool of players for the 60-game season that will begin on July 23 or 24.
Teams will be able to carry 30 players on their active roster for the first two weeks of the season. The number shrinks to 28 after two weeks and then to 26 two weeks after that.
Once the season begins, players in the 60-man pool who are not on the active big-league roster will continue to train as a unit at a satellite training site. Lehigh Valley is the Phillies' satellite site.
All 53 players named to the roster on Sunday will participate in "spring training 2," which begins this week at Citizens Bank Park.
The Phillies' 53-man list includes 31 pitchers, 10 infielders, three catchers and nine outfielders. Top pitching prospect Spencer Howard is on the list.
The Phillies can add up to seven more players to their list. The team could risk losing a player if it removes him from the list.
Two pitchers, David Robertson and Seranthony Dominguez, are on the 60-day disabled list. Robertson had Tommy John surgery in August. Dominguez is headed for Tommy John surgery.
