CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The Phillies unofficially finalized their infield Sunday when they released Yuniesky Betancourt to essentially guarantee Freddy Galvis and Kevin Frandsen spots on the Opening Day roster.

But the Phillies still need a fifth outfielder behind Ben Revere, Domonic Brown, John Mayberry Jr. and Laynce Nix. Rule 5 Draft pick Ender Inciarte seemed to be in a strong position to make the team when the Phillies optioned Darin Ruf to Triple-A Lehigh Valley last week, but after making errors in consecutive games Saturday and Sunday, the door has opened for infielder/outfielder Pete Orr, while the Phillies continue to search for outfield help outside the organization.

Orr went 1-for-4 with one RBI in Tuesday's 10-1 victory over the Rays at Bright House Field. He is hitting .308 (8-for-26) this spring. Inciarte went 0-for-1 and is hitting .250 (6-for-24).
