CLEARWATER, Fla. (CBS) - JC Romero will be an important part of the Phillies’ bullpen this season, and he is glad to start the spring with absolutely no problems.

“Yeah,  I don’t remember the last time I showed up to spring training being healthy or not having any type of suspension, issues, anything like that,” he told KYW Newsradio today.  “I feel blessed being back to normal — and most importantly, being healthy.”

And Romero says he is more ready than ever to play:

“I feel good. I feel like all the work I put into the offseason is paying off right now.  Plus, I’m picking a little bit here and there from the brains of some of those starters that pound the strike zone so much.  It seems like, throughout my batting practice sessions, it’s paying a dividend.”

Romero served a long suspension last year for using an illegal, over-the-counter supplement.  He went 1-0 in 60 games for the Phillies in 2010, with a 3.68 ERA.
