Eude Brito made somewhat of a surprise emergence onto the Phillies roster in 2005 and did a good job at the big league level. Now, without a definite job to return to in 2006, Brito looks to win a spot out of spring training, rather than having to wait for one to open.

The Phillies have been slow to let young players try to contribute. Chase Utley nearly rotted behind Placido Polanco, Ryan Howard is only in the majors because of Jim Thome's injury and going back even further, there are plenty of young players who had to wait to find time in the Phillies lineup. That may all change if the front office is paying attention.

There is a poem called "Every Youth" and these lines ring true for a Phillies squad seemingly bent on securing that last valuable playoff birth in King Bud's Championship Round. It goes like this..."Every youth has a quest to make for life is the King's Highway;" The names are only now becoming familiar, Ryan Howard, Robinson Tejeda, Eude Brito and later perhaps Carlos Ruiz, Shane Victorino and Gavin Floyd. In these names the Phils would do well to exclaim these words: "In youth we trust!"

Left-hander Eude Brito has had some catching up to do in the past couple of seasons. The Phillies thought that they had found a strong young pitcher who was blowing away hitters his own age. Then, it turned out that Brito was caught up in the red tape of truth and the Phillies suddenly discovered he was three years older than they thought. <b>Today's look at Eude Brito is a free preview of the kind of information you receive as a PhillyBaseballNews.com Insider.</b>
