Other News and Notes

  • Placido Polanco worked out the other day, and says his injured leg is improving. He hopes to be back in the lineup tomorrow night, giving the Phillies a much needed boost and improved defense at third.

  • David Bell worked out earlier this week with no pain in his back. He is set to take live BP early this week as his next test, and we'll see how he responds.

  • Amaury Telemaco will be skipped in his next turn in the rotation. He is scheduled to pitch on Thursday in the Florida series finale. Instead, Kevin Millwood will go that day on 4 days rest. Telemaco will instead pitch at home on Saturday, against the free-falling Reds.
