RHS Roy Halladay (Grade 1/2 Lat Dorsi Strain): original diagnosis confirmed by Mets' team doctor after he received Halladay's past MRIs; due back in the fortnight following the All-Star Break.
2B-SS Freddy Galvis (back strain): sent to DL - JUST OCCURRED
PH-1B Jim Thome (back strain): activated from DL a few days ago; unable to play 1B but will DH in the next road trip to start on Friday
3B Placido Polanco (day-to-day with a cut on hand): unable to play for the next few days; DL stint not expected - JUST OCCURRED
IF Michael Martinez (foot): activated from DL; assigned to AAA
RHR Jose Contreras (UCL & flexor pronate tendon tears): no surgery scheduled; out for season & subsequently transferred to 60-Day DL
RHR Justin De Fratus (60 Day DL for an elbow sprain): throwing off of a mound at 75 feet
LF-1B Lanyce Nix (calf strain): heading to Clearwater to continue his current rehab program; playing in rehab games TBD
RHRs David Herndon (elbow inflammation) & Michael Stutes (shoulder inflammation): progressing VERY slowly.
2B Chase Utley and 1B Ryan Howard are about 30 days from returning to the lineup. Activation to play one or two games between June 30 and the All-Star Break (July 9-13) may not make sense but it may be necessary.
Can the Phillies' bad luck continue all season? I hope not but the list never ends!!!
