ATLANTA — The Phillies got some encouraging medical news for a change yesterday, particularly on prized prospect Tyler Green.
Green had his ailing right shoulder treated yesterday in Los Angeles by Dodgers physician Frank Jobe.
According to Phils physician Phillip Marone, Jobe cleaned some debris from Green's shoulder, but did not think that the problem warranted a more serious operation.
Marone said that Green, the club's No. 1 pick in the 1991 draft, was given a rehabilitation program and should be ready for spring training.
