Placido Polanco, who played most of the season with a sports hernia, had a follow-up exam with William Meyers and is continuing his rehabilitation in Miami. He had double sports hernia surgery performed earlier this month.

On Thursday, Cole Hamels had the stitches removed after surgery to remove loose bodies from his left elbow and is continuing to rehab in Philadelphia. He had a follow-up exam on Friday for his hernia surgery with Ernest Rosato and has been cleared to return to his offseason program.

Calls to Hamels' agent, John Boggs, were not immediately returned.
If the Phillies are unable to work out a contract extension with Hamels, who turns 28 in December, he'll be offered arbitration.

He remains under contract for 2012 at $2.5 million, with a club option for 2013.
