The Phillies will place Tommy Greene on the 15-day disabled list unless the righthander can convince them in the next three days that his strained right groin muscle is much better. What that means in an optimistic scenario is that Greene would sit out two starts instead of the one he already is scheduled to miss. Team physician Phillip Marone examined Greene before last night's game against the Cardinals. Marone said that, had he been forced to decide yesterday, he probably would have chosen to recommend that Greene be placed on the disabled list.

Vicente Padilla will remain on the disabled list after Phillies physician Michael Ciccotti examined the righthander yesterday and discovered triceps tendinitis and elbow inflammation in his pitching arm. Padilla will undergo an MRI today and a bone scan tomorrow. He has been on the disabled list since May 30 because of biceps tendinitis. The Phillies believed that condition was resolved when Padilla made a rehab start Sunday at Triple A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Padilla was removed from that start in the second inning after throwing just 33 pitches.

Ken Griffey Jr. went on the 15-day disabled list last night after a test found inflammation in a tendon behind his right knee. The Cincinnati Reds' centerfielder missed his fifth straight game with the injury. He was put on the DL after a 9-1 victory over the Florida Marlins. A fan was removed from the left-field bleachers at Chase Field in Phoenix for throwing an object at Barry Bonds during last night's game between San Francisco and Arizona. The object, which resembled a toothpaste tube, landed a few feet in front of Bonds and was removed by a security guard.

Montreal Expos rightfielder Carl Everett was put on the disabled list yesterday because of an injured right shoulder and will be out three to four weeks. An MRI exam revealed a tear and a bruise, assistant general manager Tony Siegle said. Everett was hurt on a hard slide into second base in the fourth inning of Wednesday's 9-0 loss to Florida. He was replaced in right field yesterday by Ron Calloway. Everett was batting .233, with one home run and two RBIs. The Expos will be at Citizens Bank Park for a three-game series with the Phillies beginning tonight.

An MRI yesterday showed Curt Schilling's right shoulder was normal, but the Boston Red Sox righthander will go on the disabled list after getting a cortisone shot. Schilling will miss at least two starts after he is put on the DL tomorrow, retroactive to Tuesday, with what is being called shoulder fatigue, MLB.com reported. The former Phillie, 14th on the career strikeout list with 3,086, failed to fan a batter in his last start, the first time that's happened since 1993. Los Angeles Dodgers righthander Jason Schmidt had season-ending shoulder surgery and is not expected to return until spring training 2008.

More long needles might be in Lenny Dykstra's future. So might an operation, which would require a lengthy recovery period. But for now, all Dykstra knows for sure is that he has been handed a short- term baseball ban. The Phillies' centerfielder, who continues to suffer lower-back pain, was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 4. He will be eligible to come off for Monday's game in New York, though it is extremely unlikely...

Zach Eflin pitched the last few weeks with a fracture in his right foot, which was not discovered until Friday and will likely be enough to shut down the rookie pitcher for the rest of the season. The stress fracture was discovered when Eflin had an MRI on his knees. He was placed on the disabled list last week with tendinitis in both knees. Eflin said he had received treatment for the foot, not knowing it was fractured. He does not know how the injury occurred. Manager Pete Mackanin said, "It's unlikely that he will be back this year.

DENVER - Adam Morgan's start Thursday night was his first in two weeks. The 11-2 loss to Colorado will likely be his last for a while. Morgan - who has a habit of yielding home runs - was no match for hitter-friendly Coors Field on a hot summer night when the ball flew. He allowed six earned runs in five innings and was tagged for three homers. The lefthander is tied with Jeremy Hellickson for the team lead in home runs allowed (16), even though he has started six fewer games. After the game, the Phillies optioned Morgan to triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Vince Velasquez threw five pitches Sunday afternoon before he was visited on the mound by Phillies manager Pete Mackanin and a member of the team's training staff. It seemed to be the same scene that unfolded on June 8 - Velasquez' last start at Citizens Bank Park - when the pitcher left with a sore biceps and headed to the disabled list. None of those five pitches eclipsed 90 mph as Velasquez struggled to build velocity. The mound visit appeared to be a harbinger of bad news. It instead proved to be an empty scare and a 7-2 win over Kansas City was just getting started.

SAN FRANCISCO - All along, Vince Velasquez predicted he would need just one minor-league rehab start, and there he was Friday with his Phillies teammates to throw a bullpen session at AT&T Park. "I knew what I had to do in Reading," Velasquez said, "and I did it. " So Velasquez, on the disabled list since June 9 with a strained right biceps, should start Monday in Arizona. The question, then, is how many more starts Velasquez will make in 2016. The Phillies will limit the innings of Velasquez, who threw just 88 1/3 innings in 2015.

READING - Wednesday night did not exactly begin the way Vince Velasquez had planned. The Phillies pitcher forgot to retrieve his toll ticket when entering the Pennsylvania Turnpike en route to Reading for a rehab start. He was required upon exiting to pay the maximum fee. Velasquez then allowed a home run to the first batter he faced at double-A Reading's FirstEnergy Stadium. It was a frustrating start, but Velasquez recovered. The righthander gave up just one more hit and threw 76 pitches in five innings of a 4-1 win against Akron.

BOSTON - The final image of Domonic Brown's season - if not his tenure with the Phillies - could turn out to be Wednesday night's gaffe that caused him to tumble into the Citi Field stands, turning a Mets single into an inside-the-park home run. The Phillies announced on Friday that Brown's crash caused him to suffer a concussion. He did not travel with the team for the weekend's three-game series at Fenway Park. He will have to pass concussion tests before rejoining the Phillies. It is the second concussion of Brown's career.

MILWAUKEE - Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin spent part of his 47 years in baseball as a scout, traversing the country writing reports on players like Chase Utley. He would sit behind home plate, just like the men who watched on Saturday night as Utley went 2 for 4 with a homer in a 4-2 loss to Milwaukee. What would Mackanin scribble in his scouting notebook? "I would say that I have high interest in him for whatever my purposes would be," Mackanin said. "At least since he [returned from the disabled list]

COULD CHASE UTLEY be gone before the Phillies return from their 10-day, three-city road trip on Sunday night? Has he already played in his last game at Citizens Bank Park in red pinstripes? The San Francisco Giants have made a trade offer to acquire Utley, according to reports from the San Francisco Chronicle and MLB.com. Both reported that Giants general manager Bobby Evans confirmed that an offer had been made to the Phillies. Utley cleared waivers on Tuesday and can be traded to any team - with his approval - and be eligible for that team's postseason roster if a deal is consummated before Sept.

PHOENIX - Major League Baseball's trade deadline arrived more than 10 days ago, but it doesn't mean major league teams are finished shopping for roster upgrades. The Phillies traded for a vital piece of their 2008 championship run in August: home-run hero Matt Stairs. Teams can still trade for players this month - and have them eligible for postseason play - if they consummate a deal before Sept. 1. The catch is those players must be moved through waivers - either in getting claimed off waivers, claimed and traded for, or passing through waivers and then traded.
