ST. LOUIS - Reid Brignac's future is uncertain, and not just because he will spend the next 15 days, and maybe more, on the disabled list with a high ankle sprain that he suffered while sliding into first base on Thursday night. The departure of the 28-year-old infielder from the active roster was coupled with the return of Cody Asche, who figures to garner the vast majority of starts at third base for the rest of the season. But if the Phillies do somehow end up clawing their way back into contention - they entered yesterday five games under .500 but only four games behind the Nationals in the NL East - they will owe some thanks to Brignac.

ST. LOUIS - Phillies third baseman Reid Brignac sprained his left ankle and was forced to leave Thursday's game when he and Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller slid into first base at the same time. Brignac led off the fifth inning with a sharp grounder down the first-base line that seemed ticketed for the right-field corner. But first baseman Matt Adams made a diving stab, and his underhanded throw to Miller forced the pitcher to slide. The Phillies said Brignac will be reevaluated Friday morning.

ATLANTA - One of two things happened at Turner Field over the last 3 days. Either the Phillies swept a team that began the series in first place, or the Braves were swept by a last-place team. In other words, we learned something about someone, but who was it? One can make an argument it was the Braves who revealed something about themselves: Namely, that after a crushing litany of injuries that continued Tuesday when reliever David Carpenter hit the disabled list, they are not a playoff-caliber team.

ATLANTA - You may have read this before. When Ryan Howard is hitting for power, the Phillies have a competent offense. When he isn't, they don't. So when you search for the secret to the 21 runs the Phillies scored in their sweep over the Braves, look no further than the big man in the middle. On Monday and Tuesday, he hit home runs. Yesterday, in a 10-5 win, he went 3-for-5 with a double, a walk, and two RBI. It looked like he was seeing the ball real well. He made the Atlanta pitchers throw strikes.

UPDATE [10:15 a.m.] The Phillies have placed Jeff Manship on the 15-day DL . FROM EARLIER -- Jeff Manship was in the midst of pitching one of the best games of his big-league career Saturday. He had already provided the Phillies with four perfect innings and struck out six in a game that had dragged into the 13th inning. Now, he had a chance to deliver a game-winning hit because manager Ryne Sandberg did not want to use the remainder of his bullpen. Manship hit a ball softly enough that he had a chance to beat it out for an infield single, which would have allowed Ryan Howard to score the winning run. Instead, he felt his right quadriceps pull as he ran down the first-base line.

LOS ANGELES - In one corner of the new, visiting clubhouse at Dodger Stadium, a sushi chef laid out his spread for hungry ballplayers. On the other side of the room, a few players dug into one of the boxes of In-N-Out burgers. Cody Asche wasn't on either side. Asche was in the indoor hitting cage, working on his craft, more than 2 hours before the Phillies took the field for pregame batting practice. "When you're not playing, you just want to stay fresh," Asche said. "So I'm just continuing to do my routine, what works for me. What's worked for me my whole career.

Twice, A.J. Burnett felt pain from his groin Sunday morning while he threw a bullpen session. It did not linger. The 37-year-old righthander said everything went "better than expected. " Still, he harbors fears of a larger problem, and that is why Burnett will see a doctor Monday. His Wednesday start against Atlanta is still in question. "I feel good," Burnett said, "but I want my mind to be 100 percent. " The Phillies were concerned enough to limit David Buchanan's start Sunday at triple-A Lehigh Valley to 12 pitches in one inning.

HELP COULD soon be on the way for the Phillies' beleaguered bullpen. Veteran setup man Mike Adams is targeting a Monday return, contingent upon a successful outing at Triple A Lehigh Valley today. The Phillies' bullpen entered yesterday with a 5.40 ERA, ranked second-worst in the National League. Phillies relievers were averaging only 7.09 strikeouts per nine innings, second-lowest in the NL (Washington and Atlanta rank first and second at 12.71 and 11.86). Adams, 35, was one of baseball's best setup men from 2008-12, prompting the Phillies to sign him to a 2-year, $12 million deal last offseason.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Darin Ruf appeared to be a favorite to not only be on his first major league Opening Day roster on March 31, but to also be in the lineup as a designated hitter when the Phillies open the season in Arlington against the Rangers. But Ruf will not be able to do either of those things after an MRI on his rib cage yesterday. He is likely to miss the entire first month of the season. Ruf was diagnosed with a Grade 1/2 left oblique strain and is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks, the Phillies announced after yesterday's exhibition game against Boston.
