THE LOW POINT of that high-five for Jeff Baker is a trip to the 15-day disabled list. Texas placed the utilityman on the DL with a sprained right thumb yesterday, five days after an over-exuberant high-five from an unidentified teammate. "It's frustrating when something is out of your control and it's non-baseball-related," Baker said. "I couldn't really control what happened. Now I'm obviously hurt. But at the same time, it's kind of a delicate situation because it is a teammate and he feels terrible about it. It is what it is. " Neither Baker nor the Rangers have said who gave Baker the high-five on Thursday.

THE CALVARY should arrive by the end of the week. Catcher Carlos Ruiz could return to the lineup as soon as tonight, when he originally was scheduled to catch for Reading. Chase Utley is expected to begin a short rehab stint tonight or tomorrow and return from the disabled list after one or two minor league outings. At that point, the Phillies will have 1 month to show their bosses that they are capable of contending for a playoff berth. Starting Friday, when they welcome the Mets to Citizens Bank Park for a three-game series, the Phillies have 33 games before the non-waiver trade deadline on July 31. Twelve of those games will come against teams who entered yesterday in playoff position: three each against the Braves, Cardinals, Tigers and Pirates.

PRETTY MUCH everything about Stephen Strasburg's return from the disabled list went well except the result. Washington's ace righthander allowed one run and one hit in five innings, but the Nationals' offense did nothing to support him in yesterday's 2-0 loss to the Indians in Cleveland. "I felt really good and definitely could have gone for a few more innings, but they didn't want me to," he said. "It was good to be out there after 2 weeks. " Strasburg (3-6) was activated before the game and made his first start since May 31 when he strained a muscle in his back.

MINNEAPOLIS - The Phillies' walking wounded are beginning to shuffle back from the disabled list to the majors. John Lannan, the team's fifth starter, will return Monday to pitch against the team from which he demanded a trade last season. And starting catcher Carlos Ruiz is targeting a June 21 arrival. A depleted roster requires some sort of boost. Chase Utley could reappear next week, although his status is less certain. Ruiz (strained right hamstring) will begin a rehabilitation assignment Saturday with triple-A Lehigh Valley.

READING - It's not his decision to make, but the Phillies' John Lannan believes he's ready to return to the big leagues. The 28-year-old lefthander, who was placed on the disabled list in mid-April with a strained quadriceps tendon in his left knee, made his second rehab start Wednesday night. Lannan allowed two runs over seven innings for the double-A Reading Fightin Phils in a 6-0 loss to the visiting Bowie Baysox at FirstEnergy Stadium. "Every day you just look for something that got better from the day before," said Lannan, who threw four innings for single-A Clearwater on Friday.

By William C. Kashatus Most gifted athletes eventually fall victim to one of two ills: father time or complacency. The former reveals itself in repeated injuries and diminished skill, the latter in a refusal to make the adjustments needed to perform at a highly competitive level. Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, and Ryan Howard - the core players of the 2008 World Championship Phillies - have reached this painful denouement in their careers. It's time for the Phillies to part ways with them while they still have some value on the baseball market.

The Phillies started four middle infielders Thursday while the one whose presence they crave fielded ground balls hours before the game. That was progress for Chase Utley, who is moving forward in his recovery from a strained right oblique muscle. His most important test, swinging a bat, will not happen for some time. "It's still going to be a fairly slow process of trying to come back," Utley said. "As soon as I'm ready, I'll be out there. " Utley said he has no timetable for his return.

WASHINGTON - Chase Utley believed it was prudent to inform the Phillies moments after pain shot through his right side during batting practice Tuesday. Rather than play through it, an idea a twenty-something Utley might have embraced, Utley was confident in his caution. His diagnosis Thursday of a "very mild" oblique strain reaffirmed that decision. Utley will miss at least two weeks and Phillies officials are optimistic that is all. Utley, while describing his injury as the "best-case scenario," is taking a more conservative view.

Before Chase Utley took a swing during batting practice in Miami and pain shot through his rib cage, Charlie Manuel advised Freddy Galvis to rehearse patience. "He's going to be an everyday guy in the big leagues," Manuel said. "It's just a matter of time. " The Phillies manager said that one day before Utley was hurt. He did not want Galvis ascending to the lineup in this fashion. Utley was placed on the 15-day disabled list with what the team called "a very mild oblique injury.

OVER THE LAST 15 games, the Phillies' offense has not been putrid, and it has not been putrid while facing some pretty good teams. In helping win nine of the last 15 games, the lineup has scored four or more runs in seven games (an accomplishment, believe it or not), while posting a respectable .272/.327/.407 line. Chase Utley's numbers during that stretch: a .295 batting average, .404 on-base percentage, .432 slugging percentage, five runs and four RBI. Starting tonight against the Nationals, those numbers will no longer be at the Phillies' disposal.
