ATLANTA - The prize of the pitching market this July, David Price, plays for a team enjoying its best run of the season. There are no guarantees that Tampa Bay will deal Price, and that steers all focus toward Cliff Lee. He will pitch Monday for the first time in two months. More than a dozen scouts are expected at Citizens Bank Park to evaluate how Lee has handled a strained left elbow. Lee will start two games before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. His performances will dictate whether that is enough to entice a contender to offer a suitable package.

The Phillies made three roster moves before Monday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the San Francisco Giants. The most difficult move was designating outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. for assignment. Just last month, Gwynn's father, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, died. "It was tough with Tony with everything he's gone through," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said before the game. "He's a very professional guy, a terrific teammate, so it's tough. " Sandberg said that Gwynn could still remain with the organization.

READING - When you look at the Phillies' 40-man roster, there are some glaring holes. With five of the 40 on the disabled list, the Phillies are running thin. They have five outfielders on the major league roster, three of whom are not producing at a high level and one who's just arrived. At the minor league level, Darrun Ruf, who is with Triple A Lehigh Valley, has battled injuries all season, but has potential to be an everyday player. Aaron Altherr is the prized jewel of Double A Reading, and has seen time with the big-league club this year.

MILWAUKEE - Cliff Lee threw 59 pitches without incident Wednesday night in Tampa, Fla., and that was one of the more positive developments in seven weeks for the prized Phillies starter with the strained left elbow. He allowed three runs in four innings for single-A Clearwater. Lee will pitch there again Monday in what could be the final precursor to his return. His first minor-league rehab outing last Sunday was shortened by rain. This one had a better conclusion. He cruised through the first three innings on 32 pitches with six groundouts and two strikeouts.

PITTSBURGH - A.J. Burnett said it was an emotional experience Sunday when he took the mound at PNC Park for the first time since he left the Pirates and signed with the Phillies as a free agent in February. Burnett spent just two years in Pittsburgh, but he made a favorable impression. He went 10-11 with the Pirates last season as they earned their first postseason berth since 1992. Before he took the mound Sunday in the first inning of a 6-2 loss, there was a video tribute to Burnett and the crowd gave him an extended ovation.

Catcher Carlos Ruiz was placed on the seven-day disabled list Friday night with concussion symptoms after being hit on the helmet by a pitch from Miami's A.J. Ramos in the 11th inning Thursday. Ruiz remained in the game during the Phillies' 14-inning win over the Marlins, but he was not in manager Ryne Sandberg's starting lineup Friday. Sandberg said Ruiz's condition was being monitored earlier in the day, but indicated that the catcher was just getting a day off following a 4-hour, 41-minute game.

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.
