Roberto Hernandez is making a temporary move to the bullpen and that could set up some sensational pitching matchups when the Phillies play the Washington Nationals this weekend at Citizens Bank Park. With off days wrapped around the Phillies' two-game series with the New York Mets, manager Ryne Sandberg said Tuesday that Hernandez's scheduled turn Friday would be skipped. In that scenario, the Phillies will send Cliff Lee, A.J. Burnett, and Cole Hamels to the mound to face the Nationals.

Former Phillie Vance Worley allowed 11 hits and seven earned runs in Minnesota's 11-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night in Fort Myers, Fla. Worley's spring ERA rose to 13.50, and he didn't get through the third inning. He is battling for the Twins' final rotation spot.   Niese returns Jonathon Niese was relieved to be back at spring training with the New York Mets after receiving a relatively good medical report. The lefthander had an MRI exam of his pitching elbow in New York on Monday, and the scan revealed he had some inflammation but no damage.

Arizona Diamondbacks lefthander Patrick Corbin has a partially torn ligament in his left elbow that may require season-ending surgery. Corbin said Sunday that he has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament and was getting a second opinion with noted surgeon James Andrews before deciding whether to try to rehab or have surgery. Corbin had been designated the team's opening day starter against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Australia, but left Saturday's game against Cleveland in the seventh inning with forearm stiffness.

For most people, a trip to Las Vegas is an exciting time, but for the New York Mets' Greg Burke, shuttling to Sin City and back was an exercise in tedium and frustration. Burke, a 31-year-old graduate of Gloucester Catholic, was optioned six times during the season to the Mets' triple-A affiliate, the Las Vegas 51s in the Pacific Coast League. While Burke conceded that it was frustrating, the righthanded reliever also realized that being sent down to the minors six times also meant that he was called up to the majors six times.

Kyle Kendrick remains optimistic that he will be back good as new next season. But where he will be is an interesting question. The Phillies announced Friday that Kendrick would be shut down for the season. An MRI examination revealed Kendrick had rotator cuff tendinitis and some slight fraying. He sought a second opinion Thursday from New York Mets team physician David Alchek, who according to Kendrick agreed with the original diagnosis. Of note, Alchek recommended Kendrick be shut down because he didn't want him to do any damage to his elbow.

It may not be the World Series ring he really wants (and still has a kind of outside chance at getting), but the Washington Nationals found a way to give retiring manager Davey Johnson a nice going-away gift: pounding the heck out of those New York Mets. The Nats outhomered the Mets, 13-0, in a four-game sweep capped with a 7-2 win on Thursday afternoon - the 70-year-old Johnson's last game managing in New York. Johnson, who famously led the Mets to the 1986 World Series championship, is stepping down due to an aching back.

NEW YORK - Ryne Sandberg went to 10 All-Star Games and won nine Gold Gloves as a second baseman. But Sandberg made his first 128 major league starts at third base, and thus has some working knowledge of what it's like to be a young player at an infield position that can be unforgiving if you're unprepared. Sandberg has repeatedly raved about rookie Cody Asche. "He's the full package down there at third base," said the Hall of Fame player-turned-manager. Asche has dazzled with his glove for a month.
