Before Monday's game against the New York Mets, Phillies relievers Justin De Fratus and Jake Diekman sat beside each other at their lockers. Diekman stared intently at his laptop while De Fratus listened to music. The pair had to cherish the time to relax; the bullpen hadn't had much time do that over the last four days. The team's bullpen racked up 25 innings in the series, the result of three extra-inning games. The relievers surrendered nine runs in those innings but just three before they allowed six in Monday's 11-2 loss.

Phillies lefthander Cole Hamels needed 125 pitches to get through seven innings in Sunday's 11-inning, 4-3 loss to the New York Mets, but manager Ryne Sandberg wasn't concerned with the high total. It was the second time in eight starts that Hamels has thrown at least that many pitches, although 12 of those pitches Sunday came on three intentional walks. Hamels threw a career-high 133 pitches in a 5-4 loss to the Mets on May 11. "Cole feels great and strong and feels good," Sandberg said before Monday's game with the Mets at Citizens Bank Park.

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.

When Thursday's third inning ended, Chase Utley was so fooled by a Zack Wheeler curveball, he lost control of his bat in the direction of the 23-year-old New York Mets pitcher. Some fans gasped. Wheeler dodged the wooden missile. The teams changed sides, and a 4-1 Mets victory sputtered to an unsurprising conclusion. The Phillies generated late-night excitement Wednesday at Citizens Bank Park with a comeback win capped by Ryan Howard's mammoth three-run homer. But this is an inconsistent team, and one day does not often carry into the next.

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.

Overall, he entered Friday batting .252 with 6 home runs, 38 RBIs, and 60 runs scored.

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.
