J.C Romero, who is on the disabled list with a strained left forearm, made a rehab appearance in Clearwater. However, he suffered a setback. Romero threw ten pitches before being shut down due to soreness.
Romero, the Phillies left-handed specialist, has missed a significant amount of time this season due to a 50 game suspension and trip to the disabled list. Romero has a 2.87 ERA in 15.2 innings this season.
On the other hand, Chad Durbin felt fine after throwing an inning in Clearwater. He could be activated any day now. Charlie Manuel said that Clay Condrey (oblique) is “still a ways off.”
