Some updates on a few players. Darin Ruf has hit the DL with wrist and knee issues after slamming into the wall last night in a Triple-A game. But nothing is broken, which is good. Cliff Lee still has not resumed baseball activities. It has been 18 days since he has pitched and the closer it gets to the trade deadline without him pitching, the less and less the Phillies will receive if they attempt to deal him.
Lineup: Rollins SS / Utley 2B / Byrd RF / Howard 1B / Ruiz C / Brown LF / Brignac 3B / Revere CF / Burnett P
