Brad Lidge, unavailable in Monday’s win over the Nationals, has inflammation in his knee and is day-to-day, according to manager Charlie Manuel.
More, from Scott Lauber:
Our man, Geoff Mosher, was in the Phillies’ clubhouse tonight when Lidge admitted he got a cortisone shot last week. If Lidge is having knee trouble, that would explain his mechanical problems and his flawed control. Few saves have been easy for Lidge lately. On Saturday night, he loaded the bases before white-knuckling his way to a 34-pitch save.
