GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said the Phillies are not opposed to giving Giles a look in their pen soon, CBS Philadelphia reports. "If he continues to locate his fastball and throw strikes consistently and we feel like he’s a guy that can help us, then we’ll bring him," Amaro said. "But again, we want to make sure that he’s able to handle some of the ups and downs of being at a little bit of a higher level."
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Revere (ribs) is healthy enough to play in the outfield, but manager Ryne Sandberg has been going with the hot hand by starting Tony Gwynn Jr. in center field the last three games, the Phillies' official site reports.
Burnett threw a bullpen session Sunday and felt a pull in his groin muscle twice while throwing out of the stretch, the Phillies' official site reports. "It went away right after that," Burnett said. "I'm feeling good enough to throw."
Burnett (groin) is likely to be replaced by David Buchanan in his next scheduled start Wednesday, as Buchanan was removed from Sunday's start in Triple-A after just one inning, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The Phillies want Lincoln to work on his two-seam fastball at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, CSNPhilly.com reports. “He started working on it in spring training, but he didn’t have the confidence in the pitch to feature it in big-league camp because he was trying to win a job,” manager Ryne Sandberg said.
