Victorino Said Hip Is Fine

Shane Victorino said his left hip is fine, but he isn’t in the lineup tonight against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium.

Victorino, who tweaked the hip rounding first base in the first inning last night against the Padres, took BP before the game and said he could be available to pinch-hit if needed. Charlie Manuel said later that Victorino is day-to-day, which is a good thing for him. Because the Phillies are carrying 13 pitchers, they have just four bats off the bench. If Victorino couldn’t play for a few days that would leave Manuel with just two bench moves (assuming he would keep Victorino and the backup catcher on the bench).

Brett Myers had successful hip surgery today in New York. He begins his rehab program Saturday and could begin a long toss program in about three months. That would be early September, which makes his chances of pitching again this season remote.

Forgot to mention yesterday that when Philly writers approached Jake Peavy in San Diego he said he was “tired and going to lay down.” The Phillies are interested in Peavy, but Peavy has a no-trade clause and is unlikely to accept a trade to Philly.

The Dodgers showed a picture of Geoff Jenkins on the scoreboard when Jayson Werth hit in the first inning. It wouldn’t be so bad except Werth played for the Dodgers.

I have been informed that Lauren Conrad is throwing out the first pitch Saturday afternoon. I’ve never watched an episode of Laguna Beach or The Hills (seriously, I haven’t), but I won’t mind seeing her at the yard.
