Polanco Could Play As Early As Friday
In other words, Polanco feels fine.
Polanco sprained his right knee stumbling on the pitcher’s mound Monday at McKechnie Field in Bradenton. Polanco said this morning “it’s still a little bit sore, but it’s the best case. I was pretty worried yesterday.”
Polanco, who said he received no further testing on his knee, hit off the tee this morning. He also rode the exercise bike. He said tomorrow should be another step forward.
“Hopefully I’ll be playing pretty soon,” he said. “The day off (Thursday) will help.”
Target date to return?
“Yesterday,” he joked.
But Friday would be the earliest we would see him in the lineup.
Thanks to Glen and Anthony on WIP, who just had me on before the game. Had fun talking about the book and the Phillies.
