Lidge Gets MRI, No Structural Damage, Day-to-Day
Brad Lidge is not headed to the DL, at least for now.
Phillies physician Michael Ciccotti examined him today at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. Lidge, who has experienced stiffness in his right elbow since he pitched Sunday, had a gadolinium MRI. The Phillies said it revealed no loose bodies and no structural damage. They also said his flexor pronator surgery, which he had in November, is healing properly.
The MRI revealed inflammation in the lining of his elbow joint.
They said he is day-to-day.
Lidge, 33, is 0-0, 2.70 ERA with one save in four relief appearances this season.
