Victorino’s Thumb Problem
Shane Victorino is headed to Philadelphia to see hand specialist Randall Culp.
He is expected to rejoin the team tomorrow in Florida.
Victorino jammed his right thumb when taking a bad fall in center field Sunday in Toronto. Victorino had the thumb in a sleeve yesterday. He said he thought it would be OK, but Charlie Manuel said after last night’s game Victorino would not be able to play tonight.
The Phillies recalled John Mayberry Jr. Expect to see him in center field tonight. The Phillies optioned Vance Worley following last night’s game, so the Phillies had an open spot on the roster.
More to come later today at the ballpark …
