Polanco, Blanton and Heilman Updates
The Phillies resume play tomorrow night against the Padres, but a few things happened today:
- They said Placido Polanco received injections in his back. They will see how he responds over the next couple days. He has been on the DL since July 4.
- Joe Blanton is headed to Philadelphia to have his right elbow evaluated by team physician Michael Ciccotti.
- The Phillies agreed to terms on a Minor League deal with right-hander Aaron Heilman. He will report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
