Condrey could be activated as soon as Sunday

Well, the Phillies finally have some good news regarding their injury-depleted bullpen. Condrey, who has not pitched since July 22 after straining his oblique, was scheduled to pitch in a playoff game for Double-A Reading today. But because that game was rained out, the Phillies are hopeful that he will pitch for them tomorrow, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said.

Well, the Phillies finally have some good news regarding their injury-depleted bullpen. Condrey, who has not pitched since July 22 after straining his oblique, was scheduled to pitch in a playoff game for Double-A Reading today. But because that game was rained out, the Phillies are hopeful that he will pitch for them tomorrow, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said.

Condrey had made just three appearances since June 18, when he strained the oblique for the first time and missed a month. He returned to pitch three games in late July, before re-aggravating the injury and going back on the DL.

Condrey was one of the team's most reliable relievers for the first two-and-a-half months of the season. Overall, he is 6-2 with a 3.41 ERA, although that number is skewed by his final two games before his first DL stint, when he allowed six earned runs while recording just one out.

Amaro said that if Condrey pitches tomorrow and shows no ill-effects, he could be activated in time to pitch in Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets.

Also, righthander Andrew Carpenter has been recalled to help pitch in this weekend.
