Shane Victorino's visit to hand specialist Randall Culp resulted in the diagnosis of a Grade 1 sprain of his right thumb, leading to the possibility that that the center fielder will finish out the first half on the disabled list.

Victorino will not play tomorrow in the Phillies' series-finale against the Marlins, and the Phillies are off on Thursday. At that point, the team will make a decision on Victorino's status for their three-game series against the Braves at Citizens Bank Park this weekend. If he cannot play, he will likely go on the disabled list, which would sideline him until Tues., July 19, when the Phillies are in Chicago to play the Cubs.
