Lefty reliever J.C. Romero, who was activated from the disabled list on Monday (he had been on it since July 23 with a strained left forearm), pitched one inning against Houston on Tuesday, gave up two hits in his first appearance since July 19 vs. Florida.

He has been shut down for the rest of the year after seeking a second medical opinion.

Said manager Charlie Manuel: “I’ve kind of known it all along [that Romero eventually would be shut down]. He’s been hurt. It seems like he always gets set back, set back whenever he pitches or tries to pitch.

“I knew there was going to come a day when it was one way or the other. I guess we got the other.”

Righty reliever Chan Ho Park, whose last appearance was Sept. 16 vs. Washington (he had been on the DL with a strained right hamstring), almost certainly will miss the first round of the playoffs. He injured his arm during an instructional league in Florida on Thursday.

“Chan Ho, I don’t think, is going to make this first round — unless we get a miracle,” Manuel said.
 

Said Park: “I’m still waiting for the doctor [Phillies team physician Michael Ciccotti]. I did an MRI in the morning today [Friday] It’s too bad. I had damn good stuff. I felt so good, my arm felt really strong.”
