Quick update on center fielder Shane Victorino, who is trying to shake some soreness in his right shoulder. Manager Charlie Manuel said today that Victorino will not play in the Phillies' exhibition opener against Florida State tomorrow night. As we said yesterday, the injury is not considered serious. Victorino took swings in the batting cage and played catch at 120 feet today. But the Phillies want to make sure the soreness -- which Manuel labelled "typical" of spring training -- disappears.
J.A. Happ will start tomorrow night against the Seminoles.
Roy Hallady gets the call on Thursday against C.C. Sabathia and the Yankees.
