Wait and See on Gload

Quick update on Ross Gload, who left the Phils' 2-0 win over the Dodgers in the seventh inning after pulling a groin.

The injury looked bad, but manager Charlie Manuel expressed some hope last night (then again, Manuel is an unabashed optimist when it comes to these sorts of things).

"They said it's not quite as bad as they thought it might be (at first)," Manuel said.

If Gload goes to the DL, he'll be the 16th player to do so this season.

The Phillies are already down one bench player, having promoted Antonio Bastardo as an extra relief arm.

The Phillies will know more on Thursday after Gload is examined by team medical staff.
