Friday, May 6, 2011, 6:46 PM
After experiencing some back discomfort during his start against the Marlins on April 15 at Citizens Bank Park, Roy Oswalt said he didn’t think there was anything to worry about.

Friday, May 6, 2011, 3:59 PM
Ruben Amaro Jr. dropped broad hints before Friday night’s game that Roy Oswalt was headed for the disabled list after being scratched from his scheduled start against the Braves.

An uncertain future for Vance Worley

Wednesday, May 4, 2011, 10:56 PM
OK, we've finally found a down side to having a rotation that features four All-Stars. . . A guy like Vance Worley probably isn't going to be able to stick on the active roster, despite impressive performances in all four of his big league starts to date. Worley could theoretically stick around for... Read more

Next Tuesday's Marlins-Phils Game > Dancing with the Stars

Wednesday, May 4, 2011, 3:18 PM
UPDATED: 3:30 p.m. The Phillies have optioned righthander David Herndon to Triple A Lehigh Valley to make room for lefty J.C. Romero, who was activated from the disabled list.

A statistical look at Manuel's line-up change

Tuesday, May 3, 2011, 6:48 PM
People who study this stuff contend that the order of a baseball team's line-up plays a negligible role in the eventual outcome of a game. So it's hard to greet Charlie Manuel's decision to return Jimmy Rollins to the leadoff spot with anything more than a slight raise of the eyebrow. Interesting,... Read more

For the same cost as a stale cylinder of excess animal parts on Dollar Dog Night, you can pick up today's copy of the Daily News and get all of your Phillies minor league coverage in one disposable, easy-to-handle, restroom-ready package. If it doesn't feel the same without an eight-dollar beer, go... Read more

. . .not that it should come as a surprise. Among the things we've learned about the Phillies prospect is that he has a pretty good feel for how to interact with the press. So when a handful of reporters caught up with him today at Coca-Cola Park, he insisted that he was at peace with his presence... Read more

A generation-defining night?

Monday, May 2, 2011, 2:30 PM
I have a confession to make: At no other point in my professional career have I been less interested in a game than I was last night after another reporter turned to me and said, "Obama's supposed to address the nation at 10:30 p.m." And only now am I really starting to make some sense of it. One of... Read more

Here's how the altered rotation looks. . .

Sunday, May 1, 2011, 5:51 PM
Roy Oswalt, currently helping with tornado clean-up at home in Mississippi, won't return to the Phillies until Thursday, meaning he will miss his scheduled start against the Nationals on Tuesday.
