CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The Phillies will play two on this St. Patrick's Day and Placido Polanco will not be in either in them.

Polanco hyperextended his left elbow Tuesday and was termed day-to-day by the Phillies. Today is not the day, apparently.

As for Brad Lidge, he played catch Wednesday without any reported problems. This morning he said he was feeling better but was unsure if he was throwing either today or Friday. He also was unsure if the throwing would take place off a mound.
