An update on injured Phillies third baseman Pedro Feliz.
I know you're looking for a trade update, but so far there is none to report. But there is an update on Pedro Feliz, who is on the 15-day DL with lower back inflammation.
Feliz had a MRI on his back yesterday and was examined by team physician Michael Ciccotti. Back specialist Todd Albert at the Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital then examined Feliz today, when he had an epidural injection. Feliz has a mild disc bulge in his back. He will not take part in any baseball-related activities until sometime next week.
Feliz can be activated from the DL on Aug. 9 against Pittsburgh, if he's ready.
