The news is coming fast and furious today. . .
Pat Burrell left batting practice today after experiencing discomfort in his lower back while taking a swing. He left the field, gingerly walking down the steps before disappearing into the clubhouse.
The official word from the Phillies is that he will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
I have no idea how serious it might be.
Burrell is one of the few Phillies who had success against Brewers righthander Yovani Gallardo last season. Burrell hit a solo home run off the young starter in the seventh inning of the Phillies' eventual loss.
Gallardo will start Game One on Wednesday.
I don't expect to hear anything else tonight, so stay tuned tomorrow.
