BRAD LIDGE WON’T BE READY FOR OPENING DAY
Mon, 28 Mar 2011 03:35 PM EDT

The unlucky injury-plagued spring for the Philadelphia Phillies received a big hit on Friday when medical staff announced that closer Brad Lidge won’t be up for for Opening Day. His absence is due to the soreness in the back of his shoulder that he has been suffering.

Lidge claimed that he is feeling quite optimistic and hopes that it will be only a couple of weeks. Team doctors said that they will rest Lidge’s shoulder for a week, then play catch for another week, then do a couple of bullpens and see how he’s feeling. Odds.

The Phillies’ closer stepped to the diamond on Thursday and pitched against the Minnesota Twins, but unfortunately felt pain deep in the back of his shoulder after the game. He is expected to see a doctor in Clearwater this weekend, then have an MRI the following week in Philadelphia after the club returns home from spring training Monday.

Brad Lidge has never suffered from shoulder issues in his whole MLB career. This will concern the Phillies and will be frustrating to Lidge because he was feeling A-Ok so good when entering training camp. Brad also had a mild case of biceps tendinitis this spring, but affirmed that the issue is no longer bothering him. Scores.

According to the Phillies’ General Manager they don’t think it’s that serious, but they are going to shut him down for a while. Although this isn’t long-term issue, it still could be, and they don’t wanna take any risks. With Lidge hurt, the role likely would go to Ryan Madson or Jose Contreras.

Lidge’s injury is one of several this spring for the Phillies. Right fielder Domonic Brown broke his hand and probably won’t be back until sometime in May. Although there is no timetable set for his return yet. Second baseman Chase Utley likely will start the season on the disabled list, and could be out until May, if not longer. Las Vegas odds.
