The Phils lost Michael Martinez as his right foot was broken by a Jim Johnson pitch. There is no timetable for his return. On Monday, Chase Utley left Clearwater to meet with an unamed specialist to check out what is wrong with his knees. The Phils, as of yet, have no idea how this will effect his return to the club. The Phils have also sent five players down to their minor league camp: they’d optioned right handers Phillippe Aumont and Michael Schwimer, while reassigning left handers David Purcey and Jeremy Horst and infielder Kevin Frandsen.

The next Phils (9-9) game will be this afternoon with the Blue Jays (14-4) at Dunedin. The game is to start at 1:05 pm EDT.
