More bad news for the Phils
Their already fragile bullpen will start the season without closer Brad Lidge, who’s headed to the 15-day DL with shoulder pain.
Lidge says he’ll get an MRI when he gets back to Philadelphia and doesn’t know when he will return. Lidge was shaken up after allowing two hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning against the Twins’ minor leaguers. “I’m a little concerned because I haven’t had shoulder problems in the past,” Lidge said.
