Manzella continues to feel tightness

Brad Mills is backing off projections that Manzella could be back as early as tomorrow, as he's having trouble with lateral movement.

“We're concerned about Tommy's lateral movement. He still feels it a little bit when going side to side.”

And within that section we also see that, unbelievably (or completely believably), J.R. Towles has experienced tightness in his hamstring, as well.


Fallas tells us that Wandy will pitch on short rest on Wednesday to go be with his wife as she is expected to give birth. Fallas notes that, with Oswalt nursing his sore hamstring, it will set Wandy up to pitch Opening Day on normal rest.
