PITTSBURGH -- Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins fouled a ball off his knee in the first inning of Saturday night's game against the Pirates and was removed in the third inning with a right patella contusion. He was listed as day to day but said it might be a "couple days" before he could play.
Leading off the game, Rollins fouled a Charlie Morton pitch off his knee and had to have the trainer look at it before resuming the at-bat.
Rollins wound up hitting a double and eventually scored the Phillies' first run of the game.
Rollins continued to experience discomfort and was finally removed by manager Charlie Manuel after the top of the third. He was replaced by Wilson Valdez.
After the game, the Phillies listed Rollins, who was limping noticeably, as day to day.
"It will be a couple days in my mind," Rollins said. "I don't think it will be a DL thing, not at this moment."
Mayberry returns after one day away
PITTSBURGH -- John Mayberry Jr's stay with Triple-A Lehigh Valley didn't last very long. After being optioned to Triple-A on Friday, Mayberry was back in the Phillies' clubhouse on Saturday.
Mayberry was recalled when first baseman/outfielder Ross Gload was placed on the paternity-leave list on Saturday.
"I've gotten a few miles under my belt," Mayberry quipped.
Mayberry played in Lehigh Valley's 5-1 win at Charlotte on Friday night, going 1-for-4 with a single.
"Obviously, it was disappointing to go back down," Mayberry said. "But I went back down and got some good at-bats. It was definitely a pleasant surprise this morning when I got the call that I was coming back."
Schneider suffers setback in rehab
PITTSBURGH -- Phillies catcher Brian Schneider, who went on the 15-day disabled list on May 12 with a left hamstring strain, has suffered a setback in his rehab process.
"[Schneider] had a little bit of a setback a week or so ago," Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock reported. "He had to sort of start the process over again; hopefully, he'll be back sooner rather than later. He's not sedentary; he's doing some things. He's hitting off a tee and that sort of thing, but the one time he tried to run and ran the bases is when he had the setback. I don't think he's progressed back to that point yet."
On May 11, Schneider left the Phillies' 5-3 win over the Marlins in the fifth inning when he strained his left hamstring running the bases.
Lidge experiences stiffness in rehabbing shoulder
PITTSBURGH -- Phillies right-hander Brad Lidge went on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 25, on March 30 with a right posterior rotator cuff strain and was transferred to the 60-day DL on April 29.
Lidge, who began a throwing program on April 30 and pitched in an extended spring training game on May 28, was hoping to return in June, but he has experienced some difficulty of late.
Lidge had not thrown for the past few days, due to stiffness in the same shoulder.
"Lidge was supposed to throw [on Saturday]," Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock stated. "He was not supposed to throw on the mound, just some throwing on flat ground."
Phillies recall Herndon, send Zagurski down
PITTSBURGH -- The Phillies made a late roster move following Saturday night's game, sending lefty reliever Mike Zagurski to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and recalling right-hander David Herndon.
In four appearances with the Phils, Zagurski was 0-0 with a 5.40 ERA.
Herndon was with the Phillies earlier this season, appearing in 14 games with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 6.32. He was optioned to Triple-A on May 26.
At Lehigh Valley, Herndon appeared in eight games, posting a 2-0 record with an ERA of 2.45.
Friday night marked the 32nd game this season in which a Phillies starting pitcher had allowed two runs or fewer. The Phils are 23-9 in those games and among all MLB teams, only three other staffs have had more: Oakland (23-13), Atlanta (25-10) and Seattle (23-10).
The Phillies have posted an MLB-best 94.7 save percentage this season (18 saves in 19 opportunities).
