Medical update on Jim Thome
tickets for any Major League Baseball game
Phillies first baseman Jim Thome's fractured middle right finger was examined in Philadelphia this morning by hand specialist Dr. Randall Culp of Jefferson Hospital.

Culp reported to team physician Dr. Michael Ciccotti that Thome was doing very well and X-rays taken today looked great.

Thome has been given clearance to play, but will be wearing a special splint on his finger through the next two weeks. He will be able to hit and throw with the splint, but will be limited according to his comfort level.

He suffered the non-displaced fracture of the tip of the finger during fielding drills in Clearwater on March 5.

Thome is returning to Clearwater this afternoon and will be examined again by Dr. Culp in Philadelphia prior to the exhibition series with the Cleveland Indians at Citizens Bank Park.
