Direct from the horses' mouth:
"On another note, I have been pain free for about a week and hope to be throwing again soon. I also received my new Oakley prescription glasses for when I’m back on the mound. Should be pretty intimidating. haha. "
Great news on Phil. If he can start throwing now, and get in some rehab games by the end of the month-He should be on track for rejoining the rotation after the all-star break. He should be a nice boost to the rotation, and it will be interesting to see his new "Wild Thing" look. If nothing else, the kid needs to get some innings!
