David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News reports the Phillies could have right-handed starter Joe Blanton and left-handed setup man J.C. Romero back by May 1.

Blanton, on the disabled list since late March with an oblique strain, pitched two scoreless innings in a rehab start for Class A Lakewood on Tuesday.

Romero, who is recovering from offseason elbow surgery, pitched a second consecutive day for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
