Maton (finger) has gone 2-for-13 with a double, four walks and three runs in his four games with Triple-A Lehigh Valley since being optioned by the Phillies.

Before he was dropped from Philadelphia's active roster Thursday, Maton hadn't seen any action for the club since last weekend while he managed a finger injury. The fact that the Phillies chose to option him rather than placing him on the injured list implied the finger issue was only a minor concern, and his immediately entry into to the Triple-A lineup seemingly confirms as much.
