Phillies Injury Updates: Victorino, Contreras, Oswalt, Ultey, Lidge

Matt Gelb from the Philadelphia Inquirer was in with Ruben Amaro Jr. this morning and has updates on the following injuries:

  • Shane Victorino is sore, but may avoid the disabled list.
  • Jose Contreras should be starting a rehab assignment this Wednesday in triple-A Lehigh, but no news on whether he'll be closing upon his return.
  • Roy Oswalt has thrown a bullpen session and should start Tuesday at the Cardinals, and Amaro is not concerned about a drop in velocity.
  • Chase Utley may see a full nine innings today in single-A Bradenton.
  • Brad Lidge is making progress and may be able to throw off the mound when the Phillies get home.
