X-rays on Placido Polanco’s finger come back negative

The Phillies received a bit of good news Sunday morning when, according to Bob Brookover of the Philadelphia Inquirer, X-rays turned up negative on the left ring finger of infielder Placido Polanco.

Polanco jammed the finger Saturday in a Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays while diving back to first base on a pickoff attempt. He was removed from the batting order and sent straight to the trainer’s table for monitoring. But all is well.

Polanco is considered day-to-day and should be cleared to return to action at some point early this week. The 36-year-old third baseman is 9-for-17 (.529) with three RBI, two runs scored and one stolen base through his first six spring games.
