According to a breaking report in the Daily News, it remains likely that Phillies right-hander Freddy Garcia will start the season on the disabled list, but the team was encouraged by today’s exam.
Garcia was forced from last night’s game with tightness in his right bicep, but reportedly demonstrated good strength in the arm, according to Assistant GM Ruben Amaro Jr. In addition, Carlos Ruiz received positive news on his sore right shoulder. The team will rest the catcher for the next few days. Full report [here]
