With the bullpen essentially set, all eyes are on Placido Polanco's elbow and its implications on the Phillies' Opening Day bench when the Phils play two of the final four Grapefruit League games today.
Here is your lineup at home against the Blue Jays: Shane Victorino CF, Luis Castillo 2B, Jimmy Rollins SS, Ryan Howard 1B, Ben Francisco RF, Delwyn Young LF, Josh Barfield 3B, Carlos Ruiz C, Kyle Kendrick P. Here's how it looks against the Tigers: Wilson Valdez 2B, Michael Martinez SS, Ross Gload 1B, Raul Ibanez LF, Cory Sullivan DH, Pete Orr 3B, John Mayberry RF, Brian Schneider C, Rich Thompson CF. Ryan Feierabend P.
What to watch: Orr and Barfield are neck-and-neck statistically, have been given equal opportunities and each start at third. Polanco played yesterday, but felt a twinge in his hyperextended elbow. He will be reevaluated today. Martinez will help his chances with a good showing at short. The needs of the team, with Polanco on the mend, are working against Young at this point. Charlie Manuel will manage the Tigers game.
