Polanco slated to play full game in rehab outing
PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies third baseman Placido Polanco went 0-for-2 with a walk in a rehab appearance Thursday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

He is scheduled to play nine innings Friday. He could be back in the Phillies lineup before the end of the weekend.

Polanco has been on the disabled list since July 4 because of lower back inflammation. Whenever he returns, the Phillies will need to make a roster move to put him back on the 25-man roster. Manuel said he believes the Phillies need to keep their reserve infielders -- Michael Martinez and Wilson Valdez -- because "when I look at our infield situation, it seems like we always have somebody hurt. More than likely we'll keep the insurance around."
