Bothered by sore wrist, Polanco does not start
PHILADELPHIA -- The cut on Phillies third baseman Placido Polanco's left index finger remains a bother.

But it's not just his finger. It's his left wrist, too.

Polanco, who did not appear in an 8-3 loss on Thursday, got spiked on a play at third base Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park. Dodgers catcher Matt Treanor's spikes cut Polanco's finger, but the force of Treanor's slide also jammed Polanco's wrist.

Polanco said he is unable to swing the bat without discomfort.

"I feel good today," Polanco said. "We'll see."

Polanco said he might need a couple days, but he said will not need to be placed on the disabled list. Polanco's replacement, Ty Wigginton, committed two errors that led to a run in the fourth inning on Thursday.
