"We'll see how he goes," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "The trainer and doctor says he can play. We'll see."
Frandsen, called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on July 27, made two pinch-hitting appearances since starting on Sept. 4. From July 29 to Sept. 4, Frandsen started 33 of the Phillies' 34 games, hitting .336.
Manuel said Frandsen could play a couple of days in a row but may be replaced defensively late in games until he's 100 percent healthy.
Michael Martinez started at third base in Frandsen's absence and hit .273 (6-for-22) in seven starts.
