Pregame Notes 5/11

Not a whole lot of pregame notes heading into tonight’s rubber match between the Phillies and Marlins. The Phils are tossing their left-handed star free agent Cliff Lee (2-3, 3.69) out against Ricky Nolasco (3-0, 3.23) for the Fish.

And with that, some interesting news came out of the injury watch today as well as some stats to make you sick.

-Matt Gelb decided to scare the crap out of us today with some horrifying stats:

Holy Bejesus!

-Speaking of Chooch, he went 1-for-5 with a sacrifice fly today in extended Spring Training play.

-Joe Blanton threw a bull pen session today and said it went well. He said his elbow felt fine though it is still a little “cranky,” He will be able to start on Saturday.

-UTLEY WATCH: Utley took the day off today but will be in the line up for Clearwater tomorrow. Joining him in the line up will be Ruiz and Roy Oswalt (tweeted the other day).

-Lehigh Valley 2B Kevin Frandsen was suspended for 50 games for testing positive for ritalinic acid. Good job, kid.
