Placido Polanco Has MRI; Status Unknown

PHILADELPHIA — Phillies third baseman Placido Polanco will not be in tonight’s lineup for the Phillies for the second straight game and third time in four games.

Polanco had an MRI on his lower back today and his status is unknown at this point.

Matt Gelb writes that this could be “problematic” for the Phillies, who may want to trade the 36-year-old third baseman to a contending team. Baltimore was reportedly interested in Polanco but if he has back issues it may kill his trade value.
