An MRI exam on Phillies closer Brad Lidge’s surgically repaired elbow revealed no structural damage, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Instead, Lidge is listed as day-to-day with inflammation in the lining of his elbow joint. He had experienced elbow stiffness earlier this week and was sent back to Philadelphia to have it examined.
Lidge, who began the season on the disabled list, has one save and a 2.70 ERA in four appearances with the Phillies this season.
With Lidge and Ryan Madson (toe surgery) both unavailable this week, Jose Contreras has been handling the save chances for Philadelphia.
