Phillies likely without Polanco this weekend

BALTIMORE -- Placido Polanco's health is worse than initially thought.

He said he received a cortisone injection into his left wrist Friday morning after suffering a "small tear" in a tendon Tuesday, when his wrist got jammed on a play at third base.

"I'll need a couple days," Polanco said.

Polanco also has a cut on his left index finger, which he finally received stitches for. It is unlikely Polanco will see the field this weekend in Baltimore, so the earliest he could play is Tuesday in Minnesota.
