Worth noting

• Second baseman Freddy Galvis, who might have a pars fracture in his back, is in New York for a second opinion. Results are expected later this week.

• This is the first time the Phillies have been to Target Field. Manager Charlie Manuel's first impressions? "I like hitting in Citizens Bank Park better," he said, referring to Target Field's pitcher-friendly reputation. "It's nice, though. This is real nice. I walked around yesterday. I like where it sits. I like downtown. Real good."

• Former Phillies pinch-hitter Matt Stairs had his home in Maine burglarized over the weekend. He told CBC News many prized baseball possessions were stolen, but not his 2008 World Series championship ring. He had that with him while he was out of town.
