"No break or fracture," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said.
Kendrick entered the game hitting .343 with eight doubles, one triple, two home runs, 16 RBIs and an .853 OPS in 154 plate appearances, but he has also endured two stints on the disabled list. Kendrick missed more than a month because of a strained right abdomen, coming off the DL on May 29, and he spent three weeks on the DL in June with a strained left hamstring. He was activated from that stint on Friday.
"We've received calls on some of our other players, some more serious than others," Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said after trading reliever Pat Neshek to the Rockies for three Minor Leaguers. "Health will be a factor. [Daniel] Nava hit the DL, Howie was just hit in the hand. We'll have to see how he comes back from that. We'll have to see. We'll certainly be here. We'll be on the phones, and we'll be working as hard as we can to see what's out there."
Regardless of the severity of Kendrick's injury, the Phillies are not expected to receive much in return for him. The 34-year-old veteran will be a free agent after this season, making him a two-month rental to any postseason contender.
