Polanco was to alternate play with infielder Kevin Frandsen upon his return, but last night Polanco sat out his second game in a row. Today will be the third and a disabled list stint is possible. Nate Schierholtz is expected to re-join the team on Tuesday, so he could take Polanco's spot should a disabled list stint take place.
Like fellow teammate Brian Schneider, this could be the end of Placido Polanco in a Phillies uniform.
As our Mike Frohwirth astutely points out, Kevin Frandsen may have to be the Phillies' postseason third baseman.
