Brad Lidge rocked in Single-A rehab start

Lidge is trying to make his way back from knee and elbow issues, but was dominated by a batch of low-level minor leaguers in what can only be described as a setback.  The Phillies are unlikely to activate him until he shows that he can handle himself on a minor league mound, and they surely won’t trust him with ninth-inning duties until he strings together a run of clean rehab innings.

For now, Ryan Madson will continue to close games in Philadelphia.  He has one save thus far with a 3.86 ERA and 3/0 K/BB ratio in 2 1/3 innings of play.
