A member of the team who knows he's heading to a rehab assignment this week is pitcher Roy Oswalt(notes), who has been on the DL since June 24. He will head to the team's Triple-A affiliate, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, to start Wednesday's game against the Pawtucket Red Sox, the site reports. Oswalt had a second successful session in the bullpen Sunday and "hopes he only needs one rehab outing" before becoming a part of the Phils' rotation again, the site notes.
Polanco "received an epidural injection" on Thursday and "took about 40 swings in the batting cage" Sunday, MLB.com reports.
