SOSA AND HAND WILL BE BACK IF PHILS MAKE IT TO PLAYOFFS

By Peter Marx

The Phillies are on the cusp of clinching a wild card, and manager Rob Thomson said that the injured Edmundo Sosa and Brad Hand could be options to return for the playoffs should the Phils qualify.

A right hamstring strain has kept Sosa on the 10-day IL since September 16, while Hand was retroactively placed on the 15-day IL on September 22 due to tendinitis in his throwing elbow.

The versatile Sosa hit a scorching .315/.345/.593 in 59 plate appearances after being acquired by the Cardinals on July 30, while Hand has struggled over his last few outings but still has a 2.80 ERA over 45 innings for the season.
