Manuel shuffles line-up; Figueroa DFA'ed

The line-up Charlie Manuel posted spoke for itself:

  1. Ross Gload RF

  2. Greg Dobbs 3B

  3. Chase Utley 2B

  4. Ryan Howard 1B

  5. Shane Victorino CF

  6. Raul Ibanez LF

  7. Carlos Ruiz C

  8. Wilson Valdez SS

  9. Joe Blanton RHP

Slumping Jayson Werth has another day off.


The Phillies designated Nelson Figueroa for assignment and activated closer Brad Lidge from the disabled list. The move means lefthander Antonio Bastardo remains with the team.

Figueroa will be on waivers until June 3. If no team picks him up, he can either accept an assignment to Triple-A or become a free agent.

Figueroa indicated that he did not see a likely scenario in which he would accept an assignment to Triple-A, meaning his time with the Phillies is likely over.
