A press release issued Tuesday afternoon by the Philadelphia Phillies gives updates on the condition of injured players, Ryan Howard and Hunter Pence.
The team issued the following statement:
"After seeing the wound specialist in Philadelphia yesterday, Ryan Howard’s wound has gotten smaller and is healing. We’ve been advised to limit his activities for one more week to allow it to continue to heal. We hope that he will be able to re-start his baseball activities thereafter.
Additionally, Hunter Pence will undergo a precautionary MRI on his left shoulder (non-throwing) here in Phoenix. We hope to have the results later this afternoon."
