April 27 Philly.com:
“Ruben Amaro Jr. would not go so far as to say that he had feared the worst, but the Phillies general manager was clearly pleased with the news that team doctor Michael Ciccotti delivered yesterday. An MRI revealed that closer Jose Contreras had suffered only a mild strain and could be back on the active roster within 3 to 4 weeks.
“It’s good news,” Amaro said. “It’s positive news. You don’t want a guy to go on the DL, but it’s better than the alternative.”
