July 20 CSN Philly

Lots of folks have wondered why the Phillies have lugged Michael Martinez on their roster all season.

For the first time in 26 days, the fourth Philadelphia Phillies ace, Roy Oswalt, stepped onto a mound and pitched.  Oswalt threw about 50 pitches before the Phillies played the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Tuesday. He reported no problems or discomfort in his lower back, which forced him to the disabled list in late June.  “I actually felt great,” Oswalt said after his bullpen session. “Probably felt as good as I did in spring training.”
