Placido PolancoPhillies third baseman Placido Polanco will not return to the team on Wednesday when he is eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list. Polanco, voted by the fans to start the All-Star Game, hasn't played since July 4 because of back pain. On Monday, he told reporters he was still in pain from the bulging disc.

Polanco is currently on anti-inflammatory medication and may need an epidural injection.

"The idea was thrown out by doctors in Philly," Polanco told reporters, including Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com. "They say they really help. I've tried rest and medication. I'm at the point where I think I'll have the injection. It's still sore."

Roy Oswalt had an epidural injection earlier this month for the bulging disc in his back and is reportedly feeling better.
