PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Phillies slugger Pat Burrell will have season-ending wrist surgery Friday, another blow to Philadelphia's playoff hopes.
 

Earlier in the day, Wade bolstered Philadelphia's rotation, acquiring right-hander Cory Lidle from Cincinnati for two minor leaguers and a player to be named.

Burrell, who injured his left wrist in batting practice last Tuesday, was hitting .263 with 18 homers and 68 RBI. He'll be replaced in left field by a combination of Doug Glanville, Jason Michaels and rookie Lou Collier.

The injury-plagued Phillies, who trail the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves by 5½ games going into Monday night's game against Colorado, also are without closer Billy Wagner, starter Kevin Millwood and top setup reliever Ryan Madson.

"It's tough for us to handle," Phillies general manager Ed Wade said Monday. "We're going to miss the power in the lineup."

That says it all man. They have had the worst luck since day 1, and have still managed to stay near the top.

There's still hope.

Pat reported much improvement in the past 48 hours and they postponed Friday's surgery and is going to have it looked at again in about a week.

Millwood is still in the air too, hopefully he'll be able to return in Sept to help for the playoff push. If there is one.
