[/b]RHP Tom Gordon is expected to be cleared to begin a light conditioning program Friday, Phillies assistant general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. Gordon, who has been on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, was hospitalized for three days last week because of an upper respiratory infection that caused a 104-degree fever. Amaro said Gordon may travel to the Phillies' facility in Clearwater, Fla., next week to receive more intensive conditioning. But Amaro said it hasn't been determined when Gordon will begin throwing or pitching in games.
Keep Gordon reserved for now and hope for a speedy recovery. It is unknown if he will return to closing once he returns with the way Brett Myers has pitched.
May 13 Gordon (rotator cuff inflammation) remains hospitalized with an upper respiratory infection, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Recommendation: Gordon, who was admitted Friday, will undergo further testing at the hospital. Brett Meyers will continue to be the team's closer while Gordon is out, and may retain the job even after Gordon's return.
