Phillies OF Kyle Schwarber is unlikely to return to the lineup for Philadelphia until at least Friday, according to Philadelphia Inquirer writer Scott Lauber on Twitter. (Philadelphia Inquirer)

Fantasy Impact:

Phillies manager Rob Thomson said Schwarber will still be available to pinch hit until then. But the calf injury is apparently not healed enough to be in the starting lineup just yet. Despite missing the last week, the Phillies slugger still leads the NL with 34 home runs. It's probably worth it for fantasy managers to wait a few extra days to make sure they can get his presence in their lineup as the playoffs approach.
