Man down: Polanco helped off field with "right knee strain"

Maybe our good luck with injuries is running out.

While trying to field a pop up near the pitching mound during today's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates, Placido Polanco went down in a heap and had to be helped off by a pair of trainers.  The Phillies are calling it a "right knee strain" for now (hat tip to Matt Gelb, among others), and we'll presumably have to wait and see what an MRI says before we know more.

If Polanco winds up on the shelf for an extended period of time, methinks we'll be putting a lot of faith in 2010 being a bounceback campaign from Greg Dobbs, huh?
