Sore left foot keeps Herrera out of lineup

Sore left foot keeps Herrera out of lineup

PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera did not start Wednesday because of a sore left foot.

Herrera, who made the Opening Day roster as a Rule 5 Draft pick, fouled a ball off his foot in Monday's season opener at Citizens Bank Park. He remained in the game, but it has been bothering him since.

"Still pretty tender," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Nothing that's too serious."

Sandberg said Herrera's foot is a "day-to-day" situation, and that Herrera could pinch-hit Wednesday if needed.
