Phillies Injury Update: Laynce Nix, Carlos Ruiz, Ty Wigginton Questionable On Wednesday Vs. Mets

The Philadelphia Phillies might have to try and avoid being swept by the New York Mets on Wednesday without Laynce Nix, Carlos Ruiz and Ty Wigginton (via Philly.com).

All three players are battling minor injuries according to manager Charlie Manuel. Ruiz has an undisclosed hand injury that stemmed from him "jamming" his hand. He did not participate in batting practice. Wigginton also did not take batting practice due to "soreness in his side." Nix has a sore calf but did participate in batting practice.

When the batting order for tonight's game was released, John Mayberry Jr. was listed as the starter at first base (via Phillies). This will be the third straight start at first base for Mayberry who is hitting .224 this season.
