Here’s the table of contents for the things that’s now called Daily Notes.

2. Actual Game Result: Philadelphia vs. FSU
3. Actual Future Games: MLB.TV This Weekend

Injury Reports
Howard Maybe Doesn’t Not Not Suffer Setback
Three or so days ago, manager Charlie Manuel told reporters that first baseman Ryan Howard had suffered a setback in his recovery from Achilles surgery. The day after that, the club clarified Manuel’s statement, noting that Howard had a condition known as seroma — a pocket of clear fluid that sometimes develops in an area after surgery, and which is relatively common following the sort of procedure Howard had undergone. Now, this morning, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Howard underwent a “small procedure” Monday to remove stitches from Howard’s wound. Howard must allow the new wound to heal before resuming rehab, is the point, and is sidelined indefinitely — which, if you don’t know, now you know.

Update on Sizemore Injury Expected Today
It was revealed on Friday, according to MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian, that Cleveland Indians maybe center fielder Grady Sizemore suffered a lower back injury roughly three weeks ago during outfield drills at Cleveland’s complex. According to manager Manny Acta, an update on said injury is due today.

Giants Sanchez Now Dealing with Back Spasms
San Francisco Giants second baseman Freddy Sanchez, who saw his 2011 season end in June due to a shoulder injury, is now dealing with back spasms, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. Per Schulman, manager Bruce Bochy still hopes to have Sanchez play by the second week of Cactus League games, at least as a designated hitter. This author’s advice to the Giants? Do Joe Panik!

Actual Game Result: Philadelphia vs. FSU
There was an actual baseball game on Wednesday involving at least one actual major-league baseball team. The Phillies played Florida State University, winning 6-1 (box).

Here are some notes on same, bulleted for Ultimate Satisfaction:

• Philadelphia deployed a lineup of Jimmy Rollins (SS), Juan Pierre (DH), Shane Victorino (CF), Hunter Pence (RF), Ty Wigginton (3B), Domonic Brown (LF), John Mayberry (1B), Michael Martinez (2B), and Tuffy Gosewisch (C).

• After introducing himself, relatively anonymous Philly catcher Gosewisch added, “I hope I’m pronouncing that right.”*

• Here are some numbers from FSU center fielder James Ramsey’s stat line on the young college season: 7-7 GP-GS, 19 AB, 11 H, 3 HR, 13 BB, 2 HBP, 2 K.

*Not an actual thing that happened.
