Brad Lidge took another step in rehabilitating from his torn right rotator cuff on Saturday.
The Phillies reliever pitched one scoreless inning in an extended spring-training game in Clearwater, Fla. He gave up one hit, struck out one batter and threw 24 pitches. He is expected to make a similar appearance on Tuesday.
The 34-year-old pitcher has been on the disabled list all season and is expected to make a couple of extended spring-training appearances before starting a minor-league rehab stint.
