Park Could Return for NLCS

Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Park Chan-ho may be available to pitch in the National League Championship Series, the Philadelphia Daily News is reporting.

The Phillies are hopeful the veteran South Korean will return from his hamstring strain, suffered on Sept. 16 in a 6-1 win over the Washington Nationals.

Park is currently rehabbing and throwing at the team's spring training complex in Clearwater, Fla.

The 36-year-old right-hander was one of the Phillies most reliable relievers after being moved to the bullpen early in the season. He went 2-2 with a 2.52 ERA in 38 relief appearances.

Park's return to the Phils' shaky bullpen could potentially allow starter Joe Blanton to return to the starting rotation if need be.

"He would have a good chance [of returning]," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "I hear that he's doing pretty good. It's what our trainers tell me."
