Nate Schierholtz (toe) took batting practice Wednesday for the first time since being placed on the disabled list.
It's a good first step, but Schierholtz has only missed just over a week of the 3-4 week timetable the Phillies gave him when he fractured his big right toe. Obviously running will be a bigger test for the outfielder.

Nate Schierholtz (toe) is expected to miss at least three to four weeks.
Schierholtz was placed on the disabled list Monday after fracturing his big right toe during his only at-bat in Sunday's game. It's a tough break for the 28-year-old, who will miss time he otherwise would have spent auditioning for a spot on the 2013 squad. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel has hinted that Laynce Nix could be worked into the mix in center field during his absence. Domonic Brown is expected to stay in right field.

Phillies acquired OF Nate Schierholtz, C Tommy Joseph and RHP Seth Rosin from the Giants for OF Hunter Pence and cash considerations.
Schierholtz is getting the change of scenery he asked for. The 28-year-old has only logged 197 plate appearances this season, but he should see semi-regular playing time in the Phillies' outfield the rest of the way. He has some pop and a strong arm, so he could turn into a useful piece of the Fightins. Schierholtz is making $1.3 million this season and remains under team control through 2014.
