BLOG: Short Handed Phillies Losing Two More
By Lesley Van Arsdall
The Phillies continue to lose games and players. Now the already short handed team will lose two more.
Shane Victorino has been placed on the 15 day DL (hamstring) and it looks like Joe Blanton (elbow) will join him.
A day after we were told Dom Brown wouldn’t be called up because he is “not ready.” 12 hours later he’s ready? I’m confused.
But, I’m sure the Phils know what they are doing. GM Ruben Amaro Jr. says “Circumstances change and I’ve changed my mind.” Ok good enough.
Meanwhile, it looks like if Joe is out, Vance Worley would likely be called up. The question is … what are they going to do when Blanton is healthy? Are they going to move Worley back or trade him for a bat. They sure could use another right now.
