PHILLIES: Victorino to DL; Domonic Brown Recalled from AAA

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Phillies have placed centerfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.  To take his place on the roster, outfielder Domonic Brown has been recalled from AAA Lehigh Valley.

Victorino hasn’t started a game since Saturday, in Atlanta.  His lone appearance since then was as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday when he laid down a sacrifice bunt.  Because of that appearance, this DL stint will only be retroactive to May 19th.

Brown was hitting .341 (14-41) with two home runs and 10 RBI in 11 games for Lehigh Valley.

    This fragile, aging offense is going to need a lot more than Dominic. Ruben needs to do some shopping as well.
