Victorino was placed on the DL with a hamstring injury on May 20th. He went 2-13 on a four-game minor league rehabilitation assignment with Single-A Lakewood and Double-A Reading. Overall on the season, Victorino is hitting .284 with six home runs.
Mayberry batted .231 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 45 games for the Phillies.
