PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Phillies today announced a host of roster moves.
After leaving last night’s start in St. Louis after two ineffective innings (see related story), Roy Oswalt has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with lower back inflammation.
To take his place on the roster, righthander Scott Mathieson is being brough back from AAA Lehigh Valley.
Also some good injury news: backup catcher Brian Schneider has been activated off the DL. He had been out for more than a month with a hamstring injury. Dane Sardinha goes down to the Iron Pigs to make room for him.
Also, lefthander JC Romero — designated for assignment on June 16th — has been given his outright release.
