PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Phillies made a roster move just prior to tonight’s game against the Giants. The team has placed outfielder John Mayberry Jr. on the 15-day disabled list due to left wrist inflammation.
Mayberry has a .213 average on the season with six home runs and 21 RBIs.
In response, the team has recalled outfielder/first baseman Darin Ruf to the major league club from triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Ruf will be available to play for the Phillies tonight.
