The Philadelphia Phillies made several roster moves today that involved three pitchers being placed on the 15-day disabled list.
First guy to be added to the disabled list is left handed veteran Cole Hamels. Hamels worked through two innings during a Minor league game and appeared to be pleased with how things were going according to ESPN.com. Hamels could re-join the Phillies sometime during the month of May, but should be sitting tight on the disabled list for right now.
Right handed pitcher Mike Adams has been trying to work his way back from shoulder and a hernia operation. He participated in a Minor league game this past Wednesday and hopes to return to action by the end of April.
Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez has been dealing with a little bit of shoulder soreness for a couple weeks now and received a cortisone injection today to relieve some pain. Gonzalez could be throwing off the mound soon if the shot works to his expectations.
Ethan Martin hasn’t pitched for the Phillies ever since he was pulled from his first start with a sore shoulder. There’s no word on how long he’ll be out, so right now the 15-day disabled list could be a temporary stay for the righty.
Infielder Freddy Galvis was diagnosed with MRSA and could be ready for game time action in two weeks. This is something that the team is going to have to pay close attention to and make sure it doesn’t spread throughout the club house. He could be ready by the end of April depending on how bad the infection is.
Utility man Dariun Ruf suffered a strained left oblique and could be expected to miss anywhere between four to six weeks. There’s a slim chance that he could return before that time frame is up, so right now he’ll be placed on the 15 day until the club hears something different.
