Phillies put Victorino on DL
CHICAGO » Outfielders Shane Victorino and Michael Bourn became the latest players to join the Philadelphia Phillies' ever-growing disabled list.
Victorino and Bourn were put on the 15-day DL yesterday. Victorino is out because of a strained right calf and Bourn is out with a sprained left ankle.
The moves came less than a week after All-Star second baseman Chase Utley went to the disabled list with a broken hand. Utley is hoping to be back with the team in three weeks.
The Phillies already had six players on the disabled list, including Utley.
Despite the injuries, the Phillies have continued to draw closer to the NL East-leading New York Mets.
"We'll just have to fight through it and keep on going. Hopefully Bourn and Victorino will be back and Chase will be back fairly soon after that," Phillies general manager Pat Gillick said.
Victorino is batting .284 with 11 home runs and 42 RBIs. An MRI exam yesterday showed a small tear.
"I expected the worst. When we got the results, it wasn't as bad as we thought it was," Victorino said. -- Associated Press
