The Phillies have placed #1 starter Cole Hamels on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left elbow. This happens at the worst possible time for the Phillies as they are locked in a battle to make the playoffs. Hamels has started 25 games this season and he is 14-5 with a 3.50 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. In 167.1 innings this season Hamels has allowed 150 hits, walked 39 batters and whiffed 156. The Phillies have activated outfielder Shane Victorino from the disabled list to replace Hamels on the roster. Victorino has played in 106 games this season for the Phillies and he is 116 for 413 (.281 avg, .774 OPS) with 72 runs scored, 11 homers, 42 RBIs and 32 stolen bases.
