The Philadelphia Phillies place Shane Victorino on the D.L.

The Phillies have placed starting CF Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf. He has played in 12 games this season for the Phillies and he is 11 for 47 (.234 avg, .571 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 2 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Victorino will be replaced in CF by So Taguchi and Jayson Werth. Taguchi has played in 10 games this season for the Phillies and he is 2 for 9 (.222 avg, .666 OPS) with 3 runs scored and 1 RBI. Werth has played in 8 games for the Phillies this season and he is 8 for 19 (.421 avg, 1.277 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer, 5 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The Phillies won’t likely miss Victorino’s bat….but neither Taguchi or Werth is in his league as a defender.
