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

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Sunday 13 April 2008 at 11:08 pm

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.

    Trades always look better or worse with 20/20 vision in the rearview mirror, however I bet the Phillies would like to have Michael Bourn back. Yes, they signed Jenkins as a fourth outfielder, but losing Bourn via a trade and Rowand to the Giants hurts. And with J-Roll banged up to begin the first month, speed is lacking on this team.

    Yes it seems correct that speed is lacking on the Phillies team team particularly with CF Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list. Taguchi has a good record but it seems unlikely that he can fill in the shoes of Victorino. It is highly unlikely that many will Phillies their top sport picks under this conditions.
