The Phillies have placed starting shortstop Jimmy Rollins on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left ankle. Rollins has played in 12 games for the Phillies so far this season and he is 12 for 39 (.308 avg, .854 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 2 homers, 6 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Rollins will be replaced in the starting lineup by Eric Bruntlett. Bruntlett has played in 13 games for the Phillies this season and he is 7 for 39 (.179 avg, .512 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer, 1 RBI and 1 stolen base. The Phillies have recalled 22-year old righty swinging Brad Harmon to replace Rollins on the roster. Harman has played in 16 games in AA-ball so far this season and he is 12 for 54 (.222 avg, .644 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs. This will hurt the Phillies offense big time as Rollins gets it all going from the leadoff spot.
