The Phillies have placed righty reliever Tom Gordon on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. Gordon has pitched in 34 games this season for the Phillies and he is 5-4 with 2 saves, a 5.16 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP. The Phillies have recalled 25-year old lefty reliever R.J. Swindle has pitched very well in the minors this season so it will be interesting to see if he can handle the majors. Swindle has pitched in 30 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA ball this season and he was 2-1 with a 1.52 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP. He also only allowed 29 hits while whiffing 50 batters in only 41.1 innings in the minors which shows he has nasty stuff. He has appeared in 1 game with the Phillies so far this season and he is 0-0 with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP.
