The Phillies have placed starting 3B Pedro Feliz on the 15-day disabled list with a case of lower back inflammation. He has played in 99 games for the Phillies this season and he is 87 for 340 (.256 avg, .728 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 12 homers and 46 RBIs. The Phillies should be able to replace Feliz’ bat but neither Eric Bruntlett or Greg Dobbs are near as good of a defender as he is. Dobbs will likely get more playing time than Bruntlett and that’s a good thing for the Phillies’ offense. Dobbs has played in 85 games for the Phillies this season and he is 41 for 131 (.313 avg, .793 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 3 homers and 21 RBIs. Bruntlett is the better defender between him and Dobbs. Bruntlett has played in 76 games this season for the Phillies and he is 36 for 154 (.234 avg, .643 OPS) with 32 runs scored, 2 homers, 12 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. The Phillies have recalled 31-year old righty swinging 1B Mike Cervenak from AAA to replace Pedro Feliz on the roster. He will likely be nothing more than a pinch hitter for the Phillies but he’s no complaining. He has played in 99 games this season in AAA ball and he was 124 for 388 (.320 avg, .786 OPS) with 58 runs scored, 7 homers, 56 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. This is Cervenak’s second trip to the majors this season as he was 0 for 1 on July 11th for the Phillies.
