The Phillies have placed outfielder Geoff Jenkins on the 15-day disabled list with a right hip flexor strain. Jenkins has played in 108 games for the Phillies this season and he is 70 for 284 (.246 avg, .698 OPS) with 27 runs scored, 9 homers and 29 RBIs. Jayson Werth will take over as the full time right fielder and that’s a good thing for the Phillies as he has outplayed Jenkins anyway. Werth has played in 102 games for the Phillies this season and he is 79 for 299 (.264 avg, .839 OPS) with 46 runs scored, 17 homers, 47 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. 34-year old lefty swinging 1B Andy Tracy has been recalled from AAA to replace Jenkins on the active roster. Tracy was playing very well in AAA so the Phillies hope that his bat stays hot. Tracy has played in 120 games in AAA this season and he is 120 for 417 (.288 avg, .893 OPS) with 67 runs scored, 21 homers, 84 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. He has also played in 137 games in his major league career in which he is 59 for 263 (.224 avg, .722 OPS) with 34 runs scored, 13 homers and 41 RBIs. But, Tracy has often been overmatched in the majors as he has whiffed a stunning 95 times in the show.
