The Phillies have placed 31-year old lefty swinging outfielder Laynce Nix on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 10th, due to a strained right calf. Nix has played in 22 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 15 for 46 (.326 avg, .979 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 2 homers and 11 RBIs.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Tuesday 3 April 2012 at 7:14 pm
