The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 32-year old righty starting pitcher Charlie Morton on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left hamstring. Morton has pitched in 4 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 4.15 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. The Phillies have called up 29-year old righty reliever Luis Garcia to replace Morton on the pitching staff. Garcia has pitched in 5 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he is 0-1 with 1 save, a 4.26 ERA and a 2.05 WHIP. He has pitched in 109 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Phillies and he is 6-7 with 2 saves, a 3.94 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP.
UPDATE: (4/27/2016) – The Phillies will be without Charlie Morton for the rest of the 2016 season, as he needs surgery to repair his torn left hamstring.
