Phillies Injury Update

In a move filled with sublime irony, the Phillies today placed Rod "5 Hole" Barajas on the 15 day DL with a stained groin. 

We sure know he didn't hurt it blocking the plate.

Barajas' injury brings to 9 the number of Phils on the DL:

R. Barajas C Aug  3 15-day Right groin strain
R. Madson RP Jul 30 15-day Right shoulder strain
S. Victorino RF/CF Jul 30 15-day Right calf strain
M. Bourn LF/CF Jul 30 15-day Sprained right ankle
C. Utley 2B Jul 27 15-day Fractured right hand - out 3-6 weeks
J. Lieber SP Jun 21 60-day Ruptured tendon in right foot
F. Rosario RP Jun 16 60-day Right shoulder strain
F. García SP Jun  9 60-day Sore right shoulder
S. Mathieson SP Apr  1 60-day Recovery from right elbow surgery

In addition, Tom Gordon may be headed back to the shelf.  A day after his first appearance in 2 months, Gordon was unavailable with tightness in his right shoulder.  Plus the newly-acquired Kyle Lohse took a seat after 29 pitches yesterday after being hit with a line drive.

Lovely.  Just Lovely.
