Didi Gregorius goes 2-for-2 in first rehab game with Lehigh Valley
The Phillies made a few roster moves yesterday after it was announced that Jean Segura would missed 10-12 weeks with a fractured thumb.
Before yesterday’s much needed win against the Giants. The Phillies recalled Christopher Sanchez and Nick Maton from Lehigh Valley. Roman Quinn was also designated for assignment.
Sanchez pitched a scoreless inning yesterday, as Nick Maton got the start yesterday and capitalized on the opportunity, going 2-for-4 from the plate with 3 RBI.
After Aaron Nola fell apart in the top of the sixth inning, Maton hit a two-run home run, to pull the Phillies back within one run of the Giants. They eventually took the lead thanks to another two-run home run by Kyle Schwarber.
Didi Gregorius starts rehab stint with Lehigh Valley
In other Phillies infield news, Didi Gregorius started his rehab stint yesterday with Lehigh Valley in their 7-3 win over the Rail Raiders yesterday. Gregorius went 2-for-2 with a home run, two RBI, and a walk in yesterday’s game with the IronPigs.
It’s unclear how long Gregorius will need in the minor leagues before making his way back to the Phillies, but honestly, he can take as much time as he wants.
The Phillies were horrible in the month of May and kicked off June with a 6-5 win over the Giants. Having players like Maton, Stott, and Camargo in the lineup finally gave this team a little life.
No baseball today. The Phillies will kick off a weekend series tomorrow against the Los Angeles Angels at Citizens Bank Park.
