Roster Moves: Nick Castellanos placed on IL, Phillies select contract of 26-year-old outfielder
The Phillies have placed OF Nick Castellanos on the 10-day IL (retro to Sept. 3) with a right oblique strain.
As a corresponding move, Dalton Guthrie’s contract has been selected from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The Phillies have DFA’d INF Luis Garcia to make room for Guthrie on the 40.
The Phillies lose Nick Castellanos til September 13th at the earliest, as he hits the IL with an oblique strain. Castellanos has been fighting turf toe throughout the last week and is now sidelined with a different injury.
Castellanos has really picked it up over the last two months, hitting .310/.339/.491 over his last 30 games with 5 HRs, 14 RBIs, 36 hits, 14 runs, and 3 stolen bases.
Dalton Guthrie will make his major league debut for the Phillies once they return home following their series in San Francisco. Dalton Guthrie has played 92 games in Lehigh Valley this year, slashing .302/.363/.839 with 10 home runs and 52 RBI.
The Phillies take on the San Francisco Giants today in hopes of avoiding a sweep. Ranger Suarez takes the hill. Check out our full game preview here.
