Darick Hall will be moved to the IL, Phillies call up Kody Clemens from AAA
Phillies 1B Darick Hall seems to be heading to the IL after suffering a right thumb sprain in today’s matinee loss to the Yankees.
Darick Hall is Heading to the IL
The team has not officially announced Hall to the IL yet, but all signs point to the left-handed slugger going to at least the 10-day. Kody Clemens is being called up from Triple-A.
The Phillies will now have some switching around to do. Alec Bohm will see a good portion of the time at first base until Hall is healthy, and Edmundo Sosa will get a majority of the playing time at third base.
Clemens will serve as a bench bat and could get some starts here and there. The call-up of Clemens comes as a bit of a shock, with Kingery hitting so well in Triple-A right now.
