Injuries

Utley and Polanco headed to the DL

Chase Utley and Placido Polanco have been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Chase sprained his right thumb in last night’s game as he was thrown out attempting to stretch a single into a double via a head first slide.

Placido, who has been nursing a right elbow injury, received a cortisone shot on Monday. Unfortunately it did not help. He will likely need surgery in the offseason, but the Phils hope some rest will at least get him to game-shape.

Greg Dobbs and Brian Bocock have been recalled and will join the team in Cincinnati.
