Reliever Tom Gordon was put on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.
This report also says Gordon has a sore right shoulder. Left-hander RJ Swindle has been brought back up to the Major League roster.
And may I say it’s about time. In fact, it was about time last week, before Gordon blew a game for the Phils against the Mets. The Phillies front office knew Gordon was injured â€” he had said it himself. That they waited until two weeks after the announcement to finally DL him is preposterous. Thanks for the late move, boys.
