Gload Takes Leave, Mayberry Returns

First baseman/outfielder Ross Gload was placed on the paternity leave list today, the Phillies announced. To fill his spot on the 25-man roster, OF John Mayberry Jr. was recalled from triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Mayberry, who was optioned to Lehigh Valley yesterday when center fielder Shane Victorino was activated from the disabled list, will be available for tonight’s game in Pittsburgh against the Pirates at 7:05 p.m.

So that was fast. Mayberry won’t be free for long though; the paternity leave only lasts up to 72 hours, so it’s likely he’ll be back by the time the Phillies get back to Philly. Unless he’s DL’ed…stay tuned.
