Rollins to the DL

Accorinding to the Daily News:

 "Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins has been put on the disabled list for the first time in his eight-year career.

He sprained his left ankle on April 8 at Shea Stadium running the bases in the top of the eighth inning and has not started a game since, but has pinch-hit four times."


"Outfielder Chris Snelling was also placed on the disabled list with left knee inflammation. Snelling is backdated to April 17.

The Phillies recalled infielder Brad Harman from Double A Reading and outfielder T.J. Bohn was recalled from Triple A Lehigh Valley."

Could the Phillies mishandled this situation any worse?  Putting Rollins out there for pinch hitting duties could only make the ankle worse.  They had a short bench because of it and now he has to miss another 2 weeks which will make it pretty much a month total.  It may have been that anyway, but who knows and we'd have a little bit deeper bench.  No comment on the callups...
