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."

Also:

"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...
