Phillies: Placido Polanco to Disabled List with Lower Back Inflammation

New, 59 comments

The Phillies have placed third baseman Placido Polanco on the 15 day disabled list, retroactive to July 23, due to complete offensive ineptitude lower back inflammation. A corresponding move to fill Polanco's roster spot is expected tomorrow.

Polanco, 36, has only managed a .255/.300/.328 line in 2012. His sole greatest asset, his defense, seems to have taken a hit this season, with his UZR/150 down to 6.0 from a tremendous 16.7 in 2011.

He has particularly struggled lately, posting a .133/.184/.156 line in July.

Polanco had been seen as a longshot trade candidate, with the Orioles in particular showing interest. Well, there goes that.
