The Phillies have placed newly acquired outfielder Nate Schierholtz on the 15 day disabled list due to a fractured right big toe.
OF Nate Schierholtz placed on 15-day DL with a fractured right great toe. INF Hector Luna recalled from— Phillies (@Phillies) August 13, 2012
Since arriving in Philadelphia on August 1st, Schierholtz has posted a .219/.278/.344 line in 37 plate appearances, and had recently begun playing some center field.
Schierholtz, 28, was acquired by the Phillies as part of the July 31st trade sending Hunter Pence to the San Francisco Giants.
Also, I refuse to call it the "great toe" because that just sounds weird.
With Schierholtz out, it appears as if center field belongs to John Mayberry, at least for the time being, although perhaps Domonic Brown will get a few reps out there as well. Spring Training in August!
