It appeared on Sunday that rookie pitcher Antonio Bastardo might only miss his start on Wednesday. Well, now the Philadelphia Phillies have placed the young fireballer on the Disabled List. He will join Raul Ibanez, Clay Condrey, Scott Eyre, and Brett Myers on the Disabled List.
In his place, the Phillies have called up pitcher Sergio Escalona yet again. Cole Hamels will pitch in his place on Wednesday, and J.A. Happ will pitch on Thursday.
Also, it appears that Raul Ibanez will most likely not come off of the DL on schedule this Friday. The Phillies have decided to keep him on their for a couple more days. The way John Mayberry Jr. is hitting though, tell Raul to take his time. Ibanez has made a huge impact with the Phils so far, but, Mayberry is doing a fine job filling in for Raul.
