Another injury has hit the Phillies 25-man roster heading into the Yankees series

Prior to the Phillies starting a three-game series with the New York Yankees the organization made four changes to their 25-man roster.

Perhaps the most noteworthy is reliever Edubray Ramos being placed on the disabled list with a right shoulder impingement. In a season of inconsistency for the Phillies bullpen, Ramos has been a constant stronghold with a 1.24 ERA in 29 innings.

Ramos threw 14 pitches Sunday night against Washington and allowed two earned runs in another epic bullpen collapse.

Here are the corresponding moves made by the Phillies Monday afternoon.

  • INF Jesmuel Valentín reinstated from the paternity list
  • INF Mitch Walding optioned to Lehigh Valley (AAA)
  • RHP Edubray Ramos (right shoulder impingement) placed on 10-day DL
  • RHP Héctor Neris recalled from Lehigh Valley (AAA)

Neris made just two appearances after the Phillies sent him to Lehigh Valley to clear his head after a rough start to the season. Once viewed as the closer of the future, Neris owns a career-worst 6.00 ERA in 30 games this season.

Valentin announced Monday morning the birth of his child, and is apparently set to return from paternity leave after just one game.

Mitch Walding was sent back to Lehigh Valley to make room for Valentin after grounding out Sunday night. The career minor leaguer is 0-8 with seven strikeouts and a walk in nine plate appearances.

The Phillies series against New York will begin Monday night at 7 p.m. from Philadelphia.
