Dobbs on DL, Cairo Returns
The Phillies placed Greg Dobbs on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf. They selected the contract of Miguel Cairo to take his place.
Dobbs strained his calf in Friday’s loss to the Mets. It sounded yesterday like the injury was not serious, but apparently Dobbs’ diagnosis changed. Dobbs declined comment. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said this morning that Dobbs said he has had the injury off and on since last season. He also said Dobbs might get medical testing tomorrow in Philadelphia.
Brett Myers makes a rehab start today in Single A Lakewood.
J.C. Romero and right-hander Clay Condrey will throw bullpen sessions tomorrow in Clearwater. Antonio Bastardo makes a rehab start tomorrow for the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Phillies.
