Abbreviated roster post to update you in advance of tonight’s game–printable roster and editorializing to follow if time permits as I make my way to the game.
Phillies place RHP Aaron Nola on DL with “elbow strain.” He was to start tonight, so Phillies pilfer Phil Klein from the IronPigs, who was originally scheduled to be our starter for tonight. Reading then activates RHP Thomas Eshelman from DL and sends RHP Gregory Infante to the IronPigs for what will now become a bull-pen-type game as Infante has been working in relatively short relief of late. Reliever Jeanmar Gomez is added to the Paternity List by Philadelphia, so the Phillies take Michael Mariot, who looked really good last night in the save.
Reports are, OF Roman Quinn will rejoin the Fightins tomorrow. Stay tuned for corresponding moves….
