Shane Victorino may have won MLB's "Final Vote" for the All-Star Game, but the Phillies center fielder won't be playing in Phoenix next week. The Phillies placed him on the 15-day disabled list Friday and called up infielder Pete Orr from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Victorino sprained a ligament in his right thumb and hasn't played since Sunday, so the move is retroactive to July 4.
Although Victorino won the fan's final vote, manager Bruce Bochy had the autonomy to replace Victorino. He selected the Dodgers' Andre Ethier, snubbing the Pirates' Andrew McCutchen for a second (or third) time. Ethier is hitting .313/.382/.451 with seven home runs and no stolen bases, while McCutchen is hitting .291/.389/.491 with 12 home runs and 15 RBI.
Victorino is hitting .303/.376/.524 with nine home runs this season.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
