Hamels hits disabled list with shoulder injury

HamelsBy Evan Brunell

Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels was placed on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation, the team announced.

Hamel's injury isn't particularly serious, but Philadelphia is already 6 1/2 games up in first place, plus second-place Atlanta is 8 1/2 up in the wild card, leaving the Phillies in virtually no danger of missing the postseason. And if, in fact, an epic collapse is on the way, it won't be because Hamel was placed on the disabled list. He will rest and recuperate until eligible to be activated on Aug. 29 for a start against the Reds, with the DL stint retroactive to Aug. 13.

Utilityman Pete Orr was recalled to take Hamels' spot on the roster. It's not yet clear who will replace Hamels in the rotation, although that figures to be Kyle Kendrick. Kendrick has assumed a long-man's role this season and has already made 12 starts on the year, coupled with 17 relief appearances, throwing up a 3.24 ERA for his efforts. While you can expect some regression from Kendrick, who has pitched over his head so far, he should function well as the No. 5 starter. The Nos. 1-3 in the rotation are still aces, and Vance Worley is no slouch out of the No. 4 spot, so while Hamels' loss is a blow, the team should weather it.

Hamels hits disabled list with shoulder injury

so 19 runs in the last two games (granted against the mets) by the "replacements" on a "M*A*S*H" unit doesn't really count for squat, eh?  are you gonna be one of those people crying about how unfair it is when the phillies beat the braves at home in atlanta on the last three days of the season with your self-proclaimed "M*A*S*H" unit?  did you even watch the phillies weather the 2010 injury bug to make it to the nlcs and be beat by the eventual world series champions?  if you are a phillies fan (i assume so because you're in DE) then you haven't been one for very long.  in fact, i'd be willing to bet you've got a yankees hat in closet from 2009. hoser. 

i'd like to point out the casualties list for 2011, with the phillies STILL being the BEST TEAM IN BASEBALL.

phillies to the WS, even with backups at SS and 3rd.  dunno if you noticed, but the replacements (mayberry, martinez and valdez) have played pretty clutch when inserted into the lineup this year.  phillies with the best defense (errors-wise) in the national league?  go over to yahoo sports where you belong with that opinion.

Oh HI, this is the 2011 philadelphia phillies MASH unit with the best fielding percentage in the league.

I'm sorry to say but the recent Phils' M*A*S*H unit cannot bode well for a deep playoff run.  Yes, it helps that they've the best record in baseball so that they can trot out replacements to fill the various voids.  But, just as you want to be playing your best baseball in the stretch run, you also want to be playing your best players then as well.

They'll make the NLCS and lose to Atlanta.
The injury bug has struck another worthy contender again...

I think this is worse then first thought,  I would not be surprised if he is done this year,  Phils have a history of understating injuries.

They need another infielder w/Rollins on the DL , After Hamels returns, in 2 days they can expand the rosters.

I'm sure this is minor. Phillies can put in cruise control and get everyone healthy and rested for the playoffs. At the same time they should try to reduce the workload/innings with Halladay and Lee. With September roster expansio
n looming perhaps they can bring up another starter up to eat up some innings.
