More Phillies Injury: Victor Arano Latest DL Member
The Phillies received more bad injury news on Monday afternoon. Reliever Victor Arano, who has been absolutely stellar in relief for the Phillies, was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a rotator cuff strain. This is Arano's first major league disabled list stint.
Arano had allowed just one run in 10 appearances for the Phillies, helping minimize the loss of relievers Pat Neshek and Tommy Hunter. Arano struck out 13 in his 12 innings of work over those 10 appearances. Hunter recently was activated, while Neshek has yet to begin a formal rehab assignment.
To replace Arano on the Phillies active roster, the club added starter Zach Eflin to the active roster. As we mentioned when Ben Lively hit the disabled list, Eflin takes Lively's turn in the starting rotation.
The Phillies currently have six players on the disabled list: Arano, Neshek, Lively, reliever Mark Leiter, Jr, starter Jerad Eickhoff, and shortstop J.P. Crawford.
