Phillies Place Jean Segura on 10-day IL, Bring Back Nick Maton
The Philadelphia Phillies made a roster move ahead of their game against the Los Angles Dodgers on Wednesday night.
Second baseman Jean Segura was placed on the 10-day injured list with a Grade 1 left groin strain and is expected to miss three weeks.
In a corresponding move, INF Nick Maton was selected from the Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Segura has been the Phillies best and most consistent hitter this season, and was recently moved up to the No. 2 spot in the batting order. So far this season the 31-year old is batting .332 with three homers and six steals in 49 games this season.
His seemed to injury his groin while running to first base on Tuesday night.
Without Segura the Phillies will move Rhys Hoskins to the No. 2 spot in the order and play Luke Williams at second base. Williams is hitting in the No. 6 spot in the order.
The 24-year old Maton played in 11 games for the D-backs during his first stint with the team, hitting 252 with two home runs, eight RBI, two stolen bases over 103 at-bats.
The Phillies continue their series against the Dodger at 10:10 p.m. with Zack Wheeler facing Clayton Kershaw.
