Phillies Reinstate Odubel Herrera from I.L., Send Down Simón Muzziotti
The Philadelphia Phillies announced a roster move on Friday ahead of their matchup with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Center fielder Odubel Herrera has been reinstated from the 10-day injured list, after straining an oblique late in spring training, while Simon Muzziotti was optioned to Double-A Reading..
Additionally, the team has the lineup posted for Friday's game with Milwaukee, with Herrera right in the lineup in the No. 9 spot, playing center.
Herrera could add some much needed production to bottom of the Phillies lineup that has struggled with Matt Vierling, who has been hitting in the nine hole in the lineup.
The right-handed-hitting Vierling was slated to platoon with Herrera at the beginning of the season, but we'll see if that's still the plan with Vierling struggling in the early going, hitting ,172 with a .242 on-base percentage in 13 games.
