Seanez to the DL

Two days ago I called out Rudy Seanez and how bad he has pitched this month and now it looks like we won't be seeing him for a while. The Phillies placed Seanez on the 15 day disabled list with a shoulder inflammation. Supposedly Seanez hurt himself while making a tag in Thursday's game, but this could also just be a phantom injury to get him off the roster.

The Phillies called up Les Walrond from Triple A to replace Seanez. Walrond isn't a prospect at 31 years old, but he did strike out 17 batters in a start for Lehigh Valley in early July. Walrond previously pitched for the Royals and Cubs, going 25 total innings and putting up an ERA of 7.46.

There has been no word on Flash Gordon, who has been eligible to come off the DL for several days now, but he doesn't appear close to coming back.

I hope they tell Flash to take a season long vacation.

Who takes over the 8th inning role if Flash is on permanent vacation?
