Phillies News: Seanez DL, Walrond Called Up, Carrassco to AAA

Saturday, August 2, 2008 ·

The Phillies made a few organizational moves today. First, the Phils placed reliever Rudy Seanez on the DL. He was placed on the 15-day DL with shoulder inflammation. He is also having some back problems.

To replace Seanez in the bullpen, the Phillies called up left-handed reliever, Les Walrond. Walrond threw a 17 strike out game against Louisville in July. He's been quite the journeman. Walrond has made 17 career appearances in the majors. He posted a 7.46 ERA and 1.93 whip in 25.1 innings with Kansas City and the Chicago Cubs.

In other news, Carlos Carrasco has been promoted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. For Double-A Reading, Carrasco was 7-7 with a 4.32 ERA and 109/45 K/BB ratio.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
