The Phils have announced that they have placed six of their players on the disabled list.

Philadelphia_PhilliesAs the Phils prepare to play their final two spring training games at Citizens Bank Park, they have announced that they plan to start the season with six of their players on the 15-day disabled list.

The six players are infielder Freddy Galvis with a left knee infection, outfielder/first baseman Darin Ruf out with a left oblique strain, left-handed starter Cole Hamels with left biceps tendinitis, right-handed starter Miguel Gonzalez with right shoulder tendinitis, right-handed reliever Mike Adams, who is recovering from right shoulder surgery and right-handed reliever Ethan Martin with right shoulder inflammation, with all but Adams being retroactive to March 21, as Adams goes back to March 26.

Adams has said that he hopes to join the team by April 15, while Hamels believes he should be ready by the end of April. Galvis, who is recovering from MRSA, hopes to be back by the middle of April. Ruf should be out for four to six weeks because of his injury, while Martin has started throwing. Ruben Amaro has mentioned that Gonzalez might be placed on the 60-day disabled list to give the team a bit of flexibility on the 40-man roster.

I just hope they guys will get back soon, so that they can all help the team.
