Pence out for the Phillies Monday night
The Philadelphia Phillies just keep rolling. It’s not enough that they struggle to even score one run against poor pitchers, but now they keep getting good news. First, we found out that Cliff Lee had to go on the 15-day DL with a side strain. Now? The one guy they have who can hit the baseball has a sore shoulder and will miss Monday night’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to Jim Salisbury.
“Pence out of lineup w sore L shoulder, Manuel says. He banged into wall in SF a week ago,” he tweets.
We don’t know the severity of the injury right now, but if Pence needs a DL stint, the Phillies should just immediately become sellers and have a fire sale. This season is going to be a complete waste as it is, let alone losing a guy of Pence’s caliber.
John Mayberry, Jr. will take Pence’s place in right field, and stink up the joint when he steps in the batter’s box.
