The Philadelphia Phillies placed infielder Sean Rodriguez on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right abdominal strain. The Phillies also reinstated catcher J.T. Realmuto from the paternity leave list, designated catcher Rob Brantly for assignment and recalled outfielder Adam Haseley from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Rodriguez's move is retroactive to Wednesday. The 34-year-old is batting .224 with two homers and eight RBIs in 35 games this season. Realmuto, whose wife, Lexi, gave birth to daughter Willa Mae this week, missed Friday's 4-0 loss to the Washington Nationals. He was 0-for-2 in Tuesday's All-Star Game.
Realmuto, 28, is batting .273 with 10 homers and 42 RBIs in 85 games in his first year with the Phillies. Brantly, 29, was 0-for-1 in Friday night's loss, his only at-bat this season with Philadelphia.
Haseley, 23, made his major league debut on June 4 and was 1-for-7 with a double and an RBI in two games. --Field Level Media
