The Phillies, over the course of spring training and just 22 regular season games (of 162 to be played this season), have joined the ranks of other elite teams, like the Yankees (who are missing nearly half their team including Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton,. Gary Sanchez, Jacoby Ellsbury and others) with a ballooning injury list.Since starting 5-1, the Phillies have come back to earth with a 7-9 record as middling injuries have forced them to rely on Aaron Altherr, Phil Gosselin, Mitch Walding and a few other unknowns as they falter here in late April.Six important Phillies are currently hurt and on the IL, a list which allows the ball club to use replacements on the 25-man roster until such time as they are off the list and ready to return.The problem, of course, is that the players the Phillies have called up, and others who are next in line to be called up represent a pretty big drop off from the juggernaut lineup that made a statement on Opening Day and the week after.Here's an … [Read more...] about When will injured Phillies players return from IL?
