Phillies are suddenly very thin at shortstop as 3 players go on injured list

DENVER — The Phillies' injured list keeps on growing.

As expected, infielder Scott Kingery was placed on the injured list Saturday. He strained his right hamstring in Friday night's 4-3 loss to the Rockies.

Kingery had been playing shortstop in place of Jean Segura, who also had been nursing a hamstring issue. The Phillies had hoped that Segura would be ready to play this weekend. He obviously is not because he, too, was placed on the 10-day IL on Saturday, retroactive to April 17.

Also, the Phils placed reliever Victor Arano on the IL with right elbow inflammation.

So, that's three players placed on the IL on one Saturday afternoon. Kingery, Segura and Arano joined previously sidelined outfielder Odubel Herrera and reliever David Roberston on the IL. Reliever Tommy Hunter has been on the IL all season.

With Kingery and Segura on the IL, the Phils are very thin at shortstop. Phil Gosselin figures to get significant time at the position. Cesar Hernandez has seen some time at the position in his career. Roman Quinn can also help out.

In reaction to Saturday's moves, the Phils recalled infielder Mitch Walding and relievers Austin Davis and Drew Anderson from Triple A.

Cowardly Rockies fans look at Philadelphia delicacy with disdain

Cowardly Rockies fans look at Philadelphia delicacy with disdain

Between the two injuries and the come-from-ahead loss, Friday night left a sour taste in the mouths of the Phillies and their fans.

It also left the hilarious scene of Rockies fans being introduced to one of Philadelphia's local delicacies: the Tastykake butterscotch krimpet.

In extra innings, a Phillies fan gifted an unopened box to a group of Rockies fans, who played hot potato with it, passing it around, hesitant to open it as if a bunch of bees waited inside.

(If only they were the far superior jelly krimpets...)

Eventually, one brave soul opened the box and tried one before passing it to the woman next to him. After a quick taste test, you could tell her reaction was, "Hey, this isn't so bad."

We hope everyone else in that section went to bed hungry and filled with regret. We also hope the butterscotch delights made their way down to the Rockies' clubhouse, leaving Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story bloated heading into Saturday night's game.

Now, it's on Rockies fans to repay the favor when Colorado visits Citizens Bank Park May 17-19. Maybe some frozen elk sausage.
