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.
