Ryan Howard gets hit with the flu bug. Clay Condrey gets hit with the injury bug. That little pest has been plaguing the Phillies clubhouse the past two weeks, starting with Brad Lidge and being passed on to Scott Eyre and Raul Ibanez. Now it’s Condrey’s turn.
Condrey was put on the 15-day DL after a strained oblique. He had a 3.71 ERA, 22 K’s, and 14 walks in 34 innings. Though these numbers aren’t awesome, he’s still been very solid for a bull pen struggling to find an answer anywhere. Sergio Escalona was called up in his place.
