Romero, Durbin Sent to DL

Two more go down in the Phillies injury-plagued bull pen. Both JC Romero and Chad Durbin were sent to the 15-day DL. Being called up in their place were Andrew Carpenter and Tyler Walker. Both Walker and Carpenter have pitched this season for the Phillies.

Romero has a strained left forearm and Durbin strained a muscle in his back. Romero has a 2.87 ERA and no decisions in 20 appearances since returning from his 50-game suspension. Durbin 1-2 with a 4.62 ERA in his 42 appearances.

Durbin has not looked good at all recently which may have been due to the sore back. Hopefully these 15 days will help him straighten himself out.

Walker was 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA in nine games in an earlier stint while Carpenter earned a win in his only start in the beginning of the season right after Brett Myers went down.
