Phillies put Hamels on DL, call up Orr

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed All-Star left-hander Cole

Hamels on the disabled list and recalled infielder Pete Orr from

Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The move announced before Tuesday’s game against the New York

Mets is retroactive to Aug. 13 and will allow Hamels to come off

the DL Sunday so he can make his next scheduled to start Monday at

Cincinnati. Hamels has inflammation in his left shoulder.

The 2008 World Series MVP is 13-7 with a 2.62 ERA in 25


Orr has hit .238 with three RBIs in previous stints with the

Phillies this season.
