Neris recalled as Phillies place Ramos on disabled list
Prior to Monday's series opener with the Yankees, the Phillies placed reliever Edubray Ramos on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement and recalled Hector Neris from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Ramos said he felt some discomfort on Saturday, but the problem worsened after surrendering two runs on two hits in two-thirds of an inning on Sunday. There's no timetable for his return. Through 29 games this year the righty has been one of the more reliable arms in the Phillies' bullpen, pitching to a 1.24 ERA to go along with a 1.14 WHIP.

As for Neris, he rejoins the bullpen a week after being sent down to Triple-A. He opened the season in the closer role for the Phillies, but surrendered runs in six of his previous 10 outings and is carrying a 6.00 ERA. It's doubtful he'll be used in high leverage situation anytime soon, particularly in this series with the Yankees. He did toss two scoreless innings with the IronPigs over the last seven days,

In another move, the Phillies reinstated infielder Jesmuel Valentin from the paternity list and optioned Mitch Walding to Triple-A.
