Your bittersweet Phillies DL news of the day is that Placido Polanco has officially hit the DL, retroactive to July 5, with an inflamed lower back, but the bullpen has its anchor in place once again, with Ryan Madson returning.

As the
unofficial second half gets started tonight with the Phils leading the
East by 3.5 games, it’s not a bad time to get Polly some rest and
hopefully get his bat back in order along with his back. The Braves are
still within striking distance with a lot of games left to play, but the
Phils have consistently held them at bay despite a series of injuries
to multiple players over the course of the first half.
