Jean Segura placed on Injured List with Groin Strain
Second baseman, and Walk-off King, Jean Segura has been placed on the 10 IL due to a strain in his groin during yesterday’s game. Segura was responsible for two walk-off wins and has proven to be quite the clutch player. With Bryce Harper also out (lower back injury), where do the Phillies stand? Two of their stronger hitters missing and no many people currently available to fill that hole. Philadelphia faces the dodgers again tonight.
“I’m not so confident that’s day to day,”
Segura was removed in the ninth inning after trying to beat out a throw and limping off the baseline.
The Phillies have gone 2 for 20 with runners in scoring position in the two games which isn’t good. Maybe, they need a new strategy adjustment, a bit of small ball, or something that will bring some new energy or productivity. One thing is clear, the Phillies cannot leave that many men stranded against a strong team like the LA Dodgers. Phillies have lost two games against the dodgers.
After yesterday’s game, Joe Girardi said, “It’s tough. We need some guys to step up tomorrow. I’m not sure exactly what this means. But we’re going to need some guys to step up tomorrow.”
