Yeah, he was never going to play in All-Star Game.

The Phillies placed Shane Victorino on the 15-day DL today with a grade 1 strain in his right thumb. The move is retroactive to July 4th, when he got hurt in Toronto.

Conveniently, the Phillies waited until after Victorino was voted into the All-Star Game to place him on the DL. Coincidence? Probably not. 

Look for this to become a story in 3…2… (that's a Space Shuttle tribute right there, folks).

    $25k for the AS Team. Smart move. He was definitely going to miss the Braves series. He gets some rest and only misses the Mets (without Reyes) and Chicago

    Nice topic and post, as we were just talking about what things can happen in the medicine industry.
