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).

  1. is shane entitled to any type of bonus for making the allstar team? if so, I hope the flyin hawaiian gets paid.

  2. $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
