Brad Lidge was placed on the DL once again with right elbow inflammation, retroactive to May 9, after making just 4 appearances for the Phils. Called up from Lehigh Valley to take his roster spot is LHP Antonio Bastardo, who has allowed just 1 hit, and no earned runs in his 5 appearances in Lehigh Valley since being sent down a couple of weeks ago. Bastardo has struck out 8 in 3.2 innings or work for Lehigh Valley.
Update: The corresponding Lehigh Valley roster move has RHP Alex Concepcion been activated from the DL (turf toe).
One more notable transaction today, Reading reliever Chance Chapman was placed on the DL with a Right Oblique Strain. P Tyson Brummett, who has been exclusively in releif this year, and quite well for CLearwater was called up to Reading.
