Reports out of Philadelphia are saying that catcher Dane Sardinha will be called up to Philadelphia from Lehigh Valley today to act as backup catcher in the short term, as Carlos Ruiz recovers from his back injury. Sardinha, 32, spent some time in Philadelphia last year but has struggled both offensively and defensively in the early going in Lehigh Valley, hitting just .088 in 41 at bats, and is without an RBI. He provides emergency relief should Brian Schneider go down. It appears as if catcher Joel Naughton will join Lehigh Valley from extended Spring Training to fill the Lehigh Valley roster void.
