Philadelphia Phillies Place 3B Michael Young On Bereavement List

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed third baseman Michael Young on the bereavement list after a death in his family. He is allowed to be on the list anywhere from 3-7 days without any disciplinary action.

To take his spot on the active roster, the Phillies have recalled infielder Cesar Hernandez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Expect Hernandez to get ample playing time at second base, shifting Fredy Galvis to third base with Young’s absence.

Hernandez, who is blessed with good speed, has a shot at making a quick impression as he already has swiped 15 bags in 48 games this season at Triple-A.

FFLockerRoom’s well-wishes go out to Young and his family for their loss.
