PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies have placed third baseman Cody Asche on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
Asche was hitting .258 with eight doubles, four home runs and 18 RBIs in 40 games. Right-hander Justin De Fratus was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to replace him on the roster.
Asche injured his hamstring in Friday night's loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was replaced in the lineup by Cesar Hernandez.
De Fratus had a 7.20 ERA in four appearances for the Phillies earlier this season. He posted a 4.50 ERA in 16 innings at Lehigh Valley.
