PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The Philadelphia Phillies placed backup catcher Rod Barajas on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a groin strain.
Barajas, 31, signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Phillies in the offseason, but has served primarily as the backup to the younger Carlos Ruiz. Chris Coste, who was recalled from the minors in June, has seen increased playing time at catcher.
Barajas has hit .214 in 43 games this season.
The Phillies called up right-hander Clay Condrey from Triple-A Ottawa to replace Barajas on the roster and transferred right-hander Francisco Rosario to the 60-day disabled list.
Barajas is the 13th Philly to spend time on the disabled list this season.
