The Philadelphia Phillies are dealing with injury issues.
The team has placed Mike Adams on the disabled list after dealing with back spasms, Carlos Ruiz was placed on the DL with a Grade 2 hamstring sprain, and Ryan Howard is listed as day-to-day with inflammation in his left knee.
Howard received a cortisone shot on Sunday.
Humberto Quintero was called up to be the backup catcher in Ruiz's absence. Tyler Cloyd will be recalled from Triple-A now that Ruiz is placed on the DL.
The Phillies are now dealing with their first significant injuries of the season. Will their depth be able to fill the void?
