Phillies closer Jose Contreras has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a flexor pronator strain in his throwing arm. The 39-year-old right-hander, who replaced Brad Lidge as closer, will reportedly leave the team and return to Philadephia for an MRI. He was 5-for-5 in save opportunities, appearing in eight games. Right-hander Mike Stutes has been called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, where he appeared in seven games (10 IP) and pitched to a 1.80 ERA. Ryan Madson, who has been limited due to general soreness lately, will take over as closer, and it would appear that Antonio Bastardo, who earned the save today and struck out all three batters he faced on Saturday, could slot into a set-up role. More on the injury situation, and the Phillies' sweep of the Padres, on Monday.
