The Phillies have placed Pedro Feliz on the disabled list and recalled first baseman Mike Cervanek from Triple A.
Feliz has not played since Thursday because of a lower back injury. Greg Dobbs, baseball’s top pinch hitter this season, will take over as the everyday third baseman.
Dobbs, 30, is hitting .313 this season with three homers and 21 RBI in 131 at-bats.
Cervanek hit .320 for Lehigh Valley, the Phillies Triple-A affiliate. He had seven homers and 56 RBI in 388 ABs for the Iron Pigs.
