Lefthander J.A. Happ has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 16, with a left forearm strain,  the Phillies announced. Happ had never been on the DL in his career.

Reliever J.C. Romero has been activated from the disabled list.

Happ, 27, is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA (10.1 IP) in two starts so far this season. He went 12-4, 2.93 ERA for the Phillies in 2009.

Romero was originally placed on the DL on April 3 (retroactive to March 26) after having surgery on his left elbow in the offseason. He made five rehab appearances, three with single-A Clearwater and two with triple-A Lehigh Valley, going 0-1 with a 1.69 ERA (1 ER, 5.1 IP).
