Jenkins on the DL

The Phillies placed rightfielder Geoff Jenkins on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hip flexor. To take his place on the 25-man roster, the Phillies purchased the contract of infielder Andy Tracy from triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Jenkins was hitting .246 with nine homers and 29 RBIs in 284 at-bats.

Tracy, who hits lefthanded, was hitting .288 with 21 home runs and 84 RBIs for the IronPigs. He hit .224 with 13 homers and 41 RBIs in 263 at-bats in parts of three seasons with the Montreal Expos and Colorado Rockies. He hasn't been in the majors since the end of the 2004 season with the Rockies.
