Phillies Claim Robles

The Phillies are desperate for infield help, so today they claimed Oscar Robles off waivers from the San Diego Padres.

He is headed to triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Robles has hit .260 with five homers and 36 RBIs in parts of three seasons with the Dodgers and Padres. He hit .216 with one homer and 10 RBIs in 13 games this season for triple-A Portland. Robles can play second, third and shortstop, which the Phillies need.
