Reliever Raul Valdes was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of a strained right hip. He will be eligible to return July 24. Valdes' roster spot was filled by lefty Joe Savery, who will be in Denver for the opening of the Phillies' three-game series against the Colorado Rockies.

Savery is 0-2 with a 5.87 ERA in 17 appearances with the Phillies. The Phillies are 0-17 in his appearances.
