ROSTER MOVES

June 14: LHP recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley
Falter gives the Phillies length coming out of the bullpen. It is possible he piggybacks right-hander Spencer Howard’s starts, allowing the Phillies to use left-hander Ranger Suárez in more high-leverage situations. “I don’t really consider Spencer an opener, but we have to watch [his innings],” Phillies manager Joe Girardi said. “[Falter] gives me another guy to do that with.”

June 14: RHP optioned to Triple-A
De Los Santos pitched a scoreless inning on Sunday in a 7-0 win over the Phillies. He has a 9.00 ERA in four appearances this season, but three of his four appearances are scoreless.

June 12: Optioned C to Triple-A Lehigh Valley
Marchan, the Phillies' No. 4 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, made one big league appearance since being called up on June 10. Marchan came in as a defensive substitution in an extra-inning, 5-4 win over the Braves on June 10 and scored the game-tying run in the 10th inning. He has hit .231 in 13 at-bats in the Majors this season.

June 12: Optioned CF to Triple-A Lehigh Valley
The Phillies optioned Haseley to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following his reinstatement from the restricted list on Saturday. Haseley had been away from the club for personal reasons. The 25-year-old hit .190 in 21 at-bats in April.

INJURY UPDATES
10-day IL

SS (right elbow inflammation)
Expected return: Possibly this weekend in San Francisco or next week vs. Washington
The Phillies placed Gregorius on the 10-day injured list on May 18 (retroactive to May 14). He began a rehab assignment June 9 with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. After going 3-for-3 with a double and homer on June 10, Gregorius did not play the next two days because of stiffness and swelling in the elbow. Joe Girardi said that Gregorius is scheduled to resume his rehab assignment on June 15. Asked whether Gregorius could possibly deal with this issue the entire season, Girardi said he hoped not. “I can’t really tell you, but it popped back up,” he said. Gregorius continues to feel something in his elbow on certain swings, Girardi said. (Last updated: June 14)

RHP Brandon Kintzler (neck strain)
Expected return:
TBD
Phillies manager Joe Girardi said that Kintzler’s neck has been bothering him for a while, so they figured now is a good time to try to remedy it. His stint is retroactive to June 7. He has not started to throw in bullpen sessions yet. (Last updated: June 14)

LHP (back spasms)
Expected return:
TBD
The Phillies placed Moore on the 10-day IL on May 22 (retroactive to May 21). He is scheduled to make a fifth rehab start with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. (Last updated: June 14)

OF (left Achilles tendon)
Expected return: 2022
An MRI exam confirmed that Quinn suffered a ruptured left Achilles tendon on May 29 at Tropicana Field. The Phillies said on May 31 that Quinn will have surgery later that week. The expected recovery time for Quinn is nine to 12 months. (Last updated: May 31)

LHP (Tommy John surgery)
Expected return:
Summer 2022
Romero landed on the IL on May 6 with what the Phillies called a sprained left forearm. He had Tommy John surgery on May 25, according to a photo Romero posted on Twitter. It can take 12-18 months to completely recover from Tommy John, meaning Romero is likely to be sidelined until at least next summer. (Last updated: May 26)
