The Philadelphia Phillies placed outfielder Odubel Herrera on the 10-day injured list on Saturday with tendonitis in his left ankle.

In a corresponding move, the Phillies recalled right-hander JD Hammer from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Herrera, 29, was ruled out on Tuesday and Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs due to persistent ankle and wrist injuries. He played Thursday, going 1 for 5 with two strikeouts in the Phillies’ 8-0 win over the Cubs.
