Phillies Place Golson On DL

Phillies center fielder Greg Golson is expected to miss about a month with a sprained left wrist that has him on the disabled list.

"The damaging thing is for his development," (Reading manager P.J. Forbes said). "That’s the thing that hurts. He loses out on 40, 50, 60 at-bats. That’s the thing that hurts is losing this time in development for him, because that’s what’s important."

Golson, 22, was batting .299/.335/.450 in 251 at-bats for Double-A Reading. A rough June dropped his OPS 89 points since the end of May, however, as Golson has gone 5-for-38 with no extra-base hits, one walk and 12 strikeouts this month.
