Phillies Recall Danny Sandoval

Posted by Brian Michael, Sat, July 29, 2006 05:21 PM | Comments: 0

The Phillies recalled Danny Sandoval from Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre and will have him in the lineup against Dontrelle Willis and the Marlins tonight.  It will be his first big league start and Abraham Nunez will get the nod at third.  Sandoval is expected to bat eighth and play shortstop while Jimmy Rollins recovers from a grade 1 strain to his right hamstring.  While with the Red Barons, Danny hit .256 with two homers, 17 doubles, and 39 RBI in 90 games this year. The 27-year old right-hander made a brief appearance with the Phillies last season and went 0-2 in 3 games with a run scored.  Check back later and we’ll let you know how it goes tonight.
