PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies placed outfielder Brandon Marsh on the 10-day injured list on Monday with a strained right hamstring.

The NL East leaders also put infielder Kody Clemens on the 10-day IL with low back spasms. Outfielder David Dahl and utilityman Weston Wilson were promoted from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and right-hander Michael Rucker was transferred to the 60-day IL.

Marsh, 26, got hurt during Sunday night’s 5-4 loss to St. Louis. He is batting .265 with six homers and 26 RBIs in 52 games.

“It’s a mild hamstring strain,” Marsh said on Monday. “It’s a little early right now. We’re still trying to treat and assess it. There’s no timetable but we’re looking for a pretty quick turnaround.”

The 30-year-old Dahl was in the starting lineup for the opener of a three-game series against NL Central-leading Milwaukee. It was Dahl’s first major league game since April 4, 2023, for San Diego against Arizona.

Dahl was selected by Colorado in the first round of the 2012 amateur draft. He agreed to a minor league contract with Philadelphia in February.

Dahl was batting .340 with 12 homers and 26 RBIs at Lehigh Valley.

“He’s been swinging the bat very well,” Phillies manager Rob Thomson said. “He’s been hitting home runs and getting on base and playing well defensively. We’ll see what he’s got.”
