Detwiler going on DL, Haren to replace

Still experiencing the same lower back discomfort that nearly sidelined him a week ago, Ross Detwiler will have to make another trip to the disabled list.

Manager Davey Johnson said Detwiler didn't appear to be 100 percent healthy during his between-starts bullpen session earlier today. The left-hander was due to take the mound Monday in Philadelphia, but Johnson said the club doesn't want to take a chance and will place him on the DL.

"He's a tough customer," Johnson said. "But he understood the value of getting by this thing. He got a whole lot of treatment today, and so hopefully we can get by. He'll be good coming back after the [All-Star] break."

Detwiler already missed a month earlier this season with a strained oblique muscle. This back issue is unrelated, but it first cropped up during his June 28 start in New York.

If it means Kid Jordan gets another start or two, I'm fine with it.

Danny Boy ... no so much.

Haren starting Monday at Citizens Bank Park.

Somehow, that doesn't seem like friendly confines for a guy who's already coughed up 19 gopher balls.
