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.
