Phillies place Revere on DL with broken foot

The Philadelphia Phillies placed center fielder Ben Revere on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right foot Sunday and reinstated catcher Erik Kratz from the DL.

Revere sustained the injury in the 11th inning of Saturday's opener of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox when he fouled a pitch off the inside of his right foot.

Revere finished the at-bat by grounding into a game-ending double play, but X- rays taken after the game revealed the severity of the injury.

Revere extended his hit streak to 10 games with a 2-for-6 effort in the setback to push his season average to .305.

The injury comes at a tough time for the 25-year-old speedster, who entered Saturday's twinbill batting a red-hot .347 since the end of April.

Kratz, meanwhile, hasn't played since June 8 when he sustained a medial meniscus tear in his left knee in the ninth inning of a 4-3 loss to Milwaukee.

The veteran backstop was batting .229 with eight homers and 22 RBI through 43 games prior to the injury.
