NEW YORK — The Philadelphia Phillies put outfielders Jay Bruce and Roman Quinn on the injured list Sunday, leaving the roster in a bind ahead of a busy stretch in the schedule.

Bruce re-aggravated a left quadriceps injury Saturday during a 5-1 loss to the New York Mets and was added to the 10-day injured list. Quinn was placed on the seven-day concussion injured list after slamming into the center field wall chasing a flyball Saturday.

Outfielder Kyle Garlick was recalled from the club’s alternate site, exhausting Philadelphia’s 40-man position players at their Triple-A park in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. Right-hander Mauricio Llovera was also called up.

The Phillies had won 10 of 12 entering Sunday and are in second place in the NL East, two games behind the Atlanta Braves. They begin a stretch Tuesday that includes five doubleheaders in 15 days as they make up games postponed by positive coronavirus tests early in this pandemic-shortened 60-game season.

Philadelphia has only four primary outfielders on the active roster – Bryce Harper, Adam Haseley, Andrew McCutchen and Garlick.

Outfielders Mikie Mahtook, Nick Martini and Mickey Moniak are on the Phillies’ 60-man roster but are not on the 40-man roster, which is full.

Philadelphia added catcher Henri Lartigue, third baseman Luke Williams and left-hander Jeff Singer to their 60-man player pool.
