    Phillies place Joaquin Benoit (knee) on 10-day DL; recall Adam Morgan

    The Phillies on Saturday placed reliever Joaquin Benoit (knee) on the 10-day DL and have recalled Adam Morgan from AAA.

    In 23 appearances this season, Benoit has posted a 3.68 ERA in 22 innings.

    The 39-year-old Benoit signed a one-year deal with the Phillies during the offseason.

    Morgan has struggled out of the bullpen at both the big league and minor league levels. He gave up seven earned runs, including six home runs, in just nine innings for the Phillies this season. Things haven't gone much better at Triple A, posting a 4.67 ERA in 17 1/3 innings out of the bullpen.
