The Express-Times' Greg Joyce reports the Phillies have recalled infielder Ronny Cedeno from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. No word on who is being sent down to make room for Cedeno on the Major League club but Cedeno will meet the team in Cincinnati.
Cedeno, 31, was batting .286/.327/.367 with one home run and 20 RBIs in 42 games for the Iron Pigs this season. He has really turned it on lately batting .392 with seven doubles and 15 RBIs over his last 21 games for the Iron Pigs.
I don't know what to make of this as he is a career .246 hitter in the majors but the Phillies could use a shakeup. Plus Cedeno has always been a plus fielder so it wouldn't hurt to have his glove coming off the bench. I just hope he wasn't called up because someone (Chase Utley or Jimmy Rollins) is secretly hurt.
