CF,LF - PHI
Phillies outfielder Cristian Pache is in the starting lineup Thursday versus the Mets.
The Phillies are stacking right-handed bats against Mets lefty David Peterson on Thursday, giving Pache the starting nod in left field. Acquired just prior to Opening Day, Pache has had a nice year with a .266 average alongside two homers, one steal, and an .838 OPS in an injury-shortened 72 plate appearances.
Cristian Pache (elbow) has been activated from the 10-day IL Friday.
Pache has been out since July 9th after undergoing elbow surgery and dealing with hip tightness during his rehab assignment. He'll look to contribute off the bench as the Phillies look to lock down a playoff spot. He is hitting .327/.365/.592 this season.
Cristian Pache will have surgery on his right elbow to remove a screw that is causing irritation.
Pache was placed on the injured list Saturday, but will now likely be out for an extended period of time. Manager Rob Thomson stated that his recovery will take at least a few weeks but they hope to have him back on the field before the end of the season.
