The Philadelphia Phillies have placed catcher Erik Kratz on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury.

The team filled his spot on the roster Sunday by promoting catcher Steven Lerud from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Kratz was hurt while running to first in the ninth inning in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Brewers. Manage Charlie Manuel said "Kratz heard his knee pop. It's not good."

Kratz was hitting .229 with eight home runs and 22 RBIs in 43 games.
