The Phillies have selected the contract of outfielder Steve Susdorf to fill a void on the big league roster left by outfielder Domonic Brown, who was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Through 70 games this year with the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the lefty batting California native is batting .335 with 13 doubles, a triple, a home run and 25 RBI.  In six pro seasons, the 6-foot-1 190-pounder has posted a .304 average along with an .802 OPS.

The 27-year-old Susdorf, who has 196 minor league games under his belt in left field, 159 games in right field and 20 games at first base, was the Phils' 19th round draft selection in 2009 out of Fresno State.

In 2011, the Susdorf spoke exclusively with PhoulBallz.com about how he looked up to 13-time All-Star Ken Griffey Jr. and how he admired Chase Utley in an interview that can be heard by clicking here.

Brown, the Phillies' All-Star left fielder, was injured on a diving play in the outfield in Tuesday's contest at St. Louis.

In order to clear room on the team's 40-man roster, the Phillies placed LHP Jeremy Horst on the 60-day disabled list.

In a separate move, the Phillies also announced the released of pitcher Carlos Zambrano on Thursday.

Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol
