Alec Bohm, who the Phillies selected with the eighth overall pick in this year’s draft, went on the DL Saturday and hasn’t played since last Monday. Bohm was hit by a pitch in the left leg in Monday’s game and was down in the batter’s box for some time and hasn’t played since.

It was reported by Mitch Ruppert of the Williamsport Sun-Gazette that Bohm saw a specialist in Philadelphia on Thursday and returned to Williamsport the following day wearing a walking boot. Apparently, the ball hit Bohm in the knee and caught a nerve which is causing problems for Bohm.

Bohm, who turns 22 on August 3rd, started his professional career with the GCL Phillies but played just four games there and went 6-for-12 (.500) before being bumped up to Williamsport. In his 14 games with the Crosscutters, he has hit .192 (10-for-52) and has a .288 on-base percentage.

There is no immediate timetable for Bohm’s return.
