The Philadelphia Phillies placed starting pitcher Aaron Harang on the 15-day disabled list Thursday afternoon with plantar fasciittis of his left foot. Harang fell to 4-11 Wednesday night, losing his eighth straight game thanks to his worst outing of the season. Harang gave up eight runs on a career-high 14 hits in a 9-5 loss to the Brewers. The corresponding move by the Phillies was to activate starter Chad Billingsley from the disabled list. Billingsley pitched for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs three times on a rehab stint, going 1-1 with a 5.07 ERA. The Phillies host the Brewers at 6:30 tonight and will try to avoid a four-game sweep.
