Philadelphia placed infielder Johan Camargo on the 10-day injured list Tuesday among a series of roster moves.

Camargo has a right knee strain and his IL designation is retroactive to Monday.

The Phillies also recalled outfielder Matt Vierling and selected the contract of infielder/outfielder Scott Kingery from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and placed right-hander Zack Wheeler on the paternity list.

Camargo, 28, is batting .246 with three homers and 15 RBIs in 44 games this season. Defensively, he has started games at shortstop and first, second and third base.

Wheeler, 32, is 4-3 with a 3.14 ERA through 10 starts. He has struck out 67 and walked 15 batters in 57 1/3 innings.

Vierling, 25, opened the season with Philadelphia and batted .170 with two doubles and four RBIs in 23 games.

Kingery, 28, had season-ending surgery on his right shoulder last July. He hit .185 with one homer and six RBIs in 16 games this season at Triple-A.
