Seeking an offensive spark in Bryce Harper's absence, the Philadelphia Phillies called up slugger Darick Hall from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

The move comes one day after Hall launched his 20th home run of the season with the IronPigs.

A 26-year-old first baseman, Hall is batting .269 with 38 extra-base hits and 67 RBIs in 72 games this season with Lehigh Valley.

Hall has not appeared in a major league game. He has 118 home runs and 154 doubles in 631 games in the minors since Philadelphia drafted him in the 14th round in 2016.

Harper, a two-time National League MVP, is set to have surgery for a broken left thumb and expected to return before the end of the season.

Also on Wednesday, the Phillies placed infielder Johan Camargo on the 10-day injured list and shuffled right-hander James McArthur to the 60-day IL with a right elbow stress reaction.

Camargo's move is retroactive to Sunday.

Camargo, 28, is batting .230 with three homers and 15 RBIs in 47 games this season with the Phillies.
