With no flights available out of Syracuse or nearby Rochester, Bohn rented a Nissan Frontier and made the 250-mile trip. He left at 3 p.m. ET and arrived in time for Sunday's first pitch against the Mets.
At 6-foot-5 with long blond hair, Bohn has many colorful nicknames, including Thor and Ivan Drago. The outfielder should be with the Phillies until Shane Victorino returns from a strained right calf injury. Victorino is scheduled to start a rehab assignment with Class A Clearwater on Tuesday.
Bohn had a cup of coffee with Seattle in 2006, and said it didn't seem like that
"Not really, but there's definitely a gap in between," Bohn said. "It feels good to be back up here. I just want to play baseball. If I get called up, I get called up. That's great if it happens, but I'm completely happy playing Triple-A ball. As long as I have a job somewhere."
