PHILADELPHIA — Darren Daulton was the teammate everyone respected and the player all Philadelphia Phillies fans adored.

A day after Daulton died following a four-year battle with brain cancer, the city and franchise mourned the loss of perhaps the greatest leader to wear those red pinstripes.

“Darren Daulton the ballplayer was and always will be synonymous with great leadership and winning. Darren Daulton the person was and always will be synonymous with caring and compassion,” former teammate and longtime radio analyst Larry Andersen said Monday.

Daulton, nicknamed “Dutch” since his childhood, was a three-time All-Star catcher during 141/2 seasons with the Phillies. He was the cleanup hitter for the improbable 1993 NL championship team, which lost to Toronto in six games in the World Series after finishing last the previous season.

Daulton controlled a clubhouse that included wild characters such as Lenny Dykstra, Mitch Williams, John Kruk, Pete Incaviglia and others. He was the man along a stretch of lockers called “Macho Row.”

“I played with several tough dudes in my career, but Dutch was the toughest,” Dykstra said. “Catchers characteristically are the ‘coach on the field.’ Dutch was more than that. He was our anchor and our leader, ensuring that our focus was always between the lines when we played. His stewardship and incredible toughness were the inspiration for that magical year in 1993, when we put it all together, and made baseball fun again in Philly.”

TIGERS: Detroit called up infielder Jeimer Candelario from Triple-A Toledo to fill in after putting Jose Iglesias on the bereavement list. Detroit acquired Candelario from the Cubs last week in the trade that sent Justin Wilson and Alex Avila to Chicago.

NATIONALS: Right-handed pitcher Stephen Strasburg (elbow) threw a bullpen session Sunday and “is continuing to progress,” Manager Dusty Baker said.

The Nationals activated left-hander Gio Gonzalez from the paternity list and optioned right-hander Erick Fedde to Triple-A Syracuse. Gonzalez’s wife gave birth to a boy.

REDS: Catcher Devin Mesoraco went on the paternity list. Right-handed reliever Austin Brice was called up from Triple-A Louisville.

PADRES: San Diego recalled right-hander Carter Capps from Triple-A El Paso.

He started the eighth and loaded the bases ahead of Patrick Kivlehan’s grand slam off Phil Maton.

The Padres got Capps from Miami last season while he was recovering from Tommy John surgery.

San Diego also optioned left-hander Buddy Baumann, who gave up Sean Rodriguez’s game-ending homer in the 12th for Pittsburgh’s 5-4 win on Sunday.

Catcher Hector Sanchez was available to pinch hit on Monday. He was hit in the helmet by a foul ball on Saturday night and was checked for a concussion.
