On Tuesday Kyle Kendrick was sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and is now expecting to be traded along with a few other players. Andrew Carpenter was called up to originally replace Kendrick, but, reported first by us, Carpenter was put in the bullpen leaving the fifth starter spot wide open.
With that trade rumors went flying.
Included in the trade rumors include; Jayson Werth, Kyle Kendrick, and J.A. Happ.
The Phillies have expressed interest in Starting Pitchers Dan Haren, Roy Oswalt, and Ben Sheets according to multiple sources.
According to FanHouse.com the ball is in (Roy) Oswalt's court to waive his no trade clause and join the Phillies.
During the Phillies/Cardinals game, Jamie Moyer left in the first inning. After the game, Charlie Manuel said that Moyer was definitely going on the DL and described his injury as Happ-like in the beginning of the season. That injury caused Happ months to recover from.
Manuel also stated that Happ will return to the team after Moyer is placed on the DL.
Moyer said, "I expect to pitch again. When that is I have no idea."
This leaves the Phillies with a big move that they have to make in the upcoming days. Rumors are now swirling about what the Phillies are going to do. As always, we will keep you updated.
