Revolving Door for Phillies Starters
Cole Hamels is sick, so he can't make his start tonight.
Call up Tyler Cloyd, International League Pitcher of the Year, and he makes a spot start in OGP's place.
Todd Zolecki reports Vance Worley has finally be shutdown for the season, hits the DL to make room on the 25-man roster for Cloyd. The Vanimal will have surgery in 7-10 days to remove "loose bodies" (aka- bone chips) from his elbow. Cloyd's official audition for the 2013 starting rotation begins now...
I hope he pitches well, because if he gets shelled, all his critics are going to be like- "Told you he was a fluke, all luck. Not going to be any good in the Majors."
