Happ Leaves For "Precautionary Reasons"

Phillies left-hander J.A .Happ, who missed his last two starts with a strained right intercostal muscle, has left the game after three innings for what the Phillies termed “precautionary reasons.”

Happ appeared to tweak something — the same muscle? — when Nate McLouth grounded out in the third inning. After a lengthy discussion on the mound and after throwing a couple practice pitches, Happ remained in the game. He allowed a solo home run to Martin Prado before getting out of the inning.

We will have more info after the game.

The further concern with Happ has been bad news for him but it’s given Kyle Kendrick a new purpose in his Phillies uniform! He’s finally back in the bigs and has two wins in a week to add to his win totals for a Phillies pitcher.

If anything, it gives Kyle a second chance after he looked so promising just a short while ago, then he became a liability that no one seemed to want to have anything to do with. Can the Phillies manage to continue to cultivate him or does he become a nice trade bait at the end of the season?


What’s the word on Carlos?

Kendrick looked remarkably well for someone defenestrated last September.
