Kendrick Optioned, Carpenter Recalled
The Phillies optioned Kyle Kendrick to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and recalled Andrew Carpenter to take his place on the 25-man roster.
Carpenter is 7-6 with a 3.41 ERA in 18 starts this season with the IronPigs.
It is possible Carpenter takes Kendrick’s place in the rotation. But here’s another possibility: the Phillies make Carpenter a long man in the bullpen until J.A. Happ rejoins the rotation in five days.
Or the Phillies make a trade for starting pitching help.
