Possible Post-Break Rotation

The Phillies have not announced their rotation following the All-Star break, but here is one that makes sense:

Right-hander Kyle Kendrick opens the second half July 19 against the Mets at Citi Field, Cole Hamels pitches July 20 and Cliff Lee pitches July 21. Jonathan Pettibone then pitches July 23 in St. Louis and John Lannan pitches July 24.

This would give Hamels an extra day of rest following Sunday’s start against the White Sox. Lee would get normal rest following his expected appearance Tuesday in the All-Star Game. And it would split up Lee and Lannan with Pettibone.
