Kendrick Is Out, Optioned to Minors

The Phillies have just optioned righthander Kyle Kendrick to Minor League camp.

He had been a candidate for the fifth starter’s job.

Kendrick, who Rich Dubee called the favorite for the job entering spring training, went 1-3 with a 9.20 ERA this spring and fell far behind J.A. Happ and Chan Ho Park. Carlos Carrasco, also a candidate for the job, remains in camp, but he is expected to start the season in Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Here is some of what Kendrick said:

“How am I feeling? At first I was upset, but I know what I need to do. I’m going to go down there and work on my secondary pitches. I’ll be back.”

“I see myself as a big-league pitcher.”

“I didn’t show my offspeed stuff early enough. It was a little erratic at times. It just needs to get better. I know I need to get better and the things I need to do . I’ll go down there with a clear mind and get better and I’ll be back.”


The Phillies also optioned Lou Marson and Brad Harman. … Jamie Moyer allowed eight hits, three runs and one walk in 5 2/3 innings in a Minor League game at the Carpenter Complex. He struck out three.
