Kyle Kendrick Optioned To AAA

With the MLB trade deadline looming, the Phillies have made their first of what is likely to be a few roster moves. Kyle Kendrick has been sent to AAA and Andrew Carpenter has been called up in his place.

Kendrick’s next start would have been Saturday and as of now Carpenter would be the guy to make that start… however if the Phillies swing a trade in the next couple of days, the new guy could very well make that start. Todd Zolecki reported today that Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr implied that this was a real possibility. JA Happ, who is scheduled to start tonight in minors, could also be a candidate to make Saturday's start.
