As Tweeted moments ago from the Phillies' clubhouse, J.A. Happ has been inserted into the Phillies' starting rotation, replacing Chan Ho Park.

Happ will start Saturday against the Yankees at the new Yankee Stadium.

Happ is 2-0 with a 2.49 earned run average out of the bullpen. He had been scheduled to start Saturday, but a 12-inning game Friday night forced the Phillies to use him in relief.

Park, who won the fifth starter's job in spring training, has a 7.08 earned run average and is coming off his worst start of the season Sunday, when he did not get out of the second inning.
