Happ listed as starter for Thursday


Quick update on the search for a (nother) fifth starter:

J.A. Happ is listed as the probable starter for Thursday, meaning whoever the Phillies call-up likely won't get the nod until Friday or Saturday. This opens the possibility that Rodrigo Lopez, who was a solid starter for the Orioles once upon a time and has pitched well in his last three starts at Lehigh Valley, could get the call. Conventional wisdom suggests it will be either Carlos Carrasco or Andrew Carpenter, but don't count out Lopez.

Jamie Moyer could start Friday on normal rest, so it isn't certain when the newbie will get the call.

More later. . .
