Looks like it will be Moyer, Kendrick, Hamels

Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee said today that Jamie Moyer will make the first start after the All Star break against Florida in Miami. Kyle Kendrick will follow him Saturday. Cole Hamels will then likely start Sunday, though that isn't yet set and stone. Dubee was noncomittal on the final two spots in the rotation, though he did say Brett Myers will get another start in the minors. Myers pitched Saturday night, so his next turn would likely be Thursday, when the IronPigs host the Red Barons.

Will it be Adam Eaton, who has allowed 16 runs in his last 6 1/3 innings? Or will it be J.A. Happ, whom Dubee and Charlie Manuel would love to get another start?

We shall see.
