Park named 5th starter; Happ will compete for bullpen spot

Sorry, but something got lost in translation between here and Clearwater. Chan Ho Park has been named the Phillies' fifth starter. But lefthander J.A. Happ's future is still up in the air. He will be one of four pitchers competing for two spots in the bullpen. The others are righthanders Gary Majewski and Robert Mosebach and lefthander Jack Taschner.

Park has a Grapefruit League ERA of 2.53. He’s struck out 25, while walking only two, in 21 1/3 innings.

Happ has as ERA of 3.15. He’s given up 18 hits in 20 innings, walking six and striking out 14.

More details to come ...
