The Phillies made a pair of roster moves this morning, recalling lefthander Sergio Escalona from Double A Reading and selecting the contract of first baseman Andy Tracy from Triple A Lehigh Valley.
To make room on the 40-man roster for Tracy, righthander Rodrigo Lopez was released.
Escalona is being recalled for the sixth time this season. In six games with the Phillies, he is 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA and has limited lefthanded hitters to a .143 average (1-for-7). Escalona finished the minor league portion of his season at 2-3 with 14 saves and a 3.13 ERA in a combined 47 games between Reading and Lehigh Valley.
