Worley looking to unseat Kendrick?

We're just about to get underway here at Citizens Bank Park, where the big question right now is how well rookie righthander Vance Worley will pitch, and whether he'll give the Phillies any reason to consider making a change to their rotation.

Kyle Kendrick is 1-3 with a 7.84 ERA in his last four starts. But right now, the young righty is scheduled to make only three more starts this season. His next one is on Saturday against the Mets at Citi Field, where he held New York to one run on six hits in 6.2 innings of a 3-1 Phillies win on Aug. 15.

His other two starts would likely come on Sept 18 and 28, one at home against the Nationals, and one on the road against the Nationals.


In addition to Worley, the Phillies have called up lefties Nate Robertson and Mike Zagurski.


Roy Oswalt will start the night cap of this day/night doubleheader against Anibal Sanchez, who has pitched well against the Phillies and who is 11-8 with a 3.14 ERA overall.
