The Phillies optioned lefthander Raul Valdes to Lehigh Valley and called up righthander B.J. Rosenberg from the IronPigs.

Valdes may have sealed his fate when he allowed a three-run home run to Jason Kipnis in Wednesday’s 10-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians. The 32-year-old Valdes had a 7.65 ERA in 10 appearances this season for the Phillies.

Rosenberg was 1-3 with a 4.40 ERA in seven starts for Lehigh Valley this season. Last season he split time with Reading, Lehigh Valley and the Phillies. In 22 games for the Phillies he was 1-2 with a 6.12 ERA.
