J.A. Happ has been activated from the disabled list and optioned to triple-A Lehigh Valley. Happ will report Wednesday and throw a bullpen session for the IronPigs.

It was an expected move, but still a shocking fall for Happ, who was the runner up for National League rookie of the year in 2009 and won 12 games. Charlie Manuel, Rich Dubee and Ruben Amaro Jr. all met with Happ before he left Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday. Dubee said Happ was disappointed.

"Some of our people who have seen him pitch say he isn't quite there yet," Manuel said.

LeBron James is expected to announce Thursday night where he will play next season. Which of the following best reflects how you feel about it?
I hope he goes to the Knicks or Nets, so I can watch him play against the 76ers in the Atlantic Division.
I hope he goes to the Clippers in the West, so we won’t have to play him often.
At this point, I could not care less.
