Happ scratched with oblique injury

The weekend of horrors for the Phillies continues. J.A. Happ suffred a mild strain of his oblique muscle on Saturday taking batting practice, and was scratched from his start today. Jamie Moyer will be starting against the Astros. Happ and assistant GM Chuck LaMar are stressing the word "mild," but as Clay Condrey demonstrated, oblique injuries can be nagging and always a cause for concern.

The weekend of horrors for the Phillies continues.  J.A. Happ suffred a mild strain of his oblique muscle on Saturday taking batting practice, and was scratched from his start today. Jamie Moyer will be starting against the Astros.  Happ and assistant GM Chuck LaMar are stressing the word "mild," but as Clay Condrey demonstrated, oblique injuries can be nagging and always a cause for concern.

Happ said he was hopeful to make his next start, but the next few days will determine that.  "It was enough where I though it would change my effectiveness, and right now that's not a good thing for me or us," Happ said.

LaMar called the injury "day-to-day."
