No DH callup for Friday

According to Charlie Manuel, the Phillies keep 13 pitchers on the roster tomorrow against righty A.J. Burnett at Yankee Stadium. If they call up a minor leaguer to DH against lefties Andy Pettitte and CC Sabathia Saturday and Sunday—and I would not at all be surprised if they do—they would likely make the move after Friday’s game. Matt Stairs or Greg Dobbs could DH tomorrow.
