The hits keep coming this week. After releasing Geoff Jenkins, the Phillies have informed Chan Ho Park that he will be their fifth starter.  J.A. Happ will compete with Gary Majewski, Bobby Mosebach and Jack Taschner for a bullpen spot.  A visably upset Happ has so far declined to speak with the media.

Also, Ruben Amaro Jr. said that the team had spoken with Gary Sheffield's representative.  Sheffield, 40, was released by the Tigers today.  At the moment, Miguel Cairo is the 25th man on the roster, but Amaro made clear that he was still looking at other alternatives for that job.
