Pedro starts Wednesday, Moyer to pen

The Phillies have announced that Pedro Martinez will start Wednesday. They have also told Jamie Moyer that he will be headed to the bullpen. Though the team has long maintained that Moyer's stuff was not suited for a relief role, Happ's recent dominance left them with little choice but to make this move.

The Phillies have announced that Pedro Martinez will start Wednesday. They have also told Jamie Moyer that he will be headed to the bullpen.  Though the team has long maintained that Moyer's stuff was not suited for a relief role, Happ's recent dominance left them with little choice but to make this move.

In three rehab starts, Martinez was 1-1 with a 5.11 ERA, and 16 strikeouts in 12.1 innings.

Happ will start tomorrow and Cliff Lee Thursday, a full week after his previous start.

Also, the Phils activated Chad Durbin from the DL and optioned Rodrigo Lopez to Lehigh Valley.
