Phils acquire AAA pitcher Mazone; callup forthcoming?

The Phillies have acquired minor league pitcher Brian Mazone from the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team confirmed. Mazone is a former Phillies farmhand, and the move could very well be intended to plug a hole in the Lehigh Valley rotation if/when Carlos Carrasco, Drew Carpenter or Rodrigo Lopez is recalled to start Thursday or Friday or whenever they decide to use a youngster. I wouldn't be surprised by an announcement on that later today. Mazone, 32, is 0-1 with an 8.44 ERA in triple-A this season.
