Lefthander J.A. Happ will throw on the side at Citizens Bank Park tomorrow afternoon before the team leaves for Atlanta. How he fares during that session will determine whether he'll be placed on the disabled list with forearm tightness.

Manager Charlie Manuel said this morning that, because of the open date tomorrow before the team opens a 9-game trip to Atlanta, Arizona and San Francisco, it would be possible to skip him one time around the rotation.

Concern first began to surface during Happ's last start, Thursday against the Nationals, when there was a noticeable dip in his velocity.

The Phillies have listed Kyle Kendrick as their probable starter for Tuesday night at Turner Field but have not announced their pitcher for the final two games.
