As we noted the other day, Severino Gonzalez had his contract selected by the Phillies in order to make tonight’s start in St Louis, and his MLB debut. We wish Seve luck!
To make room, Hector Neris was re-optioned back to the IronPigs. He’ll reclaim uniform number 38.
The Phillies also added Jon Pettibone to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster. This is somewhat disappointing as I was working under the impression that he’d build arm strength and return to the IronPigs rotation around May 1–which is coming up.
Expect another roster move soon, as the Phillies will need to decide what to do with Dom Brown following tonight’s game. The opinion here in Kram’s Korner is that they need to activate him and let him play through any bad outcomes. Yes, it’s ugly at times, but then so is Grady Sizemore.
Here’s a printable roster:
See you at the park (eventually),
