The Phillies have placed lefty starting pitcher J.A. Happ on the 15-day disabled list with a sore left forearm. Happ has started 2 games for the Phillies this year and he is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP. Veteran righty Nelson Figueroa will take over in the starting rotation while Happ is out of action. Figueroa has pitched in 3 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this season and he is 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. I think Figueroa will do a decent job for the Phillies but he isn’t near as good as Happ who they hope can return in a couple of weeks. The Phillies have activated lefty reliever J.C. Romero off the D.L. to replace Happ on the pitching staff. He pitched in 5 games (3 starts) in A+AAA-ball this year on a rehab assignment and he was 0-1 with a 1.69 ERA and a 1.69 WHIP. The Phillies are glad to have Romero back giving them a dependable lefty in the pen.
