The Phillies will call up 25-year old righty starting pitcher Tyler Cloyd tonight to start against the Diamondbacks tonight.  He will get the first shot to replace Roy Halladay in the starting rotation.  Cloyd pitched in 6 games (all starts) in AAA-ball this year and he was 1-3 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  Cloyd got his first taste of the majors for the Phillies last year when he started 6 games in which he was 2-2 with a 4.91 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP.  Cloyd came into this season as the Phillies’ #21 prospect according to Baseball America and they hope that he’s up for the challenge.
