Rosenberg Recalled, Valdes Optioned – Phillies Nation

Rosenberg Recalled, Valdes Optioned to all the usual suspect beat writers and the Phillies, LHP Raul Valdes has been optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and RHP B.J. Rosenberg has been called to take his place. Valdes was at best mediocre in 2013 and at worst completely ineffective, with a 7.65 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP, allowing 10.8 H/9 IP.

Rosenberg, 27, has been mildly effective as a starter this year for the IronPigs, going 1-3 with a 4.30 ERA in seven starts. As Matt Provence points out, Rosenberg was sharp in his most recent start, picking up the win after seven scoreless innings pitched on 5/12 against Durham.

    Does anyone think they might give Rosenberg a start next Tuesday if Lannan is still not back? As Ian points out, he was a starter in LV. Can he keep us in a ball game for 4 or 5 innings?

      I absolutely believe that this is the case – thank you for pointing it out! Cloyd just gave up 7 ER, including 4 HR, in 3.1 IP in his last start so I think this is where they are headed.

    Didn’t Valdes have a good outing his last 2-inning appearance?

    Valdes is down where he belongs. Love to see us get rid of Durbin. Why not give Adam Morgan a start and a shot? Got nothing to lose. Lol.

      If he was lights out in AAA and had nothing left to prove, maybe. But he has a 7.93 ERA in his last 5 starts (20 runs in 22.2 IP).

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog
    in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
