Benson Pitching In Spring Training Game

According to Rotowire (via the Inquiurer), Kris Benson is pitching today in an extended Spring Training game, and will do so again Tuesday. Right now a tentative return date for Benson is somewhere near late-June.

This news is nice to hear, but it won’t change what currently ails the Phillies rotation. It’s essential for Brett Myers to start pitching like a top-tier starter again; once that is taken care of (I still believe it could be possible), the Phils can address the No. 5 starter situation. JA Happ is still my bet to take that role (and soon), but Benson would be a welcome addition if Happ were to fall in a tryout.
