Friday Starter Candidates: Happ, Mazone, Durbin

A lot of news today. Lots to update.

The Phillies will decide today who gets the start Friday against the Mets. It won’t be Carlos Carrasco, who suffered tightness in his right shoulder during his start last night.

Word is the spot will either go to James Happ, Brian Mazone or Chad Durbin.

It’s got to be Happ. He’s proven himself down in the Minors and deserves at least one start. He might not be the long-term solution, but there are no other options, especially with Carrasco going down. Mazone is 31; why bring him up when you have a legitimate younger guy waiting?
