B.J. Rosenberg gets his second crack with the Phils today as he becomes the beneficiary of an adjustment within the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Per the CBA, teams can now carry a 26th player on days where there are split-admission, day-night doubleheaders at least two days after the game was originally scheduled to be played. Rosenberg allowed 2 runs each in both appearances he had, putting his ERA at 21.60 in 1 2/3 IP, exceeding his equally monstrous 16.20 K/9 IP. Rosenberg has a 1.52 ERA and 11.42 K/9 IP for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
