CSNPhilly.com reports that Charlie Manuel has decided to keep Kyle Kendrick in his regular rotation spot for Saturday’s game against the Mets. In addition, Danys Baez is back on the active roster, as reflected on the Phillies.com roster.
Beerleaguer: Kendrick would have been my pick. He’s pitched the Mets tough, he’s lasted this long in the rotation ... I’m just more comfortable at this point going with the known quantity, even if he's been batting practice since the end of July. Lefties and location have been the big killers, and he hasn’t pitched well at home. But against the Mets tomorrow, I like him more than Vance Worley. Speaking of going with the known quantity, Baez is back in, essentially replacing Scott Mathieson, who went on the DL yesterday. Mathieson hasn’t impressed, so here again, I’ll take the veteran sub-mediocrity over the unknown.
