-Jonathan Pettibone will start on Saturday, Ruben Amaro Jr. confirmed today. It had pretty much been a foregone conclusion that he would be the guy after David Buchanan started on Tuesday at Lehigh Valley. There were rumors of a bullpen game being a possibility, but you can take a guess as to why they decided against that.

-Freddy Galvis could be with the Phillies as early as Friday. Last week, Galvis began playing in extended spring games and has since played in two games with single-A Clearwater with everything checking out well.

-Mike Adams will throw again at Lehigh Valley on Saturday. Adams just worked back-to-back games, throwing 25 pitches in the second game. Amaro said he could be back by Monday if all is well. They’ll need his help provided his arm still works as the Phillies bullpen has been terrible overall.

-Remember Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez? Well, he’s throwing baseballs. MAG had a shoulder issue during spring training and is just now getting to about 90 feet. He’ll have to reach 120 feet without issue before they’ll put him on a mound.

-Darin Ruf could begin baseball activities next week as he recovers from an oblique injury.

    So who gets sent down when Adams comes back?
    B.J. Rosenberg may have a 0.00 ERA but batters are hitting .455 off him in his extremely small sample size of 2.1 innings, he also has no strikeouts in that time.
    Mario Hollands has yet to give up a hit in the same amount of innings.
    Sandberg says he likes Manship being able to go multiple innings, but they could send him to AAA and stretch him out as a starter again in case of injuries.

    Any thoughts?

      Me personally I would be in between manship and Hollands, but I would probably send down manship and continue to see what Hollands has…. I wasn’t real impressed with what I saw from manship last night…
