DENVER -- Phillies right-hander Roy Oswalt made what is expected to be his final rehab start Monday. He gave up seven hits and two runs in six innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, with two walks and four strikeouts. Oswalt got 10 outs on ground balls.
Oswalt has been on the 15-day disabled list with lower back inflammation since June 24 -- his second such stint on the DL this season.
He is expected to go back into the Phillies' rotation this weekend in place of Kyle Kendrick, who is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Rockies. Kendrick, who has made 10 starts and 15 relief appearances this season, will go back to the bullpen.
