PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies lefty J.A. Happ strolled through the clubhouse Sunday and found his locker. He had nothing new to report. "Still waiting," he said. "I haven't heard anything." The almost daily game of figuring out the rotation continued Sunday, with the Phillies yet to name a pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Braves. Happ is one of three candidates, along with Kyle Kendrick and Adam Eaton.
Pitching coach Rich Dubee and manager Charlie Manuel appear reluctant to give the ball to Kendrick or Eaton at this point, making Happ the more likely option. The rookie lefty has a 3.27 ERA in two starts for the Phillies this season.
