Phils outright Cedeno to make room for O'Sullivan

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies outrighted infielder Ronny Cedeno to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Braves. In a corresponding roster move, the club selected the contract of right-hander Sean O'Sullivan, the starting pitcher for Game 2.

The Phillies then optioned right-hander Luis Garcia following Game 2. He had been the team's 26th man for the doubleheader. A rule in the Collective Bargaining Agreement allows clubs a 26-man roster for day-night doubleheaders that are scheduled at least 48 hours in advance.

The Phillies will play with a four-man bench Sunday and going forward, unless they make a move beforehand. Cedeno started at shortstop in Game 1, only his second start this season. The veteran appeared in seven games with the Phillies and went hitless in nine at-bats after being promoted from Lehigh Valley on June 6.

O'Sullivan had a 4.31 ERA over 15 starts with Lehigh Valley this season. He allowed eight hits, four runs and struck out three in 5 2/3 innings in the 5-1 loss to the Braves in Game 2.
