Brody Colvin has gotten the callup from High A Clearwater to AA Reading and is in line to take the rotation spot of recently promoted Jonathan Pettibone. It has been a bumpy road for Colvin who was removed from the Clearwater rotation for a time, presumably to get his head straight after struggling consistently for two months. Colvin, a 7th round pick in 2009, has made 18 starts this year and is 4-6 with a 4.48 ERA in 18 starts. His WHIP as a starter is 1.57 and the opposition is hitting .284 against him. On the brighter side of the equation, Colvin over his last 8 starts is 2-2 with a 3.74 ERA but even during that time period his WHIP is a high 1.51 and the opposition is hitting .301.
Somewhere Adam Morgan, Austin Wright and Jesse Biddle are shaking their heads.
