A tough day for the Reading pitching staff with both Mike Cisco and Jason Stephens placed on the DL, both with right elbow inflammation. Cisco, a starter is 1-3 with a 3.68 ERA in his 4 starts, to go along with a WHIP of 1.08. Stephens has thrown 13.1 scoreless innings to start the year all in relief. Jason Anderson was sent from Lehigh Valley to Reading to take one of the two roster spots in Reading. Lehigh Valley needed to make a move after Antonio Bastardo was returned to Lehigh Valley from Philadelphia.
