Oswalt Activated, Worley Sent Down, Grilli to the DL

Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that Roy Oswalt has been activated from the DL and will be starting tomorrow against the St. Louis Cardinals.  To make room on the roster, the Phils sent Vance Worley back down to AAA Lehigh Valley.  Sources in Lehigh Valley say that Worley will be starting tomorrow night when the ‘Pigs start their series against the Yankees in Scranton. Worley could not have performed much better then he did for the Phils, both in the rotation and out of the ‘pen in his several weeks with the big club.

In another roster move, ‘Pigs pitcher Jason Grilli has been placed on the DL with back problems.  Grilli threw 12 pitches yesterday before removing himself from the game with a back problem.  With both Scott Mathieson and Mike Stutes in Philadelphia, the Lehigh Valley relief corps is very thin with Grilli’s placement on the DL.  Grilli had been unscored upon 11 of his last 12 outings, currently throwing ten consecutive scoreless innings.
