The Phillies have optioned LHP Joe Savery to AAA Lehigh Valley. Savery, who was used sparingly was 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA in his 8 innings of work. Rumors are circulating about the call up associated with Savery’s departure, along with the possibility of two additional roster moves. According to the Twitter account of Michael Schwimer, LHP Jake Diekman, LHP Raul Valdes and 3B Hector Luna are all headed to Philadelpia for their game Friday against the Padres.
The likely corresponding roster moves would be C Erik Kratz being optioned and RHP Brian Sanches get re-assigned as well.
Clearly Diekman would be the call up most likely to make a quick impact with the problems in the Phils ‘pen and his success thus far in AAA during the early part of the season.
