2009 Chachi #35 Sergio Escalona

So much for Andrew Carpenter's roster spot . . . After his start last night, Andrew was optioned back down to AAA Lehigh and pitcher Sergio Escalona was recalled from AA Reading. The move means the Phils are carrying 13 pitchers on their roster and only 4 bench players. I'd expect Sergio to stick around through the next series with the Reds and then the Phils will recall another bat to help during upcoming Interleague play.

Phillies debut: May 17, 2009
How acquired: Signed by the Phillies as an amateur free agent, May 25, 2004
Pictured: For now, this is the picture from Sergio's 2008 Lakewood BlueClaws' card.

UPDATE, May 22, 2009: The new picture for Sergio is from May 17, 2009, following the Phillies' 8-6 victory over the Nationals.
