2009 Chachi #41 Kyle Kendrick

Left-handed reliever Scott Eyre was placed on the DL Friday with an apparent calf injury. Kyle Kendrick temporarily ends his exile to Lehigh Valley with a spot on the roster. It's assumed Kyle will pitch as a long-man out of the bullpen.

Phillies debut: June 13, 2007
How acquired: Selected in the 7th round of the June 2003 draft.
2008 Postseason: Kyle was on the Phillies roster for all 162 games last year, but he did not make the team's Postseason roster.
Pictured: June 18, 2008 - Kyle pitches against the Red Sox in action from last year's Interleague play.

UPDATE, 11:15 - Well that didn't go so well. Kyle allowed 3 runs in the top of the 13th as the Phils fell to the Red Sox, 5-2. The Phillies struck out a total of 20 times in the game tonight and had only 5 hits.

You really can't win with only 5 hits...and 20 strikeouts

Jim said...

Agreed . . . You also can't win when you give up 5 runs in the first inning on 3 errors. I sense a Kent Tekulve card making an appearance tonight. I'm doing my best rain dance.

And now Kendrick is gone...why was he brought up when he's clearly not a reliever-type pitcher?

Jim said...

Excellent question . . . That move didn't make much sense to me. We'll see how long Tyler Walker sticks.

Almost as sad as when Bob Dernier was traded to the Cubbies.
