Philadelphia Phillies SP Jonathan Pettibone is expected to be called up to make the start Saturday, April 12. SP David Buchanan was eliminated from contention when he threw 93 pitches for Triple-A Lehigh Valley Tuesday, April 8. Manager Ryne Sandberg said Buchanan would not start on short rest. The other option would be P Jeff Manship, who is the long man in the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: If Pettibone is the choice, he may only be used for two starts, depending on the health of Cole Hamels (shoulder). That makes Pettibone strictly an option for NL-only leaguers looking for innings.

Philadelphia Phillies SPs Jonathan Pettibone and David Buchanan are the main candidates to make the start against the Miami Marlins Saturday, April 12, although RP Jeff Manship also has some starting experience. Pettibone and Buchanan are both at Triple-A Lehigh Valley right now. Buchanan could be pitching on short rest, since he's scheduled to go Tuesday, April 8, in the minors. Pettibone is on the 40-man roster while Buchanan is not.
Fantasy Tip: Pettibone would be the more obvious candidate, especially since he had experience pitching in the rotation last year. Neither pitcher will be of much use in fantasy leagues, however.

Colorado Rockies RP Manuel Corpas was taken off the 40-man roster Wednesday, Oct. 16, making him a free agent. P Jeff Manship cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Corpas hopes to re-sign with the team, perhaps at a lower cost.

The Colorado Rockies placed SP Tyler Chatwood (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation Thursday, Aug. 8. In corresponding moves, they recalled P Jeff Manship from the minors and placed SP Christian Friedrich (back) on the 60-day DL. "Tyler threw a bullpen (Tuesday), really to test his hamstring," manager Walt Weiss said. "Then today he had inflammation in his elbow. Tyler has been really good. When it rains it pours. That's a guy you would love to run out there when we are struggling like we are."
Fantasy Tip: Chad Bettis could stay in the rotation now, or the team could turn to Jeff Francis to take Chatwood's spot. Bettis probably makes more sense, but he should only be an option in NL-only leagues.
