Joe Savery Called Up By Phillies As Halladay Heads To DL

With Roy Halladay on his way to the Disabled List, for 15 days, (at least), the Phillies have elected to call up Joe Savery from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Savery will take Halladay’s spot on the roster, but may very well only be at the MLB levelf or a few days, as the Phillies will need to call up a starter to replace Halladay in the rotation.

The Phillies could have called up a starter today, but may have decided to throw a bone to Savery by calling him up for a few days because of how well he has pitched at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season.

Savery, currently has an ERA of 0.68 in 10 appearances for the Ironpigs, while posting a WHIP under 1.00.

Adam Morgan will still likely be called up to make Halladay’s next start, and hopefully after that we will have a better idea on the return dates of both Halladay and John Lannan.
