Worth noting

• Right-hander Kyle Kendrick (4-9, 4.86 ERA) was officially announced as the starter for Tuesday's game at Miami. After Kendrick's poor outing in Wednesday's loss to the Braves, manager Charlie Manuel was non-committal on whether Kendrick would make his next start. Then, on Friday, Manuel said Kendrick would probably remain in the rotation for the time being.

• Right-hander Michael Schwimer is in the midst of a great stretch out of the bullpen. Opponents have only two hits in their last 32 at-bats with 17 strikeouts against the reliever.

• Left fielder Juan Pierre needs one more stolen base to tie George Van Haltren for 20th place all time. Pierre is the Major League's active leader, with 582 stolen bases.

• A win on Sunday would give the Phillies their second winning homestand -- and second consecutive -- of the season. They were 4-4 in the first eight games of the current homestand.
