Phillies shuffle roster as result of 18-inning game
PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies made a few rosters moves before Sunday's series finale against Arizona as a result of Saturday's 18-inning affair.
They activated right-hander Roy Halladay from the 60-day disabled list and selected the contract of right-hander J.C. Ramirez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. To make room on the 25-man and 40-man rosters, they optioned right-handers Tyler Cloyd and Luis Garcia to Lehigh Valley, and placed right-handers Jonathan Pettibone and Mike Stutes on the 60-day DL.
Cloyd had been scheduled to start Sunday, but had to pitch Saturday in relief. Halladay, who had right shoulder surgery in May, had been scheduled to make a rehab start Sunday with Double-A Reading, but made his return to the big leagues earlier than expected because the team is shorthanded.
