BREAKING: Pedro Martinez to the rotation; Jamie Moyer to bullpen

New, 19 comments

MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports via Twitter that Pedro Martinez has been added to the Phillies starting rotation, with Jamie Moyer sent to the bullpen.  Zolecki further reports that Martinez will start the Phillies' Wednesday night game against the Chicago Cubs, with J.A. Happ going on Tuesday night, and Cliff Lee pitching Thursday.

A difficult move, but necessary, although I'm not too wild about going against the Braves without Cliff Lee.  I guess there was no way to do that and keep him on something resembling normal rest.
