Some further clarity here from Gelb on the plan with Strahm and recently-claimed starter Dylan Covey:
Matt Strahm will open tomorrow’s game with Dylan Covey behind him as a bulk boy.— Matt Gelb (@MattGelb) May 23, 2023
Anyway, speaking of Covey, a roster move:
Right-handed pitcher Dylan Covey, who was claimed on waivers from the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday, reported to the club today. To make room for Covey on the 26-man roster, right-hander Andrew Bellatti was optioned to Lehigh Valley following last night’s game.— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) May 23, 2023
For the Diamondbacks:

RED ALERT: We’ve got an Evan Longoria sighting.
Fun fact: Longoria is the only remaining active player from the 2008 World Series (he went 1 for 20).
