Oswalt to the DL

[UPDATE] Roy Oswalt was put on the 15-day DL. Scott Mathieson was called up.

[ORIGINAL POST] Roy Oswalt’s bull pen session did not go well yesterday according to the Phils.

Still feeling soreness in his back, Oswalt will not pitch in Saturday’s game against the Braves. In his place, Kyle Kendrick will make his first start of the season.

There is also a chance Oswalt could land on the DL, extending Vance Worley’s stint with the Phillies. But Rich Dubee also said Oswalt could be back as early as Friday. He said Oswalt’s back is just “cranky” because he had been away from baseball for over a week.

In Braves news, they will call up rookie Julio Teheran to pitch against Kendrick on Saturday. This will bump Jair Jurrjens start to Sunday.
