Phillies demote LHP J.A. Happ to Triple-A

Jul 6, 2010, 7:52 PM EDT

As indicated Monday, the Phillies have decided to option left-handed J.A. Happ to Triple-A rather than return him to the rotation with his rehab assignment complete.
Happ, who had been on the DL since mid-April with forearm soreness, posted a 6.93 ERA in 24 1/3 innings during his 30-day rehab assignment. The Phillies could have applied for an extension to the rehab assignment, but since Happ had options remaining, the decision was made to simply send him down.
That means Kyle Kendrick will hold on to his rotation spot for now. Kendrick is 5- with a 4.70 ERA since replacing Happ.
