Wathan to manage AFL squad

Lets catch up a bit from my wild schedule with the most important items of the last few days.  The Arizonal Fall League rosters have been named, and with Dusty Wathan managing the Peoria Javelinas, 4 of our boys are on that team.  Jay Johnson, Colby Shreve, Tyler Knigge, and Zack Collier will join Cody Asche, Tommy Joseph and Kyle Simon  as the Phillies contingent.

Jarred Cosart and Jonathan Singleton will play for the Mesa Solar Sox.  Not all of these rosters have been finalized, so there could be additions.

Both Jay Happ (yesterday against the Yankees) and Kyle Kendrick (today against the Mets) picked up wins since I reported last.  It was the 10th for Happ, the 8th for Kyle, and takes the HomeSide total up to 57 for the year.

And kudos to Tyler Cloyd , who made his debut against the Mets last night and settled into a very good first night in the majors.  With Vance Worley done for the year with his impending surgery, Tyler will probably get a few more looks in the rotation.
