Phillies | Tyler Cloyd throws quality start, gets optioned to minors

Philadelphia Phillies SP Tyler Cloyd allowed two runs on two hits over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, May 10, with three walks and four strikeouts. After the game, he was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. In a corresponding move, RP Justin De Fratus was recalled from Lehigh Valley.

Fantasy Tip: Because of several off days on the schedule, the Phillies will not need a fifth starter again until May 21, so the decision was made to add an extra bullpen arm for the time being. Cloyd would have been demoted regardless of how well he pitched Friday, but he is expected to return to the majors as soon as the Phils need another starter.
