Philadelphia Phillies SP Jonathan Pettibone will make the start against the Miami Marlins Saturday, April 12.
Fantasy Tip: Pettibone is a short-term solution in NL-only leagues, but the matchup against the hot Marlins isn't the idea situation for his season debut.

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jonathan Pettibone is expected to be called up to make the start Saturday, April 12. SP David Buchanan was eliminated from contention when he threw 93 pitches for Triple-A Lehigh Valley Tuesday, April 8. Manager Ryne Sandberg said Buchanan would not start on short rest. The other option would be P Jeff Manship, who is the long man in the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: If Pettibone is the choice, he may only be used for two starts, depending on the health of Cole Hamels (shoulder). That makes Pettibone strictly an option for NL-only leaguers looking for innings.

Philadelphia Phillies SPs Jonathan Pettibone and David Buchanan are the main candidates to make the start against the Miami Marlins Saturday, April 12, although RP Jeff Manship also has some starting experience. Pettibone and Buchanan are both at Triple-A Lehigh Valley right now. Buchanan could be pitching on short rest, since he's scheduled to go Tuesday, April 8, in the minors. Pettibone is on the 40-man roster while Buchanan is not.
Fantasy Tip: Pettibone would be the more obvious candidate, especially since he had experience pitching in the rotation last year. Neither pitcher will be of much use in fantasy leagues, however.
