Roy Oswalt not likely to be ready by Friday


Roy Oswalt is eligible to come off the DL on Friday, but he’s unlikely to be ready to pitch then, reports the Philly Inquirer.

The Phillies will be in Atlanta next weekend, and that could mean that Kyle Kendrick gets another start against the Braves. Which wouldn’t be a bad thing at all for Philly, frankly, given that Kendrick is now 6-1 with a 2.35 ERA in ten career starts against them.

It’s to the point where I think Braves hitters fear him more than the aces.
