Now, with Kyle Kendrick struggling on the mound, Happ is back in the spotlight and will make his third start of the season against the Braves Wednesday night. It's not out of the question that he could get another start yet this season, which would likely come on Monday when the Phillies and Braves square off again at Citizens Bank Park.
It's likely that the bullpen - and possibly Kendrick - will need to stay ready for Happ's start, since he hasn't started a game since August 26th as a member of the IronPigs. Since then, he's thrown just 4.1 innings, all coming in relief with the Phillies. If the Phillies can get five, or possibly, six innings out of him, they will likely be happy with the outing and look to turn the game over to the bullpen.
Happ and the Phillies won't have an easy go of it Wednesday night as they face Braves rookie Jair Jurrjens (13-9, 3.62). While he struggled in August, Jurrjens seems to have righted himself in his last two starts during which he has a 4.09 ERA. In two starts against the Phillies, Jurrjens is 1-1 with a 2.40 ERA.
