CLEARWATER, Fla. - Tyler Cloyd's phone was quickly dying. He had just arrived at his new office space, at One Citizens Bank Way in South Philly, when he hurriedly found a new teammate with a phone charger. Thankfully, Antonio Bastardo showed some hospitality to the 25-year-old righthander who woke up at his friend's place on the Chesapeake Bay, only to find himself pitching in a major league game for the Phillies later that night. "It was the most hectic drive ever," Cloyd said of Aug. 29, when he was summoned to the big leagues to fill in for an ill Cole Hamels.

WASHINGTON - Phillies righthander Tyler Cloyd says that Boston's Fenway Park is a stadium he always wanted to visit, but he never had the chance. That will end on Monday when Cloyd gets the start against the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of a two-game series at Fenway. "I always wanted to go there," Cloyd said about Fenway. "My brother and I wanted to visit as many baseball fields as we could. " Cloyd couldn't fit it into his schedule and now he will get his chance. "Just going there is a big deal and to get the opportunity to pitch there is great," he said.

The Phillies began the process of cleansing their 40-man roster Wednesday when pitchers Tyler Cloyd and Raul Valdes were claimed on waivers by other teams. Cleveland acquired Cloyd, while Houston claimed Valdes. Cloyd, who was named by the Phillies as their top minor-league pitcher in 2012, posted a 6.36 ERA in 13 games (11 starts) this season. He is 26. Valdes, 35, was not recalled in September, which sealed his fate. This season, he had a 7.46 ERA in 35 innings. "We have to clean up our roster," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said last week.

Tyler Cloyd lasted only four innings and was knocked around Sunday in his shortest major-league start yet. In the aftermath, there were silver linings. His teammates rallied for a victory. And the Phillies have a starter for Thursday. Cloyd will pitch on short rest in the series opener at Houston. The doubleheader on Sunday could have created a quandary. Cloyd, however, threw only 76 pitches. "With my pitch count, it shouldn't be too bad," the rookie righthander said. It's the first time this season the Phillies will ask a pitcher to start on three days' rest.

The Phillies, losers of 19 of their last 23 games, solemnly boarded a charter plane in the wee hours Thursday morning. When asked about the weekend's challenge, their manager insisted: "We're definitely capable. " Across the country, the Dodgers staged a dramatic comeback and later won in extra innings for the 40th time in 48 games. "I can't explain what's happening here," Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said. "But it's fun. " The Phillies are all that stand between Los Angeles and the best stretch of baseball since World War II. If the Dodgers win their next two games, they will equal the 1942 Cardinals' run of 42-8.

SAN FRANCISCO - If the Phillies had information Tuesday regarding Roy Halladay's health, they were not sharing it with the world. A cloud of uncertainty remained over their rotation and the star righthander's future. Halladay saw a doctor Tuesday, this much is sure. But the Phillies did not release any further updates. It was unknown exactly when during the day Halladay saw Neal ElAttrache, the Dodgers' team physician, in Los Angeles, and what tests were performed. An MRI examination was expected.

Lehigh Valley righthander Tyler Cloyd has noticeably struggled this season, except when he has pitched for the Phillies in two stints. In a true reversal of statistics, Cloyd is 2-2 with a 3.41 ERA in six starts for the Phillies. That was improved over last year, when he was 2-2 with a 4.91 ERA for the Phillies. Cloyd's solid performance in the major leagues hasn't translated to triple A. He entered the weekend 1-5 with a 7.29 ERA for the IronPigs. "I would like to see Tyler pitch a little better," IronPigs manager Dave Brundage said.

MINNEAPOLIS - The Phillies' walking wounded are beginning to shuffle back from the disabled list to the majors. John Lannan, the team's fifth starter, will return Monday to pitch against the team from which he demanded a trade last season. And starting catcher Carlos Ruiz is targeting a June 21 arrival. A depleted roster requires some sort of boost. Chase Utley could reappear next week, although his status is less certain. Ruiz (strained right hamstring) will begin a rehabilitation assignment Saturday with triple-A Lehigh Valley.

MIAMI - When asked late Saturday night what challenge lies ahead this winter, Roy Halladay said, "I'm looking forward to it" five times in the span of a minute. The pitcher has already engaged the Phillies athletic training staff and strength coaches in meetings to devise a plan. After a season of harsh lessons, Halladay is eager to apply the newfound knowledge of his body. "I feel like there's no doubt for me," Halladay said. "I feel like I can prepare myself the right way and be successful next year.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - While most of the 27 other pitchers in camp got their arms in motion, half of them preparing to throw off the mounds, Cole Hamels played catch at a shorter distance. He's behind the rest of the pitchers in camp, just as he said he would be a day earlier. He hopes to throw his first bullpen session before the end of next weekend. Hamels, who is throwing pain-free after battling biceps tendinitis in November, is unconcerned and believes he can play catch-up, even if he's not able to take the ball on Opening Day. The man who signed Hamels to the richest contract in Phillies history also isn't worried.

ATLANTA - Ryne Sandberg adjusted his hat. He glanced at a scribbled lineup card that displayed a pitching nightmare late Thursday night in the simplest of forms. "That was a big lift," he said of Mauricio Robles, an anonymous waiver claim from Seattle last winter and the 27th pitcher used by the 2013 Phillies. Robles walked five more hitters than he struck out in 34 games at triple-A Lehigh Valley. He should not be here, nor should the Phillies have needed him to throw 66 pitches in the season's 159th game to avoid a bullpen calamity.

ATLANTA - There is no limit to the gore of this season's final days. The Phillies pitching staff is in tatters. The bullpen will assume the brunt of the final two games because four starters are injured. Tyler Cloyd is still healthy, and that made the situation worse. A 7-1 loss to the Braves was a disaster for a team that craved an uneventful night. The torture lasted 3 hours, 4 minutes and 187 pitches thrown by six Phillies. Cloyd recorded three outs on 57 pitches. He allowed hits to eight of the 13 batters he faced.

ATLANTA - No matter how remote the chances are to stick in the rotation for 2014, Tyler Cloyd understands that every time he takes a major league mound it's an opportunity to increase his chances of keeping a major league job. It's why he used words like "disappointed" and phrases like "figure out a way to make myself better" after giving up five runs and 10 hits in a start against the Washington Nationals earlier this month. Unfortunately for Cloyd, who replaced high-ceiling reliever Ethan Martin in the rotation, he has looked less and less like a big-league pitcher with each start this month.

WASHINGTON - Tyler Cloyd stepped farther away from the rubber and waited for Erik Kratz. Before long, manager Ryne Sandberg joined the Phillies' battery on the mound at Nationals Park. Jayson Werth had just collected an RBI single in the fifth inning and Bryce Harper, who hit a pair of doubles about 700 feet, was due up. Cloyd handed the ball to Sandberg and found a spot inside the visiting dugout. Cloyd was removed before recording an out in the inning, continuing an ugly trend among Phillies' starting pitchers.

Standing in the Phillies dugout hours before Friday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the Atlanta Braves, pitching coach Rich Dubee made one of the least surprising announcements. Dubee said Phillies righthander Ethan Martin would be moved to the bullpen for the rest of the season and that Tyler Cloyd would take his place in the rotation. "His stuff has played phenomenally well the first time through a lineup," Dubee said. "Again, I don't know if it is because of fatigue, if he burns up too much energy, but his stuff shortens up the second and third time through.

THE PHILLIES have seen enough out of Ethan Martin to believe he will be an important piece of next year's roster. That might sound strange, given the 23 earned runs, eight home runs and 21 walks he has allowed in 30 innings over seven starts. But as of yesterday, the Phillies are no longer handling Martin as a starter. During batting practice, pitching coach Rich Dubee informed reporters that the hard-throwing righthander would move to the bullpen, a place where many talent evaluators had long assumed he would end up. Tyler Cloyd will start for the foreseeable future, but this move is all about transitioning Martin, 24, to the bullpen.

He was not overpowering and needed some great defense, including a home run-saving catch, but overall, Roy Halladay made a successful return to a major-league mound on Sunday. Making his first Phillies appearance since May 5, Halladay allowed two runs in six innings during a 9-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Citizens Bank Park. The two-time Cy Young Award winner threw 94 pitches, 55 for strikes, with a fastball in the high 80s for much of the day. Halladay, who underwent shoulder surgery on May 15, surrendered four hits while striking out two and walking two. "I feel like I am getting stronger and I look forward to continuing to build," said Halladay, 36. Halladay originally was supposed to make his third minor-league rehabilitation start Sunday at Reading.
