Zack Wheeler to Miss His Next Start
"You can't make this stuff up," said Phillies manager Joe Girardi after the Phillies bullpen blew another game on Thursday night against the Miami Marlins.
Except he wasn't talking about his bullpen losing another lead.
He was talking about his starting pitcher, Zack Wheeler, missing his next start because of an issue with a nail on his middle finger, that he injured putting on his pants.
"It happened yesterday putting on his pants, he caught his nail," Giradi said
Wheeler was scheduled to pitch on Saturday, he will now be pushed back to Monday with Spencer Howard moving up to Saturday.
Aaron Nola will start Game 1 of tomorrow's doubleheader and the bullpen will start Game 2. On Sunday it will be Zach Eflin and Vince Velasquez starting the doubleheaders.
