Willis pushed back a day

There is a change in the rotation that will effect today's game.

...Fredi Gonzalez announced a pitching change for the upcoming days. Daniel Barone will get the start in place of Dontrelle Willis, who is now being pushed back a day. The D-Train will throw on Thursday against the first-place Mets.

Whether the team feels that Dontrelle needs an extra day of rest, or that he should start against a team in the middle of trying to secure a division title with the Phillies in hot pursuit, I don't know.

But either way or maybe for some other reason, Dontrelle is scheduled to pitch at home tomorrow.
