Phillies DFA Taschner, call up Lopez

So long, Jack Taschner, it was nice getting to know you on "The Pen". The Phillies designated the lefty for assignment today, making room for Rodrigo Lopez, who will start tonight's game against the Mets. Taschner, who was originally acquired from the Giants back in March, departs the team sporting an ERA of 5.20 and a WHIP of 1.95. He has been particularly atrocious lately, so this move comes as no surprise.

Here is the updated list of Phillies bullpen roles:

Long relief:

Chan Ho Park
Chad Durbin

Situational Lefty:
Sergio Escalona

6th inning:
Tyler Walker

7th inning:
Chad Durbin

8th inning:
J.C. Romero
Ryan Madson

Brad Lidge
