With the news that Phillies ace Roy Halladay will miss 6-8 weeks with a right latissimus dorsi strain, the Phillies will need to address his rotation spot moving forward if they hope to compete in 2012.
Vance Worley is already on the disabled list and his rotation spot is currently being filled by swingman Kyle Kendrick, so for the time being the Phillies will need a stop gap option.
Long-term, however, they will need to decide if Kendrick is the answer for two months or if they will look to fill Halladay's rotation spot with someone else.
They're unlikely make a blockbuster move, with the team already struggling due to so many other injuries and the farm system somewhat depleted after trading for Roy Oswalt and Hunter Pence the past two seasons.
However, they have some decent in-house options and some low-cost veterans on the trade market that they could look to pursue. Here is a look at some of the possible replacements.
