C Cameron Rupp, 24, made just his second big-league start Tuesday, playing in place of Carlos Ruiz, who was rested. Rupp, a native of Dallas, is a 6-foot-1, 240-pound former Texas Longhorn. He went 1-for-4 Tuesday.
RHP Roy Halladay, who lasted just one-third inning against the Marlins on Monday in the shortest start of the eight-time All-Star's career, is a free agent after this season. He seems a long shot to return to a rotation that has but two sure bets: Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels.
