Phillies minor league starting pitcher David Buchanan is being called up to the big leagues to make his first start on Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Buchanan is taking Cliff Lee's spot in the rotation while he is on the disabled list with a left elbow strain. A roster move will be made before Saturday's game to make room for Buchanan since Darin Ruf was brought up on Wednesday to take Lee's place. Buchanan is 5-1 with a 3.98 ERA in his nine starts with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
