Two pitchers, one catcher and one outfielder were called up from the minor leagues by the Phillies following today's game, the club announced.

Right-hander Adam Eaton and left-hander J.A. Happ were recalled from triple-A Lehigh Valley and outfielder Greg Golson and catcher Lou Marson had their contracts purchased from double-A Reading.

Eaton, 30, began the season with the Phillies before being optioned to the minor leagues on July 29. He pitched for Lehigh Valley, Reading and single-A Lakewood, going a combined 0-5 with a 7.02 ERA in seven starts. Most recently, he started for Lehigh Valley last night.

Happ, 25, appeared in three games (two starts) for the Phillies this season, but has spent the majority of the year with Lehigh Valley, where he went 8-7 with a 3.60 ERA and 151 strikeouts in 135.0 innings (10.1 SO/9.0 IP). Happ held triple-A hitters to a .234 average.

Golson, 22, went into play today hitting .282 with 13 home runs, 60 RBI and 23 stolen bases for Reading.

Marson, 22, hit .314 with five home runs and 46 RBI in 94 games with Reading. He also played in the All-Star Futures Game and for the U.S. baseball team in the recently-completed Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. Marson batted .308 in five games (four starts) during the Olympics.

To make room for Golson and Marson on the 40-man roster, the Phillies transferred right-handers Tom Gordon (right elbow inflammation) and Francisco Rosario (right shoulder inflammation) to the 60-day disabled list.
