Phillies Claim Brian Bocock Off Waivers

The Phillies have claimed infielder Brian Bocock off waivers from the Blue Jays, tweets MLB.com's Todd Zolecki. Toronto just claimed Bocock off waivers from the Giants earlier this month. 

Bocock, 25 in March, spent most of '09 in High A ball, where he hit .241/.303/.339.  The speedy shortstop is hailed for his defense, according to Baseball America's '08 Handbook.

Note: an earlier version of this post contained incorrect information about the Phillies having higher priority than the Blue Jays for NL players.  Only trade waivers are league-specific.
