Dane Sardinha Clears Waivers

MONDAY: Sardinha cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to the Phillies' Triple A club, tweets MLB.com's Todd Zolecki.

SATURDAY: The Phillies have designated catcher Dane Sardinha for assignment, according to Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer (via Twitter).  The move was made in order to activate Carlos Ruiz off of the 15-day disabled list.

Sardinha, 31, appeared in 13 games for the Phillies this season.  In 40 plate appearances, the Hawaiian hit .205/.225/.487. 

Prior to hooking on with Philadelphia's Triple-A affiliate this season, Sardinha spent six years in the Reds' organization and three years with the Tigers.
