Phillies Designate Sergio Escalona For Assignment

The Phillies have designated Sergio Escalona for assignment, according to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com (via Twitter).  The left-hander was DFA'd to make room on the 40-man roster for J.C. Romero, who was officially re-signed on Thursday.

Escalona spent 2010 with the Phillies' Double-A affiliate, turning in a 3.81 ERA with 8.8 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9 across 54.1 innings of work.  The 26-year-old has 14 major league appearances to his credit, all of which came in 2009 for the Phillies.
