Brian Schlitter Returned To Cubs

The commissioner's office returned Phillies right-hander Brian Schlitter to the Cubs because of past injury, according to Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer (on Twitter). The Phillies claimed Schlitter from the Yankees in February, a month after the Yankees claimed him from the Cubs, but those claims are now void.

The Phillies placed Schlitter on the disabled list with a right flexor pronator strain at the end of Spring Training, retroactive to March 22nd. He has yet to appear in a pro game this year.

Schlitter appeared in seven games for the Cubs last year and gave up 18 hits and five walks in eight innings, striking out seven. He spent most of the season at Triple-A Iowa, where he posted a 3.15 ERA with 8.3 K/9 and 4.1 BB/9 in 45 2/3 innings in his first season at the highest level of the minors.

    Guess they’re trying to make chicken salad out of chicken schlitt.

  9. Why cant you just say what the real story is? “Cubs get RHP from Phillies”. Well, hes not going to pitch for the Cubs, he never actually pitched for the Phillies. The only truth in that headline was the RHP part. You couldnt sat “Phils return RHP to Cubs, claim hes damaged goods” And it seems highly unlikely that Schlitter will be pitching again in the major leagues anytime soon. Hardly seem even worth mentioning at all.
