Phillies Release J.C. Romero

The Phillies announced that they gave left-hander J.C. Romero his unconditional release. Philadelphia had designated Romero for assignment last week.

The 35-year-old signed a $1.35MM deal with Philadelphia in January and the Phillies got 16 1/3 innings of work for their investment. Romero posted a 3.86 ERA with a 10K/12BB ratio and missed some time with a calf injury. The Cardinals appeared to have some interest in him last week.
