Phillies Designate Danys Baez For Assignment

The Phillies have designated right-handed reliever Danys Baez for assignment, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com (via Twitter). The move was made to clear space on the active roster for righty Brad Lidge, who was activated from the disabled list.

The Phils signed Baez to a two-year, $5.25MM contract in January 2010 following his solid 2009 with the Orioles in which he posted a whopping 61% ground ball rate. However, Baez has been underwhelming in his season-plus as a middle reliever in Philly, posting a 5.48 ERA in 2010 and a 6.25 ERA at the time of today's DFA.

For the fantasy implications of Lidge's return to the Phillies' bullpen, check out the post I wrote up today over at CloserNews.com.
