Phillies Release Danys Baez

The Phillies released reliever Danys Baez after he cleared waivers, tweets Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer.  He'd been designated for assignment a week ago to create a spot for Brad Lidge.

Signed to a curious two-year deal before the 2010 season, Baez produced a 5.81 ERA, 4.9 K/9, 3.9 BB/9, and 1.2 HR/9 in 83 2/3 innings for the Phillies.  He still posts healthy groundball rates, at least.
