The Phillies have designated Drew Naylor, Juan Perez, and Mike Zagurski for assignment according to a team press release. The moves free up 40-man roster spots for Erik Kratz, Joe Savery, and Brandon Moss, all of whom were called up from the minors. Domonic Brown and Justin DeFratus were also recalled.
Naylor, 25, pitched to a 4.63 ERA in 167 innings for Philadelphia's Double-A affiliate last year. The 33-year-old Perez posted a 5.70 ERA in 36 1/3 Triple-A innings this season, and was generally ineffective in five appearances with the big league team. Zagurski, 28, had a 2.65 ERA in 54 1/3 relief innings at Triple-A this season, and he also appeared in four games in the show. Naylor is a righty, but both Perez and Zagurski are left-handed.
