The Orioles have designated Zach Phillips for assignment, the team announced. The move creates room on the 40-man roster for the recently acquired Jim Thome.
Phillips, 25, owns a 3.12 ERA with 8.3 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9 in 11 career big league appearances, all with Baltimore. The left-hander has pitched to a 3.56 ERA with 8.0 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9 in 30 1/3 innings down in Triple-A this season.
Blue Jays will pick him up!!
Where he will win 10 games this season. Really, it happens to every former Rangers prospect.
If he makes it to the Mets, I seriously hope they pick him up. They need BP desperately.
I agree diehardmets!
Why him instead of someone like Berken? At least he has not been proven ineffective…
However, I do understand this move a little bit because he was supposed to become a lefty specialist in AAA, but lefties ended up hitting about .400 against him.
Don’t worry, he’ll always be in the O’s history books as giving up one of Josh Hamilton’s 4 hrs in a game.
