The Phillies announced that they have designated Jeremy Horst for assignment. The move will create room on the 40-man roster for the arrival of Cesar Jimenez, who has been called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
The left-hander reliever made 28 appearances for the Phillies last season and didn’t have a ton of success. Horst posted a 6.23 ERA with 7.3 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9 in those outings. In the two seasons prior, the 28-year-old pitched to a combined 1.74 ERA 9.5 K/9 and 3.9 BB/9 in 44 outings. So far in 2014, Horst owns a 4.35 ERA with 8.3 K/9 and 7.0 BB/9 in 19 Triple-A games.
