SEPT. 17: Torreyes cleared waivers and was outrighted to Lehigh Valley, the Phillies announced.
SEPT. 15: The Phillies have designated infielder Ronald Torreyes for assignment, per a team announcement. His roster spot will go to left-hander Garrett Cleavinger, whom they recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Torreyes lasted just a few days on the roster of the Phillies, who selected his contract Sept. 11. The 28-year-old went on to hit 1-for-7 before the Phillies designated him. Formerly a Dodger, Yankee and Twin, Torreyes has batted .277/.306/.369 with four home runs and five steals across 638 plate appearances in the majors. His .273/.314/.365 line in 1,080 PA in Triple-A doesn’t look much different.
Cleavinger, 26, could now be in line for his first major league experience. The Phillies acquired him from the Orioles for righty Jeremy Hellickson back in 2017, and Cleavinger has since shown he’s capable of producing at the Double-A level. He threw 51 2/3 innings of 3.66 ERA/2.73 FIP ball with 14.46 K/9 and 5.92 BB/9 there last year.
