Transactions 3/22/2012

From Baseball America’s Prospect Blog

Philadelphia Phillies Released:

RHP Casey Barnes

RHP John Mariotti

RHP Joel Pineiro

RHP Jesus Pirela

LHP Ryan Feierabend

LHP Kasey Kiker

2B Alan Schoenberger

OF Brian Gump

Optioned to Double-A:

RHP J.C. Ramirez

C Sebastian Valle

2B Cesar Hernandez

OF Tyson Gillies

Removed from 40-man: 2B Harold Garcia (outrighted to Double-A)

Some of these moves will influence the IronPig’s Opening Day lineup. Along with injuries to Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and now Michael Martinez… the Pig’s roster will be shaken up.

I will miss Feierabend. He had some bad outtings but he was one of my favorites last season.

With all these Pig’s going straight to the Bigs this season the Phillies may also look to fill roster spots with free agent signings. (Translate to read the best of what the other teams cut during spring training.)

We will see.

OinK!

  1. R.D.

    And last night (22), Phillies Nation said Schwimer and Aumont were sent to minor-league camp.

  2. That looks like it could be Hector Luna stepping into the batters box to face Feierabend. He did homer off Feierabend in that April game when he got lit up (no pun intended).
