One small update: Pete Orr was outrighted to LHV on Friday night thus removing him from the 40 man roster (as far as I understand) . I believe he must have cleared waivers as well and is another trade forthcoming? According to Baseball America Orr is eligible for arbitration in 2013. Feel free to google arbitration, wavers, etc. as it’s a minefield of information.
Hector Luna and Mike Fontenot do remain on the active roster while Pete was outrighted back to LHV. While Orr was hitting .286 with 5 RBI, 0 HR and 13 K – Luna is batting .324 with 10 RBI, 2 HR and 7 K and Fontenot (“FontenYES”) is on fire at a .342 clip and 5 RBI,1 HR and 6 K. Mike also has the highest current OBP for the Phils at .419 (granted he’s only appeared in 19 games but still had around the same AB as Orr and Luna). Surely disappointing for Speedy Petey but if you go strictly by the current stats I guess it makes sense.
LHP Raul Valdes optioned by Philadelphia to LHV.
RHP B.J. Rosenberg had contract purchased by Philadelphia.
IF Pete Orr was outrighted by Philadelphia.
