RHP Aaron Nola had contract selected by Philadelphia
RHP David Buchanan optioned to Lehigh Valley
RHP Chris Leroux activated (Pan Am Games)
RHP Tyler Knigge traded to Seattle Mariners organization for bags of cash–assigned to AA Jackson Generals
It just never seemed like Tyler had quite enough consistency or performance to be trusted above AAA. However, he’s a hard worker and a talented guy–hopefully he finds opportunity in another organization. I know it’s really “cash considerations” but I like to think that if I was traded for cash, it would be A LOT of cash. In any case, we wish him well.
Philly is going with a four-man rotation for the time being due to off days, with Jerome Williams and Nola joining Hamels and Morgan. Still waiting to hear if Harang will be assigned for rehab–as well as Chase Utley.
See you at the park,
