According to Phils Media Relations, the team has added OF Zach Collier and RHPs Ethan Martin, Trevor May, and Jon Pettibone to the 40-man roster. This protects them from the Rule 5 draft in December. Mild surprise that neither Jiwan James nor Leandro Castro were protected, leaving both exposed to the Rule 5 draft, (among other, seemingly less enticing players). Phillies leave 2 spots open for free agents or a Rule 5 pickup of their own.
