The Phillies have begun their post season minor league cleanup by releasing 9 players, none of whom are a big surprise. The following players have been released: P Mark Meadors, P Gregorio Santos, P Jeb Stefan, P Francibal Alejo, 2B Olvy Marte, 2B Robinson Torres, 3B Trey WIlliams, OF Nick Ferdinand and INF Anthony Phillips.
Trey Williams was the name from the list that the Phils probably believed had the most potential as their 7th round draft choice in 2013. Williams hits .197 in the Gulf Coast League, spanning two seasons. Jeb STefan was the Phils 22nd round pick in 2012 and showed some promise in ’12 and ’13 in Williamsport and Lakewood before an awful year this year in Clearwater.
Quick additional note that the Phils have outrighted SS Andres Blanco off of their 40 man roster.
