The Phillies claimed LHP David Roberts off waivers from the Texas Rangers. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Phillies designated OF Cody Asche for assignment.
Asche was arbitration eligible this off season, however was likely a non-tender candidate.
The 27-year old Rollins has bounced among teams this off season via waivers (the Rangers claimed him from the Cubs who claimed him from the Mariners). He may have found a permanent team on a Phillies roster that included only three left-handed pitchers among the 24 pitchers on its 40-man roster – starter Adam Morgan and relievers Elniery Garcia and Joely Rodriguez.
Freddy Galvis, Cesar Hernandez, and Jeanmar Gomez remain as the Phillies’ arbitration eligible players.
There are sure to be more moves this off season as the Phillies still only have 5 infielders on there 40-man roster.
