Philadelphia Phillies Release Infielder

After requesting it, the Philadelphia Phillies have released Ronald Torreyes from his minor league contract.

Torreyes is looking to get back into the majors and with this request, it's clear that he didn't feel that he was going to get that opportunity in Philadelphia. He hasn't put together the strongest season in Triple-A thus far, either, as he has a .171 batting average in 10 games with Lehigh Valley. 

Perhaps some teams who are in need of a utility man could give Torreyes a shot as depth. It also doesn't hurt that he has a pretty decent chunk of MLB experience, too. In 351 career games between the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Minnesota Twins, and Phillies, he has 11 home runs, 98 RBIs, and a .265 batting average. Let's see if he finds a new home and gets the chance to build on these numbers from here.
