Phillies Outright Darnell Sweeney

The Phillies have outrighted infielder/outfielder Darnell Sweeney, as Matt Breen of Philly.com tweets. While it isn’t yet clear how the 40-man spot will be used, Breen’s colleague Matt Gelb previously reported that righty Alec Asher could get the call.

Projecting the Prospects in the Chase Utley Trade

After 13 productive years in a Phillies uniform, Chase Utley is headed to Los Angeles, where he’ll help solidify the Dodgers’ second-base situation. In exchange for Utley’s services, the Dodgers sent a couple of minor leaguers to the Phillies: utility player Darnell Sweeney and right-handed pitcher John Richy.
