Phillies roster and the many layers to outrighting Kevin Frandsen

One of the strangest developments of this long Phillies offseason was the announcement Sunday that Kevin Frandsen had been outrighted to Lehigh Valley. Frandsen elected not to accept the assignment and decided to become a free agent, forfeiting his previously guaranteed $900,000 salary. It was a pretty risky move for Frandsen to forgo nearly a million bucks after all teams passed...

Phillies Release Stutes, Frandsen Signs with Nats

Right-handed pitcher Mike Stutes, who was outrighted by the Phillies early in March, has officially been released by the club. It was hardly a shocking move, as Stutes pitched in just three innings this spring and struggled mightily, allowing seven earned runs on five hits while walking three. Stutes was a pleasant surprise as a rookie for the Phillies with a lively fastball out...

Kevin Frandsen- Outfielder?

Kevin Frandsen's bat needs to be in the Phillies lineup on a semi-regular basis.  Since joining the Phils he's done nothing but hit- .345/.851 in 57 games, including that bases clearing game winning double in the 9th last night.  Yes, that is a small sample size, but until he proves otherwise he's a hot commodity.  For the record, he's always hit in the minors...

A payday for Kevin Frandsen

Kevin Frandsen did not get rich a few days ago when the Phillies signed him for $850,000 plus incentives. That is certainly not big money when it comes to baseball contracts. But when you think that it took eight years of minor league ball and several cups of coffee for him to stick at the major league level, that is a pretty big deal. But his signing doesn't mean that the Phillies...
