C’est la vie, Phillippe! Aumont Elects for Free Agency

Todd Zolecki tweeted following the Phillies loss to the Yankees this afternoon that pitcher Phillippe Aumont has declined assignment and elected to become a free agent. As our Jon Nisula pointed out prior to his disastrous outing against the Cardinals, Aumont was out of options, and a poor start last week could potentially force the club’s hand on Aumont.

Phillippe Aumont elects free agency, ending the 2009 Cliff Lee trade nightmare

When the Phillies dealt Cliff Lee to Seattle in 2009, it didn't make much sense because it seemed like some of the teams' best days were right ahead of them. They had the best record in 2011 and won the NL East in 2010. In an attempt to replenish some...

Hamels Scratched, Aumont Steps In

Cole Hamels will not make his scheduled start today against the Cardinals. He was scratched due to a mild hamstring strain. Have no fear, however–it doesn’t appear to be enough for a trip to the DL. In his place, Phillippe Aumont (remember him?) will get the call. He’s been pretty good in Triple-A this year, posting a 2.35 ERA. His last ten outings have been starts, where he’s...

Phillies Acquire Jayson Nix from Rays, Send Aumont to Iron Pigs

On Friday, the Phillies rounded out their bench by acquiring Jayson Nix, brother of Laynce, from the Tampa Bay Rays for cash. Nix, 31, will be Jimmy Rollins’ backup at shortstop. Last season with the Yankees, Nix hit 236 with three homers and 24 RBIs in 86 games. He can also play second base, third base, and has played in the outfield. Not a bad move to make as the final bench...
