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

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...

Philadelphia Phillies demote Phillippe Aumont, recall Ethan Martin
