Possible Pick-Ups & Other Stuff

The Phillies have a host of players on their 40-man roster that have next to no upside, nor deserve a protected roster spot.  That list includes Luis Garcia, Phillippe Aumont, Hector Neris, BJ Rosenberg, and Andres Blanco. They're are practically useless. Releasing them is no big deal.  Due to some September call-ups around baseball, there have been some interesting guys become...

If Phillies deal Lee, they need MLB-ready talent

The release of Tyson Gillies on Sunday was the latest reminder of just how poor the Phillies' return was in the December 2009 trade that sent Cliff Lee to Seattle. Two of the three players the Phillies acquired have since been released, and Phillippe Aumont has failed three different times to hold a spot in the major-league bullpen. The timing of the release was interesting...

After Being Sent To AAA Since The Phillies OF Was Too Good, Darin Ruf Injured

The Phillies sent outfielder/first baseman Darin Ruf to AAA the other day, since they were not willing to use him and since their putrid team needed Phillippe Aumont more than they needed a power hitting right-handed outfielder/first baseman. Now, Ruf is hurt and cannot help the major league Phillies, or...

Philadelphia Phillies demote Phillippe Aumont, recall Ethan Martin

Once the prized gem of the Cliff Lee trade to Seattle, relief pitcher Phillippe Aumont has been anything but a prized gem. Today, it was announced by the Phillies that Aumont will be optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and in his place recall RHP Ethan Martin. Martin was one of the pieces; the Phillies acquired in the Shane Victorino trade to Los Angeles and has shown promise in the...

Phillies Lose to Mets in Extras, Again

Stop me if you’ve heard it before. The Phillies lost to the Mets, 4-2, in 11 innings. It was a third straight extra-inning affair between the two teams, the first time thats happened in the history of the series. Cole Hamels was upset and did not speak to the media following the game. It’s hard to fault him for that. He struck out eight over seven innings and ended up with a...

Manship to DL, Ruf to Triple-A

The Phillies made two moves Sunday morning, placing relief pitcher Jeff Manship–who threw four perfect innings during yesterday’s 14-inning loss to the Mets–on the 15 day DL, and optioning Darin Ruf to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Replacing Manship and Ruf will be Phillippe Aumont and Cesar Jimenez, both right-handed relievers. After 28 innings in two days, the bullpen needed some...

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...

Aumont confident he has fixed his flawed mechanics

IT CAN FEEL pretty damn good when you finally realize what you are doing wrong. That doesn't mean you stop doing it, only that you understand when it has been done. When you yank your approach shot into the woods, but feel your front half open up. When you clank a shot off the side of the rim, but feel your guide hand muck up your release. For Phillippe Aumont, it's his...

Phillies Nation Player Review: Phillippe Aumont

At 6-7, 260 pounds, and with a power fastball, Phillippe Aumont was supposed to be a power pitcher. Instead, he has become a walk machine who is struggling mightily with control and composure on the mound. Aumont, 24, still has a future ahead of him as a pitcher who throws hard. He’ll be given chances to prove he belongs. But how many more will he get with the Phillies? In 22 games...

Phillies Recall Garcia, Option Aumont to AAA
