Some were players who won their spots in Spring Training like Mario Hollands while others were veteran...

Notes: Chooch to DL, Collier DFA’ed, Camp Released

The road to contention just got even trickier. 2008 first-round pick Zach Collier was designated for assignment today to make room on the 40-man roster for catcher Koyie Hill. The 23-year old outfielder has struggled in the minors, posting a .240/.312/.349 over his minor league career while Collier has hit just .228/.307/.316 with just one homer in his second stint with Reading....

Phils Promote Brignac, Giles; Camp Elects Free Agency

Brignac improves the Phillies bench immediately. The Phillies have added infielder Reid Brignac to their Major League roster today following the demotion last night of Freddy Galvis. Brignac, 28, is a former four-time Baseball America Top 100 prospect and was having a very good year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley (.284/.357/.514 with 5 HR, 3 SB in 128 PA).

Amaro is Ready for a Camping Trip

Holy balls!  That heading is corny.  Oh, well, I'm rolling with it, because Amaro just signed reliever Shawn Camp to a minor league deal.  This is exactly the sort of signing Amaro needs to do in order to create organizational depth.  Camp lead the NL in appearances in 2012 (80 G) and was a reliable reliever in 3 out of the last 5 seasons.  Though, last year with the Cubs...
