The Philadelphia Phillies claim J.D. Durbin off of waivers from the Boston Red Sox

J.D. Durbin has had a rough start to the baseball season as he’s now been waived twice this season (D-Backs and Red Sox).  The Phillies are in such dire need of relief help that they decided to roll the dice and give Durbin a chance to get his career on the right track.  The reason he got waived by the D-Backs was because of his only major league outing of the season.  He threw 2/3 of an inning and allowed 7 hits and 7 earned runs (94.50 ERA).  Still, he’s only 25 years old and he is worth the minimal gamble that the Phillies are taking by giving him a chance.
