The Phillies have released Julio Mateo. He didn’t even pitch for the Phillies after they acquired him from the Mariners at the trade deadline. The 30 year old righty reliever was 1-0 with a 3.75 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP last season for the Mariners. He has now pitched in 219 games (1 start) in his major league career and he is 18-12 with 2 saves, a 3.68 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. He will hook on with someone for next season because he’s a talented pitcher despite his off the field issues.
