The Phillies decided to finally give up on veteran righty starting pitcher Kris Benson by releasing him. Benson started 13 games in A+AAA ball this season and he was 1-6 with a 5.78 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP. He allowed a stunning 95 hits in only 67 innings in the minor leagues so the Phillies couldn’t risk bringing him up to the team in a pennant race. They won’t miss him at all.
