The Philadelphia Phillies jettison two players from the roster

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Tuesday 17 November 2009 at 11:53 pm

The Phillies removed 35-year old lefty swinging 1B Andy Tracy and 33-year old righty swinging catcher Paul Hoover from the 40-man roster making both of them free agents. Tracy played in 9 games for the Phillies last year and he was 5 for 12 (.417 avg, 1.000 OPS) with 1 run scored and 1 RBI. He also played in 129 games in AAA-ball last year and he was 115 for 453 (.254 avg, .842 OPS) with 76 runs scored, 26 homers, 96 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Tracy shouldn’t have much of a problem finding a new job based on his solid year in the minors. Hoover played in 3 games for the Phillies last year and he was 3 for 4 (.750 avg, 1.500 OPS) with 1 RBI. He also played in 73 games in AAA-ball last year and he was 62 for 245 (.253 avg, .668 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 1 homer and 28 RBIs. Veteran catchers are always in demand so Hoover should be able to find a gig for 2010. The Phillies won’t miss either of these guys.

UPDATE: The Phillies have re-signed Andy Tracy and Paul Hoover to minor league deals.
