The Phillies have decided to designate infielder Brian Bocock for assignment to make room on the roster for 34-year old righty swinging infielder Cody Ransom. Bocock didn’t get in any games before getting DFA’d by the Phillies. Ransom has played in 82 games in AAA-ball this season and he was 71 of 298 (.238 avg, .766 OPS) with 48 runs scored, 16 homers and 51 RBIs. He has also played in 197 games in his major league career and he is 61 of 262 (.233 avg, .722 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 7 homers, 34 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. Ransom has whiffed 83 times in his major league career so he has some holes in his swing. Ransom is a vastly superior hitter to Bocock and he can handle any infield position defensively so he could get a lot of P.T. at 2B and 3B unless they make a trade for a infielder.
