The Phillies have claimed 25-year old righty reliever Brian Schlitter off waivers from the Yankees. Schlitter got his first taste of the majors with the Cubs last season and it didn’t go too well. Schlitter pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Cubs last season and he was 0-1 with a 12.38 ERA and a 2.88 WHIP. He gave up a stunning 18 hits (2 homers) in only 8 innings for the Cubs last year as he got hit really hard. Schlitter also pitched in 37 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball last season and he was 2-1 with 13 saves, a 3.15 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. Schlitter has a good arm so maybe a change of scenery will get him back on the right path.
