The Philadelphia Phillies have lost 40-year old righty reliever Jose Contreras for the rest of the season due to a UCL and flexor tear in his right elbow. Contreras pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Phillies this year and he was 1-1 with a 5.27 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. He likely has thrown his last pitch for the Phillies, as they are not expected to pick up his option for the 2013 season. Contreras pitched in 101 games (0 starts) in his three years with the Phillies and he is 7-4 with 9 saves, a 3.74 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. The Phillies have called up 26-year old righty reliever Michael Schwimer to replace Contreras in the bullpen. Schwimer pitched in 5 games (0 starts) for the Phillies earlier this year and he was 0-1 with a 8.53 ERA and a 1.90 WHIP. Schwimer has now pitched in 17 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 1-2 with a 6.10 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP. The Phillies hope that Schwimer is better for them this time around.
