The Phillies have dealt 27-year old righty reliever Michael Schwimer to the Blue Jays for 22-year old lefty swinging 1B Art Charles.  Schwimer pitched in 35 games (0 starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 2-1 with a 4.46 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP.  He pitched in 47 games (0 starts) in his two years with the Phillies and he was 3-2 with a 4.62 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP.  Art Charles played in 64 games in Rookie+A-ball last year for the Blue Jays and he was 50 for 212 (.236 avg, .909 OPS) with 37 runs scored, 13 homers, 34 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  He has now played in 169 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 140 of 585 (.239 avg, .840 OPS) with 100 runs scored, 28 homers, 108 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  Schwimer was going to have a hard time winning a spot in the Phillies’ bullpen, so they moved him for a prospect.
