The Phillies have released 35-year old righty reliever Chad Durbin.  Durbin pitched in 16 games (0 starts) for the Phillies this year and he was 1-0 with a 9.00 ERA and a 2.13 WHIP.  Durbin pitched in 210 games (0 starts) in his four years with the Phillies and he was 12-7 with 3 saves, a 3.98 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.  Durbin did the best work of his major league career with the Phillies, but he was pretty awful this year.  The Phillies should be o.k. without him moving forward.
