The Philadelphia Phillies have released 27-year old righty reliever Yoervis Medina.  Medina has not pitched at all this year after hurting his elbow in March.  Medina has pitched in 146 games (0 starts) in his first three years in the majors and he is 10-9 with 2 saves, a 3.08 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  He will likely hook on with another team, as long as his elbow is healthy.
