The Philadelphia Phillies have designated 27-year old lefty reliever Mario Hollands for assignment. Hollands pitched in 19 games (0 starts) in A+AA+AAA-ball for the Phillies last year and he was 0-o with a 3.76 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. Holland pitched in 50 games (0 starts) for the Phillies in 2014 and he was 2-2 with a 4.40 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. The Phillies needed Holland’s 40-man roster spot to activate 25-year old lefty reliever Daniel Stumpf off the restricted list.
UPDATE: (7/14/2016) – The Phillies have outrighted Mario Hollands to AAA.
