The Philadelphia Phillies have designated 25-year old lefty reliever Daniel Stumpf for assignment. Stumpf pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Phillies this year and he was 0-0 with a 10.80 ERA and a 2.20 WHIP. He gave up 9 hits (1 homer) and 2 walks while whiffing 2 batters in his 5 innings with the Phillies. Stumpf will have to be offered back to the Kansas City Royals if he clears waivers, as the Phillies took him in the Rule 5 Draft last winter.
UPDATE: (7/25/2016) – The Phillies have returned Daniel Stumpf to the Royals.
