The Philadelphia Phillies have released 32-year old righty reliever Edward Mujica, at his request.  He was a little irritated that the Phillies continued to pass him up when they needed a reliever.  Mujica pitched in 36 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Phillies and he was 0-3 with 23 saves, a 3.69 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  Mujica has pitched in 494 games (4 starts) in his first 10 years in the show and he is 24-28 with 50 saves, a 3.85 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.  He should have an easy time finding a new team.
