Phillies Have Interest in Ramiro Pena, Roster Moves
by Mike D.
According to George King of the NY Post, the Phillies are interested in the Yankees’ utilityman Ramiro Pena. Chase Utley has suffered injuries with both knees and the Phillies are looking for infield help. Pena really doesn’t have a whole lot of value as a trade chip – so if he does get traded, don’t expect much in the way of return.
The Yankees have also made some roster moves, via Anthony McCarron of the NY Daily News. Pena has been optioned to Triple-A, and Manny Delcarmen, Colin Curtis, Jose Gil, Kevin Whelan, and Cole Garner have all been reassigned to minor league camp. The Yankees active roster now sits at 31, so we’ll be seeing more roster moves in the coming days.
