Roster Moves: Phillies reassign three players to minor league camp
With just four days until Opening Day, the Phillies continued to reassign players to minor league camp today. RHP Dillon Maples, INF Yairo Munoz, and INF Ronald Torreyes have been reassigned to minor-league camp, according to the team.
Ronald Torreyes is being sent down to the minors, as a depth piece in emergency situations. Torreyes hit .214/.267/.286 this spring, with two doubles, six hits, and four runs scored in 19 at-bats. Torreyes was one of the bright spots of the 2021 Phillies, being a solid utility man off the bench when injuries struck the team.
Dillon Maples was signed to a minor-league deal back in March, and will officially head back down to Triple-A. Maples threw 2.2 innings this spring, tallying a 16.88 ERA, allowing 6 earned runs.
Yairo Munoz hit .176/.176/.176 this spring, tallying three hits and one RBI in 17 at-bats. Munoz came over from Boston, where he hit .308/.341/.444 with their Triple-A team in 2021.
Final cuts will take place over the next few days, and some interesting names could be on the fringe. Alec Bohm and Nick Maton are fighting for a spot(s) on the roster, while many bullpen arms are still throwing for a job. Joe Girardi will have plenty of decisions to make over the next three days, as the team needs to be down to 28 players by Opening Day.
