Phils Option Two More to Minors

The Phillies made two more moves this morning sending Michael Schwimer,  and Phillippe Aumont to Minor League camp.  Schwimmer and Aumont were vying for spots in the Phillies shrinking bullpen, but for now will have a place with the Iron Pigs.

Schwimer has seen time with the big league club, but struggled a bit in Spring Training, so likely the Phillies would like to see him get more time in Triple-A where he can pitch regularly, but would most likely be one of the first names called should an injury occur.

Aumont has a really big arm, but right now just seems to lack a bit of control and consistency.  A little polishing of his stuff and he could be back with the Phils before the season is over.   He has made great progress however from where he was a year ago.

Keep up with me on Facebook, and Twitter.
