The Phillies have designated left-handed reliever J.C. Romero for assignment and recalled Vance Worley in a corresponding move. The Phillies will now have 10 days to either trade or waive Romero, but the move generally leads to a player's release.

Romero, 35, was an extremely valuable reliever for the Phillies in 2007 and 2008 after coming over in a trade from the Red Sox. In 2008, he appeared in 81 games, compiling a 2.75 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 59 innings. He only appeared in 21 games the following season, as he tested positive for PEDs. This season, Romero has appeared in 24 games and has a 3.86 ERA, but he's given up 16 hits and 12 walks in 16 1/3 innings. He signed a $1.35 million deal to return to the Phillies for the 2011 season.

This just made my day! Now, we just need to get Worley in the starting rotation and ditch Kendrick (yes I know he won the other day but he still terifies me)...

Thanks for the great work in '08, JC.  But this was WAY overdue.  Worst ball/strike ratio of any reliever in baseball over the past 2 seasons!
