Roster Shuffling- Who’s Where After the Phillies Trades?


Now that the Phillies have traded away Cole Hamels, Jonathan Papelbon, Jake Diekman, and Ben Revere, there’s a ton of roster moves that followed. Obviously they start with all of these guys being removed from the roster. Here’s what I have:

  • Matt Harrison, obtained for Cole Hamels, has been added to the 40 man roster, and 25 man roster, and placed on the 15-Day Disabled List.
  • Nick Pivetta, obtained in the deal for Papelbon, has been assigned to Reading.
  • David Buchanan has been re-called from Lehigh Valley, replacing Cole Hamels in the rotation and on the 25 man roster.
  • Aaron Harang came off the 15-Day DL, and replaced Jonathan Papelbon on the roster.
  • Seth Rosin was outrighted off of the 40 man roster to AAA Lehigh Valley.
  • Jerad Eickhoff, obtained for Cole Hamels, was assigned to AAA Lehigh Valley.
  • Jordan Danks has been re-called from AAA Lehigh Valley to replace Ben Revere on the 25 man roster.
  • Nick Williams and Jake Thompson, obtained in the Hamels trade, were assigned to Reading.
  • Jorge Alfaro, obtained in the Hamels trade, was assigned to Reading, and placed on the 7-Day DL there.
  • Dalier Hinojosa was added to the 40 man and 25 man rosters, and called up to replace Jake Diekman.
  • Alfaro and Eickhoff were added to the 40 man roster.
  • Jimmy Cordero, obtained for Ben Revere, was assigned to Reading.
  • Alec Asher, obtained for Hamels, and Alberto Tirado, obtained for Revere, have not yet been assigned.
  • Kelly Dugan was promoted to AAA Lehigh Valley.

Side note here- I can now spell Eickhoff and Asher. The IronPigs roster is now at 25 players, with Asher not yet assigned there, five players on the DL, and one player listed as a “reserve.” Reading has 24 players, with 5 players on the DL, and one “temporary inactive” player. Clearwater has 25 players, with 3 on the DL. With two players to assign yet, the Phillies will need at least one roster move to make both fit.

This now makes the big league roster:

  • Starting Pitchers- Harang, Williams, Nola, Morgan, Buchanan
  • Line-Up- Hernandez, Herrera, Franco, Howard, Brown, Asche, Galvis, Ruiz
  • Bullpen- Giles, Garcia, De Fratus, Araujo, Gomez, Neris, Hinojosa
  • Bench- Rupp, Blanco, Ruf, Francoeur, Danks
  • 15 Day DL- Utley, Billingsley, Harrison
  • 60 Day DL- Hollands, Lee, Pettibone
  • 40 man, non-active: Biddle, Eickhoff, Gonzalez, Ogando, Rodriguez, Alfaro, Joseph, Altherr, Dugan

The Phillies have 37 of their 40 man slots filled right now. They have 25 of their 25 man spots filled.
