We've heard a few of these players names now for a while on the Phillies, they almost feel like family, but in the business world of baseball, a lot of the players that we become familiar with are dealt off the team after the season every year.
This year's group of names that aren't with the Phillies anymore are:
- Michael Martinez
- Pete Orr
- Zack Minor
- Tyler Cloyd
- Raul Valdes
All of these players are out for making room for some new players that may be joining the Phillies team soon.
Many Phillies observers still can't believe that John Mayberry Jr. is still a part of the Phillies plans, and for now it appears that he is, but you never know when you could be dealt for either another player or that you just don't fit in with future plans of a team.
We'll see what moves Ruben Amaro Jr. comes up with now, the offseason is well underway for the Phillies, we are all waiting to see what happens next on this Philles team.
