More Phillies Prospects Released

Word out of Clearwater on Sunday had more names than the ones I reported being released. Confirmation of those names came on Monday, when Phillies Vice President of Alumni Relations Larry Shenk noted on his blog that Luis Gonzalez, Stefan Jarrin and Moises Rivas had all been cut the day prior, while David Newmann had been released that morning.

Gonzalez, a lefty hurler, pitched with short-season Class A Williamsport last season, posting a 0-3 record with a save and a 4.62 ERA in 16 outings. The Dominican born 20-year-old was originally signed in February, 2010.

Jarrin, a second baseman, was the player to be named later from Los Angeles in the Shane Victorino trade last year. Acquired in September, following the regular season, the 20-year-old never actually played a game in the Phils organization.

Rivas, a righty pitcher, sported a 15-4 record along with a 3.27 ERA over three pro seasons in 45 outings. The 22-year-old Venezuelan was originally signed by the Phillies in July, 2009.

Newmann, another left-hander pitcher, was signed by the Phils as a free agent last month. The 27-year-old was a 4th round draft choice by Tampa Bay in 2007.
