Phils Part Ways with RHP Juan Morillo

News that was first reported on Twitter by yours truly...on Monday, the Phillies released righty pitcher Juan Morillo.

Morillo, a 29-year-old veteran, was signed by the Phillies as a minor league free agent in May, 2011, while he was recovering from elbow surgery. In 2012, the Dominican born hurler tallied a 1-2 record with a 5.34 ERA combined in 40 games with the Double-A Reading Phillies and the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

In 2001, Morillo broke into the pro ranks after signing as an amateur free agent with Colorado. He went on to pitch in six games with the Rockies in the majors. Morillo also spent time with the Twins and pitched in the Japanese Pacific League in 2010.

Harry Kalas Phorever...

Legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas passed away today. Harry collapsed while preparing to call today's game against the Washington Nationals. So many phans will feel as though we've lost a member of our own families. I feel as though I've lost a part of myself, but Harry enhanced my love of the great sport we call baseball and I will always carry that love, and Harry, in my heart. I've stated on this page before that I consider Harry more of a Phillie than anyone who wears the uniform as an active member of the roster. Harry Kalas was a Phillie. Moreso, Harry Kalas was the Phillies. Please share your thoughts and memories of Harry in the comments section, or send them to PhoulBallz (at) verizon (dot) net.
