Former Phillies hurler David Herndon has returned to action following Tommy John surgery last year. A Rule 5 pick from the Angels in 2009, Herndon appeared in 97 games with the Phils from 2010-2012. The 27-year-old was claimed off waivers by Toronto following last season and soon ended up in the Yankees' organization after the Blue Jays showed they weren't committed to him. Now, 14 games into his season, the owner of a 3.85 career big league ERA, Herndon, has become a contributor out of the Double-A Trenton Thunder bullpen as he works his way back to the big leagues, following his ailment.
Herndon tossed two scoreless frames against the Reading Fightin Phils on Friday. Below, you can see footage of the righty hurler striking out two former top Phillies draft picks, Zach Collier and Kelly Dugan.
