Outfielder Tyson Gillies cleared waivers and was outrighted off the the Phillies’ 40-man roster. He will remain on the Triple-A Lehigh Valley roster.

PhilliesNation’s minor league insider Jay Floyd contacted Gillies, who was one of three players acquired in the 2009 trade that sent Cliff Lee to Seattle, for comment today, but the 25-year-old British Columbia native declined to offer any thoughts.

Gillies, who has had repeated disciplinary concerns since joining the Phillies organization and reportedly had a verbal bout with coaches over being removed from a game last week, is batting .217 with two homers and 10 RBI in 37 games with the IronPigs this year.
