The Phillies released right-hander Chad Gaudin after he failed his physical.
“We didn’t feel comfortable with the exam yesterday, so we decided to let him go,” Ruben Amaro Jr. said.
The Phillies signed Gaudin to a Minor League contract. He had a good chance to make the team as a swing man, but now the Phillies must find somebody else for that role.
“It hurts,” Amaro said. “The roles he could fill as a long guy that can sit around for 10 days and not pitch then pitch as a starter … all those things you’d like a veteran guy to do. We’re going to have to find out if that guys in our camp.”
