In a move that is not altogether surprising, today the Phillies have called up LF Cody Asche, and in the corresponding roster move, have designated Grady for assignment.
The Phillies OF situation is quite crowded at the moment, and Grady wasn’t exactly lighting up the place. Although, in May he improved greatly from a paltry April.
If he clears waivers in the next 24 hours, the Phillies then have 10 days to trade or outright release him. OR assign him to AAA Lehigh Valley, which is a move he can reject as a result of his accrued MLB time.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
