Roster Battles Newsbeat

Sunday, March 25, 2018

Rupp sent out to make room for Drew Hutchison on Phillies Roster

Remember Drew Hutchison? He’s back. In NRI/long reliever form. Giving the Phillies two long relievers, along with Mark Leiter Jr. This on a team that is also expected to have a short bench, making an unnecessary choice between Roman Quinn and Jesmuel Valentin for the last spot. The obsession with relievers only gets worse.

Sad to see Rupp go after 4 1/2 seasons dating back to when there were still World Series winners all over the squad, but Andrew Knapp has been better than expected (his plate discipline can only be described as “amazing, for a backup catcher”) and Rupp has been worse.
