Brian Schlitter was drafted by the Phillies in 2007, traded to the Cubs in 2008 for Scott Eyre, and now has returned. The Phillies claimed the right-hander off waivers from the New York Yankees on Tuesday.
Matt Gelb: Schlitter pitched in seven major-league games for the Cubs in 2010 and had a 12.38 ERA. The Yankees picked him up off waivers in January and released him earlier this week. In 37 triple-A games, Schlitter had a 3.15 ERA.
Andrew Carpenter has been designated for assignment to make room for Schittler.
