Phillies claim Schlitter, DFA Carpenter

15 Feb

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.
