Awww Schlit: Brian’s gone


Via Todd Zolecki, the Phillies have claimed reliever Brian Schlitter off waivers from the Yankees, who designated him for assignment yesterday to make room on the 40-roster for Andruw Jones. Schlitter, who was originally claimed off waivers from the Cubs last month, was actually in camp this morning and was scheduled to throw a bullpen session at some point today. Not sure if that happened, but Phillies camp isn’t far away from Tampa at all.

So I guess Schlitter is this year’s Shane Lindsay. Barely had time to get to know the guy.

    (starts slow clap for the title)

  3. FIPster Doofus says:

    The Yankees’ 2011 season is already in the Schlitter.

  4. BTG says:

    Another opportunity down the schlitter. Too-bad, because I was looking forward to see his schlit-finger pitch.

  5. BTG says:

    Perhaps a better headline for this post would have been “Schlitt Doesn’t Happen” (last one, I promise)

  6. mike_h says:

    Rothchild will probably be pissed

  7. Mike: do you think letting him go is worth Corona?
