2013 Spring Training

Pitcher Austin Hyatt Released

http://www.amsterdammohawks.com/images/Austin_Hyatt.jpgJeff Schuler of the Allentown Morning Call is reporting that the Phillies have released Austin Hyatt. Hyatt, 26, was a 15th round pick out of the University of Alabama in 2009 and was steadily climbing the Phillies ranks before struggling mightily (2-7, 6.33 ERA, 1.630 WHIP in 11 starts) with the IronPigs. Hyatt was believed to be a rotation stopgap candidate as recently as Spring 2012, starting the Phillies Spring Opener but has since been jumped in the developmental ranks by Tyler Cloyd, Ethan Martin, Adam Morgan, Jonathan Pettibone, and others. Schuler speculates the IronPigs rotation will most certainly include Cloyd, Pettibone, Martin, Morgan, and B.J. Rosenberg, a sentiment echoed by Matt Provence, the voice of the IronPigs.
