PN’s Jay Floyd has learned that the Phillies have traded righty minor league hurler Michael Cisco to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
The 25-year-old was originally selected in the 36th round of the 2008 draft and is the grandson of former Phillies pitching coach Galen Cisco.
Combined over his last two seasons with Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Cisco tallied a 13-3 record along with six saves and a 1.70 ERA in 69 outings, all in relief.
*Update*- According to CSN’s Jim Salisbury, the Phils obtain no compensation in the deal. Also, take a look at details on today’s minor league releases by clicking here.
