2014 Spring Training

Phillies Release INF Ronny Cedeno

430592The Phillies have announced the release of  veteran backup infielder Ronny Cedeno, according to multiple reports on Twitter. He was hitting .182/.250/.273 in 13 games this Spring as a non-roster invitee.

After Kevin Frandsen was optioned to Lehigh Valley (AAA) on Sunday, the backup shortstop spot on the bench is down to just two in-house candidates: Cesar Hernandez (.281/.314/.313) and Reid Brignac (.353/.476/.529).  Freddy Galvis remains sidelined indefinitely with a MRSA infection.

The Phillies could look outside the organization for help, as well. As Todd Zolecki and Mett Gelb point out, Cesar Izturis is available.
