Jim Salisbury of Comcast Sportsnet is reporting that the Phillies are returning RHP Kevin Munson back to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Munson, who was originally a 4th round pick in the 2010 draft out of James Madison University, was taken by the Phillies in the Rule 5 draft back in December.

Munson was a closer in college, and the Phillies thought they would be able to get a live arm that could bolster the bullpen. In 5 games this spring (7 IP) Munson posted a 1.29 ERA, but walked 8 batters. With Munson being returned to Arizona it  leaves the Phillies’ current big league roster at 31 players.
