Phillies Claim Infielder Olmedo

The Phillies picked up Ray Olmedo off waivers today. The reserve infielder hit .216 with 0 HR in 51 AB for Toronto last season. He was placed on the 40-man roster, and John Ennis was taken off.

If anything, Eric Bruntlett now has competition for the 25-man roster, but this move is puzzling. Olmedo is no offensive force, and Bruntlett is better defensively. Why waste the cash on this guy when they need pitching?
