Earlier today the Phillies sent RJ Swindle back down to AAA Lehigh Valley. In his place the Phils have brought up pitcher Joe Bisenius.
The righty Bisenius is 2-4 with a 4.78 ERA in 27 appearances between Reading and Lehigh Valley. Swindle had a 7.71 ERA in 4.2 innings with the Phils.
It wasn’t hard to see that no matter how great the Swindle story seemed, he looked overmatched against big league hitting. Even lefties were getting their bats on him. The Phils need to find something fresh while the bullpen limps.
