Since there is usually no “official” announcement of players who have been released, the way we here in Clearwater find out is usually by word of mouth. Sometimes we can be at the Carpenter Complex and see players leaving or hear from others who was released. While Baseball Ross usually hear of a release in this manner, we never post about it until we can verify it from an official source like MiLB or the Phillies page.
Today, I say goodbye to my friend Harold Guererro. Guererro, a LHP was in Clearwater last year and he was always nice to me. He was released March 16.
Also released on March 16th were:
Victor Delgado (RHP Lakewood), Ryne Frankoff (LHP GCL Phillies) and Kevin Walsh (RHP GCL Phillies).
They were in addition to Art Charles, Tim Zier and Brian Pointer that I mentioned in my last post.
For anyone who follows the minor leaguers as closely as Ross and I do, “cut days” are the worst. As always, we wish them the best and hope they get to follow their dreams.
