Since my last release post, I’ve discovered that four more Phillies minor leaguers have been released.
Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, a Cuban, was given $12 million over four years but had only appeared in 5 1/3 major league innings.
Cody Forsythe, who played in Clearwater last season was a surprising release.
Calvin Rayburn was a bit of a surprise as he had pitched just the day before.
Finally, Panamanian catcher Jose Mayorga was also released.
As someone who knows quite a few of these guys, in this case Rayburn and Mayorga, it’s a tough thing to see. I wish them the best and hope they fine another team soon.
