List of “Unaccounted For” Phillies Minor League Players

As a blogger and Phillies fan, this has been one of the most difficult years. There has been very little information released by the team as to whom they have released. They have not been forthcoming with any of this information. 

In fact, the final rosters were not even made available to the general public. I luckily have a number of eyes on the inside who provided a copy of the roster I posted earlier. 

Baseball Ross and I have spent the last hour or so pouring over all the rosters that have been released this year and compared it to the final assignments to come up with a list of players that are “Missing in Action”. I hesitate to say released as there is no official word and for all we know the player could have been sent back to the Dominican academy or retired and it’s not fair to say “released”. So here is the list of players that are no longer on any of the rosters.


  • Jesse Beal RHP
  • Kale Fultz RHP
  • Scott Harris LHP
  • Scott Hoffman RHP
  • Carlos Indriago RHP
  • Ulises Joaquin RHP
  • Jordan Kurakawa RHP
  • Will Morris RHP
  • Jose Nin RHP
  • Geury Ortiz RHP 
  • Oskerelly Sanchez LHP
  • David Whitehead RHP

Position Players:

  • Luis Espiritu INF
  • Daniel Garner C
  • Christian Marrero OF
  • Luke Maglich OF
  • Evan Rogers INF

    Thanks for the post. Luke Maglich is an outfielder, not a pitcher. The MiLB site says Christian Marrero is playing for the Tigres de Quintan Roo in the Mexican League this year.

      Thanks. As of the time of printing, there was no official announcement of where the players were going, which is why I listed them as “unaccounted for”.

      I may do another post in a few days once the official release info is made.

        Is it late this year? Seems to me that by the time rosters were announced we always knew who was released at the same time. Or is my memory faulty? I’m really hoping Luke Maglich wasn’t released. Working for the Cutters last year I talked to him several times and met his family and girlfriend (a beauty). Nice people and I thought he was a good ballplayer.

        Threshers was released today. They have been really slow.

    Also, as of today, Herlis Rodriguez also seems to have dropped off. Originally listed in Clearwater, he didn’t appear on the opening day roster released today as well.

      Herlis is dressed for the preseason game vs Lakewood. He is still with the team!

        So strange that he’s not really listed anywhere, but I guess they haven’t really finalized anything yet. According to Baseball America’s transactions from 3/24 to 3/31, this entire list of players has been released, with the exception of Scott Harris – no mention of him. Also, for some reason they list Taylor Featherston as released even though he appears to still be on the Lehigh Valley roster.

        From what I can tell the statuses of the following players are what’s currently in question:

        Taylor Featherston (LV) – released or not?
        Tyler Goeddel (REA) – DFA’ed – waiting to see what happens there
        Herlis Rodriguez (CLW) – still with the team, but not listed anywhere
        Scott Harris (CLW) – allegedly retired?
        Derek Campbell (CLW) – DL?
        Zach Green (CLW) – DL?
        Grant Dyer (LAK) – DL?

      • Baseball Betsy April 5, 2017 / 8:30 pm

        Zach Green and Derek Campbell are in the DL as is Dyer. Herlis was announced as part of the Threshers at the team party tonight as is Ranfi Casimiro. Tyler Goeddell was claimed by Cincinnati on waivers this afternoon.

        Scott Harris was not announced as part of Clearwater and supposedly has retired.

    Looked back a few weeks on BBA. For the week of March 25-31: Released: RHP Jesse Beal | RHP Kale Fultz | RHP Carlos Indriago | RHP Ulises Joaquin | RHP Jordan Kurokawa | RHP Will Morris | RHP Jose Nin | LHP Sean Burnett | C Ryan Hanigan | C Bryan Holaday | 2B Luis Espiritu | 2B Taylor Featherston | OF Chris Coghlan | OF Christian Marrero. Acquired: C James Lovett from Marlins for cash. For the week of March 18-24: Released: RHP Scot Hoffman | RHP Geury Ortiz | LHP Oskerlly Sanchez | 3B Evan Rogers | OF Luke Maglich. For the week of March 11-17: Released: RHP David Whitehead, C Daniel Garner. Taylor Featherston is still on LV roster so I don’t know why BBA lists him.

      I haven’t updated this as it is now available in other sites…it hadn’t been updated as BBA was backlogged or not updated when I originally posted. Thanks for your hard work.
