Seems the Phillies grew tired of Michael Schwimer schtick and decided to part ways with him yesterday by shipping him north of the border to America's hat (aka- Canada). He has annoyed/angered the organization over the past two seasons with tweets about not being called up from the minors when he believed was the right time and his grievance against them for shipping him back to the minors when he claimed to be injured and therefore should have been on the MLB disabled list collecting a MLB paycheck and accruing service time. In other words, a pain in the ass. Just look at that picture...so melancholy and disgruntled.
The Toronto Blue Jays get a 27 year old reliever with a 4.62 ERA over 47 appearances, 48.2 IP, with 52 K, and a 1.40 WHIP during his time with the Phils. His minor league stats are much more impressive- 185 G, 252.1 IP, 332 K, 2.60 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 55 SV.
In exchange, the Jays sent first baseman Art Charles to Philly. He's 22 years old, hasn't played above low-A ball yet, and has a .239 batting average over parts of 3 seasons. In other words, not a prospect. He does have power and on base skills though, so maybe he'll have some redeeming value, but not likely.
