Take this information with a grain of salt. According to "Phanatic's Girl," a trustworthy minor league poster on PhilliesPhans.com, former top prospect Tim Moss has seen his final days in a Phillies uniform.
Along with Moss, the list includes Bryan Hansen, Sam Orr, Dennis Diaz, Wilfredo Laureano, Zac Cline, Cory Dueitt, Maximo De la Cruz, Matt Olson, Talley Haines, William Capps, Michael Deveaux, Curt Miaso, Evan Tartaglia, Tom Gornati, Jacob Dempsey, John Brownell, Robert Moron, Cody Montgomery, Mark Kelly, Lenin Gazo, Nick Hall, Alan Schoenberger.
Moss, a third round pick in the June 2003 draft, tanked at Double-A Reading last season and was eventually sent back to Clearwater. His strikeout totals were downright shocking; at Reading, he fanned 82 times in 206 at bats. That's 40 percent. He actually started his Reading career 0-for-25.
Savvy readers will also recognize the name Wifredo Laureano, the 6-foot-6, 170-pound Dominican pitcher who was acquired from Milwaukee in the David Bell trade, thus continuing the Phillies well-documented trend of trading players for absolutely nothing.
Update: The Phillies have also released veteran first baseman Randall Simon, and Moss' release was officially announced by the team.
