Afternoon update: Phillies release lefty Bill White
White, 31, was out of baseball in 2009 and last pitched in 2008 as a member of the Texas Rangers, where he combined to go 4-1 with six saves and a 3.48 ERA in 51 relief appearances between Triple-A Oklahoma and Class-A Bakersfield. He appeared in eight games for Texas in '08. A non-roster invitee at the start of camp, he was among the first cuts. (the move was first reported by CSN’s Jim Salisbury via Twitter).
