To make room for Placido Polanco, the Phillies released veteran infielder Juan Castro. Seeing time at second, third and short, the 38-year-old infielder hit .198/.237/.238 (27 OPS+) in 136 plate appearances. Had it not been for injuries and uncertainty surrounding Jimmy Rollins' calf, it's likely he would have been gone sooner. The move means Greg Dobbs and Cody Ransom will stay for now. Castro signed a $750k Major League contract with a 2011 club option last December, which looks even more foolish now than it did back then.
