Jon Coutlangus missed all of 2010 recovering from arm surgery.
The Reds were the last to enjoy Coutlangus’ services back in 2007, when the 30-year-old left-hander pitched to a 4.38 ERA and 38/27 K/BB ratio in 41 innings. The Diamondbacks then received Coutlangus in a one-for-one swap with Cincinnati, but the reliever remained below the big league belt for the next two seasons, pitching in fits and starts in the Pacific Coast League. Should the Phillies receive Coutlangus, he’s likely to stay south for extended work until the Phillies are satisfied. [Rotoworld]
