To make room for Cody Asche’s return to the roster and the outfield the Phillies have designated for assignment Grady Sizemore.

There was some speculation that Philadelphia would trade Ben Revere and that may still happen, but in the meantime they cut bait on the 32-year-old former All-Star who’s struggled to re-establish himself as a useful regular since injuries derailed his career.

Sizemore hit just .250 with three homers and a .657 OPS in 99 games for the Phillies since they acquired him in the middle of last season and he hasn’t topped a .725 OPS in a season since 2009.
